Carmelo Anthony’s former teammate will sign a $16 million deal with an opt-out option after next season, CBS Sports’ Ken Berger reports.
Despite approximately $27 million in cap space, bringing a marquee free agent to New York could be a hard sell after the Knicks’ franchise-worst 17-65 finish.
If you’re an NBA player, December 25th is really just another day at the office, Christmas is on July 1st.
The two frontcourt players who opted out of their deals last month have agreed to re-sign on multi-year contracts, according to ESPN.com.
Ideally, anyone joining the Knicks should be younger than 30, play both ends of the floor and be a good value. Let’s take a look at the options.
The Knicks need plenty of help after their worst season ever, but they know where it needs to start.
For the third time in six seasons, LeBron James is an unrestricted free agent. The difference this time is he has no plans to move again.
Osi Umenyiora wants to retire, whenever that day comes, as a member of Big Blue. But in the meantime his next stop could be with their MetLife Stadium co-tenants.
The sequel’s on: Revis and Cromartie. Batman and Robin: Part II. Add Buster Skrine and Marcus Gilchrist to the mix and the Jets could have a serious no-fly zone in 2015.
He’s not as sexy as Revis, for sure. But sometimes the smaller offseason moves can affect a unit as profoundly as the big ones.
Let’s take a look at the teams that are sitting pretty and the ones that aren’t as we eagerly await the return of football.
Darrelle Revis is back where he started, and he wants to make good on his vow. That means trying to deliver a Super Bowl title to the Jets.
“You all have been so great to me and honestly I love you all to death for it,” Rolle wrote on Instagram. “Once a Giant always a Giant and I sincerely believe in that.”
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan kicked off free agency with a flurry of moves — including bringing back one of the best players in franchise history.
The real bottom line is this: Even with Darrelle Revis, how much better do you think the Jets got this offseason?
