New York Knicks, Porzingis do not sign contract extension

We already knew it, but now the official announcement has arrived; Kristaps Porzingis has not signed an extension with New York Knicks. However, there is nothing to worry about, as the Knicks strategy is clear. The front office of New York does not want to weigh down the salary cup in view of next summer, when the Knicks will try to convince an All-Star to join the team.

In all this, Porzingis will not change anything economically with New York that will offer him a contract at the maximum salary allowed, which is $ 158 million for the next five years. The agreement with the player is already with the Knicks leadership who will first try to sign a big player to support Porzingis, and the Latvian will then sign his new contract.

Meanwhile, the star player will be able to recover from the knee injury that arrived at the best time for Porzingis. But the sure thing is that 2018-19 will not be an easy season for the Knicks and new head coach David Fizdale, who will have to bet on the rookies in what promises to be a new season of suffering for the Knicks.
