Marc Stein wrote in his newsletter et New York Knicks is approaching the renegotiation of an unrestricted free agent Mitchell Robinson: “Monday night also brought the loudest noise I’ve ever heard that a new multi-year contract to keep Mitchell Robinson in New York is coming.” (The article is behind a paid wall.)
Ian Begley has also stated that a deal with Robinson is very likely.
On Saturday, Begley visited Knicks Film School Draft Class podcast about Knicks and Robinson. Begley changed Detroit interest in Mitch and said: “Depending on how things work out, there are still a few candidates Rudy Gobertwhere you could see them coming after Mitchell Robinson.
“I think it’s playing out based on the centers on Mitch’s market. In the end, I assume the money is in a place where Knicks feels happy to bring him back. I know the people there will judge him by how he affects the defense. Defensive coach Tom Thibodeau.
If Detroit doesn’t throw $ 20 million in front of the 7-inch Cajun, Begley thinks Mitch will sign a new deal with New York.
“If Mitch goes elsewhere, I think it would be a sign and an exchange where the Knicks get something back or as part of a deal where the Knicks needed to make room or make money to bring the player back through the trade,” Begley said.
“I don’t think the Knicks would hesitate to bring someone like that Isaiah Hartenstein or Mo Bamba where would you have what they have had for the last few years with Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noelwhen whole … come in and protect the rim.
Begley announced today: “My reading of Robinson and Knicks right now is that the club would feel comfortable responding to an offer in the neighborhood of the mid-level exception (projected at $ 44.5 million over four years).”
He added: “Also, if the Knicks have to deduct a salary to enter into a contract Jalen Brunson or Kyrie Irving or trade Donovan Mitchell (I currently consider all scenarios unlikely), then Robinson may need to be traded as a sweetener.
In other Begley news he reported that the Knicks had contacted the Pistons in the upcoming draft on trading their fifth option. “Doll Reddishthe name came up in the conversation and fits the Detroit timeline.
Of course, it seems that Robinson’s name was supposed to come up in the debate.
In the meantime Eli Becht quoted Heavy.com as an anonymous NBA leader who thinks the Knicks might be interested in replacing Robinson Charlotte Hornet Terry Rozier.
Rozier, a 6-inch defender who scored an average of 19.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.5 rebounds last season, has signed a four-year contract worth $ 96.2 million.
“There is still interest in Terry Rozier,” the CEO said. “Apparently he’s played well in his role, but the Hornets want to give LaMelo more ball, let him take full control of the show and get the pieces that feed him. They’re ready for that. They want a better defensive position, a Type 3 and D man next to him, to be able to move him.
“The Hornets want a very big man and the Knicks could sign Mitchell Robinson,” the CEO said. “It’s really the best deal for both parties.”
No thank you! My intuition says that Leon Rose & Co is more interested in involving a more influential veterinarian or such a young breed Jaden Ivey. Rozier seems more like a last resort than other plans failing.
Here’s a Block Ness monster working to improve his free throws. The goal is 80%! Keep up the good work, Mitch! Peace until next time.
