I wish but he’s a leader in the lockeroom and has 2 years left on his deal sigh. Maybe he gets back to form next year ? Another sigh lol.



For all intents and purposes, it's only one year. 2019-2020 only guaranteed for 1m.

If it makes you feel any better, the last year of LFT's deal isn't guaranteed

Perry doing good with the small deals. Took a low risk move on Mud that may not pan out but, not a bad move. Stopping Mills from giving Melo away to Houston was HUGE. The draft and the summer decision making process are next. The HC? I think that is as big as the draft. I'm not sold on Jeff. I can't see them thinking he's good. Especially if he is really NOT tanking. I liked how the team was looking early this year but, he has been bad since December.

Love the Williams signing though. Good job.

He signed Galloway to a similar contract. Not sure anyone else.

I was thinking more along the lines of the Joakim Noah debacle. to guarantee 4 years to a guy with the injury history that he has was completely crazy and you're still going to haunt us for a couple of years to come.

I think he (Chamberlain) had similar athleticism, skill level and basketball IQ as Javale McGee,

That scust face Perry always has on when the camera cuts to him during games makes me think he doesn’t either.

Dumb move by Williams. HE forgot this is the knicks. they will sign him, and next year he will ride the bench all year long and DNPs.
Just like we did with all the other 10 day contract guys.

Because they sucked.

So far, Perry's grade has been an "A-" I wanted us to be sellers (LEE, Lance, **** Noah if possible) at the trade deadline. But, the MUD trade was solid in theory.

If I had to put money on it, I'd bet that they'd drop Jeff before the draft.

Great move.

Can anyone confirm that this will give us his EBR at the end of the contract? MLE contract if he progresses.
