Look closer into his numbers the past couple of years. Then go watch his highlights. GM make terrible moves all the time that doesn't speak to the quality of the player. I look at the insanely awful deal Terry Rozier got and wonder how some of these GM's even get their jobs. Burke just two seasons ago when given free reign played at an All-star level for the end of the season. Knicks just decided to tear it all down the following season and go with a youth movement.
Totally agree look at the contract Van Fleet got last year and he's only 1 year and 3 months younger than Burke.
They both averaged the same points but Burke played 8 mins less per game, if He got more consistent minutes I think he could average 13 and 5 at better efficiency like he did in 17-18.
now if He could just up his 3pt% up 2% from the 17-18 season and shoot at 38% He'd get the same type of money or even more.
