Storyline: Kristaps Porzingis Free Agency
If the Knicks do not give Kristaps Porzingis a max rookie extension by Oct.15, New York projects to have $31M in room next summer. The room will increase to $38M if Lance Thomas is waived. The forward has a $7.6M non-guaranteed contract. The room does not factor in their 2019 first-round pick or free agent hold of Enes Kanter. The projected max next year for a player with 7-9 years of service is $32.7M and 10+ years of service $38.15M.

A week before the season starts and eight months since his ACL surgery, Kristaps Porzingis’ progress remains limited to a “slow drip” that’s frustrating the All-Star, according to Knicks coach David Fizdale. In other words, Porzingis is still not sprinting and his recovery timetable has not been affected by the start of training camp. He has not ruled out sitting out the entire season. “He’s feeling better every day, but it’s still that frustrating slow drip for him,” the coach said.
