If Bacon, who turns 26 on Monday, is cut, he will get a $50,000 guarantee if he plays with the Westchester Knicks of the G-League. There’s a chance the final roster spot will become a battle between Bacon and Argentine combo guard Luca Vildoza, who has a four-year, $13.6 million non-guaranteed deal. Vildoza, 25, already got paid for the first season despite signing in May. Bacon is a Creative Artists Agency client — team president Leon Rose’s former firm. But multiple sources contend the Knicks are taking a flier on Bacon because of Tom Thibodeau’s close friend, Steve Clifford, the former Charlotte and Orlando coach who now is a Nets consultant.
Storyline: Dwayne Bacon Free Agency
Meanwhile, the Knicks’ other international signing, Spanish leaguer Luca Vildoza, has not panned out. He’s missed the last three games with a sore foot after going scoreless in the opening two contests. He also had a spotty Olympics for Argentina. Signed last May, Vildoza got a four-year, $13.4 million non-guaranteed deal and already collected the first season. The Knicks have until the day after the season opener to release him before the second year of the deal is guaranteed.
