The postseason exposed how reliant the Knicks are on Randle offensively and how little weaponry they possess to attack teams in alternate ways. Their second option, guard Derrick Rose, is 32 with a checkered injury history and will be a free agent. Not having Mitchell Robinson’s rim-running certainly hurt against Atlanta, and he’ll be back on one of the league’s most valuable contracts (a mere $1.8 million). More importantly, the Knicks enter the offseason with an estimated $55 million in cap room, a now-established All-Star in his prime in Randle and several good young players to build around. Combine that with the lure of the Big Apple, and this should be the perfect lure for the Knicks to finally get their superstar free agent!

No timetable on Mitchell Robinson return

Mike Vorkunov: Mitchell Robinson’s broken right foot is healing “as planned,” Thibodeau says. Could he be back before end of Knicks season? Thibs: “I don’t want to put any timetable on it bc to be honest I don’t know…We don’t want to take any chances w/ it so we’re going to be very patient” pic.twitter.com/cKHPgzkDiY
Noel signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks. Noel thought he was worth more, but there were no bigger offers, and he eventually split with his agent, Rich Paul, in December. The former Kentucky product will be a free agent after this season and is having a strong audition. Knicks brass must decide this August whether to extend Robinson’s contract or let him become an unrestricted free agent in 2022. They can give themselves options by bringing back Noel, who is just 27 and a former lottery pick, on a multi-year deal.
