Ian Begley: The Knicks and Luke Kornet have agreed to a one-year deal, sources confirm. Kornet, a restricted free agent who was on a 2-way contract last season, agreed to a one-year deal for $1.6M. That’s an exception that won’t require cap space. This also will allow the Knicks to sign another player to a 2-way contract. They’ve agreed with Allonzo Trier on a 2-way deal. They can have as many as two 2-way players on the roster. Kornet’s deal was first reported by the New York Post.

Kornet wasn’t certain how long the free-agent process would take, and sources said a couple of teams expressed preliminary interest entering Sunday’s first full day of free agency. The Knicks also drafted project center Mitchell Robinson in the second round, making Kornet a further question mark. “The Knicks have definitely showed interest with their development,” Kornet said. “They’ve enjoyed having me around. I had a great year here. I would love to be back in New York. I’m kind of waiting to hear. Another year here would be something I’d be excited to have.”
