Knicks: Isaiah Hartenstein’s future revealed

According to HoopsHype’s Mark Deeks: “If you need to save immediate cash, it’s no coincidence that trade deadline acquisition Bojan Bogdanovic has a de facto team option on his $19,032,850 salary for 2024-25 that can be cut for just $2 million.

Deeks added: “In addition to Anunoby, center Isaiah Hartenstein will also be entering free agency following his impressive season, and while Brunson and Randle’s contracts are all secure for next season, they are also all eligible for extensions this summer. In total, then, the Knicks could find themselves tying up several hundred million dollars in player salaries this summer even before any outside acquisitions. This is the side effect of compiling a list of qualities.”
