The New York Knicks and All-Star forward Julius Randle are reportedly “intending to talk” about a contract extension during the 2021 NBA offseason.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported Thursday that the Knicks may add four years to his current deal, which will run for next season, but they can only offer a 20% salary increase, meaning the situation could drop to “as much as Randle. wants to remain a Knick. “

Randle has been the cornerstone of the franchise’s breakthrough as he tries to secure his first place in the playoffs in eight years. He averaged 24.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.3 three in 65 appearances during the 2020-21 season.
