The Knicks used the majority of their noncontributing middle-level exception to sign Donte DiVincenzo to a four-year, $50 million deal on Saturday. In doing so, New York is capped at $172 million during the 2023-24 season.
They currently have 14 players under contract and an estimated $162 million in player salary. If they want to add more free agents, they should use the Veteran’s Minimum Exception. Barring a swap, their rotation is apparently locked in for 2023-24.
Based on the current roster, Tom Thibodeau could use Josh Hart or RJ Barrett off the bench as a power forward in smaller lineups. Thibodeau was a fan of the Jericho Sims – Isaiah Hartenstein forward last season. So he could go to that lineup against bigger reserve formations.
