Finally, a thing (or two) for fans of the New York Knicks to smile about.
The Knicks have agreed to terms with both J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni.
Smith is set to return to Gotham City on a four-year deal that is expected to be worth right around $25 million, while Prigioni has agreed to a three-year deal worth a reported $5 million. The Knicks used a portion of their taxpayer exception to re-sign Prigioni, and now have about $1.75 million of it remaining. They still hope to retain Chris Copeland, but he is receiving tons of interest on the open market.
Even still, on July 4, as scores of Americans settle down in front of their grills and watch some fireworks, Jim Dolan’s annual BBQ extravaganza will probably be a bit more festive than usual.
