Knicks Arron Afflalo, Knicks agree on 2-year, $16M deal

Quote:
The New York Knicks and Arron Afflalo agreed to a two-year deal worth $16 million on Thursday, a source told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne.

The agreement includes a player option for the second year of the deal, sources said, which could allow Afflalo to again test free agency after next season.

The deal with Afflalo is the Knicks' first move in free agency but one that should help the struggling franchise, which is coming off a 17-65 season. And it comes at a reasonable cost considering all the money spent on the opening day of free agency Wednesday across the league.

Afflalo is the type of two-way player Knicks coach Derek Fisher can use and should be able to provide the kind of shooting that departed when Tim Hardaway Jr. was traded on draft night in exchange for drafting Notre Dame combo guard Jerian Grant. Afflalo is a 38.5 percent 3-point shooter over his eight-year career and averaged a career-high 18.2 points and 42.7 percent 3-point shooting during the 2013-14 season with the Orlando Magic.

Afflalo also is familiar with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony; the two were teammates with the Denver Nuggets from 2009 to February 2011.

Afflalo is a great pick up for a roster that needs talent.

I don't really agree because I don't think they should be trying to win. I think they should be trying to trade Melo for multiple picks and a young player with potential so that they can tank properly.

Good value, actually. Now, it's going to be problematic if this is the Knicks' marquee move this summer, but individually the signing's a good value.
