Mitchell Robinson grips New York jersey

Mitchell Robinson grips New York jersey

The Knicks have already signed Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson to new deals this summer, but the team is reportedly open to handing out another new deal to one of their big men.

The Knicks are open to giving Mitchell Robinson an extension prior to the start of the regular season “as long as it’s not crazy,” according to Marc Berman of the New York Post,

Per Berman, league insiders estimate a potential next contract for Robinson somewhere in the four-year, $44 million range.

Robinson’s athletic ability and shot-blocking prowess are undeniable, but durability has been an issue. Injuries to his hand and foot limited him to just 31 games last year, though he started 29 of them.

When healthy, Robinson has proven to be a solid anchor for Tom Thibodeau’s defense, though Noel and Gibson have both stepped up when called upon. In his three seasons as a Knick, Robinson has averaged 8.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.
