The drafting of 7-footer Mitchell Robinson in the second round Thursday has put 7-foot-1 center Luke Kornet’s future in flux, according to sources.

Kornet was on a two-way contract last season after being undrafted last June and the Knicks have extended a qualifying offer for another two-way deal ahead of his restricted-free agency.

If another club gives the former Vanderbilt star an offer for the regular minimum contract for a second-year player ($1.2M), there could be a chance the Knicks don’t match it, pending Mitchell Robinson’s summer-league performance.

According to a source, there will be a handful of clubs with a passing interest.
