Steve Mills was a guest on Stephen A. Smith’s podcast where he covered a wide range of subjects related to the draft, free agency, David Fizdale, and Kristaps Porzingis.
Mills indicated that David Fizdale will travel with Craig Robinson to see Kristaps Porzingis sometime after Summer League. He said he texts with Porzingis often, and has been sending him videos of the guys working out in the gym.
Mills reiterated that the Knicks will not look to sign free agents this summer beyond one-year deals in order to preserve cap space in 2019.
From his comments about the Knicks feeling confident about having max cap space next summer, we can make some reasonable assumptions about how the roster might look heading into their spending splurge.
Steve Mills tells @stephenasmith “we are going to have room for a max contract next summer” which tells us they will likely:
– wait to sign KP
– waive Lance in 2019
– Renounce Baker + Mudiay in 2019
