The Knicks and second-round pick Mitchell Robinson are finalizing a multi-year agreement that’s expected to include team options, per ESPN sources. Robinson, the No. 36 overall pick, impresses with his athleticism in his Summer League debut with 9 points, 8 rebounds and four blocks. The center didn’t play college basketball last season after reportedly committing to Western Kentucky. He said he instead decided to take the year to work out and prepare for the NBA. The Knicks have been impressed with his comfort level and aggressive nature thus far in Summer League workouts and the win over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. His contract is expected to be at least three seasons. It’s unclear if the Knicks will use the $2.1 million remaining in the mid level exception to sign Robinson.
