Mitchell Robinson is reportedly staying in New York.
According to Marc Stein, the Knicks are expected to re-sign the center, a report that has been supported by others on the New York beat, including Ian Begley, who says he sees the Knicks signing Robinson to a deal in the ballpark of $44.5 million over four years. He could sign an extension up to $55.6 million.
The two sides were reportedly far apart on extension talks before the season ended, but that gap must be closing as free agency approaches.
After battling injury last season and starting slow due to his recovery from foot surgery, Robinson bounced back this past season to finish with a 76.1 field goal percentage, higher than his league-leading mark of 74.2 during the 2019-20 campaign. He averaged 8.5 points and a career-high 8.6 rebounds per game this past season.
