Free agent Tony Wroten and the New York Knicks are finalizing a three-year contract, league sources tell The Vertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 7, 2016
A note on Knicks' Tony Wroten signing, for those curious: I'm told there are "minimal" guarantees in Years 2 and 3. Low-risk play for NY.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) March 7, 2016
Again, Wroten's deal can't be 3 yrs.NY is $3,867,214 over the cap & they already utilized their only exception (which was only 2 yrs anyway)— NBA Cap Strategist (@colezwicker) March 7, 2016
Two clarifications on Wroten:— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) March 7, 2016
Knicks still evaluating him -- deal isn't done.
If he signs, it's 2 years, with minimal guarantee in Year 2
As cap experts have pointed out to me, Knicks can't do a 3-yr deal, because they're over the cap and don't have an exception to use.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) March 7, 2016
Also, hearing it's very unlikely that Wroten plays this season. Health was a serious question when he came back in Philly in December.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) March 7, 2016
