The New York Knoxerbockers announced today the signing of the 9th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Kevin Knox. According to the press release, the “terms of the deal were not disclosed.” It’s a good thing that the NBA CBA is made public because we do actually know what the rookie-scale contract is worth:
- Year One: $3,183,300
- Year Two: $3,728,100
- Year Three (team option): $3,905,700
- Year Four (team option): $4,975,862
New York tweeted out a photo of the happy Knox family as Kevin’s mother and father stand proudly beside the 18-year-old rookie. But what’s more newsworthy than the signing that was eventually going to happen is that the tiny table... is gone.
Where is that tiny table?! Let’s ignore the tacky, McMansion-style stone countertop for a moment to pay respects to the legendary tiny table. The photo above does add legitimacy to the running theory of The Trump Administration having the table as part of Dolan’s donation to the campaign — can’t have players signing contracts on the tiny table because the table is in Washington D.C.
Could this be a sign for good things to come? New countertop, new era of youth and prosperity? Or is this an omen for more bad things to happen as they are not paying respect to traditions? We will have to wait and see.
And if this is the last time we see the Knicks’ tiny table, let’s all hope that it is in the arms of the angels.
