We are a bit shocked that no one as approached you with a contract offer thus far in the FA season. You are coming off the best season of your career and found a way to be a valuable defensive big off the bench. Well, we want you to continue that same role with us Mr. Jeffries. We here in New York value versatility and see you finding minutes at the 3,4, and 5 spots next season. The Knicks are have an incredible amount of talent on our squad and hope you are willing to add to the best bigs rotation in basketball of Blake Griffin, Tyson Chandler, Nick Collison, and Udonis Haslem. This in mind, we are prepared to offer you a vet minimum contract to rejoin the Knicks
Year 1: $1,352,181
Year 2: $1,352,181(PO)
The Knicks are building something special here Jared. Gone are the days of selfish players who are in the game for themselves and not the team. We made it our goal to create an incredibly deep and talented basketball team that plays team basketball first. That sells out on defense for every possession first. That values winning above all else. The Knicks hope for you to return and be apart of our new philosophy.
We hope to hear from you soon Jared,
