@KBergCBS: Arron Afflalo has agreed to a free-agent deal with the Knicks, league source tells @CBSSports.

@KBergCBS: Afflalo's deal is two years for $16 million, with the second year being a player option.

Solid contract considering what some people are getting in free agency. Knicks still have around $21M in cap space.

8 million per if I understand correctly? Bargain for this years market. He'll fit well in NY.

Agreed. I wanted Green and Carroll more but to get Afflalo for basically half of what Carroll got is a great price. And he is a playmaker. Phil did a good job here. Is Monroe or Lopez next?

What don't you guys understand about the new cap?

Oh wait...

Nice contract.

Good bargain. Knicks keep flexibility too with it only being a two year deal.

Very good signing. With what all these ****ers are getting this season, this is a bargain.

Not the big fish that NY fans want I'm sure, but a very good piece. Great fit next to Melo, good 3 and D guy

Who would you prefer of the two? Lopez will be cheaper I'm certain and a good fit next to Porzingis (though fit probably doesn't matter at this stage for you guys)

Depends. If the Knicks are somehow able to land LMA, then Lopez. If not, then obviously Monroe and a stopgap defensive PF with a mid-range shot (See: David West) until Porzingis is ready.

Tough question because Monroe has a higher ceiling but Lopez's high IQ and defense are exactly what we need. Plus Lopez comes at a better price. My plan is no matter which one they will sign I will pretend that is exactly what I wanted to happen.

Best contract of the F/A period so far. If they can sign Monroe at (15.4) and somehow move Calderon, they could have a formidable team in the East.

Grant
Afflalo
Anthony
Monroe
Lopez/Koufos

Still a long way to go though ...

why are knick fans obsessed with moving JC?...lol. He's a quality vet PG and one of the best shooters in the league. you wanna hand over the starting PG to an unknown, unproven ROOKIE? no way...

Knicks can still get Monroe & Lopez and keep JC.

Not really.

And if the Knicks stay true to the triangle (they will) PG is the least important position on the floor. You can sign a vet min PG who plays good D to compete with Grant/Galloway. Calderon is absolutely atrocious on Defense.

He carries a 7.4 million dollar cap hit the next two seasons. Not terrible, but detrimental to the Knicks at this juncture. If that extra money can net you a defensive minded center and backup pg, then you have to explore all avenues.

Not really.

they can... still have $22m in cap space left and S&T's can create another 3-4m.

Monroe 15.4m

Lopez 10m

if JC is healthy he's going to be a very good asset with his shooting. You put him and Affalo in the backcourt and you have two guys that can shoot over 40% from 3.

shooting from the PG is very important in the triangle and Grant is not a good shooter, not to mention you cant just throw a rookie out there.

Nice contract.

It is effectively a 1 year deal. Which means it doesn't fall under the new cap...

It is a great deal and a great fit, but it doesn't really match your argument from the other thread.

Not sure Robin goes for $10M per when broken down Amir Johnson went for $12M per.

wow, great value for a decent 6th man. the last 2 years really cost him a fortune.

So, this is most likely going to be a 1 year deal. Afflalo is going to be able to opt out and cash in on the much higher salary cap. Good move for him. He's a good player, so I give the Knicks credit for that, but the second year player option isn't smart for them. Maybe he'll help lure someone good though.

The player option is smart for Afflalo though. He'll definitely cash in next summer if he has a decent season. But if disaster strikes, it is good insurance for him.

It's more than smart on our part.. Keep flexibility and if he opts out next season the cap will rise and we can still resign him for like 10-13 M. Not a big difference. If he opts in then, it's still solid.

Agree, I don't understand why many wanna move him. With the cap rising next year his # won't hurt us that much. He had a down year just like everyone.

Wouldnt we need to move him for our dream scenario of Lopez-Aldridge?

It sounds like a lot of people here think Afflalo is better than he is.

He's not a good shooter, his D has slipped a lot the last couple years, he's not a good ball handler, passer, rebounder, shot blocker ... he's a serviceable player in the NBA sure, but he's not above average and that is reflected in him signing a 2 year deal for $16M.

He shot 53% on open 3s last year during his worse season as a pro...

Why do people keep saying he has had two consecutive bad years? He had a crappy year last year on a Denver team that was as much a toxic mess as any team in the league before being traded to be a backup on Portland. The year before he put 18ppg and shot 43% from 3.

1st Stat in 2010

Now Affalo in 2015

When NY does a rebuild, watch out. Slow down and save some for the rest of the league.

Comparing a 5 year $100 million contract, to a 2 year $16 million contract?

Well, Steph shot 91% on covered 3s in the corner ... so by some measures 53% when open is weak :)

Afflalo is a pretty good player and he signed an okay contract. I think it's funny that desperate fans are reacting like it's a great deal for a great player :)

Can't compare 1 year deals to multi-year deals. The concept of Amir's deal was we'll overpay you in year 1 so we don't have to offer a year 2 (and thus maintain added flexibility to pursue bigger options next offseason). Lopez will be going for a multi-year deal.
