NBA Rumors: Knicks To Give Impending Free Agent Center Multi-Year Deal

There's been a lot of head-scratching amongst New York Knicks fans and observers as to why there's been an apparent hesitancy on the part of New York to lock up its impending free agent Mitchell Robinson. They have until the end of the month before he becomes an unrestricted free agent. 

But NBA Insider Marc Stein says he has been "delivered the strongest rumbles I’ve heard to date that a new multiyear deal to keep Mitchell Robinson in New York is looming."

Meanwhile, Knicks Insider Ian Begley seems to agree. 

"My read on Robinson and the Knicks at the moment," writes Begley, "is that the club would feel comfortable matching an offer that’s in the neighborhood of the mid-level exception (projected at $44.5 million over four years)."

And while it sounds like Robinson is likely to be staying a Knick, Stein says the team is looking for takers for many other players, like Alec Burks, Kemba Walker and Nerlens Noel, as they look to clear cap space to make a run at Jalen Brunson.
