Knicks Sign Big Man To 3-Year Deal

The New York Knicks have committed to last year's second-round pick for the long haul, signing center/power forward Jericho Sims to a three-year deal.

Previously on a two-way, Sims now has a standard NBA contract, according to NBA Insider Shams Charania.

Sims was drafted by the Knicks in the 2nd round (58th pick) of the 2021 Draft. He averaged 2.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in just 13.5 minutes per game, in 41 contests. 

He'll earn about $6M over the three years of the deal. 

The Knicks hold an option for the 3rd year, and only half the contract is guaranteed. 

Transferring Sims from a two-way to a standard also opened up a two-way contract for this year's second-round pick for the Knicks, Trevor Keels
