The Knicks are not expected to come to an agreement with Kristaps Porzingis on a rookie extension prior to today's 6 pm deadline, so he will be a restricted free agent next summer. ‪Waiting to offer Porzingis an extension until the summer of 2019 gives NYK an additional $10 million in cap space for the coming offseason. They'd still need to shed some salary to have enough money to offer a max contract to a player with at least 7 years of service‬.

Interesting quote in an article in The Athletic from Jeanie Buss on Phil Jackson's Knicks presidency: "He should've made sure (to control) who was surrounding him, because the people close to you will take the knife and put it in your back." Obviously, if you made a list of reasons why Jackson's Knicks presidency was a failure, "internal politics at MSG" wouldn't be at the top of it. But to dismiss it as a factor is naive.
