Not a huge surprise here, but big man Marshall Plumlee will play for the Knicks in Summer League, per sources. Plumlee was signed as an undrafted free agent last season and many in the organization are high on him due in part to his potential, his energy and his professional approach. So it's not surprising that the club would like to continue to develop him. If Plumlee is under contract o. June 30, as expected, $100,000 of his deal for next season kicks in. His full contract becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster in late October.
