we need to do what Houston does--- 3-4 year contract with only the first yr guaranteed. We couldve signe dburke for 3 years with only 40 games guaranteed. If you think the player is good enough to play for the Knicks--just give him the 3-4 yr non guaranteed contract--so if he blows up you have him under contract for cheap/

Agreed when possible. There’s no way a guy like Burke would have agreed to that. It’s safe to say the Knicks tried to get as many non guaranteed years as possible.

Houston doesnt do this.

Knicks did sign Burke to a non-guaranteed for next year, so Knicks control. Easy to look up and it's been announced in other places repeatedly. Even here.

I can't think of 1 out-of GLeague contract that runs 3-4 years. No need to make stuff up BRIGGS.

Yea I can't see any agent advising his client to sign for 3-4yrs with non-guaranteed money. They could get cut any time while also end up stuck in a situation that doesn't benefit them.
