Breaking News: New York Knicks announce the signing excellent $30 million deal of key player from….

The New York Knicks had hoped to secure OG Anunoby with a contract of around $30 million per season. However, given his elite defensive capabilities and outstanding performance this past season, his salary expectations are likely to soar beyond $35 million.

Anunoby, at 26 years old, is in the prime of his career and poised to settle into a long-term home. He split the last season between the Toronto Raptors and the Knicks, playing 27 games with the former and 23 games with the latter. Throughout the season, he averaged 14.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.1 assists, with shooting stats of 48.9% from the field and 38.2% from three-point range.

His scoring potential is often underrated, but it’s his defensive prowess that truly stands out. During the playoffs, Anunoby’s ability to neutralize top scorers becomes crucial for the Knicks.

Securing Anunoby to a long-term deal would necessitate some tough financial decisions for the Knicks. Strategies such as offloading Mitchell Robinson’s salary and potentially cutting Bojan Bogdanovic are being considered to maintain the core roster while using the draft to bolster team depth.
