The New York Knicks have agreed to a partially guaranteed three-year contract with undrafted free agent Marshall Plumlee.
The New York Knicks invited Marshall Plumlee to participate in NBA Summer League after he went undrafted during the 2016 NBA draft. There was little hype surrounding Plumlee so most expected him to merely receive an opportunity.
According to Al Iannazzone of Newsday, the Knicks will sign Plumlee to a multi-year deal with a fully guaranteed first season.

Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops expanded, saying it will be a three-year deal.

Whether he’s in the NBA or the D-league, Plumlee will be part of the Knicks organization in 2016-17. The Knicks have a lot of big bodies in their rotation right now so it’s likely that Plumlee will begin the season in the D-league. He turns 24 on July 14, though, so too much time in Westchester doesn’t make sense.
