• Lance Thomas: re-signed on a four-year, $27 million contract
  • Sasha Vujacic: re-signed on a one-year, $1.4 million contract

Two different situations here.

Thomas was one of the most valuable players on the team, emerging as a 3-and-D threat.

He was 41.0% on catch and shoot 3-point attempts and lowered opponent’s field goal percentage by -3.1% while guarding the shooter (via NBA.com).

Grade: A

Sasha is back because he’s a Phil Jackson guy. He knows the triangle and got along well with Porzingis.

It’s not likely that Sasha will see any real time unless Lee is injured. That doesn’t mean the Knicks couldn’t have explored the free agency pool for a better option, though.

Grade: D
