By coming to terms on a Two-Way contract, Kornet’s salary will be based upon some games he plays in the NBA for the Knicks and their D-League affiliate (Westchester Knicks).
In his last two years at Vanderbilt, Kornet showcased an ability to be a shot-blocking presence.
Averaging a combined 2.5 blocks per game in his junior and senior year, Kornet came into his own as a defensive force. Kornet though has also shown off his ability to hit from long-range.
In their first two summer league affairs, Kornet shot 44.4% from beyond the arc for the Knicks.
Playing time though will be difficult to garner for the four-year big man.
