The details of New York Knicks rookie Damyean Dotson’s contract has emerged while GM Scott Perry is adding help in the front office.

The New York Knicks announced the signings of Ron Baker and Damyean Dotson on Monday. We already knew the terms of Baker’s deal, two-years and $8.9 million, but on Tuesday we learned what Dotson would be making.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, the rookie guard is guaranteed $1.1 million next season and $1.4 million in 2018-19 in 2018-19 respectively. His $1.6 million salary for 2019-20 is non-guaranteed.

Dotson is expected to be a key part of a Knicks rotation next season on a rebuilding team. With New York going young, they decided to let Justin Holiday walk and have the rookie replace his production.

Just a day after adding Barack Obama’s brother in law, Craig Robinson, to his front office staff new Knicks general manager Scott Perry is working on adding more help.

Ian Begley reports that Perry is talking to former Orlando Magic colleagues Harold Ellis and Michael Arcieri about joining the front office in New York.

Perry is looking for a more successful go around this time with his Orlando guys. It didn’t go well the first time.
