Marshall Plumlee is officially locked in as a member of the New York Knicks for the 2016-17 NBA season.
The 2011 Christ School graduate signed a three-year deal with the Knicks on Thursday. The first year is guaranteed for $565,000, according to multiple reports, including from the New York Post.
Plumlee, who was on the Knicks summer league team in Orlando, told The Post he has been invited to Knicks training camp. Thursday, Plumlee signed a partially guaranteed three-year deal — the first year is fully guaranteed at the league minimum of $565,000 and the final two years are non-guaranteed, according to an NBA source. By extending a three-year offer, the Knicks are forced to dip into their eroding cap space for the money, but ensure his salary won’t skyrocket if he has success. On the flip side, Plumlee is the lone undrafted player to get a full guarantee off summer league.
Plumlee is one of three brothers from Indiana who played basketball for Christ School. Older brothers, Mason and Miles, are currently active in the NBA.
