NY (AP) RJ Barrett has decided to a contract extension with the brand new York Knicks, agent Bill Duffy said Monday night.
ESPN first reported the agreement, saying the four-year deal could possibly be worth around $120 million.
Barrett is entering his fourth season with the Knicks and contains seen his scoring numbers climb in each one of the last 2 yrs. He averaged 14.3 points as a rookie, then 17.6 points in 2020-21 and 20.0 points earlier this season.
And hes done everything as a starter; Barrett has come off the bench in one of his first 198 NBA regular season games.
The 6-foot-6 wing out of Duke was the No. 3 pick in the 2019 draft. He’ll make about $11 million this coming season, the final of his rookie deal, and the extension begins with the 2023-24 season.
