All-Star Julius Randle, New York Knicks to Talk Extension this Offseason

The New York Knicks are back and Julius Randle has been a big part of the resurgence.

Some recognition is most certainly due.

According to numerous sources, both sides are interested in discussing a contract extension this coming offseason. Randle’s base salary this season is $18.9 million, but he is due to receive an additional $2 million in bonuses. As per Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the Knicks can add up to four years to Randle’s contract.

If the Knicks are to guarantee Randle’s $19.8 million for next season, they will be able to add $106 million in guaranteed money for four years. With numerous incentives on top of that, Randle’s contract can balloon to as much as $140 million over five years. Another route Randle could choose to take is to wait until next offseason in order to sign a five-year max worth up to $201.5 million or a four-year max for $149.4 million.

Either way you slice it, the former Los Angeles Lakers first round pick will be a very rich man.

The 26-year old Randle made his first All-Star team this season and is currently averaging 24.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 5.9 assists per game, while shooting a career best 42-percent from long range. Randle is also top-10 in the league in VORP (3.6) as per Basketball Reference.

The New York Knicks are currently sitting in the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and look poised to make a return to the NBA playoffs.
