Report: Knicks, Randle agree to extension

The New York Knicks continued their busy offseason on Thursday by making sure their resident All-Star stays put. Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks and Randle have agreed to a four-year, $117 million extension.

Last season was a banner one for Randle on several fronts. He was a first-time All-Star, averaged career highs in points (24.1), rebounds (10.2), assists (6.0) while shooting 45.6% overall and a career-best 41.1% on 3-pointers. He was named the Kia Most Improved Player and helped the Knicks to their first playoff berth since 2011-12.

The extension for Randle comes a day after reports surfaced that the Knicks are expected to sign former All-Star guard Kemba Walker once he clears waivers. Aside from that, the Knicks also re-signed several of their own key free agents in Derrick Rose, Nerlens Noel, Taj Gibson, Reggie Bullock and Alec Burks.
