Plumlee, who turns 25 next Friday, signed with the Knicks last offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Duke. In his rookie season, he played sparingly for New York, averaging 1.9 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 21 contests (8.1 MPG). He had a larger role in 15 G League games for the Westchester Knicks, averaging 12.3 PPG and 9.1 RPG.

Plumlee’s 2017/18 salary was partially guaranteed for $100K, but the rest of his minimum salary wasn’t due to become fully guaranteed until October, according to Basketball Insiders. As such, the Knicks will be off the hook for the remaining $1,212,611.
