Knicks May Try To Re-Sign Marshall Plumlee

The Knicks may be interested in bringing back center Marshall Plumlee, posts Ian Begley on ESPN Now.

Several teams have contacted Plumlee, according to Begley, who doesn’t identify any of the others. New York waived Plumlee last month to help create enough cap room to sign former Hawks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr.

Plumlee is expected to choose his next team soon, Begley adds. At the time he was waived, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he would like the chance to re-sign the 7-footer, who Begley notes “impressed coaches with his development and work ethic” during his time with the organization.

Undrafted out of Duke in 2016, Plumlee signed with the Knicks in July of that year. He played most of last season with New York’s Westchester G League affiliate, but also appeared in 21 games with the Knicks, averaging 1.9 points and 2.4 rebounds in about 8 minutes per night.

    Plumlee has raw talent. I wouldn’t mind if the Knicks brought him back and kept developing him. He could do like last year and spend time in the G League, in order to get him more time on the court. Hope he chooses to return.

    I hope they bring him back I think that with good coaching he might become a good backup center

    Watched him with Westchester Knicks,
    There has to be better players than him.
    Mediocre at best,

    Bring him back. He works hard and plays with an edge. Plus he sprinted to MSG to make tipoff last season. Would like to see him as the spark off the bench again.

    He was a rookie last year. He didn’t spend an entire season in the d league
