Kornet, Hicks Receive Qualifying Offers From Knicks

The Knicks have extended qualifying offers to both Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks, according to RealGM’s Transactions log. Those moves make them restricted free agents next month.

That duo signed one-year, two-way contracts last season. According to the latest CBA, the qualifying offer is a two-way contract, with $50K guaranteed.

At least one of them would have to eventually sign a regular contract for next season, since the club has reached an agreement with Arizona guard Allonzo Trier for one of their two-way deals.

Kornet, a 7’1” power forward/center out of Vanderbilt, appeared in 20 games with the Knicks last season. He averaged 6.7 PPG, 3.2 RPG and 1.3 APG in 16.4 MPG. Hicks, a 6’9” forward from North Carolina, saw action in 18 NBA games and posted averages of 4.4 PPG and 2.3 RPG in 13.3 MPG.

    I actually don’t mind either as end of bench guys next year, though if either get more than a minimum offer from another team in RFA, let them walk. We don’t need another Ron Baker deal.

      Remember Mills agreed to that Brown deal. Brown should have stayed in G league. Mills has done as much harm to Knicks that Jackson has done.

  2. I can see Kornet having a roll in NY, I remember his first game, he was pretty impressive, then seems to lack continuity or consistency, but that is ok for a rookie, I think he can do a job for the Knicks, specially as he can stretch the floor.
