The Knicks and free agent shooting guard Reggie Bullock are “re-working” the two-year, $21MM contract (second-year non-guaranteed) that they agreed upon last week, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).
According to Wojnarowski, both sides are motivated to reach an agreement on a deal with new terms. However, agent David Bauman and the Knicks are re-evaluating Bullock’s fitness to play a full season in 2019/20.
Bullock was one of six veterans the Knicks agreed to sign in the early stages of free agency, but the team only officially completed deals with five of them on Monday, as we relayed late last night. Bullock was the exception, and now we have a better idea of why — while details are scarce so far, it sounds as if there was an issue with his physical.
If their agreement with Bullock falls through entirely, the Knicks’ cap room projection would increase to $14.8MM, tweets ESPN’s Bobby Marks. However, it sounds like there’s optimism that something will get done.
Appearing in 63 total games for the Pistons and Lakers last season, Bullock recorded 12.1 PPG with a .377 3PT% in 63 total games.
