Bobby Portis will be unique and made like Knick.
The free agent striker has agreed a deal with the Bucks, his agency confirmed on Twitter, two days after the Knicks refused his team option to open cap space. Portis ’new contract will be a two-year deal, Athletic said, with a player option for the second year.
Portis, 25, played 66 games for the Knicks last season, averaging 10.1 points and 5.1 rebounds as he left the bench.
Last summer, the Knicks signed Portis for a two-year, $ 31 million contract, the second year that was a $ 15 million team option that the Knicks didn’t take. They thought they were interested in being able to get him back at a lower price, but instead, Portis went to Milwaukee to win a championship with the Bucks.
The Knicks also saw Moe Harkless agree to sign a one-year, $ 3.6 million deal with Heat on Saturday.
