NBA Rumors: Robinson, Knicks, Fox, Richardson, Pacers

Knicks center Mitchell Robinson boxes out against the Pistons.

Knicks president Leon Rose is open to a contract extension for Mitchell Robinson “as long as it’s not crazy,” according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

The Celtics recently agreed to a four-year, $54 million extension with Robert Williams, but the Knicks aren’t expected to go that high, as league insiders believe his current value is more in the four-year, $44 million range.

Whatever people think his market value currently is, Robinson has bigger goals to reach, as he tweeted: “Man let me lock in bro I definitely can either get DPOY or at least be in the conversation #personalgoal.”

  • De’Aaron Fox is “content in Sacramento,” as we recently passed along. Fox has been linked to the Sixers in a potential deal for Ben Simmons, as the Kings are currently loaded at both guard positions with Fox, Buddy Hield, Tyrese Haliburton, and Davion Mitchell. It’s worth noting that Fox also signed a five-year, $163 million extension in the 2020 offseason.

  • Josh Richardson has signed a one-year extension with the Celtics that will now pay him $24 million over the next two seasons, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Richardson first opted into his $11.6 million deal prior to being traded from Dallas to Boston.

  • The Pacers are looking to keep a roster spot open heading into the season, according to J. Michael of IndyStar. Keifer Sykes could be a favorite to land a two-way spot on their roster due to his strong Summer League play.
