Knicks, Mario Hezonja agree to one-year deal

Knicks eyeing veteran power forward

Knicks eyeing veteran power forward

Adding Hezonja to the rotation is a significant move, but the biggest takeaway of all may be that Fizdale is already making his mark in free agency.

Hezonja averaged 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.1 steals over 22.1 minutes per game in 2017-18.

The Knicks agreed to sign young shooter Mario Hezonja on a one-year, $6.5 million deal, adding another former high draft-pick project into the fold.

After three years of playing for Magic, this 23-year old moved to NY and became a member of the Knicks - Dubrovacki.hr reports.

At the older end of the scale, the 32-year-old Ashley Young said he would be keen to take a penalty if the Colombia game goes to a shootout.

At face value, this looks like nothing more than a depth signing. At 18 years old, he has some developing to do in order to become a consistent contributor at the National Basketball Association level, but his ceiling is awfully high on a team that has one eye on the future.

The Hezonja signing fits that description. They traded for Emmanuel Mudiay in February, acquiring the point guard who went seventh that June.

Last October, a new Magic front office tandem of President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman and GM John Hammond chose not to exercise the team's fourth-year option on Hezonja for the 2018-19 season. It is also continuing the trend of general manager Scott Perry giving high draft picks that haven't met their potential another shot in the National Basketball Association. He's at a 33.2-percent clip in 219 career games. Come his third year, he played 75 games, 30 of which were starts.

Not coincidentally, Knicks GM Scott Perry was the assistant GM in Orlando when the team picked Hezonja.
