The Knicks are left with several decisions to make today. At today’s 3 PM deadline, New York will decide which veteran players will get their salaries fully guaranteed. Bullock is the first domino to fall. The remaining options are Taj Gibson, Wayne Ellington, and Elfrid Payton.
Head coach Tom Thibodeau likes Reggie Bullock’s defense and three-point shooting.
To start, Bullock missed the start of the 2019-20 season due to a back injury. He made his debut with the Knicks on January 1, scoring 11 points in a 117-93 win against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Last season, Reggie Bullock averaged 8.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. He didn’t have his greatest three-point shooting season, shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arch. Also, Bullock shot 40.2 percent from the field.
With the option being picked up, Bullock is an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
Could this spell trouble for Damyean Dotson? With Reggie Bullock coming back and the team drafting Immanuel Quickley, the roster already has two 3-and-D players. The Knicks could always have one more. But, no one is sure if the front office is invested in Dotson’s future in New York.
