    Default Affalo & Williams both opt out

    Arron Afflalo and Derrick Williams have both told the Knicks they will not opt in to their contracts for the 2016-17 season, according to Ian Begley of ESPN NY.

    Afflalo was set to receive $8 million dollars this upcoming season from the Knicks, but will now be an unrestricted free agent.

    Williams would have received $4.6 million dollars from the Knicks this season, but also will now be an unrestricted free agent.

    The Knicks will now have more $30 million dollars in cap space this offseason.

    Mike Scotto of Sheridan Hoops was the first to report Afflalo's opt out.

    Yes! The offseason couldn't have begun on a more happier note!

    No surprise to me. I think the Knicks will attempt to bring back DWill but AA I think is gone, PJ got what he wanted by signing them to short deals and that is a chance to reload this off-season with that 30M in cap space.

    I'd like Williams back. Energetic, athletic, and young.

    WHAT! Afflalo opt out of a $8M contract? ur bull $hittin! ain't no NBA team going to give Afflalo half that amount for a 2 yr contract .. I wonder if we paid $$$ Afflalo to opt out?
    I wouldn't mind having D.Williams back but D.Williams career as a PF is to inconsistent, we would have more success playing D.Will n Melo at the SF spot.
    I hope this guy Hornacek isn't another High School small-ball coach keeping the league weak .. If the NBA played small-ball in the mid 80's and 90's Barkley would have had 3 championship rings
