Hart will sign for his max extension: 4 years, $81M


ESPN story on Knicks G Josh Hart finalizing a four-year, $81 million contract extension

Josh Hart is finalizing a four-year, $81 million contract extension with the New York Knicks, his agents Aaron Mintz, Dave Spahn and Steven Heumann of CAA Sports told ESPN on Wednesday.
The sides are working through the final details Wednesday, and once fully complete, Hart will continue his participation with Team USA on its way to the FIBA World Cup.
Hart's deal -- which he will become eligible to sign Thursday -- will deliver him a total of $94 million through the 2027-28 season. The $81 million is the maximum that Hart can sign for and is 140% off his $12.96M contract in 2023-24. He will receive $18.1 million in the 2024-25 season.
Once Hart picked up his $12.9 million player option for the 2023-2024 season in June, the Knicks were able to use their full midlevel exception in free agency -- which landed them Hart's ex-Villanova teammate Donte DiVincenzo on a new four-year deal.

The Villanova Knicks have arrived.
3 Years/$76.3M — Jalen Brunson (option)
4 Years/$50M — Donte DiVincenzo
5 Years/$94M — Josh Hart


And I thought this offseason belong to Quickley & Toppin receiving a $$$ extension for their 3 season Knicks performance. Dum me !!!
