Baker rewarded New York with plucky defense, the rare Knick to exert reliable effort on that end.
Where does the 24-year-old go from here? Back to New York.
Breaking the news himself, Baker didn’t provide any contract details.
He was a restricted free agent with a $1,512,611 qualifying offer. I doubt he rushed to accept that before the Knicks could pull it, but it presented a guaranteed NBA salary at $200,000 more than his minimum. I can’t rule out that course.
