Knicks center Mitchell Robinson was eligible for a four-year, $55,560,960 contract extension during the season.
He did well not to sign it.

Robinson should remain New York’s starting center. The 24-year-old is a big presence inside – protecting the rim, finishing at the basket and crashing the glass. Importantly, he has earned the trust of Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau as defensive anchor.
But Robinson – ironic given all the instability in his career (a strange saga at Western Kentucky, numerous agent changes in the pros) – is the trusted, dependable option at center.
