The New York Knicks made another sound move in signing an overseas talent Luca Vildoza. It’s a new day. Although the deal hasn’t seen ink to pen, the contract has positive implications for the Knicks’ future.
The 4-year, $13.6 proposed deal isn’t fully guaranteed; three years come as unguaranteed, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. New York found unexpected success this season. Addressing the team’s depth chart during the offseason marks the next step in making the Knicks a formidable franchise.

Following in Argentine predecessor’s footsteps such as Pablo Prigioni and recently, Facundo Campazzo. Now Vildoza comes to the states to earn his rep in the NBA. New York’s scouting department had their finger on the pulse. Before Vildoza laces up for the NBA, Euroleague’s Baskonia and the point guard reached a buyout.
Although Vildoza won’t appear in a Knicks uniform this season, Knicks fans may rest easy knowing the point guard exhibited success at the highest level for the respected Spanish league. Last year, Vildoza achieved both MVP and championship status in his time with Baskonia.
