Smith was the NBA’s 6th Man of the Year last season while averaging 18.1 points per game.
As expected, and earlier reported by The Daily News, Smith received the “Average Player Salary Exception” worth just over $24 million.
The Knicks have made resigning Smith a high priority this summer. After trading shooter Steve Novak to the Raptors in a deal that brought in Andrea Bargnani, the Knicks needed to strike a deal with their second biggest scoring threat.
Smith was open to signing with other teams, but because of salary cap restrictions, the Knicks would have the upper hand in signing him.
