The New York Knicks have been making some serious moves in the NBA offseason, making this the best summer for Knicks fans in a long time. Obviously they haven’t done anything near signing someone like Kevin Durant, but it seems as if the Knicks have finally filled out their entire roster with a playoff worthy team.
Today it was announced by Adrian Wojnarowksi that “Spanish forward Wily Hernangomez has reached agreement with the Knicks on a multi-year deal, league sources tell @TheVertical.”

Willy was drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round of the 2015 NBA draft.
Fans have been hoping the Knicks would bring in Wily this summer, not just because he was Porzingis’ team mate in Spain two years ago, but because Willy has some serious potential for us going down the line. Right now the Knicks need some serviceable big men and Hernangomez could be an instrumental piece in backing up Joakim Noah.
Details on the contract are still coming, but it’s likely that the deal is for more than two years. We’ll update this post as soon as we know the details.
