The Knicks continue to gather frontcout help, this time from Washington. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that New York and Bobby Portis have come to terms on a two-year, $31 million offer sheet. Because he is a restricted free agent, Portis coulud remain with the Wizards if they decide to match the Knicks' offer. Fred Katz of The Athletic, however, reports that Washington has no plans to do so.
