Baskonia guard Luca Vildoza has agreed in principle to a four-year, $13.6 million deal with the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Argentinian will fly to New York once he clears the immigration process.
There is no timetable for his arrival for the Knicks this season due to immigration, physicals and the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
Only the first year of Vildoza’s contract will be guaranteed.
Three non-guaranteed years on the contract give the Knicks the chance to evaluate Vildoza in the Olympics, summer league and training camp before committing to a full guarantee on next season, notes Wojnarowski.
The 6-foot-3 25-year-old negotiated a buyout with Baskonia before agreeing to the deal with the Knicks.
In 31 EuroLeague games this season, Vildoza averaged 10.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game in 25.2 minutes per game.
The Knicks had an open roster spot and kept Vildoza on their radar since April.
