New York Knicks have used their cap flexibility to bring back Derrick Rose on a three-year contract worth up to $43M. They have also agreed with former Celtics’ scoring guard Evan Fournier to a four-year, $78M deal.

Both free agency deals were first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Rose was a huge part of the overachieving Knicks this past season, helping the team return to the playoffs.

In 35 games with the Knicks last season, Rose shot 48.7 percent from the field, 41.1 percent from three, 88.3 percent from the line, and averaged 14.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game.

Fournier finished the regular season with averages of 17.1 points and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 41.3 percent from the three-point range across 42 games with Orlando and Boston.

The Knicks also retained Nerlens Noel and Alec Burks, with both veteran players signing multi-year deals with the NY franchise.
