Knicks Pick Up Frank Ntilikina's 3rd-Year Option

October 15, 2018 - 1:20 pm


The Knicks announced Monday that the team has exercised its third-year option on guard Frank Ntilikina.

The first-round pick in 2017 from France didn't do much in his rookie season, averaging just 5.9 PPG, 3.2 APG and 2.3 RPG over 78 games. He started in just nine games. 

The 6'6" 200-pound guard put on some muscle this offseason as he looks to improve in his sophomore campaign. The 20-year-old was the youngest player to appear in a game last season in franchise history.
