Odds Favor Julius Randle To Sign Contract Extension With Knicks

  • The betting odds suggest Julius Randle will sign a contract extension with the New York Knicks this offseason.
  • Randle averaged 24.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game and won Most Improved Player during the past season.

NEW YORKJulius Randle is projected to sign a contract extension this offseason, at least according to the odds. Although Randle had a breakout season and led the team to the playoffs, it’s far from a given that the New York Knicks will offer an extension.

How A Deal Gets Done

Randle’s breakout season should allow him to receive a hefty payday in the future, and the Knicks could be looking to lock up Randle as a key piece to the franchise’s future. The Knicks are projected to have the most cap space of any team, so money won’t be an issue for New York.

Randle was arguably the biggest factor for the team’s success this season and would likely be a tough player to replace which may be why online sportsbooks favor the extension to get done.

Will Julius Randle Sign An Extension This Offseason Odds

  • Yes -150
  • No +110

Why There Would Be No Extension

It’s possible that the Knicks think it was a fluke season from Randle and could decide to wait to offer an extension in hopes that his value drops. Some would argue that Randle’s poor play in the playoffs could cause some disagreements on evaluation as well.

NBA bettors may also want to remember that the Knicks drafted Obi Toppin in last year’s draft, a potential replacement for Randle and could decide to spend their money on other positions if they believe in Toppin as a building block.
