Prior to the start of NBA free agency, the Knicks elected to part ways with a handful of players on last year's team.
They declined to extend qualifying offers to Emmanuel Mudiay and Luke Kornet while Noah Vonleh entered free agency. All three of those players signed with new teams on Tuesday.
Mudiay signed a one-year deal with the Utah Jazz, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Vonleh agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, per The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski while Kornet signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Bulls, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
Mudiay, 23, averaged a career-high 14.8 points per game last season, including 3.9 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game in his first full year with the Knicks after being acquired via trade at the deadline in 2018.
Vonleh, whom the Knicks signed last July to a one-year deal, was a pleasant surprise, averaging career-highs of 8.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.
Kornet, a 23-year-old seven-footer, split time between the Knicks and their G-League affiliate, but in 18 games with the NBA squad, Kornet averaged 17 minutes and seven points per game, shooting 36.3 percent from three-point range.
