Knicks Free Agency 2015: Get to know Arron Afflalo

Hey, check out the new guy. If you've ever spent a day in the life of Arron Afflalo you'd know he's an early riser.

Knicks sign Arron Afflalo to 2-year, $16 million deal

A signing! The Knicks have added long-rumored target shooting guard Arron Afflalo on a short deal: Arron Afflalo will sign a two year deal with the Knicks. His option on the second year. $16 million total. — Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 2, 2015 Quick thoughts: 1. Afflalo played with Carmelo Anthony in Denver, and he's someone Melo reportedly recruited to come join the Knicks. 2. A one-and-one deal is essentially a rental-- if Afflalo plays well, it seems likely he'll opt out to seek more money next year. But if he plays well, the Knicks will be a slightly better team, so...
