David Lee, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, could reportedly ask for $10 million annually.
The Knicks will be in a tough spot, having to decide what to do with both Lee and Nate Robinson, who will also be a restricted free agent.
"A player can be a good player at one number and not a good player at another number," team president Donnie Walsh said.
Roderick Boone wrote in a piece for Newsday that "there's whispers that Lee might try to command $10 million."
RealGM Note: Lee is currently ranked 11th in season FIC and has a Reina Value of +911%, which means he 'deserves' a salary of approximately $18M.
