by NESN Staff

September 22, 2009

No other NBA teams dipped into the Nate Robinson or David Lee pools this offseason, so the pair of restricted free agents are reportedly going to sign with the Knicks soon, according to

The report indicates that the pair will each sign one-year agreements — Lee for anywhere between $6 and 7 million and Robinson to his $2.9 qualifying offer sheet.

Lee's qualifying offer was $2.6 million but no other teams would make offers, perhaps knowing very well that the Knicks would quickly match.

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Lee averaged 16 points and 11.7 rebounds in 81 games for the Knicks last season, his fourth with the franchise. Robinson, a 5-foot-9 guard, averaged 17.2 points and 4.1 assists in 74 games for the Knicks last year.
