Walker signed a four-year, $141 million contract with the Boston Celtics in 2019. He earned his fourth All-Star appearance in the 2019-20 season but injuries limited him to 43 games in 2020-21.
The Celtics traded Walker to the Thunder this offseason for a package built around Al Horford.
Walker was set to earn $36.0 million in 2021-22 and had a $37.7 million player option in his contract for 2022-23.
Born and raised in the Bronx, signing with the Knicks will be a homecoming for Walker. He will team up with RJ Barrett and Julius Randle in New York, in addition to Derrick Rose and Evan Fournier, both of whom have reportedly agreed to deals with the franchise in free agency.
Walker has career averages of 19.9 points, 5.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds on .419/.360/.840 shooting splits.
