Mario Hezonja said that his status as an upcoming free agent doesn’t affect his mindset with the New York Knicks.
The Knicks feature many players who will become free agents this summer. With the team out of playoffs contention, coach David Fizdale believes this might have an effect on their way of playing.
Hezonja mentioned that he fully trusts his abilities and keeps the focus of his game turned on helping the team first.
Per The New York Post:
“I don’t give a s–t that I’m a free agent,’’ Hezonja told The Post. “I’m trying to help these guys as well. I don’t give a s–t about myself. I’ll be fine. Trust me. I’ll be fine. With my basketball skill, talent and abilities, I’ll always be fine. I just want to help these guys with stuff I’ve been through in my career in both Europe and here.
“I know it’s a very sensitive situation here with a lot of free agents and a lot of young guys I’m trying to help. If I see something in practice, I try to correct them. We have to continue to show togetherness and finish on a good note. A lot of teams don’t achieve playoffs they just give up.”
