The new Frank Ntilikina appears in a great sign for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — In Saturday’s summer-league opener versus the Hawks, the new Frank Ntilikina looked much like the Frank Ntilikina of old. A demon on defense. A five-point, three-turnover dud on offense. That changed Sunday versus the Jazz in the Knicks’ 90-85 loss. In the opening two minutes, Ntilikina scored on two driving layups, then...

This isn’t the Frank Ntilikina Knicks were hoping to see

NY Post (Marc Berman) — LAS VEGAS — The Knicks were so worried rookie Mitchell Robinson wasn’t going to drop to No. 36 in the second round that they mulled trading up a few notches to ensure they’d be able to nab him, according to an NBA source.
