Kevin Knox won’t be a Knicks starter in surprising reveal

NY Post (Post Sports Desk) — In the point-guard battle, there were multiple winners. And Kevin Knox was a loser in a fight he wasn’t expected to be a part of. In a surprising move, the Knicks’ starting lineup for Wednesday’s season opener, against the Hawks, will not feature Knox, David Fizdale announced Tuesday. The darling of the summer league and...

David Fizdale has set a lofty goal for Frank Ntilikina

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Even if Frank Ntilikina doesn’t start the first game of his second season, the 20-year-old remains a big part of the Knicks’ plans. While waiting for coach David Fizdale to determine his starting point guard for Wednesday’s season opener against the Hawks, Ntilikina’s third-year option was exercised by the Knicks on Monday. The young guard...

Knicks season preview: What they’re really playing for

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The flowery offseason rhetoric is over and now the games — and probable losses — begin for the 2018-19 Knicks. Player development is the priority over the won-loss record that won’t be aided by Kristaps Porzingis’ uncertain return from an ACL tear. A plan is in place that should include another high lottery pick in...

Knicks make Porzingis decision official with 2019 splashes in mind

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — As expected, the Knicks announced they exercised their third-year option on guard Frank Ntilikina, while the team will pass on extending Kristaps Porzingis’ rookie contract before Monday’s 6 p.m. deadline. Porzingis will now become a restricted free agent after this season. The Knicks can match any offer made to their franchise forward, and waiting to...

Courtney Lee knows he may not get to witness Knicks’ end game

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — It would be different if Kristaps Porzingis were healthy. It would be different if the Knicks front office took after its predecessors and considered a shortcut to the postseason. But now there is prudence. There is patience. There is a new coach and a young core, pegged by oddsmakers to win the third-fewest games (over/under:...

Jeanie Buss: Phil Jackson set himself up to fail with Knicks

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Phil Jackson made plenty of mistakes in three years as Knicks president. He gave $72 million to Joakim Noah, who provided 53 games of service to the Knicks before finally being waived this weekend. He hired Derek Fisher as head coach, and inserted Kurt Rambis as the interim coach less than two years later. He...

Knicks forward explains slow start: Don’t want to be ‘a–hole’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Mario Hezonja is playing for his next contract, but first, he’s playing for his new teammates. Hezonja has avoided any temptation to try to put up numbers. In fact, by design, Hezonja took his first preseason with the Knicks slowly, trying to feel out new teammates and not force anything. When the Knicks open their...

Frank Ntilikina’s growth forcing Knicks into difficult decision

NY Post (Marc Berman) — A host of negative issues surfaced that took the buzz off the final week of the Knicks’ preseason: Rookie Kevin Knox’s mysterious funk. Fellow rookie Mitchell Robinson’s rawness, which will lead him to some G-League action. The flummoxing point-guard dilemma facing coach David Fizdale. Tim Hardaway Jr.’s wrist sprain, suffered in Friday’s preseason finale. All...

Knicks mercifully end their Joakim Noah limbo with release

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks officially released center Joakim Noah on Saturday and officially rid themselves of their worst signing in franchise history in a stretch provision. Sources indicated the delay was trying to get Noah to give up more money in a buyout since he can sign with another team for the veteran’s minimum. It’s been reported...

Knicks dragging out rookie’s roster promotion

NY Post (Marc Berman) — David Fizdale said undrafted rookie guard Allonzo Trier’s two-way contract will not be ripped up until, at the earliest, after his 45 days of service is completed on the Knicks roster. Trier still can play, but technically will not be on the 15-man roster when it is set Monday. Trier had a scintillating training camp,...

Knicks end preseason with a dud and no answers at point guard

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks finished their preseason Friday with a Garden loss to the Nets, a 3-2 record and no official answer on who will be the starting point guard on opening night. However, things cleared up a bit as Emmanuel Mudiay didn’t get in until 8:12 left in the 113-107 loss — an indicator he may...

Nets guard: Why wouldn’t we be better than the Knicks?

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — After Spencer Dinwiddie had already stirred the pot with his assertion that he should’ve won last year’s Most Improved Player award, the Brooklyn guard continued to stoke the fires of a milquetoast Nets-Knicks rivalry in need of a little heat going into Friday’s preseason meeting at the Garden. During the same interview on the YES...

Knicks call on Chris Bosh for help with talented rookie

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — More important than the 30 minutes Kevin Knox played against the Wizards on Monday night might have been the 35-40 minutes he spent with Chris Bosh. The 11-time All-Star, who played under Knicks coach David Fizdale when he was an assistant with the Heat, sat down with Knox for a conversation about how to handle...

Smart offseason proves Knicks are rebuilding the right way

NY Post (Justin Terranova) — The Knicks aren’t back. There is no talk of making the playoffs or of a big name acquired in the offseason. The possibility of trading for Jimmy Butler at the expense of future assets was met with a shrug more than excitement. It has been replaced by the acceptance of the early stages of a...

Knicks are ready to give Frank Ntilikina a major defensive test

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — David Fizdale was not kidding around about the Knicks playing position-less basketball. Coming Friday night to the Garden: Frank Ntilikina versus a power forward. “You might see that next game,” Fizdale said Thursday after practice, ahead of the preseason finale against the Nets. “In fact I guarantee it, how about that?” Ntilikina won’t be starting...
