Kristaps Porzingis still finds way to contribute to Team LeBron

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Kristaps Porzingis still wants to somehow be part of All-Star Weekend, even if he’s on crutches in New York next Sunday. As hokey as it might sound, Porzingis is sending boxes of his new “Zing Bars” special delivery to Los Angeles to distribute to his Team LeBron teammates. “I won’t be playing this...

Knicks may bring back familiar face to mentor young guards

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — The Knicks have three point guards aged 25-and-under who need grooming, particularly 2017 lottery pick Frank Ntiliikna and 2015 lottery pick Emmanuel Mudiay, who made his Knicks debut versus the Pacers Sunday. As a result, the Knicks are considering bringing aboard former point guard Pablo Prigioni as a developmental coach, according to two...

Emmanuel Mudiay impresses (and Knicks don’t) in strong debut

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — Four points guards weren’t enough to topple the Pacers. Though newcomer Emmanuel Mudiay put up a double-double in his Knicks debut, the club suffered its sixth straight loss in a 121-113 defeat to Indiana at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. In 29 minutes off the bench and without a team practice, Mudiay finished with 14...

Knicks’ Emmanuel Mudiay speaks — and not just in English

NY Post (Marc Berman) — INDIANAPOLIS — You can call them “The French Connection.” Maybe there’s some karma with newly acquired Knicks point guard Emmanuel Mudiay joining French rookie Frank Ntilikina. Mudiay said he, too, is fluent in French, having grown up in the Congo, and they already have been bonding in that language. The trade for Mudiay has raised...

Why Hornacek thinks Ntilikina can handle Mudiay addition

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — You have a young, foreign-born, lottery-pick point guard who has struggled lately as a rookie. So you trade for a young, foreign-born lottery pick point guard who has struggled since entering the league in 2015-16. What does that tell the other guy? Nothing negative, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek hopes. Hornacek does not think the acquisition...

Even Enes Kanter realizes the Knicks’ reality now

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — Center Enes Kanter, perhaps the last guy in New York — beyond the drunk on the corner stool of a bar on W. 33rd Street — may have run up the white flag on the Knicks’ playoff hopes in the wake of Kristaps Porzingis’ injury. “It’s tough. We are in 11th spot right now. I’m...

Best place for LeBron to finish padding his resume is right here

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — There are a thousand reasons why this will never happen, of course. We could list them all here but: a) it’s depressing, and b) the list would probably run over into Mushnick’s page and he charges exorbitant rent. So we can focus on the one reason why it should happen. The one reason why LeBron...

Knicks GM’s plan delivers hope at a desperate time

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It won’t speed up Kristaps Porzingis’ rehab process, but credit Knicks general manager Scott Perry for jumping in to pacify a saddened fan base with a series of well-intended sentiments. It’s part of the job, even if former president Phil Jackson didn’t think it was, and the first-year GM carried it out seamlessly. That’s why...

Knicks rookie finally gets his shot and refuses to waste it

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks’ controversial decision to trade a 23-year-old, All-Rookie first-team center selection for two distant second-round picks became clearer Thursday in Toronto. The 7-foot former Vanderbilt center Luke Kornet, who has spent the season with G-League Westchester, made his NBA debut a historic one at Air Canada Centre. He posted a double-double, adding four blocks...

Knicks GM reveals Emmanuel Mudiay-Frank Ntilikina plan

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks general manager Scott Perry said the addition of young point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is part of their “talent acquisition phase’’ and has no reflection on any disappointment with their struggling rookie lottery point guard Frank Ntilikina. Thursday’s trade with the Nuggets for Mudiay, 21, a former lottery pick himself in 2015, gives the Knicks...

The shot that can take Knicks’ Emmanuel Mudiay to next level

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO – Jared Jeffries, the former Nuggets’ scouting director and ex-Knicks forward, told The Post that Emmanuel Mudiay desperately needed out of Denver before his entire career was shot. Denver had moved on with their 2016 first-rounder, Jamal Murray and Mudiay, 21, was regressing. Jeffries, who helped draft Mudiay with the seventh pick in 2015,...

Knicks teammate lived Kristaps Porzingis’ nightmare scenario

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO – Jarrett Jack isn’t trying to scare Kristaps Porzingis, just warn him. The Knicks veteran point guard said it took him 17 months before he was back and the process “is going to suck.’’ However, there’s a caveat. When Jack tore his ACL in January 2016, he also had meniscus damage. In fact, he...

Frank Ntilikina sounds OK with his new guard competition

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO — Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina reacted with his usual nonchalance about the Knicks trading for another young point guard — Emmanuel Mudiay — at Thursday’s trade deadline. “It’s good — a young player, good for our future,” Ntilikina said before the Knicks’ 113-88 loss to the Raptors at Air Canada Centre. “We both can...

Porzingis-less Knicks pounded by powerhouse Raptors

NY Post (Marc Berman) — TORONTO — This hopeless season carried on for the Knicks without Kristaps Porzingis, but the result was same old, same old in ‘O Canada.’ The Raptors won their fifth straight game over the Knicks on Thursday at Air Canada Centre, routing the depleted club 113-88. Michael Beasley, replacing Porzingis at starting power forward, scored 21...

Why Knicks picked Emmanuel Mudiay over Elfrid Payton

NY Post (Marc Berman) — In the end, the Knicks had a choice of a lottery-pick point guard the franchise passed on in 2015 or a former lottery-pick point guard GM Scott Perry once selected. The Knicks were in the ballgame for both Emmanuel Mudiay and Elfrid Payton, the athletic penetrator with the high-rise hair. The Knicks decided on Mudiay...
