Knicks’ forgotten rookie steals show — before Mitchell Robinson scare

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The best rookie on the floor wasn’t Kevin Knox or Mitchell Robinson or even the Nets’ first-rounder, Dzanan Musak, who didn’t see the floor. It became undrafted Allonzo Trier, the 6-5 Arizona shooting guard who lit up Brooklyn for 20 first-half points in 16 minutes and made major headway in eventually landing a regular roster...

Mario Hezonja ‘pissed off’ after debut, but not at Knicks coach

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Mario Hezonja was ticked at himself — not coach David Fizdale for not starting him in Monday’s preseason opener. The Croatian combo forward wears his emotions on his sleeve.

All three Knicks rookies make impressive opening splashes

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks went 3-for-3 in Washington D.C. during their preseason opener.

Knicks want free agent addition to get ‘more greedy’ on offense

NY Post (Greg Joyce) — They are the words any player loves to hear: shoot more.

Scrimmage shows Knicks rookies going in opposite directions

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Kevin Knox looked right on schedule.
