Yahoo! – Sources: Troy Williams agrees to two-year deal with Knicks

Anyhow, from Shams: The New York Knicks and forward Troy Williams have agreed to a two-year contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Williams’ deal will be guaranteed for the remainder of this season and includes partial...

NY Daily News: Time is running out for Joakim Noah to reach buyout agreement with Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Stefan Bondy: Joakim Noah has until midnight Thursday or else he’s stuck with the Knicks. That’s the deadline for the exiled center to reach a buyout if he wants to sign elsewhere and be eligible for the playoffs. However, as late as Wednesday afternoon, there had been no progress in negotiations. The Knicks still didn’t want to release Noah without significant money coming back in a...

NY Post: Why Knicks luring Doc Rivers to New York is a possibility

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — From Marc Berman: It would be an easier sell for Clippers coach Doc Rivers if Kristaps Porzingis didn’t tear his ACL three weeks ago to complicate the Knicks’ rebuilding program. But according to a former Rivers associate, it’s not far-fetched for the one-time Knicks guard to have interest in the team’s coaching job if Jeff Hornacek, who has one year left on his contract, is let go after the...

2018 NBA All-Star Saturday Night

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I figure we might as well have an open thread if anyone is going to be watching The Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Competition tonight. With KP injured, the Knicks won’t have anyone involved in any of the competitions tonight, but honestly, it’s been a long time since we ever expected to see Knicks in these things, right? Even back in the day, John Starks...

HoopsHype: No team is shooting or making fewer three-pointers than the Knicks

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Good article by Bryan Kalbrosky. Only the Golden State Warriors have a better catch-and-shoot field goal percentage this season. New York is shooting 38.7 percent from downtown when taking catch-and-shoot three-pointers, which ranks Top 5 in the East. But they rank last in the East (16.6) for attempts per game. They have not found a true spot-up shooter on their roster, as they have run this...

Knicks Improvement Due to Defense

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — This year the Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis has been greeted by his adoring fans with chants of “MVP!” It’s not entirely without merit as Porzingis is second in the league’s most important MVP category — points per game. Realistically there’s little chance he’ll be among the top 5 this year, as LeBron James, James Harden, Stephen Curry, Giannis...

Knicks 108 Pacers 101: KIDS INCORPORATED!

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Porzingis with 40 points and 6 blocks. Frank Ntilikina playing the fourth quarter, hitting two treys, and poking the ball away from the Pacers at will. WOW! If this is a glimpse at the future, I need a DeLorean. On second thought, I’m fine with the journey at normal speed.

Knicks 84 Thunder 105 – Some Thoughts

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Well it’s hard to believe the Knicks were competitive in this game, but for a half they were right in it. Ironically as a team, they didn’t start off that well. Kanter seemed to forget that “pivot foot” is a thing in basketball. NBA Superstar Michael Beasley sprained his ankle 36 seconds into his initial court appearance, right before he could drop 40 points on...

Official Knicks 2017-18 Wins Prediction Thread

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Okay, folks, come make your picks as to how many wins that the New York Knicks will win this season. For me, logically, they should be sub-30 win bad, but because the Knicks always find a way to mess with things, I’m going to go with 31 wins, just good enough to not get the top picks in the 2018 Draft. What say you all?

Thoughts On the Melo Era

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Now that the Knicks have finally found a suitor for Anthony, the book is closed on the ‘Melo era in New York. The Knicks acquired Carmelo in the middle of the 2011 season, and the forward spent 6 1/3 seasons with the team. Initially after Carmelo’s addition, the team had reached a level of success that eluded them in the decade prior. New York made the playoffs in 3 straight...

From ESPN… The New York Knicks have agreed to trade 10-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told ESPN on Saturday.

Is it Worth it for the Knicks to Spend a Draft Pick for Masai Ujiri?

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — There’s been a buzz on the internet about the Knicks acquiring the Toronto Raptors VP Masai Ujiri for their front office vacancy. Poaching an executive from another team isn’t illegal in sports, as there usually requires some kind of compensation for the deed. In May the Raptors acquired a second round pick from Orlando, because the Magic hired Jeff Weltman to be their president....

Knicks 2017 Summer League Roster Breakdown

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — With the Knicks summer league right around the corner, I thought I’d look at some of the lesser known prospects and give my opinion on them. Jamel Artis SF, 6-7, 23 Artis is an empty scorer. Other than scoring and a moderate amount of rebounding (6.7 reb/40), he adds literally nothing else. With 0.7 stl/40 and 0.5 blk/40 he will get roasted on defense. On offense he can hit from downtown...
