NY Daily News: Report: Knicks interested in Clippers guard Jamal Crawford

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Frank Isola of the NY Daily News reports: The Knicks have expressed interest in acquiring Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, according to a source. Coincidentally, the Cavs are also pursuing a deal for Crawford, the 34-year-old former Sixth Man of the Year. Miami is another team that is also interested in Crawford.

Knicks Release Schedule, We Predict Future Events

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The New York Knicks have released their schedule for the 2016 season. Using our crystal ball, slide ruler, and a children’s joke book, we’ve predicted a few future events. We’re pretty confident all of these will occur. 10/27: Porzingis shows up early, as Derek Fisher tells the rookie he’ll be starting on opening day. Porzingis spends hours pre-game working on various...

How Do Really Bad Teams Fare The Year After?

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — With the New York Knicks coming off a dismal 17 win season, it’s hard to predict where the team will land by the end of 2016. I’ve seen estimates from the mid-20s to low 40s. So I’ve decided to look at similar team seasons to the Knicks, or teams in the modern era that have won between 14 and 19 games (in a full season) to help predict where New York will land. In the season...

Knicks Sign Kevin Seraphin; Comparison To Derrick Williams

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — According to multiple sources, the New York Knicks have signed F/C Kevin Seraphin to a one year deal worth approximately $2.8M. Seraphin’s per minute stats show him to be a good offensive rebounder (2.9 oreb/36) and mildly voluminous scorer (15.2 pts/36). Although his career ts% is poor (51.2%), 3 of his 5 seasons were over 53%, including the last two. The bulk of his shots seem to be...

Knicks Have Until Saturday To Decide On Ledo (And Mid-September For Galloway)

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Although most of the excitement of the NBA offseason is over, the Knicks still have a few decisions to make. One such determination is coming up quickly. Ricky Ledo will make $100k guaranteed if he’s not waived by 8/1, which is this Saturday. If he makes the opening day roster, $200k of his contract is guaranteed. The shooting guard hasn’t been particularly productive on the...

Why the New York Knicks Made a Mistake not Keeping Maurice Ndour

Knicker Blogger (bgibberman) — I’ve been quite vocal about the New York Knicks decision to not keep undrafted rookie Maurice Ndour in the fold. According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, Ndour received a three-year contract from the Dallas Mavericks, year one fully guaranteed, second year partial and third year not guaranteed. President of basketball operations Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills decided it was too...

Knicks Summer League Stats: The Good, The Not-So-Bad, And The Ugly

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — The Good: I’m going to talk about Porzingis briefly. Clearly he was the best player on the team, and has given the Knicks their first exciting prospect since Gallo. He had 18.4 pts/36 on 59.1% ts%, with only 2.2 to/36, toss in 3.1 blk/36. Yes the rebounding is a concern, but everything else is there. The next guy up on the stat line is Maurice Ndour. He caught my eye early on with his...

Vice: Bobby on Bargs

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Great stuff from Robert (once a Knickerblogger always a KnickerBlogger) Silverman on the Nets new problem. Sift through the pile of Vines and GIFs above, and you will detect a unifying theme, which is that Bargnani is both lost and bored. He doesn’t seem particularly interested in defense or rebounding or passing or any other basketball thing save launching the occasional flat-as-hell...

Scouting Porzingis: Summer League Game 2

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Since yesterday’s game was late, I’m just posting my notes: Again Porzingis is playing center, guarding Tarik Black, who is listed as a center on the Lakers roster. Also they asked L.J. at halftime, and he said center. So put it in the books. Porzingis ran down the court on a turnover. Got there pretty quickly. Nice touch on a turnaround jump hook from 5. Porzingis draws a foul on...

Scouting Porzingis: Summer League Game 1

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Kristaps Porzingis played his first NBA game Saturday for the Knicks’ summer league team. The first thing that jumped out at me about Porzingis is his size. He’s listed as 7-3 in sneakers, and he’s clearly head & shoulders above the other players. He had 2 blocks and I’m not even sure he jumped to get them. His immense stature is almost unworldly, slightly...

Advanced Scouting: Ovidijus Galdikas

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Looking through the Knicks’ summer league roster, there seems to be a fair amount of familiar names. Cleanthony Early, Langston Galloway, Ricky Ledo, and Travis Wear all played for New York last year. Meanwhile Thanasis Antetokounmpo played for the Westchester Knicks. Finally, Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant were drafted this year, and we’ve gone through their potential...

Knicks 2015 Free Agency Round Table: Kyle O’Quinn

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — O’Quinn’s per minute stats are pretty good: 13.0 pts/36, 10.5 reb/36, 2.1 blk/36, 2.6 ast/36, 53.6 ts%. How does this make sense after signing Derrick Williams, who has awful numbers? Cronin: I think this goes back to what I said during the Derrick Williams discussion – no one move should define a front office. The Derrick Williams’ signing was a poor one, but this seems like an example...

Knicks 2015 Free Agency Round Table: Arron Afflalo

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — True or False: Afflalo is the Knicks second option on offense in 2016. Fisher-Cohen: True. And that’s gonna bump his stats and guarantee he leaves next summer. That’s the problem with player options. Kurylo: False. He’s going to be their first option for the 42 games Carmelo Anthony misses, because Coach “Gotta Win’em All” is going to ride that ol’ grey mare until it breaks. Gibberman: False....
