The State of the Knicks Salary Cap for the 2016 Free Agent Season

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I did one of these last week but then the Knicks traded everyone, so now let’s take a new look at the Knicks’ cap situation heading into free agency at midnight, July 1st. Enjoy! Teams are technically not allowed to sign deals until July 7th, but can negotiate and basically agree to deals starting July 1st (teams are allowed to agree in principle with their own free agents before...

Knicks by a Rose from the Grave

Knicker Blogger (Erik Judd) — So here we are. The Knicks have just made a trade that has been brutally lambasted by nearly every knowledgeable Knicks fan I’ve spoken with, based on a lot of relevant statistical information I see no reason to repeat here. I want to talk about this in terms of practicality and overall scope as an effort in team-building, or perhaps even better, team-trashing. At the end of last season,...

The Knickerblogger Podcast: Examining the Derrick Rose Trade with Kevin McElroy

Knicker Blogger (bgibberman) — Hey KnickerFriends. Given yesterday’s earth-rattling trade, in joint project with Hardwood Paroxysm, Kevin McElroy and I sat down (well, Skyped, but you catch my drift) to take a look at the newest Knick, Derrick Rose. Enjoy!

Knicks Acquire Derrick Rose; A Trade Only An Accountant Could Love

Knicker Blogger (Mike Kurylo) — Last night on Twitter I was reminded that newly acquired Derrick Rose was a former MVP (I had no idea!), a three time All Star (that many!), and better than any Knick guard from 2016 (you don’t say!). I was accused of being a hater (not me!), and making controversy just so I could write for Bleacher Report (that’ll show those high school bullies!). Yet when I turn to the numbers,...

ESPN.com: Knicks Trade for Derrick Rose

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — I know it’s been a while, but I guess we should have an official thread for this garbage trade. From Marc Stein and Ian Begley (the trade was broken by Shams Charania): The Knicks acquired Derrick Rose from the Bulls on Wednesday, hoping the former NBA MVP can be their answer at point guard. New York traded center Robin Lopez, guard Jose Calderon and guard Jerian Grant to Chicago, which...

The Initial State of the Knicks Salary Cap In Anticipation of the 2016 Free Agent Season

Knicker Blogger (Brian Cronin) — Last year, I did a “State of the Knicks’ Salary Cap” piece right before the the NBA free agency period began, but people have been asking for it earlier and earlier, so what the hell, now that we know that Arron Afflalo and Derrick Williams are both opting out of their contracts, we pretty much know where the Knicks’ cap room will stand heading into free agency, so...

Afflalo and Williams to opt out: $30+ million in cap space looms

Knicker Blogger (mikeplugh) — Knicks' Arron Afflalo and Derrick Williams decline options; club could have $30 million in cap space. More here: https://t.co/35cVw67a4W — Ian Begley (@IanBegley) June 21, 2016 This is big news for the Knicks. Afflalo was the source of great frustration for Knicks fans this year, and it’s not at all surprising to see him opt out. He’ll get a raise and a new start....

Knicks Notes: Thoughts from the Outside of the Playoffs

Knicker Blogger (mikeplugh) — A lot of energy converged around the Knicks coaching situation after the season mercifully came to a close. Phil Jackson set the news cycle up with a typically cryptic style of communication, when he was communicating at all. It strikes me that a generation ago, there would have been little controversy about the way Jackson conducted his early offseason, between his travels and his choices in...

Get Your Official Andrea Bargnani Draft Hat Today!!

Knicker Blogger (mikeplugh) — Like many of you, I’ve purchased an item or two from the Knicks online store. I have Porzingis t-shirts for the whole family. Making purchases like that puts you on the Knicks e-mail list, which is completely acceptable to me. I dislike being on e-mail lists, but for the Knicks I’ll make an exception. This morning, in my inbox, a head shaker of an e-mail promotion arrived. Take a...

Did the Thunder Chokety Choke Choke, or Nah?

Knicker Blogger (DCrockett17) — Welp. That Western Conference Final was difficult to characterize. To use a well-worn boxing analogy, it was a contest between knockout specialists, and an incredibly entertaining one. Both landed shots and took them. Both wobbled. Both recovered. I cannot recall a series where my “feel” for a given game at a given moment was so inconsistent with the score. Both teams had...

What does hiring Jeff Hornacek mean for the Knicks?

Knicker Blogger (bgibberman) — Stunned. That was my reaction when I saw this tweet from Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck: Breaking: Knicks will hire Jeff Hornacek as head coach, per NBA source. — Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) May 18, 2016 Until about a week ago I was convinced Knicks president Phil Jackson was going to remove the interim tag and keep Kurt Rambis on a full time basis. The other choices seemed to be David...
