New York Knicks: Posting and Toasting Blog Articles

Kristaps Porzingis will not play in EuroBasket, but Willy Hernangomez will

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — On one hand, it's fun to watch Knicks play in international competition. On the other hand, it's nerve-racking to see a Knick risk injury wearing another uniform, especially when he's 19 and kinda frail and hopefully the future of the franchise. On that note: Kristaps Porzingis will not play Eurobasket for Latvia — Latvian ball (@LatviaBasket) July 6, 2015 Bummer, but understandable...

Kyle O'Quinn should blossom with the Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — O'Quinn's 4-year, $16 million is my favorite Knicks signing yet. Kyle O'Quinn hasn't produced much yet in the NBA. In irregular minutes as a Magicman, he showed the basic dexterity and willingness to do most things, but never quite embraced a role. Over the next 3-4 years in New York, O'Quinn will hopefully earn more stable work, and find an effective niche for himself in the process. ...

Knicks acquire Kyle O'Quinn at 4 years, $16 million

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Another strong defensive big man lands in New York. Wait...we're allowed to have more than one? Even with Robin Lopez in the fold, the New York Knicks still needed to add a little bit of size and defensive gumption. With that in mind, Phil Jackson went out and made a deal for Orlando Magic big man Kyle O'Quinn: Sources: Free agent Kyle O’Quinn has agreed to a four-year, $16M deal...

NBA Free Agency 2015: The Knicks can afford to take a few small chances

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — In Robin Lopez, New York secured a building block of an eventual good team*. By signing Arron Afflalo, they made a low-risk, mutually beneficial commitment they could eventually keep, replace, or trade, perhaps with equal ease. In failing to, say, sign Marc Gasol, or add a maximum-contract big man AND a top-tier wing, the Knicks confirmed that New York is not Mecca, Phil Jackson is not a...

Knicks to sign Derrick Williams for 2 years, $10 million

Posting and Toasting (MMiranda) — Williams, the no. 2 pick in 2011, will be joining his third team in five seasons. Chris Broussard reports the Knicks and Derrick Williams have agreed to a two-year deal for $10 million. The second year is a player option. This signing leaves New York somewhere around $3 million under the cap. I'm no capologist, but I know there are still bi-level/mid-level/apron permutations available for...

Why Robin Lopez fits the Knicks

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — We can first talk about what Robin Lopez doesn't do, if you want. Are you nodding? I can't actually see you. Okay, well, Robin Lopez isn't his brother, basically. He's also not LaMarcus Aldridge or Greg Monroe -- he won't create much for himself or others. You don't throw the ball to Robin Lopez and expect him to dance his way to a smooth bucket or attract help and whip a pass to the weak...

Woj: Knicks will sign Robin Lopez to a 4-year, $54 million deal

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — Here it is, as expected: The Knicks are finalizing a four-year, $54 million agreement with free agent center Robin Lopez, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 3, 2015 That's a touch higher than expected, but still around what big men of Robin Lopez's caliber (and below, honestly) are getting paid this week. Here's what a 4-54 deal looks like....

2015 NBA Free Agency: Knicks meeting with Corey Brewer, Derrick Williams

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Two athletic forwards who can't shoot. NBA free agency is kinda, sorta winding down, which means teams are now turning their attention to players who don't exactly move the needle. Speaking of which... Sources: Knicks meeting with Corey Brewer and Derrick Williams today in LA. NYK has about $8 mill left to spend.... — Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 3, 2015 OK then! Corey...

2015 NBA Free Agency: Robin Lopez wants to join the Knicks, waiting on DeAndre Jordan

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — 1. ESPN sources say Robin Lopez has chosen Knicks over Lakers and will join NYK as long as DeAndre Jordan, as expected, chooses Clips or Mavs — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 3, 2015 Yahoo Source: After Clippers meeting, DeAndre Jordan remains "truly 50-50" and "torn" on choice between Mavs and Clippers. Decision looms. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 3, 2015 2. ...

The Knicks have had their Thursday free agent meetings, and now must move on

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The Knicks have a new wing, Arron Afflalo. After a couple meetings and one canceled meeting, the Knicks do not yet have a new big man. Greg Monroe signed with the Bucks, where I think he'll fit better than he'd have fit with the Knicks. David Falk says that right there is  the reason his client signed in Milwaukee .  Adrian Wojnarowski seems to have deleted the part of his report ...

Knicks Free Agency 2015: Get to know Arron Afflalo

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — Hey, check out the new guy. If you've ever spent  a day in the life of Arron Afflalo you'd know he's an early riser. So it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that his deal came together first thing this morning. With a few more meetings to go in Los Angeles, it could prove to be quite an interesting day. It wouldn't be too shocking if most players and front office types want to figure...

2015 NBA Free Agency: Greg Monroe is signing with the Bucks

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — The big man, linked to New York for months, is headed to Milwaukee. Remember that  "done deal" everyone was reporting back in April? It turns out the deal did get done, but the doers didn't end up doing the doing. You dig what I'm saying? No? Former Pistons big man -- and now-former Knicks target -- Greg Monroe has signed a max deal with the Milwaukee Bucks , per Adrian...

His option on the second year. $16 million total. — Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 2, 2015 Quick thoughts: 1. Afflalo played with Carmelo Anthony in Denver, and he's someone Melo reportedly recruited to come join the...

Knicks Free Agency Rumors: The next 24 hours or so of meetings

Posting and Toasting (Seth) — The league around the Knicks is churning. The Knicks are sitting. Maybe they're waiting, maybe they're flailing. It's hard to tell. Whatever the case may be, plenty of very good free agents remain unsigned, and some of them might become available more cheaply as rosters fill. It sounds like the Knicks spent the morning flying to Los Angeles after meeting Greg Monroe in D.C. I've seen 4...
