His agent, David Falk, told the News that all four teams that met with Monroe in free agency — including the Knicks, Lakers and Blazers — were offering max deals for any number of years desired. In the end, Falk said, the decision was centered on Milwaukee’s position as an emerging contender in the Eastern Conference.

A couple of sources refuted that in this article:

http://uproxx.com/dimemag/greg-monroe-max-contract-milwaukee-bucks-2015-nba-free-agency/

Conflicting news after earlier reports said the Knicks and not offered Monroe the max. Former New York Times beat reporter Howard Beck says the Knicks, as well as the Blazers and Lakers, ALL offered Monroe a max deal, but he chose Milwaukee because they’re more playoff ready than the other three.

Perhaps you’re wondering why the Knicks lost out on Monroe, after many predicted they were the front-runners for the lefty forward with the deft touch around the rim. Even though New York reached an agreement with Arron Afflalo, USA Today scribe Jeff Zillgitt reports the Knicks did not offer him the max.

In the end he was not known to be good rebounder but perhaps his salary would have “Boxed out” the future signing if Noah!!!
Well, the daily news reported this directly from the guy's agent and named him in the article. Unless Falk is lying (which is entirely possible, he is an agent/lawyer) I don't know how you get a more direct source than that.

There were articles that refuted that after the fact. Im not here to play judge and jury. You like "Catcha", and I responded. Agents are hired to create markets. There are lots of reasons to take meetings and its possible there were multiple meetings and Phil might have had a price in mind but the market would determine that. Milwaukee might have said "Here is the offer, we are looking at a few scenarios and this offer is good for "X" around of time. If a short window, that might have sealed it.
If you don't like Phil you want to indict him on things that didn't happen? If that makes you feel better, have at it.
All we got is what happened. He took KP at the 4. That don't make him smart but Buss and Hinkie look stupid. If he drafted Cauley-Stein then signed Monroe that makes sense.
He signed RoPez. It is what it is.

Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

The New York Knicks are outscoring opponents by 0.1 points per 100 possessions this season. That’s the 16th-best net rating in the league.

They’ve outscored opponents by 15.6 points per 100 possessions in the 165 minutes Kristaps Porzingis and Frank Ntilikina have shared the floor.

Really good article on Frank that I missed when it was on the home page. Sorry no Greg Monroe references.
