Knicks take a flier on Celtics’ G-League star

NY Post (Brian Lewis) — The Knicks added 6-foot-3, 200-pound guard Kadeem Allen on Wednesday.

The two stars Enes Kanter thinks can wind up on Knicks

NY Post (Post Staff Report) — Enes Kanter is dreaming big — which, for the Knicks, means dreaming long range.

Asked by Fox Sports 1’s...

Walt Frazier endorses a troubling and tempting Knicks tank

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Walt Frazier said the Knicks should become part of one of the NBA’s biggest problems.

Knicks summer leaguer may have played way to roster spot

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks’ decision to waive small forward Troy Williams on Monday has provided undrafted Arizona guard Allonzo Trier a puncher’s chance at making the 15-man roster following his solid — if overlooked — summer-league performance.

Suddenly the Knicks’ Kevin Knox pick looks even better

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Knicks fans should be thrilled the organization’s higher-ups didn’t listen to them. On draft night, they were chanting for the Knicks to draft Michael Porter Jr., who was at one point considered the top prospect in his class before dealing with health concerns over his bad back. Instead, the Knicks took Kentucky wing Kevin Knox...

Why Kevin Knox’s Las Vegas breakout didn’t surprise his dad

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Kevin Knox planned to attend the ESPYs in Los Angeles on Wednesday, but a star was born in Las Vegas last week.

The team most likely to end New York’s longest trophy drought

NY Post (Mike Vaccaro) — May 5 passed without ceremony a few months back, passed without pause, and that was probably for the best.

Why Knicks are a quiet winner of Kawhi Leonard trade

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Spurs’ decision to ship Kawhi Leonard to Canada stands as good news for the Knicks. While the Knicks were on the outside looking in on Leonard trade talks with San Antonio — even if they tried, they couldn’t match the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan package — their chances of landing a top-notch free agent in...

Knicks dump last year’s surprise Troy Williams

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — OK, the Knicks are ready to start the season. At least numerically.
