REPORT: The Knicks have been in contact with free agent guard Dion Waiters

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Sources sometimes lie; buckets never do. The Knicks have been shut out at acquiring free agent point guards thus far, so they might be heading in a different direction. According to several news outlets, they have contacted Miami Heat swingman Dion Waiters. Marc Berman makes the salient point that current GM Steve Mills pursued Waiters when he was in charge of the organization in 2013-14,...

SummerThunder 99, SummerKnicks 87: Vince Carter understands defense better than the coaches

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Keep chucking them threes, boys! If you watch enough Knicks games, you start to pick up on patterns, particularly on the defensive side of the ball: bad pick-and-roll coverage, five players collapsing into the paint while 2-3 quality shooters wait uncovered around the three-point line. The 2017 Summer League squad isn’t exactly flush with regular-season Knicks outside of Chasson Randle and...

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — Kornet is an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt. First ( non-Ron ) free agent signing of the summer, baby! This afternoon, the Knicks announced that they signed Luke Kornet, who is currently playing for the SummerKnicks (Literally! He just made a shot as I typed this!), to a two-way contract. July 3, 2017 – New York Knickerbockers announced today that the team has signed undrafted...

REPORT: Carmelo Anthony would waive his no-trade clause for Cavaliers, Rockets

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — A deal will still be hella difficult, though. Phil Jackson may be gone, but that doesn’t necessarily mean his arch-nemesis, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, will stay in New York. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski—yep, still feels weird to type that—is reporting that Melo would waive his ever-controversial no-trade clause for at least two teams, the Cavaliers and Rockets. Cleveland has long been a...

The Knicks didn't extend offer to Justin Holiday, who signed with the Bulls

Posting and Toasting (New York Basketball Observer) — I’m displeased. At around 10:30pm EST, I checked into the heartbreak hotel. I’m writing this by candlelight, engrossed in my own personal vigil. Some music lightly plays in the background. If you’ve been paying close attention to some of my writings, you’ve caught on by now that I am a huge fan of Justin Holiday. It’s nothing personal, I really liked him as part of the Derrick Rose...

SummerPistons 103, SummerKnicks 78: Somehow, we still get a point for that mess

Posting and Toasting (Alex Wolfe) — Disgusting and combusting Well, that was... let’s just be nice and say “not great.” The SummerKnicks clearly have the same problems as the regular Knicks with SEGABABAs, as our little diaper dandies came out looking flatter than a crepe being run over by a steamroller driven by Eddy Curry. There’s not much to celebrate here—our dudes were down by as much as 35 at one point, and our leading...

Jeff Hornacek thinks Kristaps Porzingis is ready to take over Knicks’ offense

Posting and Toasting (Harrison Rahajason) — We are not displeased with this news.

Carmelo Anthony’s 2016-17 Season in Review

Posting and Toasting (Harrison Rahajason) — For better or for worse, he made headlines. So Melo’s future in New York is muddy. It’s so damn muddy. He’s got a year left—two years, if he decides to pick up his 2018 player option—on the deal he signed in the summer of 2014, but could be playing for another team as early as this upcoming season. Though, the steep buyout may keep him in New York for one more season before he joins the...

SummerMavs 80, SummerKnicks 75: Luke Kornet sure can sling that 3-ball

Posting and Toasting (Jonathan Schulman) — They won two of the quarters, which counts! Hey we got some basketball to watch! Cool junk, friends! Let’s rejoice in this humidity as one. The gym was impossibly noisy and the low angle on the camera made it a little tougher to catch up with the action but it certainly looked like basketball. In the end the Knicks lost but kept it close after a really rough start. Good things Louis...

Frank Ntilikina will not play in Saturday’s Summer League opener

Posting and Toasting (Joe Flynn) — Rest up, youngblood. Fans of the New York Knicks will have to wait a bit longer to watch the team’s first-round pick, Frank Ntilikina, play his first game in the orange and blue. The young Frenchman has been ruled out of Saturday’s Orlando Summer League opener with a bruised knee. Frankie Ntillmatic suffered the injury last weekend when he banged knees with an opponent in his final game for...

What does the Knicks’ salary cap situation look like heading into free agency?

Posting and Toasting (MattRW) — They don’t have much cap room this summer. It’s hard to believe considering the craziness of the past few days, but free agency begins tonight at midnight. Therefore, as we do every year, let’s take a look at the Knicks’ current salary cap landscape. Below, I’ve detailed how much salary cap room the Knicks have, as well as how much I ultimately expect them to have, for each of the next...

The Knicks waived Maurice Ndour

Posting and Toasting (chiniqua) — Who dat dere too hot fi dem Knicks? In addition to being an addiction that brings us heartache, anger, and occasional joy, the New York Knickerbockers are also a business. This means there’s an ugly place where 'people' morph into 'players' and then into 'pieces.' And then they are traded and bought out and waived and then they are gone and it is sad. Today everyone's favorite Ewok...

Who should the Knicks target in free agency?

Posting and Toasting (New York Basketball Observer) — The art of seduction: Madison Square Garden edition. First and foremost, the dominoes yet to fall are so abundant and critical that the entire earth can shift momentum with one signing or trade. For instance, as I was preparing this article and formulating ways to poach Jonathon Simmons or other Spurs players from the fallout of an eventual Chris Paul-to-San Antonio signing, news breaks that...
