NY Post (Marc Berman) — Off two games with the Knicks, sharpshooter John Jenkins is on the verge of signing a two-year contract for the league minimum, according to a source.

The Kevin Durant pal who could be a factor in any Knicks deal

NY Post (Marc Berman) — One theory is Kevin Durant needs another star companion such as Kyrie Irving to make the leap to New York — which is why Knicks brass was so eager to create the extra cap space with the Kristaps Porzingis trade. Knicks president Steve Mills may also want to save a couple of bucks for Durant’s...

Knicks can target cheaper free-agent All-Star to pair with Durant

NY Post (Marc Berman) — As the Knicks attempt to best use their $74 million in cap space, they could do worse than unsung Bucks swingman and free-agent-to-be Khris Middleton, who is coming off a breakout All-Star Game on Sunday in Charlotte.

Knicks’ All-Star break report card: Weight on future means no failures

NY Post (Marc Berman) — If I could give one grade to the Knicks, it would be a “T” for Tank. It’s been a season of auditions with no regard for the win-loss record. As the All-Star break concludes Wednesday with the Knicks’ return to practice, David Fizdale’s 11-47 tank machine will have to go 6-18 in its final 24...

Phone call, testy answer: LeBron-Kyrie Lakers team-up signs are there

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — If the Lakers fail to land LeBron James’ preferred choice of hybrid big man Anthony Davis via a summer trade, could the Lake Show make a play at free-agent-to-be Kyrie Irving if he’s leaving Boston?

What if D’Angelo Russell had fallen to the Knicks?

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It’s crazy how the paths have turned out with D’Angelo Russell and Kristaps Porzingis. You can now make the argument that in 2015, the Knicks could have been better off if the Lakers had passed on Russell for Jahlil Okafor, the 76ers snatched Porzingis and the Ohio State southpaw point guard had...

Adam Silver: Tanking has ‘corrosive’ effect on NBA teams

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In case David Fizdale didn’t hear it the first time, commissioner Adam Silver pounded home again the notion tanking will not make a team stronger in the long run.

Kevin Durant: Kristaps Porzingis trade ‘has nothing to do with me’

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Kevin Durant says he’s happy for Kristaps Porzingis and new Knick DeAndre Jordan, but gave no indication on how the blockbuster could change his future.

Rodions Kurucs on how his play style differs from Kristaps Porzingis

NY Post (Marc Berman) — CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Nets rookie forward Rodions Kurucs was to have dinner with Kristaps Porzingis later this season. Then his fellow Latvian got traded.
