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 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.

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...
