Tyson Chandler for Derrick Williams, Luke Ridnour and the 26th pick:
At first glance this trade seems uneven on the negative end for the Minnesota Timberwolves. They are giving up two rotational players and a first rounder, but if you take a closer glance you can see that this makes sense on both ends for both organizations.
Knicks Point of View: New York is giving up their anchor as well as their heart and soul on the defensive end of the court. However, with Tyson’s poor playoff performance and the Knicks desperate need for players at many positions, coupled with their need for a low post scorer, New York must make this trade.
Acquiring Derrick Williams is a gamble. Without a clear position (PF/SF) Derrick has been a grave disappointment in his young NBA career, Although he had a positive year last year, he is still not producing the way a 2nd overall pick should. He has the skills to play down in the paint, but for some reason avoids contact. He is at best 6’8” in shoes, which is...

Jerome Jordan will play on New York's summer league team, but he wants a permanent role on the Knicks next season.
"I'm ready to play," Jordan said. "It was a tough year with the team [in 2011-12]. There was a lot of pressure. I'm just trying to be physically and mentally ready to play on both ends of the floor.

Tyson Chandler was not surprised that Jason Kidd retired recently to eventually become head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, but he does think the former New York Knicks guard could have played more seasons in the NBA.
"I tried to [convince him]," Chandler said. "I did. I thought he had a couple of more years in him. I gave my input. I tried to tell him he could still...
Happy Father's Day, everyone!Though we're two people with very realistic expectations for the Knicks, about a month and a half ago, my father and I were marveling at the fact that around Father's Day this year, the Knicks could still be playing basketball...potentially competing in a heated NBA Finals matchup. Perhaps we'd be watching.Of course, such a feat is one...

Patrick Ewing was never one to be laid back or patient as a player for the New York Knicks, but his search for a head coaching job has forced him to be just that. At this point, Knicks fans have to be just as disappointed as he is.
While guys like Mark Jackson and Jason Kidd continue to snatch up jobs without any prior experience, Ewing has been forced to fend for his own. The common...
Coming into the 2013 season, part of which he played with the New York Knickerbockers, Kenyon Martin earned roughly $110,784,447.00 in his 12-year NBA career. With the money he didn’t spend on tattoos, he purchased a 15,000 square foot colony in Dalworthington Gardens, Texas. And now, it’s for sale again.
It sits on 8.4 acres

No one exactly knows why the Knicks gave an injury prone 39-year-old center a three year deal, but Camby is planning to collect every penny. I am not mad at him.
Camby’s agent Richard Kaplan told ESPNNewYork.com on Thursday that the 17-year-veteran is committed to returning next season to be the backup center.“The game plan is still the same,” Kaplan said. “There’s no...

Will Bynum, the pint size PG from the Detroit Pistons is has drawn some interest from the New York Knicks. With his small stature but competitive heart, Will has made a lasting impression on opponents. He is in the same mold as Nate Robinson, without the smooth shooting stroke, but he has the strength and tempo to be a very serviceable back up point for many teams, especially the...

Carmelo Anthony visited his wife LaLa on the set of Think Like A Man 2 today, then stopped to take this picture with comedian Kevin Hart. Not gonna lie, Hart looks dapper. Maybe Melo shoulda stepped up and gone with the headband to spice things up. Just sayin. Thanks to our friend MenudoBol for the post.-TO

Patrick Ewing could only watch as Jason Kidd gained a head coaching position only nine days removed from retiring from the NBA while Ewing, another former NBA great— after a decade of bouncing around the league in various coaching and broadcast positions after calling it a career— was the bridesmaid once again.
Ewing was named this week as an associate coach with the Charlotte...
