Turn On The Knicks:
Chris DiGioia kicks off our look at New York Knicks Draft Prospects by breaking down North Texas forward Tony Mitchell.
The New York Knicks are going to have plenty on their plate come draft day, and having possession of the 24th overall pick, a wide range of intriguing prospects could be available. North Texas combo forward Tony Mitchell could easily find himself in a Knicks uniform next season. The 6-8 forward is known to be extremely athletic, and his ability to get up and down the court can bode well for an up-tempo team like the Knicks. Mitchell provides some unique qualities offensively and defensively, showing he has three-point range in college, coupled with a natural talent in shot-blocking. It is always a huge plus for any player to be capable of guarding multiple positions, and with a defensive-minded head coach like Mike Woodson, he can be used in an array defensive schemes.
Although Mitchell has shown to play the game passionately on both sides of the court, he’s stil...

Unless you’re a serious observer of international basketball, you didn’t know who Pablo Prigioni was when the Knicks signed him on July 23, 2012. I was one of those, and our first look at him was during the Olympics. While Olympic hoops is a different game than the NBA, you could see right away that Prigioni was a pro, and to be overly simple, knew what he was doing out there...

After an exit out of the playoffs that was far too early for any Knick fans expectations, everyone has one thing to look forward to: Iman Shumpert.
Despite not playing a full season due to a league-wide lockout and an ACL tear, Shumpert has developed his game and IS ready to take the next step. Iman proved that in the playoffs, as he was the only Knick to play consistently...
The post Knicks Draft Look In: Lorenzo Brown appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.
Are you ready for your latest new couple alert? One of my theories is that every athlete that’s able wants to add a celebrity chick to his roster. It’s sort of like a “mama I made it moment” or at the very least, more love and adoration from the homies back home and the professional friends. :giggle: Add another jock to the pile, New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has been...
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been showing you some of the more miserable draft nights in New York Knicks history. In case you missed them, here’s the list that leaves much to be desired.
Nene Hilario (the Antonio McDyess trade)
If you thought things couldn’t get any worse, you are sorely mistaken. This Throwback Thursday, we’re taking you...
Though they only own the 24th overall selection in this month's NBA Draft, Glen Grunwald and the Knicks know anything they can happen.Trades often go down just seconds before a pick, and though a team may not have multiple draft choices, moves can always be made to snag another pick in order to reel in that second or third player that caught an executive's eye during workouts...

A source confirms Jason Kidd will be the new coach of the Nets.
— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) June 13, 2013
Jason Kidd did not stay away from the NBA for long. Kidd, 40, recently retired but will return to the league as the new head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
Kidd played for the Nets from 2001-2008 and reportedly blew the team away when interviewed for...
With Jason Kidd becoming the Brooklyn Nets' new head coach, Raymond Felton admits he will need to take an elevated leadership role on the New York Knicks, as well as increased pressure to make smart decisions.
“I guess that means I have to step up my game a little but more, be a little bit more of a leader,” Felton said. “It’s just a little more pressure on me I guess...
Well, JP, Mikhail Prokhorov was not Kidd-ing about hiring Jason Kidd as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets (still feels weird to me). His hiring will be announced at a press conference this afternoon. This will, I guess somewhat obviously, be the recently retired Kidd’s first coaching job. There is a natural inclination to think that a PG is sort of a natural to become a head...
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
