The Knicks need a big — not another point guard — but made official the training-camp contracts for PGs Toure’ Murry and Chris Smith J.R. Smith’s brother.
Murry is a 6-5 point guard who excelled at the Las Vegas Summer League after which Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said he expected him at training camp. But the need for a point guard ended when they signed veteran Beno Udrih.
The Knicks like his size and defense but the foot surgery to 6-10 Jeremy Tyler that will likely have him out all of preseason and for the Oct. 30 season opener has the Knicks needing another big off the bench for their 15th man. They have 14 guaranteed contracts including Tyler’s.
One possibility is cutting Murry and Smith after training camp and hope they join the Knicks-run D-League team in Erie to develop them and keep within the system no strings attached. Murry could sign with any team however during the course of the season.
Murry helped lead Rio Grande Valley to the D-League title – the Rockets affiliate...

J.R. Smith‘s heart was in the right place. His choice of words was just unfortunate. Smith, who has had an eventful offseason, tried to honor the victims of 9/11 by posting a photo of a sculpture commemorating the attacks. His sentiment was nice, if the wording was a little off. “Celebrate the deaths of the people in 9/11! #WELOVEYOU #WEWILLNEVERFORGET,” Smith wrote on Instagram...
The New York Knicks announced on Wednesday afternoon that they have signed former Louisville guard Chris Smith.
After graduating from Louisville in 2012, Smith went undrafted, but later joined the Knicks as a free agent, shortly after his older brother, J.R., resigned with the franchise. The only thing guaranteed for Smith in his contract was an invite to the training camp.
Don’t worry, you’re not missing something here. Chris Smith might be, though.
Smith, younger brother of Knicks guard J.R. Smith and a pretty good player himself at Louisville, celebrated J.R.’s birthday on Monday by getting a tattoo of his big bro on his back, then posting a photo of his new ink on Instagram. The tat has a caption, of course, which reads, “Always...
It’s no secret that former Louisville guard Chris Smith is very close with his older brother, NBA star J.R. Smith. J.R. reportedly paid for Chris’ tuition during his two years at Louisville while he was a walk-on. J.R., the 2013 NBA 6th Man of the Year, has done everything possible to help his younger brother land a full-time gig in the NBA.

Tweet While many Americans are mourning the tragedy that hit the USA — and the New York area specifically — on 9/11/01, Knicks guard J.R. Smith took to Instagram to offer a tribute of sorts. Except, he used an awful choice of words to express his sentiment. See below: Somehow, we don’t think the […]
I am the type of person, if I know what you meant, even if you have a typo or use it in the wrong context, I won’t make a big deal about it.
I know what JR Smith was trying to say. He meant to say celebrate the memories of those who died during 9/11. His heart was in the right place, he brain is just somewhere else at times.
Cut him a little slack, he isn’t the sharpest knife...
Never change, J.R. Never change.

Jason Terry, one of the newest members of the Brooklyn Nets, is never shy about voicing his opinion. When JR Smith guaranteed a championship earlier this month, Terry couldn’t help but to respond. Terry agreed with Smith’s assessment, sort of; he thinks the Knicks can win a championship, just not in the NBA.
This is what Terry told Dime Magazine, courtesy...

The New York Knicks announced on Friday that they signed two new players: Toure’ Murry and Chris Smith.
You may already know Smith because he’s J.R. Smith’s younger brother. But if you’re like me then you’re wondering who in the heck Toure’ Murry is (isn’t “Toure’’’ a flavor of gelato?).
Bleacher Report breaks down Murry’s and Smith’s profiles:
