Is Kyle O'Quinn in for a breakout season?

The Knicks may have hit the jackpot when they signed Kyle O'Quinn this offseason.Sure, the former Magic isn't going to be an All-Star. He's not even going to be a star. But he can be pretty darn helpful, and he's certainly someone who can outperform a four-year, $16 million contract. Over at Posting & Toasting, Jonathan Schulman thinks O'Quinn could start and become a prominent...

Kyle Lowry has slimmed down considerably, which was shocking to J.J. Redick

Kyle Lowry had perhaps his best professional season last year, making the All-Star team for the first time while averaging 17.8 points and 6.8 assists per contest.Because of all of that, it would be silly to criticize Lowry's physique. But he hasn't exactly been known as one of the more ripped players in the league, though the way he's been working out this summer may begin to change...

Phil Jackson didn't want to spend all that money on Marc Gasol

The Knicks have had quite the fiscally responsible offseason. They didn't want to make a big offer to LaMarcus Aldridge if he wasn't willing to fit their system (and play alongside Carmelo Anthony), and their backup plans made sense.They signed Robin Lopez, Arron Afflalo and Kyle O'Quinn to highly reasonable deals. It turns out New York is now financially conservative and somewhat...

Knicks say they 'weren't chasing the biggest stars' in offseason

The New York Knicks' offseason has lacked the sizzle many New York fans demand.
