That’s the plan, according to Larkin, whom coach Derek Fisher is leaning toward as backup point guard over Pablo Prigioni despite his inexperience.
Fisher wants speed on the second unit and the second-year Larkin, whose rookie campaign in Dallas was a whitewash...

He drafted and signed Cleanthony Early and signed Carmelo Anthony, Cole Aldrich and Jason Smith and Cole Aldrich. It’s possible Jackson also wanted Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert, Wayne Ellington and/or Shane Larkin...

Phil Jackson has already put his imprint on the New York Knicks since taking over last year, inserting Derek Fisher as head coach, and retaining Carmelo Anthony.

In 2013, during the Knicks’ last playoff run, they were one of the oldest teams in the league. They had just four players who had played four or fewer seasons in the NBA, Iman Shumpert, Pablo Prigioni, Chris Copeland and James White. Out of those four, only Shumpert was under the age of 28.
This upcoming year, with Phil Jackson as the president, New York has been attempting to...
Pablo Prigioni has done this before — backing up Jose Calderon at point guard. The Argentine and Spaniard were teammates in the Spanish League years ago with Tau Ceramica de Vitoria and now they have been reunited in Phil Jackson’s all-international point guard tandem with the Knicks.
Prigioni is delighted to have Calderon — the Knicks’ biggest offseason acquisition. And...

“He’s close, he’s getting close,” Woodson said of Tyson Chander’s status before Monday’s loss against Washington.
