OAKAAK again Am I a throwaway line in a gossip column somewhere? I wonder. I know I’m not specifically mentioned in anything. I just wonder if somehow, somewhere, someone tossed some pithy line about a guy who happened to me.
There’s no indication of Detroit’s willingness to include Rose, 32, in a deal before the March 25 trade deadline, though the team did use its No. 7 pick to select guard Killian Hayes in last year’s NBA draft.
RIP to a New York champ. Harthorne Wingo, a fan favorite for four seasons in the 1970s who ultimately became immortalized in a Beastie Boys song and is one of only 20 Knicks with a championship ring, has passed away at 73-years-old.
At this point, free agents being rumored to be interested in the Knicks only to sign elsewhere has become an annual tradition, most famously when Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving decided to team up on the Brooklyn Nets.
There will be plenty of suitors for Westbrook, so it remains to be seen where he'll end up. With the Knicks franchise still in the dumpster when it comes to other organizations, Westbrook may not even want to be traded to New York.
When Phil Jackson was named the president of the New York Knicks in 2014, many expected his experience and expertise to bring some respectability back to New York. People also thought he could help elevate Carmelo Anthony's game to new heights.
Max Rose, who serves as a congressman for New York's 11th congressional district, called out Knicks owner James Dolan, saying he should sell the team. As a response to Rose's comments, Dolan sent a $50,000 check to his opponent.
It was reported last month that New York is "all-in" on signing VanVleet, and the team could have upward of $40 million in cap space this offseason. However, the Knicks are just one of many teams expected to pursue the 26-year-old's services.
It’s not clear whether the Knicks are now ready to make their decision or whether the organization will narrow down its initial list of 11 candidates to a smaller group of finalists before finalizing a hire.
If the New York Knicks secure a top three pick during the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery and eventually go on to select Georgia star Anthony Edwards on draft night, there’s a chance coach Tom Thibodeau could oversee the youngster’s early NBA development.
The New York Knicks are expected to have their next head coach by July 31st. This comes from SNY’s Ian Begley. As of right now, it appears that Tom Thibodeau remains the leader in the clubhouse for the position.
