  1. Tweet/Quote of the Day: Metta World Peace says Knicks’ locker room problems all about pasta

    Dec 3, 2013, 5:54 PM EST

    Metta World Peace

    Metta said the reported argument between he and Kenyon was over pasta. He said Kenyon likes shell pasta and he likes elbow pasta. — Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) December 3, 2013 That’s Al Iannazzone of Newsday quoting Metta World Peace discussing his reported locker room dust up with Kenyon Martin. James Harden would agree that World…

  2. Report: Kenyon Martin, Metta World Peace had “heated” argument

    Dec 2, 2013, 7:37 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    Losing causes friction in the locker room. Nine losses is a row is almost enough friction to start a fire. For the second time in a day some of that friction around the New York Knicks bubbled to the surface — Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin got in a heated argument Sunday during a…

  3. Carmelo Anthony: “I think we’re playing to lose”

    Dec 2, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    I’m not sure what more can be said about the Knicks play right now after nine straight losses. Carmelo Anthony was searching for a way to describe New York’s play and was rightfully harsh in his assessment after a loss Sunday at home to a New Orleans team that had to play most of the…

  4. Report: Rockets asking for two first round picks in any trade for Omer Asik

    Dec 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EST

    Omer Asik

    We told you that the Rockets were more than willing to deal troubled big man Omer Asik, but that the asking price was extremely high — so high, in fact, that one rival GM called Houston “delusional” in terms of what the team was expecting to net in return on the open market. Now we…

  5. Report: Knicks’ Woodson not on hot seat but management wants lineup changes

    Nov 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Mike Woodson is not to blame for everything going on with the New York Knicks — he’s a good NBA coach trying to do the best he can with an ill-fitting roster. Last season New York was able to knock down a lot of threes and get 54 wins thanks to Carmelo Anthony having a…

  6. Andrea Bargnani has a huge night for Knicks (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Andrea Bargnani

    Things were starting to get dire for the Knicks, at least as much as they can be so grim just five games into the 82-game regular season. Tyson Chandler was lost for 4-6 weeks due to injury, and with a lack of healthy bigs on the roster while Kenyon Martin and Amar’e Stoudemire struggle with…

  7. Carmelo Anthony led closed door meeting with Knicks’ players after Bobcats loss

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:10 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    There are dark clouds over Madison Square Garden right now (figuratively, the Weather Channel makes it sound like a normal fall day there). The Knicks are 1-3 to start the season, lost to the Bobcats at home in their last game, and now will be without Tyson Chandler — one of the two guys they…

  8. Knicks coach Woodson says he’s not worried about job security, won’t look over his shoulder

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:13 PM EST

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are off to a slow 1-3 start to the season, and despite the very legitimate reasons for the early losses, a team that finished second in the Eastern Conference a year ago isn’t expected to be patient while things sort themselves out. Mike Woodson is finding his seat to be a bit warm…

  9. Knicks’ Tyson Chandler out 4-6 weeks with fractured right fibula

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:15 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    This is not good for the Knicks. Not good at all. Starting center and defensive anchor Tyson Chandler will be out 4-6 weeks with a small non-displaced fracture of the right fibula, the team announced. He will be out 4 to 6 weeks. Here’s what you need to know — the Knicks’ defense allows just…

  10. Knicks Tyson Chandler leaves game with knee injury

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:56 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    There are a couple of players the Knicks cannot afford to lose for any stretch of time this season and stay the same squad, and Tyson Chandler is one of them. He is the anchor for their defense and sets a mean pick (plus is good on the roll). But they could be without him…

  11. Former All-Star Michael Redd to officially retire as a Buck Wednesday

    Nov 5, 2013, 3:22 PM EST

    michael-redd-phx

    There was a time when any conversation about “the best shooter in the game today” began with the sweet left-handed stroke of Michael Redd. The All-Star and Olympic gold medalist who spent 11 of his 12 NBA seasons in Milwaukee will officially retire on Wednesday between the first and second quarters as the Bucks take…

  12. Kenyon Martin questionable for Knicks season opener

    Oct 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    The Knicks may, at some point this season, get to the point where they’re playing at the same level or better than the team was last year when it finished with the second best record in the Eastern Conference. But the lack of frontcourt depth is likely to cause some trouble, at least in the…

  13. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EST

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  14. Andrea Bargnani playing a lot of small forward? Bad. Idea. Jeans.

    Oct 3, 2013, 9:15 AM EST

    Andrea Bargnani

    Carmelo Anthony thrived last season on offense for the Knicks playing the four, the power forward spot — he could take bigger guys outside and beat them off the dribble, if teams went small against him he could post up. But that creates some roster challenges for Mike Woodson this season because Andrea Bargnani, Amar’e…

  15. Knicks bring in Cole Aldrich, but with camp invite only

    Sep 24, 2013, 6:29 PM EST

    Cole Aldrich

    The guy drafted one spot ahead of Cole Aldrich back in 2010 is on the cusp of signing a $90 million contract extension (Paul George). Aldrich has been the opposite NBA story. He could not carve out a spot in Oklahoma City (losing time to Nick Collison), and while he had a short stint with…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Last season: If you’ll recall, New York’s offseason leading up to last year was widely regarded as a joke. Jeremy Lin was let go, Raymond Felton was brought in, and then the Knicks seemed to sign all the oldest players available in free agency. But with the benefit of hindsight, the Knicks did about as well…

  17. Knicks sign Jeremy Tyler, he may be team’s backup center

    Aug 6, 2013, 9:08 PM EST

    Jeremy Tyler, Hasheem Thabeet

    The Knicks don’t really have a true center on the roster behind Tyson Chandler. Kenyon Martin has filled the role, but he’s a tough four, not a five. So New York has taken a chance, signing the potentially interesting but more often frustrating Jeremy Tyler, the team announced. Reportedly first year is mostly guaranteed, not…

  18. Report: Knicks in talks with reserve big man Ivan Johnson

    Aug 2, 2013, 8:48 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Knicks are trying to round out the end of their roster, the guys who will rarely get off the bench but can provide a little something when they do. We told you they are in talks with Jannero Pargo, a point guard who has bounced around but never stuck in the league. Now comes…

  19. NBA is picking up part of Derek Fisher’s salary

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    We can list the reasons the Oklahoma City Thunder picked up Derek Fisher on a one-year deal: veteran leadership in the locker room, he shot 35.1 percent from three last season, they needed a shooter of some kind after losing out on Mike Miller, and they had a shortage of guys with shaved heads on…

  20. Report: Kenyon Martin reaches deal to return to Knicks

    Jul 24, 2013, 4:16 PM EST

    Knicks' Martin drives to the basket past Pacers' Mahinimi during the second quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in New York

    Kenyon Martin fit in very well when the Knicks picked him up mid-season last campaign —he averaged 7.2 points a game, shot 60 percent from the field (usually finishing passes around the rim) and was a quality defender in the paint. The Knicks wanted him back, the only question was price. Martin settled for one…

  21. Who are the best free agents left on the board? Here are seven.

    Jul 24, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Gary Neal

    There’s not much left out there. By this point in the summer the guys left as free agents are flawed and are still free agents for a reason. That said, there are still quality players out there who could help teams. Guys with skill sets that if used properly can bring real value to a…

  22. Who is left on free agent market? Pickings getting slim but a few good players out there

    Jul 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

  23. Mike Woodson confident in his ability to coach any player, including Metta World Peace

    Jul 14, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Woodson JR Smith

    LAS VEGAS — Knicks head coach Mike Woodson is with the team in Las Vegas for Summer League, and with reports of mutual interest between New York and Metta World Peace now that he’s cleared amnesty waivers, Woodson was asked if he thought he might have a knack for coaching players with, shall we say, a…

  24. Kenyon Martin drawing interest from Lakers, Clippers, Knicks, more

    Jul 4, 2013, 1:59 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin, Jonas Valanciunas, Alan Anderson

    When the Knicks finally picked up Kenyon Martin off the unemployment line last season it seemed like there could be a fit — he brought the kind of inside hustle and play they needed. A few teams took notice. And now that Martin is a free agent he has a few suitors, reports Chris Broussard…

  25. If Doc is out, who is in for Celtics? Maybe Del Negro, Frank

    Jun 17, 2013, 1:43 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    There is once again momentum to the idea that Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett (then later likely Paul Pierce) are headed to the Clippers. It may or may not happen, but a smart GM like Danny Ainge has to start planning for any eventuality. So, if Doc Rivers is gone from the bench in Boston,…
