  1. Three biggest surprises of the NBA Draft

    Jun 24, 2011, 10:02 PM EST

    Tristan Thompson

    There are always a few surprises, like that guy you drafted you thought was 21 turns out to be 26. Funny, but really that mistake by the Timberwolves was moot because Tanguy Ngombo was never going to play in the NBA. But there were some surprises when the picks still mattered. Here are the three…

  2. Patrick Ewing to interview for Pistons head coaching job

    Jun 24, 2011, 3:19 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v San Antonio Spurs

    Up until now, Kim Hughes — the interim coach with the Los Angeles Clippers before Vinny Del Negro was hired — was the tallest NBA coach I remember seeing. A former NBA player, he is a legit 6’10’. But if the Detroit Pistons hire Orlando assistant Patrick Ewing, all bets are off. And Ewing will…

  3. Barea says he’d sign with Dallas… or the Lakers, or Heat

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:25 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Every NBA finals there is one player used brilliantly by his team who has a big playoffs, happens to be a free agent, gets overpaid and is asked to play a bigger role with another team. It doesn’t always work as planned. J.J. Barea is perfectly poised to be that guy. The Mavericks want to…

  4. Kemba Walker is falling in the draft. How low will he go?

    Jun 23, 2011, 11:42 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    There was a time, right after Kemba Walker made big plays in crunch time leading his UConn Huskies to the national title, that Walker was a top five pick in this draft. But his stock is falling and he could plummet down the draft board all the way to the Knicks at No. 17 (no…

  5. Despite rumors everywhere, Suns say Nash not being traded

    Jun 22, 2011, 10:21 AM EST

    Steve Nash

    It was maybe the craziest rumor of this draft… which is saying something. Steve Nash to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the No. 2 pick was discussed, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. He went on to say in the article it was unlikely because Nash wants to go to a contender, not a 17-win team.…

  6. Knicks targeting Shumpert, Fared at #17?

    Jun 21, 2011, 6:32 PM EST

    Fared

    From probasketballdraft.com: @thenyknicks appear focused on Iman Shumpert and Kenneth Faried at 17. Donnie wants players that help on court right away. Both Faried and Shumpert are projected to be available when the Knicks pick at 17.

  8. Report: Knicks trying to trade up to get Jimmer Fredette

    Jun 20, 2011, 2:41 PM EST

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    Jimmer Fredette and how he fits in the NBA divides scouts and fans, but there is one thing almost all agree on — he’s a better fit in a wide-open offensive system where he would have more of a green light. For example, Mike D’Antoni’s system with the New York Knicks. Which explains why ESPN’s…

  9. Knicks targeting Jonny Flynn?

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:59 AM EST

    Jonny Flynn

    Back when Mike D’Antoni first took over as head coach of the Knicks and they were trying to get back on their feet, the Knicks signed a player they thought would be the point guard of the future. With D’Antoni’s system so reliant on a distributing playmaker, grabbing a versatile point guard who had shown…

  10. Isiah Thomas: LeBron is going through what all stars do

    Jun 17, 2011, 3:09 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Isiah Thomas is making some sense. So, clearly we are not talking trades. But don’t forget Thomas is a Hall of Fame point guard who led a team to multiple rings and knows what it takes to climb the mountain. He got smacked down by the Celtics plenty before he reached the summit. And LeBron…

  11. Stoudemire says LeBron needs to respect, connect like MJ

    Jun 16, 2011, 1:06 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Michael Jordan could be arrogant. He punched teammate Steve Kerr in the face during a practice. There were gambling and infidelity issues. Things might have been different for Jordan in today’s world of cell phone cameras and social media — not to mention blogs — but the fact is a lot of people knew about…

  12. Knicks looking to move up in the draft?

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:37 PM EST

    Alec Burks

    From Alan Han of Newsday: Newsday reported in early June that#Knicks would look into moving up if possible. Rumors now surfacing about talks w/ IND (15), others. This is a pretty thin draft, so the Knicks will have a pretty hard time finding an impact player with the 15th pick: right now, the players projected to…

  13. Heat looking to add Samuel Dalembert?

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:02 PM EST

    DALEMBERT_SAMUEL

    This isn’t a rumor based on sources so much as it is one based on common sense. As well as Joel Anthony played as a starting center against both Boston and Chicago, the Heat desperately need a true center who can protect the rim, finish plays, and provide both size and athleticism on both ends…

  14. Knicks’ shooting guard options could make for their own reality show

    Jun 11, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    One consequence of the super-teams is that you’re always going to be shopping for second-rate players to “fill in the blanks” as Donnie Walsh put it on his conference call when he stepped down. You’re simply never going to have a great amount of options because of how tight your cap is. That can only…

  15. Carmelo Anthony surprised by Walsh’s departure

    Jun 7, 2011, 1:06 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    How unexpected was the exit of Donnie Walsh from the power structure of the Knicks? It caught Carmelo Anthony off guard, he told Newsday. The Knicks forward said Monday that he was getting treatment at the Knicks ‘ practice facility Friday when he heard that Walsh will be ending his tenure as team president. “It…

  16. Ford: Walsh still calling shots for Knicks’ 2011 draft

    Jun 6, 2011, 6:16 PM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, former Knicks general manager Donnie Walsh will still be “calling the shots” for the Knicks in the 2011 NBA draft.  While it’s a bit of an awkward situation, the Knicks seem to trust Walsh, whose replacement may come from within the organization, in this situation. According to Ford, the Knicks,…

  17. Don’t be surprised if Knicks stay in house for new GM

    Jun 6, 2011, 4:13 PM EST

    madison-square-garden

    Isiah Thomas will not be the next president and general manager of the New York Knicks. That is very different than saying he will not have influence, but he will not have the job and the title and the desk. Just ask him. Who will? Probably a few of the guys already in the building…

  18. Mike D’Antoni isn’t concerned about his job security

    Jun 5, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    With Donnie Walsh out in New York, immediately the questions turned towards the future of Mike D’Antoni. Yes, D’Antoni was part of the Knicks’ resurgence. Yes, D’Antoni was instrumental in their playoff run. And yes, he has several years left on his contract. But this is the Knicks we’re talking about and if anything, they’re…

  19. Isiah Thomas says he does not want to be Knicks president

    Jun 3, 2011, 8:34 PM EST

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    It doesn’t work like this. So don’t believe it. But we will first report the official news — Isiah Thomas told ESPN multiple times he does not want to be president of the New York Knicks in the wake of Donnie Walsh being pushed out of the job. “I have no desire to return as…

  20. Donnie Walsh out as Knicks president in shocker

    Jun 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    UPDATE 4:16 pm: According to Howard Beck at the New York Times, another sticking point of negotiations was Dolan’s insistence that Walsh take a 40 percent paycut, from $5 million down to $3 million. Yes, it’s still a boatload of money, but what if your boss asked you to take a 40 percent paycut? It’s…

  21. Is Mike D’Antoni’s job now in danger in New York?

    Jun 3, 2011, 3:32 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni, Toney Douglas

    Donnie Walsh, the consummate professional who never speaks ill of ownership in public, said all the right things in his phone conference call Friday about him leaving as president of the Knicks. Well, the right things if you’re Knicks owner James Dolan. Nobody bought a word of it, but Walsh went through the motions, as…

  22. Mike D’Antoni is not going to coach the Raptors

    Jun 2, 2011, 12:01 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni

    Almost as soon as news got out yesterday evening that the Toronto Raptors had let go of Jay Triano as coach, the rumors started in New York. Particularly from the anti Mike D’Antoni factions. Maybe the Raptors would come after him and steal him. After all, Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo was the Suns GM when…

  23. Larry Hughes giving away free gas

    May 30, 2011, 3:47 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Larry Hughes has a passion for organ donors and organ transplants. His younger brother Justin got to live nine years longer thanks to one and the Larry Hughes Foundation works to promote organ donation and works with the families of recipients and donors. And, the foundation gives away gas. At least it did Sunday, according…

  24. Report: Knicks, Donnie Walsh to finally get deal done

    May 30, 2011, 10:16 AM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    Remember all the drama about whether Donnie Walsh was going to have the extension on his contract picked up or be let go by the Knicks? Then it turned out he didn’t have the extension picked up because they planned to give him a new deal instead? Except, he’s been on the job without a…

  25. Look for Knicks to go after Dalembert, not Marc Gasol

    May 24, 2011, 1:03 PM EST

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Knicks need a center. There will be a few interesting ones out there on the free agent market. But while Marc Gasol is one of the biggest name and the one that gets mentioned a lot in conjunction with the Knicks, that is not what they are looking for, tweets Chris Manix of Sports…
