NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Knicks will hold their training camp at the United States Military Academy for the first time since 1966.

The team says Thursday it will practice in West Point, New York, from Sept. 30 until Oct. 4 at Christl Arena.

It will be the first training camp under new coach Derek Fisher. The Knicks have been holding camp at their training center in Greenburgh in recent years after having it in Saratoga in former coach Mike D’Antoni’s first two seasons in 2008 and ’09.

The U.S. national team practiced for a day at West Point before the Basketball World Cup.
