“It’s an unbelievable move for (Nets coach Jason Kidd) to have a team like that to start off his first year,’’ Smith said. “They have a great chance to compete for a title. But we’re still the marquee team in New York.”
The New York Knicks have re-signed veteran forward Kenyon Martin. General manager Glen Grunwald announced the signing Thursday.
This will be the season when the Nets-Knicks rivalry will blow up and evolve into one of the greatest in pro sports.
Tim Hardaway, Jr, CJ Leslie, Andrea Bargnani and Ron Artest are the new members of the club. But is the team better? How will they compete with an improving Eastern Conference next year?
Just days after J.R. Smith signed a reported four-year deal with the Knicks, he underwent knee surgery that will put him out three to four months and put his availability for the start of the regular season in serious danger.
He can establish that second unit that comes in and challenges opponents when the starters are winded. He can completely change the game, get the crowd pumped up and propel the Knicks forward.
The Los Angeles Lakers have officially amnestied forward Metta World Peace, creating the possibility that the Queens native will come back home to play for the New York Knicks.
The New York Knicks believe a new home will help Andrea Bargnani regain his old form.
The Knicks announced two of their first moves of the offseason on Wednesday, the first day signings could become official under NBA rules.
When the moratorium lifts on Wednesday night and teams around the league execute all the deals reported over the last 10 days, the Knicks will still be left with many holes to fill and very few good options to fill them.
According to a report, the New York Knicks are preparing an offer to free agent power forward Elton Brand.
J.R. Smith is far from the perfect player, but the Knicks have no choice but to sign him. If J.R. wants to bolt to a bad team for more money, he can.
The Knicks are often too quick to trade away first round picks, since that is the best way for a team to acquire cheap assets. Picks are one of the most valuable NBA assets.
The Knicks and Toronto Raptors are discussing a trade to bring the former No. 1 pick to New York — and it sounds pretty close to a done deal.
Camby says he may have to evaluate his options if he’s traded to the Toronto Raptors in a package for former No. 1 pick Andrea Bargnani.
