Sefolosha suffered a season-ending broken leg in the incident.
Pero Antic says the stabbing of Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland, Copeland’s girlfriend and another woman “happened way before” the arrests outside 1 OAK in Chelsea.
Thabo Sefolosha’s attorney said the forward was injured during the arrest, which followed the stabbing of Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland in Chelsea.
The suspect, Shevoy Bleary-Murdock, 22, is charged with assault and criminal possession of a knife.
Indiana Pacers forward Chris Copeland is apologizing for making a “bad choice” and promised to work toward a full recovery after being stabbed outside a New York nightclub early Wednesday.
The alleged assailant was arrested. Two Atlanta basketball players — Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic — were also taken into custody for allegedly obstructing the crime scene at 1 OAK.
Copeland, a 6-foot-8 small forward, played for the Knicks in 2012-13 before signing a two-year, $6 million contract with the Pacers in July of 2013. He’ll be a free agent at the end of the season.
The New York Knicks believe a new home will help Andrea Bargnani regain his old form.
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.
J.R. Smith and Pablo Prigioni are staying in New York to help the Knicks build on their best season in nearly decades.
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.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
On Tuesday I went over the Knicks’ financial situation for the next three years, so keep that in mind as we go through the offseason decisions that the Knicks will have to make. Here are where the pivotal points are going to be.
Big changes are not coming now. They are two years away. They do have to get better, but that will be incremental, not dramatic. The Knicks are Melo’s team, and right now, that’s a good thing.
This year, The Knicks were one of eight teams left and the second-best team in the East. It’s OK to be proud of that. It’s OK to enjoy that. I know I did.
