Thomas essentially gave up two lottery picks for the big man — as WFAN co-host Boomer Esiason pointed out — though the former Knicks president still doesn’t see it that way.

Phil Jackson is watching players like Marc Gasol, Jimmy Butler, LaMarcus Aldridge and Draymond Green, all of whom (or none of which) could be targets of the Knicks this summer.

“For Knicks fans here, what you want is somebody who has a plan, who has a theory on how to build a team over time.”
There were times, Carmelo Anthony acknowledges, he wondered if he made the right decision to stay in New York.
