Derrick Rose    G  Knicks

 

 

The Timberwolves are reportedly interested in pursuing Derrick Rose as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. There were a lot of rumors flying around during the trade deadline that the Wolves were interested in trading away Ricky Rubio in a package that would net them Rose, so it does appear that Tom Thibodeau has a clear interest in reuniting with his former point guard. If Rose does wind up wearing a Timberwolves jersey next season, that would likely queue the end of Rubio's run in Minnesota.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

President Phil Jackson met recently with Kristaps Porzingis' brother to discuss the issue with the Knicks exit meetings, according to Stefan Bondy of the NY Daily News. The report adds this meeting accomplished very little. The big man didn't attend exit meetings back in April, which may have had to do with the Carmelo Anthony drama. Jackson has said he's looking to do more "on-scene, on-target mentoring" and he did show up for the NBA Draft Combine this year. Expect plenty of drama with the Knicks this summer.

Carmelo Anthony    F  Knicks

 

 

The New York Post is reporting that Phil Jackson's negative comments about Carmelo Anthony have diminished Anthony's trade value. It certainly has been surprising to hear Jackson be so critical of a player he hopes to trade this summer. "Phil made a statement basically that Carmelo’s a losing type of player. Well, if he’s a loser for the Knicks, he’s going to be a winner someplace else? That obviously didn’t help," one Eastern Conference executive said. It will definitely be interesting to see how this sordid situation plays itself out over the next few months.

Phil Jackson    C  Knicks

 

 

Phil Jackson again stated that he believes it would be best for both parties if Carmelo Anthony waived his no-trade clause. Phil first expressed these sentiments back in April at the end of the regular season. Speaking with reporters at the NBA Draft combine in Chicago on Friday, Jackson spoke out again. "We'd like him to have success," said Jackson. "The opportunity is narrowing. We'd just like him to have success somewhere. We're not going to be there. Hopefully, we'll be maybe a playoff team next year. It would be tough to consider us a possible champion." It seems to be only a matter of time before Anthony and the Knicks finally part ways.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Coach Jeff Hornacek said there is "no doubt" that Kristaps Porzingis will be a member of the Knicks next season. There was an ESPN report earlier this week that several teams had called the Knicks to gauge their possible interest in trading Porzingis after KP blew off his exit interview. However, other teams doing their due diligence does not mean the New York would even consider moving their franchise cornerstone. They would be foolish to engage in talks, as they have a promising young stud locked into a very affordable rookie-scale contract.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis' brother and agent, Janis Porzingis, said the big man wants to remain with the Knicks. "[Kristaps] wants to stay in New York; he feels at home there," Janis said. "There is no question about it. The only thing he wants is for the Knicks to create an environment where he can develop and grow as a player and win." Porzingis' name has been in the rumor mill since he blew off his exit meeting with the Knicks and several teams have inquired about his availability, and Phil Jackson didn't help matters when he refused to call him untouchable in trade talks. A trade seems very unlikely, but if it does happen, Janis said his brother will "play out his contract and head into free agency, where he can choose his own destiny."

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis said that his Twitter account was hacked over the weekend. A tweet appeared on his account that said "LA Clippers" with three smiley faces, but it was deleted very quickly and Porzingis and his representatives made it clear that it did not come from the Knicks' franchise player. "I would never tweet something like that. I dont even use that emoji smiley face," Porzingis said. The timing was certainly interesting because Carmelo Anthony has been heavily linked to the Clippers and several teams inquired about Porzingis' availability after he blew off his exit meeting with the Knicks, but there's no reason to think that he's not telling the truth.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Several teams reached out to the Knicks to talk about possible trades for Kristaps Porzingis, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.com. The timing was after Porzingis skipped the exit interviews with Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills. The details are still unclear on the parameters of a trade and teams may have just been doing their due diligence. Expect plenty of drama surrounding the Knicks, Phil, Carmelo Anthony and more this summer.

Carmelo Anthony    F  Knicks

 

 

Kobe Bryant said that Phil Jackson will always speak his mind, so it's Carmelo Anthony's decision whether or not he wants to be around that kind of GM. "Phil’s always gonna speak his mind and speak his opinion," Bryant said. "It all depends on the athlete and what the athlete wants to do with it. If you want to shun it, or do you want to use it as fuel to be better? You can’t enjoy the springtime without having an awful winter." Jackson said during his season-ending presser that he felt Melo would be "better off somewhere else," and for what it's worth, Knicks' legend Charles Oakley said Anthony "deserves better" and should leave. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the Knicks and Melo this offseason.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis wants Knicks assistant coach Joshua Longstaff as an assistant with the Latvian national team this summer. Longstaff has been an assistant coach since the Derek Fisher days and he also worked with Porzingis last summer. Porzingis has said he will try to come back to NY when he can, but he won't be setting a date. The Carmelo Anthony drama will be the main story for the Knicks this summer, but there will be plenty of KP rumors.
