Michael Beasley    F  Knicks

 

 

Michael Beasley said he didn't want to re-sign with the Bucks because of playing-time issues under coach Jason Kidd. "Milwaukee got a nice young core – unfortunately, the bulk of their corps play my position," Beasley said. "Minutes for me, there just wasn’t what I wanted to see." Beasley describes himself as a "walking bucket" and thinks he'll handle the pressure in New York well. If the Knicks move on from Carmelo Anthony, Beasley could have some sneaky value for his scoring prowess -- per 36 minutes, Beasley put up 20.3 points per game last season.

Joakim Noah    F/C  Knicks

 

 

Joakim Noah said he's ready to redeem himself for testing positive for Androgen. He still has 12 games left on his suspension, so he won't be playing until at least Nov. 13. Noah was a nightmare last season after the Knicks gave him a four-year, $72 million deal, but the rebuilding team may actually not play him enough to make that contract worthwhile. Willy Hernangomez is still a decent fantasy target in the later rounds.

Joakim Noah    F/C  Knicks

 

 

Joakim Noah said he lost confidence in himself last season but is determined to bounce back in 2017-18. Noah was a major disappointment last season, both for fantasy owners and the Knicks front office, which signed him to a four-year, $72 million contract last July. Injuries significantly limited him and he also admitted that a loss of confidence doomed him as well. "I went through a lot of adversity,’’ Noah said. "You go through injuries. I lost my confidence. It’s about bouncing back and showing who I am through these tough times." Even if he shows up to camp healthy, Noah will miss the first 12 games of the season while serving his suspension.

Michael Beasley    F  Knicks

 

 

Michael Beasley said he believes playing in New York will "bring the best out of [him]." Beasley sounded supremely confident in his first interview as a Knick. "I’ll bring what they saw in college,’’ said Beasley. "I just need the opportunity to show that... I’ve always been a walking bucket. Nobody can stop me, hasn’t stopped me my last nine years." Beasley's playing time and scoring opportunities will be determined by what happens with Carmelo Anthony. If the Knicks trade Melo and don't bring back another small forward, then Beasley may be inserted into the starting lineup.

Jamel Artis    F  Knicks

 

 

The Knicks have signed Jamel Artis to a one-year, partially guaranteed deal. Artis played well for New York in summer league, earning him a spot on the team's 20-man roster for training camp. While it is unlikely he makes the final 15-player roster on opening night, the Knicks still have one two-way spot open, and Artis will be competing to secure that contract.

Nigel Hayes    F  Knicks

 

 

Nigel Hayes agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Knicks. He agreed to a camp deal with the Knicks back in June, so it's unknown if there was something added to that deal here. The Wisconsin product went undrafted in June, but he was impressive in his senior season with 14.0 points per game.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

The Knicks reportedly have no interest in including Kristaps Porzingis in a package for Kyrie Irving. "[Knicks president] Steve Mills and [Knicks general manager] Scott Perry on the record were very clear that Kristaps was part of the future,’’ an anonymous source to Newsweek said in reference to comments made last month by both executives. "In all the discussions since then — there were other rumors before that Cleveland would want Kristaps — and it didn’t seem that [the Knicks] were interested at all in a conversation." The Knicks don't appear to be very willing to put together an enticing offer for Irving, so Uncle Drew winding up in New York seems like an unlikely scenario.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kristaps Porzingis has emerged as a "primary target" for Cleveland as they consider possible trade scenarios involving Kyrie Irving. Wojnarowski notes the Knicks are not currently interested and would only consider such a trade if the Cavs were also willing to take back Joakim Noah's contract. However, Woj does state that New York may consider moving KP at some point if the relationship between Porzingis and the team doesn't improve. "There continues to be distance between Porzingis and the organization, and how the Knicks truly value Porzingis' future could become clearer once they're together to begin the season," writes Wojnarowski.
