Carmelo Anthony    F  Knicks

 

 

The New York Post is reporting that the Celtics will consider trading for Carmelo Anthony if they are eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. According to the Post, the Celtics coaching staff was in favor of trading for Anthony at the trade deadline, but GM Danny Ainge had too many reservations. The article also states that Jae Crowder would be the primary player the Knicks would target in return. After a tumultuous past month for both Anthony and the Knicks franchise, it seems more likely than ever that Melo has already played his final game in a New York uniform. At this point, it appears it's only a matter of when, not if, Anthony gets traded.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis said he "of course" wants to play for the Knicks next season, despite recent friction between himself and the team. "I love New York. I love New York," said Porzingis, who recently skipped his exit interview with Phil Jackson due to the "drama" surrounding the team. He plans to play for the Lithuanian national team this summer, contrary to the Knicks' desire, but at the end of the day he's still under a guaranteed deal until hitting restricted free agency in 2018.

The Knicks lost the draft tiebreaker with the Timberwolves on Tuesday, which means New York will draft seventh, assuming they don't jump into one of the top three spots. Minnesota and New York each finished with a 31-51 record this season. Thus, a drawing was conducted to break the tie. The Knicks will have a 5.3 percent chance to win the lottery and 18.3 percent chance to land in the top three. The lottery drawing will be held on Tuesday, May 16.

Justin Holiday    G/F  Knicks

 

 

Justin Holiday said that he would like to play on the same team as his brother Jrue. "If we can play together, that would be a dream come true and we’d be successful doing it,’’ Justin said. Both players are free agents this summer and it's a no-brainer that Jrue will have a ton of suitors, but Justin should be in demand as well after a fine season in New York. In 82 appearances, he averaged 7.7 points on 43.3 percent shooting with 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 triples in 20.0 minutes. However, unless he lands in a dream spot, it's hard to see him helping standard 12-team fantasy owners next season.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis is planning a long trip back to Latvia that may not include a return to New York until closer to the start of training camp, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. President Phil Jackson threw Carmelo Anthony under the bus and it would appear Porzingis is not happy about it. According to ESPN, KP wasn't at exit interviews because of "drama" surrounding the franchise. The Knicks continue to make news during the postseason despite not being in the playoffs.

Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Kristaps Porzingis skipped exit meetings on Friday "due to frustration over dysfunction, drama" surrounding the Knicks, according to ESPN's Ian Begley. Oh boy. President Phil Jackson said Carmelo Anthony would be "better off somewhere else" and several other comments earlier today, so apparently Porzingis wasn't a fan. Porzingis also favorited Melo's "REALLY" post following Jackson's comments. It turns out publicly taking shots at your franchise player isn't the best way to make other players feel good about the front office. The Knicks are a disaster right now. How's it goink?

Derrick Rose    G  Knicks

 

 

President Phil Jackson said Derrick Rose told him he'd like to return to the Knicks and Rose wants a chance to redeem himself. It looks like Jackson wants to bring back Rose and try to trade Melo, which shows just how differently he's thinking compared other successful NBA front office execs in 2017. Chances are some team is going to overpay for Rose this summer.

Carmelo Anthony    F  Knicks

 

 

Knicks president Phil Jackson said he thinks Carmelo Anthony "would be better off somewhere else." "We have not able to win with him on the court," Jackson said. It's no secret that the Zen Master has been trying to get Melo out of New York, but it took until the offseason for him to go with a clear statement like this one. Earlier today, an ESPN report said Melo is "leaning strongly" to waiving his no-trade clause. He and his family love NY, but he may have played his last game as a Knick. This will be a major storyline this summer.
