  Reportedly, the New York Knicks are not happy about landing fourth overall pick in this year’s NBA draft but they can’t do anything about it. With the Knicks picking fourth, their original draft plans have likely changed. Should they keep the draft pick instead of trade it away, they will most likely target a player who can make an impact alongside veteran Carmelo Anthony. Surely, Karl-Anthony Towns will be with Minnesota Timberwolves, Jail Okafor, with Lakers and D’Angelo Russell going with Philadelphia 76ers. If the top three picks will go as predicted, the Knicks’ first and best option would be the 6-foot-5-tall Emmanuel Mudiay, who played the past season overseas with Guangdong Southern Tigers in China. He averaged 18 points per game in 47.8 percent [&hellip

  It seems that former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets head coach is back to his usual coaching stint. Some fresh reports have confirmed that the New Orleans Pelicans have already interviewed Jeff Van Gundy for the vacant head coaching position of their team. According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Van Gundy has recently met with the Pelicans officials about their coaching vacancy. Reportedly, Van Gundy and Pelicans execs have already communicated through phones and this meeting was their first face-to-face encounter so far. The 53-year-old Van Gundy, who also happens to be a current ESPN color commentator, has been an NBA analyst after he’s fired by the Rockets in 2007 following the team’s Game 7 defeat in the hands of the Utah Jazz.

  With a 39.8 percent chance and second-best-odds of nailing the top pick, the New York Knicks unfortunately received the No. 4 pick at the 2015 NBA draft lottery. It’s fat chance for Knicks to acquire Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor since the two players might likely be picked by other teams like Minnesota Timberwolves or Los Angeles Lakers who are the No. 1 and No. 2 pick respectively. The Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, will pick third. With the results being revealed, avid Knick supporters are very disappointed and so are the players themselves. Despite their dismay, many fans still rooted for their team, since the Knicks are still in a good position to draft a good player in the upcoming NBA draft. If [&hellip

NBA draft lottery has not yet really happened yet there are some water cooler talk circulating around about the players to be drafted on New York Knicks team next season. Could it really be Thanasis Antekokounmpo, the older brother of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis? The former was drafted by the New York Knicks late in the second round of the 2014 draft. And it was apparently Antetokounmpo’s rare blend of speed, size, athleticism and assertion that urged the Knicks to draft him. Rumors are still on with regards to Thanasis’ inclusion on Knicks’ 15-man roster in the NBA for the 2015-2016 season. We can’t blame the people for this speculation because the Westchester Kinicks player can really be an asset to the well-known team. After [&hellip

Uh-oh. Someone’s not convinced that Carmelo Anthony has what it takes to lead the New York Knicks. Yep, that’s Chauncey Billups, former NBA player and former teammate of Anthony. Apparently, Billups doesn’t believe that Anthony has a vocal attribute to stand up to his players. “He’s not that guy,” Billups said on “The Knicks Blog with Anthony Donahue” radio show. “Melo’s a good friend of mine, one of the best players I ever played with, but he’s not the guy who’s going to stand up in the locker room and give this rah-rah speech and get the team to rally. That’s not who he is.” He said that Anthony is more likely to lead by example, not by making speeches. So if the Knicks are [&hellip

LaMarcus Alridge is hot property these days. And why not? Four of the top teams in the NBA – including the New York Knicks – are intent on getting the current Portland Trailblazer star to join their ships. Not surprising. Considering their record this season, they’re in need of players to beef up their front line. But with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Dallas Mavericks and even the San Antonio Spurs in hot pursuit, the possibility of getting Alridge to sign a contract doesn’t look too good. Alridge is about to become a free agent this summer. So everyone’s speculating whether any of the interested teams has a shot or if he’ll choose to stay in Portland. We don’t know for sure which team Alridge [&hellip

  Yep, the Knicks’ worst season is over and off-season starts anew. The regular season ended with the New York Knicks finishing as the league’s second worst record at 17-65, behind only the Minnesota Timberwolves. As such, the team earns a top five selection in this year’s draft. While the Knicks are probably looking to acquire the likes of Towns, Mudiay, Gasol, and Rondo, it’s unclear which current Knicks players the team is going to retain next season. Carmelo Anthony and Tim Hardaway Jr. will probably stay. But for the rest of the team, it’s no guarantee that all of them will get to stay. In order to get their winning streak back, the Knicks will have to fill the roster with competent players. Finishing [&hellip

  Uh-oh! The New York Knicks got their winning streak back and no one is happy about it. Yep. The New York Knicks have been great at losing basketball games for the most part of the season – 64 out of 81 games to be specific – until they made a complete 180 degree turn and started winning. And there lies the problem. Before going on a winning streak, the Knicks have played terrible basketball all year, making them the worst team in the NBA this season, but giving them the highest chance of getting the top pick in the NBA draft. Well, it didn’t last long. All of a sudden, the team decided to give it their best shot and ended up winning three [&hellip

  Yes they could! The New York Knicks officially ended their nine-game losing streak by winning against the Philadelphia 76ers with an impressive 101-91 last Easter Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Andrea Bargnani’s bagging 25 points and Shane Larking’s adding 15 and 11 rebounds helped clinched the victory. It’s no secret that it hasn’t been a lucky season for the Knicks after having lost nine straight and getting an NBA-worst record at 14-62. Before facing off with the 76ers, the Knicks lost to the Washington Wizards, although Ricky Ledo scored a game-high 21 points off the bench. The Knicks gave their best shot as Quincy Acy and Shane Larkin scored 14 points apiece for the Knicks, but it was too late. Adding insult to injury, the Wizards [&hellip

The New York Knicks is looking for a third straight win against the Sacramento Kings, after enjoying two consecutive victories against Detroit (121-115) and Toronto (103-98). These wins are in large part due to the brilliant performance of Andrea Bargnani and Tim Hardaway Jr., with Bargnani totaling 44 points and Hardaway Jr. 40 in those games. “Both nights were great teamwork. Everybody that stepped on the floor did something good for the team,” Bargnani said. And even the Knicks’ head coach Derek Fisher has something to say. “I think this group really is embracing this opportunity to try and kind of build some cohesion and connection as a group despite the win-loss record.” But now that they’ll be facing The Kings without their top players, [&hellip
