PHILADELPHIA — It’s the family’s biggest regret.
Jean-Micheal Mudiay said he believes younger brother Emmanuel’s career would look differently had he attended SMU and learned under Larry Brown for a season instead of going to China to play professionally after high school.
After two and a half underachieving seasons with
PHILADELPHIA — Jeff Hornacek thinks Kristaps Porzingis will look back at his catastrophic ACL tear and “be glad he went through it,” saying he has a “great attitude.”
Porzingis is expected to undergo surgery to repair the ACL tear in his left knee Tuesday — one week after suffering
PHILADELPHIA — As reporters entered the visitors’ locker room at Wells Fargo Center late Monday, Tim Hardaway Jr. yelled out an obscenity.
He wasn’t angry at the media but himself. And he let it be known once he began his salty postgame interview.
The Knicks guard continued his horrid shooting
You have a young, foreign-born, lottery-pick point guard who has struggled lately as a rookie.
So you trade for a young, foreign-born lottery-pick point guard who has struggled since entering the league in 2015-16. What does that tell the other guy?
Nothing negative, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek hopes.
Hornacek does not
INDIANAPOLIS — Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek made good on his promise to play all four of his point guards, but it wasn’t enough to topple the Pacers.
Though newcomer Emmanuel Mudiay rang up an impressive double-double in his Knicks debut, the club suffered its sixth straight loss in a
INDIANAPOLIS — The Knicks have three point guards aged 25-and-under who need grooming, particularly 2017 lottery pick Frank Ntiliikna and 2015 lottery pick Emmanuel Mudiay, who made his Knicks debut versus the Pacers Sunday.
As a result, the Knicks are considering bringing aboard former point guard Pablo Prigioni as
INDIANAPOLIS — Kristaps Porzingis still wants to somehow be part of All-Star Weekend, even if he’s on crutches in New York next Sunday.
As hokey as it might sound, Porzingis is sending boxes of his new “Zing Bars” special delivery to Los Angeles to distribute to his Team LeBron
INDIANAPOLIS — You can call them “The French Connection.”
Maybe there’s some karma with newly acquired Knicks point guard Emmanuel Mudiay joining French rookie Frank Ntilikina.
Mudiay said he, too, is fluent in French, having grown up in the Congo, and they already have been bonding in that language. The
The Knicks’ controversial decision to trade a 23-year-old, All-Rookie first-team center selection for two distant second-round picks became clearer Thursday in Toronto.
The 7-foot-1 former Vanderbilt center Luke Kornet, who has spent the season with G-League Westchester, made his NBA debut a historic one at Air Canada Centre.
Center Enes Kanter, perhaps the last guy in New York — beyond the drunk on the corner stool of a bar on W. 33rd Street — may have run up the white flag on the Knicks’ playoff hopes in the wake of Kristaps Porzingis’ injury.
“It’s tough. We are
There are a thousand reasons why this will never happen, of course. We could list them all here but: a) it’s depressing, and b) the list would probably run over into Mushnick’s page and he charges exorbitant rent.
So we can focus on the one reason why it should
TORONTO — Jarrett Jack isn’t trying to scare Kristaps Porzingis, just warn him. The Knicks veteran point guard said it took him 17 months before he was back and the process “is going to suck.’’
However, there’s a caveat. When Jack tore his ACL in January 2016, he also
It won’t speed up Kristaps Porzingis’ rehab process, but credit Knicks general manager Scott Perry for jumping in to pacify a saddened fan base with a series of well-intended sentiments.
It’s part of the job, even if former president Phil Jackson didn’t think it was, and the first-year GM
Knicks general manager Scott Perry said the addition of young point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is part of the team’s “talent acquisition phase” and is no reflection on any disappointment with struggling rookie lottery point guard Frank Ntilikina.
Thursday’s trade with the Nuggets for Mudiay, a lottery pick in 2015,
TORONTO – Jared Jeffries, the former Nuggets scouting director and ex-Knicks forward, told The Post that Emmanuel Mudiay desperately needed out of Denver before his entire career was shot.
Denver had moved on with their 2016 first-rounder, Jamal Murray, and Mudiay, 21, was regressing.
Jeffries, who helped draft Mudiay with
TORONTO — Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina reacted with his usual nonchalance about the Knicks trading for another young point guard — Emmanuel Mudiay — at Thursday’s trade deadline.
“It’s good — a young player, good for our future,” Ntilikina said before the Knicks’ 113-88 loss to the Raptors at
TORONTO — This hopeless season carried on for the Knicks without Kristaps Porzingis, but the result was same old, same old in ‘O Canada.’
The Raptors won their fifth straight game over the Knicks on Thursday at Air Canada Centre, routing the depleted club 113-88.

TORONTO — In the end, the Knicks were intrigued by a lottery-pick point guard the franchise passed on in 2015 and a lottery-pick point guard GM Scott Perry once selected in Orlando.
The Knicks were in the ballgame for both Emmanuel Mudiay and Elfrid Payton, the athletic penetrator with
The Knicks achieved their goal of getting more athletic at the trade deadline by acquiring Emmanuel Mudiay from the Nuggets, ESPN.com reports.

TORONTO — The co-captain isn’t looking to abandon the sinking ship.
Knicks shooting guard Courtney Lee said despite Kristaps Porzingis’ ACL tear that ended his season and likely will affect the first section of next season, he wants to be here.
The Knicks are looking at a more significant rebuild
Kristaps Porzingis is gone for the season, but Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek won’t be going anywhere.
There were previous indications from team brass Hornacek wouldn’t be evaluated until after this season despite the clamor from the fan base that has watched the Knicks slide to a season-worst 23-32 record.
The Knicks have little choice in the matter of what they must do now. If there is one silver lining — and it is but a thin sliver of silver — it is this: The fantasy they’d created for themselves that they could somehow sneak into the playoffs
For some sports fans, college basketball takes center stage the day after the Super Bowl. For Knicks fans, it happened one day after that.
A torn ACL for Kristaps Porzingis should end any hope of a late-season playoff push for the Knicks.
Now, there’s something else for Knicks fans to
Knicks general manager Scott Perry said he met with Kristaps Porzingis late Tuesday and told him his job will be to make sure when the All-Star gets back, he’s got a better team to come back to.
“[It’s] very tough news to swallow,’’ Perry said Wednesday at the Tarrytown
Knicks president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry woke up to the hardest job in sports Wednesday. “The Franchise’’ has a torn ACL, imperiling the franchise’s future, perhaps wasting a full year of progress. So much of this rebuild was based on the 7-3 lanky Latvian turning into a superstar
The next day the grimace was gone. Kristaps Porzingis just looked frustrated.
The 7-foot-3 Knicks unicorn looked almost ordinary squeezed into a lobby-room chair at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, just another patient for just another surgery.

The Knicks without Kristaps Porzingis is a scary thought. It’s an even scarier sight.
Providing a preview of what the rest of the season could look like without Porzingis, the Knicks unraveled following the season-ending injury to their franchise player, and dropped their fourth straight game, allowing an early
Players around the league have shared their concern and shock after the news of Kristaps Porzingis’ torn ACL broke, but it probably hit Carmelo Anthony harder than most.
“Yeah, it’s sad, man. It’s sad,” Anthony said when asked about his former Knicks teammate’s injury after the Thunder routed the
Willy Hernangomez got his wish, and the Knicks got another young player to develop.
The day after his close friend Kristaps Porzingis was felled by a devastating season-ending ACL tear, Hernangomez is moving on to Charlotte, a source confirmed.

Willy Hernangomez is ready to leave New York, even if he doesn’t want to.
Following a report that Hernangomez’s representatives requested that the Knicks trade the rarely used, second-year center before Thursday’s trade deadline, the 23-year-old spoke before Tuesday night’s 103-89 loss to the Bucks, hoping for any resolution,
