Knicks shuffle roster to give lottery bust a second chance

Knicks nearing deal with G League point guard sensation

The Knicks didn’t want lightning-quick Westchester Knicks point guard Trey Burke to head to Wednesday’s G-League Showcase, a four-day event in Mississauga, Ontario, where all of the league’s talent will be on display. They didn’t want Burke to have a chance to show what the Knicks already know: He’s

Was Kristaps Porzingis’ problem LeBron or his elbow?

It was a rare off night for Kristaps Porzingis. Maybe it was LeBron James. Maybe it was the new contraption on his elbow. With James hounding him at times, Porzingis fell short of his now-usual 30 points. And for the first time he wore a long white right elbow

One Knick worried he will be odd man out when Noah returns

Mindaugas Kuzminskas says he’ll have “a sleepless’’ night as he awaits the Knicks’ decision on who goes or stays. If the Knicks can’t make a trade, say getting a late first-rounder for backup center Kyle O’Quinn, the two likely candidates to be waived Sunday to make room for Joakim

Where does Joakim Noah fit in Knicks’ logjam?

Joakim Noah doesn’t know how much or if he’ll play with the club’s center glut, but he’s delighted his drug suspension is about to end “to help in any way.’’ Noah will miss his 20th and final game (12th this season) Saturday when the Knicks host the Kings, then

Knicks set to face Phil Jackson’s preferred free-agent splash

Former Knicks president Phil Jackson had a French vision last summer with point guard George Hill in the middle of it. According to an NBA source, if Jackson wasn’t ousted, Hill would now be the mentor for rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina. Not Jarrett Jack. Not Ramon Sessions. According to

The Knicks’ first point guard hope could be first to go

ORLANDO, Fla. — In the second quarter Wednesday at Amway Center, Jeff Hornacek motioned to the bench. Point guard Ramon Sessions popped up, started taking off his warm-up top. It was a false alarm. A Knicks assistant told him to sit back down. Either Sessions misread Hornacek’s intentions or,

Knicks GM Scott Perry won’t rule out trade as Noah return nears

ORLANDO, Fla. — Knicks general manager Scott Perry admits he has a big roster decision “looming’’ as center Joakim Noah returns Monday after his 12-game drug suspension is over, indicating a trade is still possible. The Knicks have to remove someone from the roster to make room for Noah,

Frank Ntilikina is Knicks’ only hope at point guard

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Knicks point-guard dilemma looked as bad as advertised in the season opener, a 105-84 loss to the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony. Neither Ramon Sessions, Ron Baker nor French rookie Frank Ntilikina could do a thing. In Ntilikina’s case, it was understandable. After missing summer league, Ntilikina missed the final

Knicks preview: Finding out how low they can go

The only question is whether Jeff Hornacek will replace Derek Fisher in the history books for worst single-season record for a Knicks coach. Probably not, but after an 0-5 preseason, it’s not out of the realm of possibility the rebuilding, post-Carmelo Anthony club could challenge 17-65. The new regime of Steve

Knicks’ point guard situation remains murky

The horn has sounded on the preseason, it’s less than a week until opening night, and the Knicks’ picture at point guard — only the most important position in the modern NBA — remains out of focus. Frank Ntilikina, the franchise’s point guard of the future, sat out a fourth straight

Knicks add Trey Burke to chaotic point-guard situation

With Joakim Noah’s drug suspension for the first 12 games, the Knicks are granted an extra roster spot and likely will use it on a point guard. On Wednesday, the Knicks may have found one. They signed former Utah point guard Trey Burke to a non-guaranteed contract. He’s likely not here

Frank Ntilikina shows signs why he’s Knicks’ PG of the future

He looks like he should be getting ready for his first Midnight Madness instead of his first game in the NBA. To say Frank Ntilikina has a baby face is like saying Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has muscles. We might need to check Ntilikina’s I.D. just to prove he’s really

Frank Ntilikina looks like a “young Kyrie Irving’: Knicks mentor

Knicks veteran point guard Ramon Sessions is here as rookie Frank Ntilikina’s mentor and is already raising the stakes on the 19-year-old’s potential. Sessions already sees some Kyrie Irving in Ntilikina, the 6-5 point guard from France whom the Knicks drafted with the No. 8 pick in the 2017 draft. Signed for

Old Knicks hand wanted Ramon Sessions here years ago

During Dan D’Antoni’s three-plus seasons as a Knicks assistant coach, and even back in Phoenix before the 2007 NBA Draft, he lobbied for Ramon Sessions. D’Antoni is long gone and now head coach at Marshall, his alma mater, but Sessions is finally a Knick. D’Antoni, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni’s brother, has known

Knicks sign their Frank Ntilikina mentor

The Knicks have their mentor for rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina. Ramon Sessions, 31, a 10-season veteran who spent last season with the Charlotte Hornets, has signed a one year deal worth $2.33 million, according to the guard’s agent, Mark Bartelstein. Sessions carries career averages of 10.6 points and 4.1 assists. Last

Derrick Rose wanted no part of the Knicks’ plans for him

Kyrie Irving wants the Knicks. Derrick Rose did not. The divorce was mutual when Rose accepted the Cavaliers’ veteran minimum for one year, $2.1 million last week. The Knicks, who kept in contact with Rose until the end, never offered him the veteran’s minimum, according to an NBA source. Knicks brass believes newly
