Jamal Crawford, Knicks Have Mutual Interest

Jun 25, 2016 7:05 PM

The New York Knicks and Jamal Crawford have mutual interest in free agency this offseason. The Knicks are on the market for a shooting guard and he can play either position albeit usually in a reserve role.

Crawford was traded to the Knicks in 2004 from the Chicago Bulls and remained with the team until he was dealt in 2008 to the Golden State Warriors as they tried to clear cap space for the 2010 free agent class.

"I'm not talking about any one team but everyone knows how I feel about New York," Crawford told The News. "I really enjoyed my time there."

Crawford was the 6th Man of the Year at the age of 36 this past season.

The Los Angeles Clippers own Crawford's Bird Rights and have expressed a desire to re-sign him.

Celtics, Clippers, Heat, Warriors, Spurs, Thunder Get Meetings With Kevin Durant

Jun 25, 2016 11:13 AM

Represenatives of Kevin Durant at Roc Nation are working to solidify invitations with the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant is expected to take the meetings in New York but teams are still awaiting a decision on the final location.

The Thunder remain the frontrunners to re-sign Durant on a one-plus-one contract, according to sources.

But sources say the Warriors, more than than any other rival team, have Durant's attention.

The Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards could still capture meetings with Durant but are currently outside the process.

Durant will leave for a publicity tour in the Far East on July 9th and a decision is expected before he departs.

Derrick Rose Doesn't Know Why He Was Traded, Thanks Bulls For Doing It

Jun 24, 2016 5:03 PM

Derrick Rose was introduced as a member of the New York Knicks on Friday just two days after he was traded by the Chicago Bulls.

Rose is in the final season of his current contract.

“I don’t know why I was traded,” said Rose, “but I would like to tell them thank you. For real.”

Rose said the feeling of being with the Knicks still doesn't feel real.

"It still don’t feel real. Seeing my picture on a billboard or a screen outside the building, it kind of blew me away."

Rose also said he believes he can regain his MVP form.

"I feel like I’m close. But me sitting up here and saying it isn’t going to do anything."
