Knicks Would Like Kristaps Porzingis To Play This Season If He's Ready

Jan 16, 2019 10:14 AM

A source refuted a report that the New York Knicks prefer Kristaps Porzingis to sit out the entire 18-19 season as he rehabs a torn ACL.

The Knicks reportedly want Porzingis back this season as long as he is mentally and physically ready to play. The Knicks are out of playoff contention.

Porzingis will be a restricted free agent this offseason.

Porzingis did not travel with the Knicks for their trip to London, which could be a sign they are focused on his return this season. Porzingis will be reevaluated in mid-February.

Kevin Durant Wishes Media, Fans Focused More On Games Than Transactions

Jan 8, 2019 6:59 PM

Kevin Durant appeared to enjoy the back-and-forth with the media on Tuesday ahead of the Golden State Warriors' final game of the season against the New York Knicks.

Durant has been linked with the Knicks since last offseason.

Durant said he understands why people so closely follow the transactional part of the NBA.

“I wish it was the other way where it was totally about the game but I get it,” he said. “Our league has grown so much in popularity. The sexy thing is what happens in the summer more so than what happens in the season – playoffs and free agency is the big thing now. I get it.”

Enes Kanter Meets With Scott Perry To Discuss Future With Knicks

Jan 2, 2019 10:04 AM

Enes Kanter met with Scott Perry on Monday to discuss his role with the New York Knicks moving forward.

Kanter's role has diminished as he continues in the final season of his contract while making $18.6 million.

"I did not say, 'Scott, trade me.' No I did not say that,'' Kanter told reporters. "Because I like it here a lot. And I probably won't say to Scott's face, 'Scott I want to get traded.' Because I like it here a lot.

"But again, in the end, we all are competitors, basketball players. I like it here so much, but again I want to win. I want this team to get to the playoffs one day. This is my blood, man, I'm sorry. If anyone asks anything else, I'm not going to do it. I'm going out there to get a win every time."

Kanter said he is more upset by the Knicks' losses than being out of the lineup.

"All this anger and frustration is coming from losing,'' Kanter said. "It's not fun to lose 12, 13, whatever in a row. It's not fun. It's just tough, man. But obviously I had a meeting with Scott [Monday]. We talked about -- he just said, 'You know, this is the growth. This is one of your biggest tests in your career, so just try to be a good teammate.'

"I even asked Scott, if you were in my situation, what would you do?'' the 26-year-old added. "He said, 'The whole league knows you. Right now, we know that you are a very, very good basketball player. Now I want you to go out there and try to have that good character, try to be a good teammate, and try to help all the people.' I understand we're not winning a lot right now. But I guess it's all for the young guys."
