The Knicks have a lot of cap room and a top-five pick in the NBA draft. Would it be possible for New York to land both Kawhi Leonard and Zion Williamson?

With free agency drawing closer and talk about Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard heating up, Knicks GM Scott Perry says the team will “play the hand we’re dealt” in free agency this summer.
(Monday, May 13, 2019 10:38:11 AM)
It seems logical that both New York teams could at least get a meeting with Kawhi Leonard in early July.

CHICAGO — The Knicks and Patrick Ewing are due. The big night has finally arrived after all the 2018-19 tanking for Zion Williamson. Ewing never had much prosperity in Chicago against Michael Jordan’s Bulls. But now the Knicks’ 7-foot-1 good-luck charm must step up on Tuesday and create a Williamson windfall. Ewing, 34 years after…

This is what Tuesday night is all about, what the lottery is all about, when the pingpong balls start to fly and also start to fall, the first domino in what the Knicks — and every other hapless basketball team in the raffle — dream will be a profound pathway to respectability. This is what…

Durant is likely to miss at least the first two games of the best-of-seven series beginning Tuesday night at Oracle Arena. Coach Steve…

The consensus leading into Tuesday’s lottery is the top three picks will be Williamson, Morant and Barrett. The odds are better…

CHICAGO — The drinks will start flowing at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Slattery’s Midtown Pub in Manhattan. Odds are, the tears will start flowing 65 minutes later. Or will they? A mix of Knicks fan blogs/podcasts will host their third fan viewing party of 2018-19 Tuesday night to pray on 14 percent. Those are…

On Tuesday night, the Knicks will learn their place in the NBA draft lottery. With a No. 1 pick, they’d get Duke superstar Zion Williamson, as well as a commodity the team’s fans rarely have enjoyed: hope. But these are the Knicks we’re talking about — luck is as rare as a playoff appearance. It’s…
