    Ex-Knicks guard Sasha Vujacic has reached an agreement with Italian team team Fiat Torino, the club announced today. Vujacic spent the last two seasons with the Knicks. He played sparingly for much of his New York tenure but was a valuable veteran presence in the locker room for Knicks young big man Kristaps Porzingis.

    hopefully we can find more players who are a valuable presence on the court 🙂

    not a bad nba career for a guy picked 27th over a decade ago…

    I’m impressed that no one in this intelligent forum has brought this up, but damn it, if HoodieMelo shows up this year, he’ll be seeing Durant in the finals.

    I hope that Porzingis-Hornacek issue isn’t a real thing.

    Xavier Rathan-Mayes had a good game against Venezuela for Canada in FIBA competition. 22 points and 8 rebounds.

    Does Peter Vecsey have any credibility any more?

    Vescey has actually been surprisingly on point recently with stuff, enough so that him reporting it makes me think it is actually true.

    I think Hornacek is really on the clock this year, whether this is true or not.

    He doesn’t actually have a sustained track record of success beyond one good season. He doesn’t appear to have got the team playing hard last year, and didn’t instil any clear sense of accountability among his ‘stars’ for their total lack of effort on D.

    I liked the hiring at the time and I hope he succeeds. But he’s not got a lot of cover. They don’t have to win early – not sure management wants or expects it – but if they don’t play hard and show some development among the young guys I’d be surprised if he’s still in post at Christmas.

    I think the expectations are so low that Hornacek keeps his job. We are better than projections think we will be, especially if Willy and KP take a step forward. If Hornacek gets fired, btw, it will without a doubt be Mark Jackson who takes this job.
