NY Post: Kenny Wooten set up for Knicks chance in two-way contract shuffle

Berman reports, “The Knicks have paved the way for shot-blocking power forward Kenny Wooten to get some time in the NBA.

The Knicks are waiving Ivan Rabb, their two-way contract player, an NBA source confirmed.

That will allow the Knicks to now sign Wooten, already a member of the Westchester Knicks, to a two-way deal. Wooten starred at summer league after being undrafted out or Oregon and the Knicks were concerned he was going to sign elsewhere.

Rabb was signed right before the season opener to a two-way deal when the Kris Wilkes’ agreement fell apart.

Rabb came on recommendation from since-fired coach David Fizdale and never saw action with the Knicks.

The Knicks have to rejigger their two-way contract guys by Jan. 15. After that deadline, no two-way player can be signed. Wooten is allowed 45 days with the big club.”

Good move.

An obvious one, but still a good one!

The Knicks continue their playoff push with a Sunday afternoon matchup against the Miami Heat.

Let’s hope that the Heat players are just now waking up after partying all night in New York City.

As Zion doesn’t score at all.

The Knicks head home to keep their playoff push going by hosting the New Orleans Pelicans, but once again without the services of Julius Randle and likely with no Marcus Morris and Dennis Smith Jr., as well.

The Pelicans are actually scoring really well lately, but they’re not exactly a great team, so a win would’t be surprising for the Knicks, who are a red-hot 6-10 since Mike Miller took over coaching duties from David Fizdale last month.

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ The Team That Missed Out On Both Frank Ntilikina AND Dennis Smith Jr. in the 2017 Draft

The Knicks, now solidly back in the playoff race at 10-27, have cleverly decided to hold tight and not trade any of their players before the deadline. Now, you might be thinking, “Wait, Brian, don’t smart basketball teams often say things like ‘We’re not going to make a move’ in an attempt to increase their leverage so that they could get a better deal when they do make a move?” Yes, that is something that happens with smart basketball teams.

Moving on, the Knicks bring their playoff push to Utah tonight to take on the Jazz, who missed out on both Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr (plus Malik Monk!) before they were forced to pick the remaining dregs of the lottery in Donovan Mitchell. He has worked out okay for the Jazz, but you know they must still have regrets.

The Knicks are riding high with six wins in their last sixteen games, so this is a big game for their brilliantly-constructed squad filled with correctly valued players who they won’t trade but also don’t help them win.

Let’s go! Knicks?

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ Anthony Davis’ Team Before He Leaves For the Knicks

The Knicks’ road trip continues with a visit to the Lakers, whose star player, Anthony Davis, turned down an extension from the Lakers, so the only remaining possibility is that he plans to sign with the Knicks this offseason, but only if they prove that they care about winning by not trading Marcus Morris.

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ A Team That Just Gave Up 140 Points to the Grizzlies

This next stop might be a lot easier than you would normally expect. Playing without Paul George and Patrick Beverley, the Los Angeles Clippers were just embarrassed on their home floor by Ja Morant (…sigh…this team is perpetually one pick away, aren’t they?) and the Memphis Grizzlies just last night, so the quick turnaround should also help the Knicks a lot.

The shorthanded Clippers are obviously still much better than the Knicks, but if you’re going to steal a game, this is ripe for the stealing. Kawhi playing a day game after a night game? With his injury issues? It could get interesting.

Anyhow, let’s go! Knicks?

2019-20 Game Thread: Knicks @ Suns – The Knicks Still Haven’t Lose a Game in 2020!

The Suns are A. not that good and B. playing a bit over their heads recently, so this has all the makings of A. a win and B. a win that will make it seem like the Knicks are better than they actually are, as the Suns really aren’t that good.

The road to 32 wins continues apace!

Let’s go? Knicks!

Happy New Year, everybody!

The Knicks can’t play Christmas games anymore, but hey, it’s a New Year’s game! That’s something!

The Knicks welcome Melo back to the Garden and it’s funny how, like, NO ONE CARES.

RIP, David Stern.
