Bleacher Report: Are the New York Knicks Finally Making the Right Moves?

Interesting Dan Favale piece: Baseline sensibility is an awfully low bar to which to hold an NBA franchise. Celebrating what feels like the bare minimum of coherent thinking doesn’t sit right. But we’d be remiss not to acknowledge that, in this case, it also represents a shift in operations. The bare minimum has by and […] Knicks feel ‘less inclined’ to trade for Russell Westbrook and his massive salary, looking for long-term cap flexibility

From the great Ian Begley: After three days of free agency, the Knicks still have $18 million in cap space. And it doesn’t seem like they’re in a hurry to use it. Even after Sunday’s Ed Davis trade, teams were under the impression that the Knicks remain open to providing cap relief to general managers […]

NY Post: Knicks’ free-agency flop means tank is on for Cade Cunningham

The Knicks Select Obi Toppin With the #8 Overall Pick

The Knicks selected Obi Toppin from Dayton with the #8 pick. He had a strong college season, but he’s also 22 years old, older than Frank Ntilikina, Kevin Knox and Mitchell Robinson. And he’s not a great defender. However, he has a strong offensive game and really, whatever your thoughts are on the pick itself, […]

Looking at Life Through Leon Rose-Colored Glasses: The 2020 NBA Draft Thread
