Nerlens Noel trade creates need for Knicks to sign Mo Bamba in free agency

The New York Knicks are back on the market for a backup center after trading Nerlens Noel (and Alec Burks) to the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday evening. And because the Orlando Magic aren’t expected to extend a qualifying offer to Mo Bamba, the Knicks could turn to the Harlem native in free agency.

Adios to Alec Burks, the Knicks Mid King

Adios to Alec Burks, the Knicks Mid King

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via You will be remembered fondly, AB. Does the name Terry Cummings mean anything to you? The 1997-98 season was the ‘90s Knicks version of a down year. Patrick Ewing broke his wrist in December, leaving a team that had been a title contender four of the past five years marooned among the East’s also-rans. But being the ‘90s, even a “bad” Knicks team finished above .500 and avenged the P.J. Brown Atrocity by eliminating Miami on their home floor in the decisive Game 5. Rewind to February that season. The Knicks traded...

The New York Knicks dumped Kemba Walker’s deal on Detroit’s salary cap on Draft night as part of a three-team deal. Just a few hours ago, the Knicks got back at it and worked out another trade with the Pistons in which both Nernels Noel and Alec Burks—along with a pair of second-round picks—will land in Detroit ahead of next season. Those two moves were all the Knicks needed to open enough cap space to make a run at upcoming free agent and...

Rumor: Celtics interested in Knicks’ Alec Burks

Rumor: Celtics interested in Knicks’ Alec Burks

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via With New York trying to open up cap space, Boston could be a beneficiary. The Celtics and Knicks have a long history, but of late, their rivalry has played out more on the cap sheet rather than MSG or TD Garden. Last season, Boston lost Evan Fournier to New York in free agency. Then, after dealing Kemba Walker to Oklahoma City for Al Horford, Walker negotiated a buyout with the Thunder to join his hometown Knicks and Fournier, his former teammate with the Celtics. Now, paths could cross again up and down I-90. With the Knicks now...
