REPORT: Knicks letting other teams know they’re willing to take on bad contracts in trades

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Stock up on assets, baby! The New York Knicks probably won’t have much time to contemplate their free agency moves this year — hell, the best players might be signing under-the-table deals already. There might be some moves to make on the trade market, though we fans can’t be sure if the front office wants to acquire assets for the future or sign a bevy of mediocre vets in yet another foolish attempt to contend immediately. SNY’s Ian Begley may have a clue about Leon Rose’s direction. According to his sources, the Knicks are letting it be known...

October P&T mailbag, part one: trading rosters & why bad drafts can be good

Photo by Sam Forencich/NBAE via For Halloween, let’s try on a different team. First things first: I was so focused on getting this mailbag done and published I didn’t see that Alex Wolfe literally just published a piece about players purportedly already lining up contracts with teams long before free agency begins. He includes an insightful series of names and numbers that Bobby Marks lists which are especially relevant to the Knicks, so check Alex’s piece out first. Then circle back here for some lemonade and slow-churn conjecture. 1) If you could switch the Knicks’ roster...

RUMOR: Some NBA players are already being offered contracts

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Knicks have a lot of potential money to spend, so this could be relevant The draft still isn’t for another month, free agency still (presumably) isn’t until shortly after that, and the NBA and NBPA still haven’t even agreed to a cap figure for next season yet. And yet, rumors are swirling from multiple plugged-in NBA people that, even without fully knowing how much money there will be to spend, some NBA teams are already coming to deals with free agents. From Brian Windhorst and Bobby Marks of ESPN, via NBA Sports: Windhorst: I have...

Danilo Gallinari talks his impending free agency, praises new Knicks boss Leon Rose

Photo by Garrett Ellwood/NBAE via Trying to get the pipe dream? When our bleary off-season-eyes came into focus on a summer that never fully arrived, we sharpened our gaze on Danilo Gallinari. We saw that old rooster shirsey in the back of the closet, folded up nice and pleasant, and thought, yes, this does spark joy. That all came crashing down this week when Danilo implied that he would be seeking a title contender on his next contract. No longer a spring chicken, and with the prospect of big money not seeming all that appetizing, the Knicks will struggle to leverage their gigantic...

NBA Rumors: Carmelo Anthony Could Be ‘Muscling Up’ To Return To Knicks Next Season

After the 2019-20 NBA season officially came to an end, veteran small forward Carmelo Anthony has immediately started making preparations for his upcoming free agency.

Report: 5 possible Knicks offseason trade targets

Photo by Kim Klement-Pool/ From Marc Berman to you, with me as the middleman. The Post’s Marc Berman explored five varying degrees of stars the Knicks could pursue in an offseason trade. Since there are no transcendent talents available in free agency this summer and it is a truth universally acknowledged that a Knicks team in possession of ample cap space must be in want of a blockbuster, speculation abounds that Leon Rose will use that space to trade for a star, even if their transcendence is mostly a fading glory in the rearview mirror. Sunsets are lovely, even if doomed. Exhibit A...
