  • Knicks' Kemba Walker: Getting two-year deal from New York

    Walker is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Knicks worth between $8 and $9 million annually once he clears waivers, Ryan McDonough of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    The Thunder are working out terms of a buyout agreement with Walker, who is due $36.02 million in 2021-22 and holds a $37.65 million player option for 2021-22. Even if the Thunder aren't on the hook for the full amount, any team that would put a waiver claim in for Walker would have to absorb the money remaining on his contract. Walker is already proceeding as though he'll go unclaimed off waivers, thus allowing him to set in motion his move to the Knicks on a much more team-friendly deal. The four-time All-Star is expected to settle in as the team's starting point guard, stabilizing a position that had been one of the main weaknesses for New York in its otherwise surprising 41-31 season under first-year head coach Tom Thibodeau.

  • Knicks' Taj Gibson: Returning to New York

    Gibson and the Knicks agreed to terms Tuesday on a one-year, $2.7 million contract, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

    The 36-year-old, New York native will return to his hometown team for a third consecutive season after appearing in 45 games a year ago. Gibson averaged nearly 21 minutes per game -- probably more than the Knicks expected, though an injury to Mitchell Robinson (foot) was a contributing factor. If Robinson can stay healthier this season, Gibson could see his workload dwindle closer to 15 minutes per contest.

  • Knicks' Derrick Rose: To re-up with Knicks

    Rose and the Knicks agreed to terms Monday on a three-year, $43 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    It's a relatively hefty price to pay for Rose, who will turn 33 in October, but the guard proved his worth last season, averaging 14.7 points, 4.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 50 appearances for the Pistons and Knicks. Rose has struggled to find a permanent home since leaving Chicago in 2016, but he was an excellent fit with the Knicks in his second tour with the franchise. Over a 20-game stretch to close the regular season, Rose averaged 17.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 made threes in 28.3 minutes per game off the bench. While the Knicks fell to Atlanta in Round 1 of the playoffs, Rose went for 17, 26, 30 and 18 points over the first four games of the series, respectively.

  • Knicks' Evan Fournier: To play in Big Apple

    Fournier agreed Monday to a four-year, $78 million deal with the Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Fournier has been one of the league's more underrated wing options for the last several years. Since the start of 2016-17, Fournier has averaged 17.0 points on 45.1 percent shooting, 3.2 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 31.7 minutes per game. He figures to see a similar role with the Knicks, as it appears he'll be the team's starting shooting guard in 2021-22.

  • Knicks' Nerlens Noel: Returns to New York

    Noel is returning to the Knicks after agreeing a three-year, $32 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Noel signed a one-year, $5 millon deal with the Knicks before the 2020-21 season and ended up averaging a career-high 2.2 blocks per game. The 2013 first-round pick has found a comfortable role off of Tom Thibodeau's bench as a dominate defender. New York appears set on returning as many players as possible from the roster that led them to their first playoff appearance since 2013.

  • Knicks' Alec Burks: Agrees to stay in New York

    Burks agreed Monday to a three-year, $30 million deal to return to the Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Burks joined the Knicks last season where he played a nice sixth-man role. In 25.6 minutes per game, he averaged 12.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists while shooting 41.5 percent from beyond the arc. He has upside to see more minutes if Derrick Rose finds work elsewhere.

  • Knicks' Kevin Knox: Will play in Summer League

    Knox is expected to be on the Knicks Summer League roster per his request to be on the team, Ian Begley of SportsNet New Yorkreports.

    Knox reportedly requested to play for the Summer League team following his third season in the NBA. The forward had a rough season last year as he averaged 3.9 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 42 games. The 21-year-old likely wants to join the team to prove to the Knicks coaches that he deserves a role in the rotation for this upcoming season.

  • Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Has team option picked up

    Robinson (foot) had his team option picked up by the Knicks on Saturday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    No surprise here, as Robinson is one of the more promising young traditional centers in the NBA. In 27.5 minutes per game last year, he averaged 8.3 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.1 steals while shooting 65.3 percent from the field. He's coming off foot surgery and remains without a clear timetable for return.

  • Knicks' Norvel Pelle: Waived by Knicks

    Pelle was waived by the Knicks on Saturday, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com reports.

    Pelle appeared in 13 games last season between the Nets, Kings and Knicks. He played 84 total minutes and recorded 20 points, 19 rebounds, nine blocks, two assists and one steal. A best-case scenario for Pelle in free agency would be finding a backup center job.

  • Knicks' Aamir Simms: Joins Knicks

    Simms signed a contract with the Knicks on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    As a senior at Clemson, Simms averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 29.7 minutes. He was named to the ACC All-Second Team.

  • Knicks' Jericho Sims: Taken No. 58 by New York

    Sims was selected by the Knicks with the 58th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

    Sims was a four-year starter for the Texas Longhorns throughout his career. The 6-foot-10 center most recently averaged 9.2 points and 7.2 rebounds across 26 games played during the 2020-21 campaign. Sims will likely enter the season playing behind Mitchell Robinson, Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson.

  • Knicks' Miles McBride: Headed to Big Apple

    McBride was selected by the Knicks with the 36th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

    A relentless defender at the college level, McBride resembles another former West Virginia standout, Jevon Carter, in many ways. Like Carter, McBride is a bit undersized, but he makes up for it with toughness, quickness and athleticism. McBride averaged 15.9 points per game and shot 41.4 percent from three as a sophomore last season, but if he's going to stick in the NBA, it will be because of his defense.
