New York Knicks: How to build a championship roster

How do the New York Knicks start building a championship caliber roster? While it might seem crazy to talk about the New York Knicks‘ championship aspirations – following their sixth straight season with a winning percentage lower than .400 – every rebuild starts somewhere. Remember, before the Warriors were the darlings of the NBA, they were the Warriors, […] New York Knicks: How to build a championship roster - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

New York Knicks Draft Profile: Washington forward Jaden McDaniels

Jaden McDaniels is a polarizing prospect with a ton of talent. With an up and down freshman year at Washington, do the New York Knicks have enough faith in their newly-hired development staff to take this risk? For the New York Knicks, with a new front office, sans current general manager Scott Perry, drafting a […] New York Knicks Draft Profile: Washington forward Jaden McDaniels - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

September mailbag, part one: Chris Paul, the Knicks’ draft philosophy & movies for the end of a world

Now with fortified vitamins and minerals. 1) How mad would you be if we traded first-round picks for CP3? — The only Knick with the Knack In 1996 a pitcher named Mark Clark led the Mets with 14 wins. The past two seasons, Jacob deGrom has won consecutive Cy Young awards, yet never led the team in wins, and in fact last year finished third. Did Clark lead in wins because he was that great? Did deGrom fail to because others were better? Nope. Skill and...

RJ Barrett gets no respect: All-Rookie Teams edition

R.J. Barrett stares at the final All-Rookie Team tallies with disdain. Or he’s looking at something happening on a basketball court. | Photo by Patrick Smith/ He don’t get no r-e-s-p-e-c-t. Rodney Dangerfield’s entire schtick might as well have been about RJ Barrett, because last year’s third overall pick was disrespected at every turn all season, culminating with his exclusion from both All-Rookie Teams. Before we begin, let’s acknowledge the consolation prize: Barrett received the most votes of any of the rookies who didn’t make either First or Second Team. Hooray! Just...

NY Knicks: Projecting the roster with Chris Paul and Fred VanVleet

If we believe the rumors, what would a Knicks lineup look like with Chris Paul and Fred VanVleet? While the New York Knicks haven’t played since mid-March, they still appear regularly in the NBA rumor mill. The latest has the team working on an offer to acquire future Hall-of-Famer Chris Paul, while also creating enough […] NY Knicks: Projecting the roster with Chris Paul and Fred VanVleet - Daily Knicks - Daily Knicks - A New York Knicks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The 2020 NBA Draft is set for Nov. 18, and other draft news

Photo by Steven Freeman/NBAE via Workout videos will be produced! After months of conjecture, negotiations and delay, the date for the 2020 NBA Draft has officially been set as November 18. That’s right, kiddies: We still have two more months before we get to find out who our Knicks will take with the No. 8 pick (and the No. 27 pick, and No. 36 pick). But what about the Draft Combine and team interviews/workouts? The NBA has a plan for that, according to Shams Charania, and it’s suitably weird enough for this extremely weird year. NBA will run predraft process and distribute to...

5 big-money players who could be available after getting eliminated from the playoffs

Should the Knicks try to trade for one of these fellas? It’s a question, that’s for sure. | Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Knicks should only consider trading for some of these guys, but they’ll inevitably be linked to most. The teams that have already been eliminated from the playoffs must now evaluate their rosters, and, like it or not, the Knicks will surely be linked to a number of the major names that might become available, including Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and Victor Oladipo. Let’s explore which of these six well-known lads with large contracts the...

REPORT: The Knicks are preparing a trade offer for Chris Paul

REPORT: The Knicks are preparing a trade offer for Chris Paul

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ It doesn’t include much value, though. The Knicks undeniably have a massive hole at the point guard position, and Chris Paul is undeniably one of the greatest point guards of all time. Sadly, CP3 is also 35 years old and set to earn more than $40 million in each of the next two seasons. He might be the missing piece for some team, but the Knicks aren’t missing one piece — they’re missing most of the puzzle. That might not matter to team president Leon Rose, however. Last season, when he was still working as Paul’s agent, Rose tried to convince...

Know The Prospect: Kira Lewis Jr.

Know The Prospect: Kira Lewis Jr.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The speedy point guard may be more a question of when than why. So you’re looking for a point guard. Say there’s one out there who can shoot from deep, is speedy and athletic, has some size, gets to the rim, stalks passing lanes, and even rebounds well. Most of the point guards projected to go in the top half of the lottery can’t make those claims. Yet one who can, Kira Lewis Jr., is pegged by draftniks as going late in the lottery to late in the first round, behind four or five other point guards. The Knicks have the 27th pick whenever the draft...
