Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek was at a gym in Manhattan this week to watch a pickup game featuring Carmelo Anthony and other NBA players, per league sources. It's unclear if Hornacek was there to watch/support Anthony or to watch other players in the game but his presence is worth noting given the current situation between the Knicks and Anthony. The club would like to trade Anthony and Anthony would like to be moved but NYK hasn't found a suitable deal yet. Anthony has been working out with trainer Chris Brickley at the Lifetime Fitness gym in Manhattan this summer and playing pickup with several NBA players, including LeBron James and Kevin Durant, at the gym.

Without including Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks would have been hard pressed (to say the least) to come up with a package like Boston's for Kyrie‬ Irving. Irving had been telling friends that he was open to playing in New York.

In NBA.com's survey of 39 rookies, Dallas Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. was named most likely to win Rookie of the Year. This is sure to motivate Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina.

The Rockets will play the Knicks at MSG on Oct. 9 in the preseason. Just a guess: Carmelo Anthony will be playing for NYK that night.

The Knicks announced their preseason schedule:

Both the Knicks Jamel Artis and Xavier Rathan-Mayes have an Exhibit 10 in their contract. Each player would receive a $50K bonus if they are waived and spend 60 days with the Knicks G-League team. Unlike the protection for Nigel Hayes, the Exhibit 10 bonus doesn't impact the Knicks cap.

The contract for the Knicks Nigel Hayes has $50K protection. The Hayes money will hit NYK cap if waived and doesn't have an Exhibit 10.

Blake Griffin doesn't claim to have any insight into LeBron James' mindset, but he said on a recent podcast that he could see James signing with the Knicks before choosing the Lakers. "Honestly, I don't see him coming to L.A. period," Griffin said on the podcast, "View from the Cheap Seats." "Listen, again, I have no idea. I think something is brewing with him and his group of guys.... I could see [LeBron] going to New York before L.A," Griffin added. "I still think, when you go to the Garden, it's a completely different feeling. The energy, there seems like there's just a consistent buzz the entire game. … Even last year when you go play them, it's still there."

The Knicks announce that they've signed Jamel Artis, Nigel Hayes and Xavier Rathan-Mayes. All three likely have partial guarantees and are signed for 1 year.

Last year's Knicks named Carmelo Anthony 'Best Teammate' on NYK as part of the NBPA's 2017 Players Voice Awards.

The expectation last month was that the Knicks would leave one two-way deal open for training camp. If that's still the case, Jamel Artis, Nigel Hayes and Xavier Rathan-Mayes will be among those players competing for it. Once Artis and Hayes sign, the Knicks will have 18 players under contract, 14 of which are on guaranteed contracts. Teams can carry 20 players under contract in the offseason and 17 (including 2 two-way players) during the season.

Knicks president Steve Mills must be a hoops junkie. He's watched a few of Team Dyckman's games Nike Pro City, an NYC summer hoops tournament, recently.
