Kristaps Porzingis hasn't talked to the Knicks since he skipped exit meetings earlier this month. It is unclear if NYK will have any staff with Porzingis while he is in Latvia this summer, as the club did last year. Last offseason, Knicks director of performance Mubarak Malik went to Porzingis' hometown of Liepaja, Latvia, in the offseason to provide a summer training program for the big man. Assistant coach Josh Longstaff then spent time with Porzingis in Liepaja in June to work on different facets of his game. Janis Porzingis, Kristaps' brother, said on Monday that Longstaff may still work with Porzingis again in Latvia. "Maybe Kristaps' personal coach [Longstaff] will visit KP's summer camp [in mid-June] in Liepaja as he did last year, but nothing more,'' Janis Porzingis said, according to a translation of a press conference in Latvia on Monday published by the New York Post.

Derrick Rose discussed his free agency while attending the Bulls playoff game in Chicago on Sunday. "I'm going into it with an open mind and will listen to everyone," Rose said, via the Chicago Tribune. "Last season sucked losing. But it was a great experience. I loved the guys that I played with and I loved the coaching staff. And who wouldn't like playing in New York? It was great." Rose underwent surgery in April to repair a meniscus injury and expects to be healthy enough to return to the court later this month. The Knicks have expressed interest in re-signing Rose this summer.

Kristaps Porzingis announces at a press conference in Latvia that he'll play for the Latvian national team this summer in the European Championships. The Knicks recommended last year that Porzingis not play with his national team. This year, it is unclear if they made any recommendation. Porzingis was frustrated by the lack of direction within the organization at the end of the season.

Porzingis wants to be Knick, but win most of all

Kristaps Porzingis said in an interview with a Latvian sports magazine that he wants to remain in New York for his whole career -- but he provided an important caveat.

The Bulls recognized a few former Bulls in attendance at Game 4. Other than the tandem of Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant, this current New York Knick got the loudest ovation.

It doesn't seem like the Knicks will meet face-to-face with Kristaps Porzingis before he heads home to Latvia. I wouldn't be surprised if someone from the Knicks - Steve Mills? Jeff Hornacek? - went to Latvia to talk to Porzingis in person and get on the same page.

Fox the next PG in the Big Apple?

With Derrick Rose likely to leave in free agency, the Knicks would do themselves a favor by drafting De'Aaron Fox. If he improves his jumper, he could be a star in the NBA.

Knicks lose draft lottery tiebreaker to Wolves

If neither team lands in the top three of the NBA draft lottery, the Timberwolves will draft ahead of the Knicks as determined by tiebreaker.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Minnesota won a tie breaker with the Knicks and finishes with the 6th spot in the draft order. The Knicks finish 7th. Both teams went 31-51 in the regular season.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

The NBA will break ties for picks in the 2017 draft Tuesday at 3 p.m. Eastern with a random drawing televised on NBA TV. While the Minnesota Timberwolves and New York Knicks will split combinations in the May 16 draft lottery, the tiebreaker will determine where they pick if neither is drawn in the lottery's top three. Ties will also be broken between the Chicago Bulls and Portland Trail Blazers for 15th and 16th, the Indiana Pacers and Milwaukee Bucks for 17th and 18th, the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies (whose pick goes to Portland) for 19th and 20th and the Cleveland Cavaliers (to Portland), LA Clippers, Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz for 23rd through 26th. The Raptors will get the better of the picks belonging to them and the Clippers, while the Orlando Magic get the weaker of the two.
