David Fizdale revealed in a radio interview that DeAndre Jordan wanted to stay a Knick when presented a buyout offer following the trade deadline.
Many at the time believed that Jordan remaining in New York, rather than being given the opportunity to join a contender via buyout, was largely the Knicks' decision, making this a surprising revelation. It's unclear if Jordan will feel the same way as a free agent, but if he does return to New York in the offseason, it will only complicate star rookie Mitchell Robinson's outlook heading into next season.

DeAndre Jordan picked up his seventh straight DNP-CD on Wednesday night, ending his season with averages of 11.0 points, 13.1 rebounds, a career-high 2.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.1 blocks with a .641 mark from the field and a career-high .705 from the free throw line.
Jordan showed two new wrinkles to his game this season: increased playmaking chops (particularly with the Knicks) and vastly improved free throw shooting. His playing time was cut in New York – by the end of the season he was a 20-minute guy after getting 31.1 mpg with Dallas – but Jordan still provided the rebounds and field goal percentage while also managing to increase his blocks. The big man heads to free agency and should still have multiple suitors even as he ages. The big jump in free throw percentage to quasi-respectable levels is going to be key to his value going forward. A 70.5 percent conversion rate still isn’t the best, but if that can stay moving forward then you won’t necessarily be locked into a punt build by taking DJ. Andre Drummond’s jump and subsequent return to normalcy serves as your cautionary tale there. Jordan finished the year as a top-60/65 player in 8/9-cat leagues and was a top-65/80 player in total value because of a five-game absence for a sprained left ankle and all the DNPs.

DeAndre Jordan didn't leave the bench in Saturday's tilt with the Heat.
It's surprising that Jordan lasted this long in the rotation, but we may have seen his last appearance in a Knicks uniform. It's been said that the organization wants him to help recruit old friend Kevin Durant to New York this summer so they likely made this move with his blessing. You might want to give it one more game just in case David Fizdale changes his mind but DJ looks safe to drop.

DeAndre Jordan played only 20 minutes on Thursday night, scoring three points (on 3-of-4 from the line) with seven rebounds and four assists.
The Knicks got obliterated and Mitchell Robinson was racking up meaningless stats, so Jordan wasn't needed for much tonight. His fluctuating and often low minute totals make him a disappointing option knowing what he can produce in real playing time, but Jordan's growth as a playmaker should not be going unnoticed. Hopefully it keeps up wherever he lands next season.

DeAndre Jordan found some extra juice in a game against his former team on Sunday, posting 20 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in a loss to the Clippers.
Jordan tallied 34 minutes in this one, the most in his last seven games. He was also locked in from the field and free throw line, shooting 7-for-10 and 6-for-7 respectively. Jordan had gone three straight games before this one with 22 minutes or fewer and the Knicks have only two games this week – Thursday and Saturday – so Jordan can be dropped if there's any streaming options available.
March 22, 2019, 10:39 pmMitchell Robinson - C - New York Knicks
Mitchell Robinson hit 7-of-10 from the field and both of his free throws on his way to 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in Friday’s 111-93 loss to the visiting Nuggets.
This is the second straight game with a double-double and three blocked shots for Robinson who is starting to get hot again. The only downside for H2H owners is the fact that the Knicks have two games next week so some tough decisions might have to be made. DeAndre Jordan added 11 rebounds, seven points and a block in 22 minutes as his workload continues to be reduced to allow Robinson more run.

DeAndre Jordan only logged 20 minutes on Monday, scoring six points with six rebounds, three assists and a block.
He went 0-for-2 from the floor, but 6-for-6 at the line which is something no one would have predicted. Jordan's minutes cratered tonight because of the game turning into a blowout and coach Fizdale playing everyone on the active roster. He's worth holding onto for now as the Knicks have three more games, but the lines will be inconsistent.
March 17, 2019, 4:02 pmDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan had a diverse line of 15 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block in Sunday's home win over the Lakers.
Jordan also went 6-of-10 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. He's going to set a career-high from the charity stripe this year and has also emerged as a respectable passer in New York, averaging 2.6 dimes a night in his short stint with the Knicks. We'll see if that keeps up next season, wherever he lands. There doesn't look to be a shutdown in sight so Jordan should keep on keeping on for the rest of the year.

DeAndre Jordan played well in Friday's 83-109 loss to the Spurs as he flirted with a triple-double, dropping 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting with 11 rebounds and nine assists.
Jordan put a mixed bag considering he failed to record a steal or a block in this one. His defensive numbers have seen a downturn lately with him averaging just 0.8 blocks and 0.2 steals per game over his last five. That said, Jordan has still managed to be a top-70 value over the last two weeks. Mitchell Robinson was mildly disappointing with two points (0-of-3 shooting), 10 rebounds and two blocks.
March 12, 2019, 9:54 pmDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan grabbed 16 boards to go with 12 points and five assists in 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Pacers.
It's the most minutes Jordan has played on the Knicks, and it's largely due to Mitchell Robinson's five fouls tonight compared to Jordan's zero. While it's nice to see a classic DeAndre Jordan game, don't count on this workload happening again this season.
March 10, 2019, 11:27 pmDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan did not play well against the Wolves on Sunday, as he had just two points and five rebounds on 1-of-8 shooting.
His minutes were likely limited due to how well Mitchell Robinson was playing as opposed to how bad he was playing. Jordan and Robinson are the top-two fantasy options in New York despite fighting for minutes with one another.
March 9, 2019, 3:17 pmDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan was up to the usual on Saturday afternoon, going 6-of-9 from the field and 2-of-2 at the line en route to 14 points, 15 rebounds and a block in 26 minutes against the Kings.
Jordan has looked good since returning from his ankle sprain, and even if he's capped at around 25 mpg that's enough for him to chip in hefty double-doubles and a block or two. Mitchell Robinson put up eight points, nine boards, a steal and three blocks in 22 minutes off the bench and the Knicks' centers have settled into a nice fantasy situation.
March 7, 2019, 12:47 amDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan (sprained left ankle) returned from a five-game absence on Wednesday night and wasted no time in getting back to business, posting 17 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and two blocks while going 7-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line in 25 minutes.
Fantasy owners will also be happy to know that Mitchell Robinson was unaffected with eight points, eight rebounds, two steals and four blocks in 22 minutes. Jordan won't remain this productive in this type of workload, but it was good to see him hit the ground running in his first game back. Get him in your fantasy lineups.
