The Knicks finally got something right -- it just involved a lot of losing.

The Nets have waived Lance Thomas, CJ Massinburg, C.J. Williams and Devin Cannady.
This was expected for Thomas as the Nets are already at the limit with 15 guaranteed contracts. They will have a spot open up once Wilson Chandler reaches the 5th game of his 25 game ban so there is a chance Thomas is brought back at that time. Massinburg, Williams and Cannady were all candidates for the open two-way roster spot but it seems the Nets will hold off from using it for now.

The Nets have signed Lance Thomas.
With Wilson Chandler suspended, Rodions Kurucs dealing with off the court issues and Kevin Durant sidelined the Nets needed to bring in a forward. They decided to go with Thomas over someone like Carmelo Anthony and he'll likely play a good number of minutes for the Nets until Chandler and Kurucs return.

Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that the Nets are seriously eyeing Lance Thomas.
Thomas was the longest-tenured Knick before brass elected not to re-sign him but there is a chance that he remains in New York. The Nets will be without Wilson Chandler to begin the season after he was suspended 25 games for testing positive for PED use, so they could use some forward depth.

As of right now, the Nets are "very unlikely" to sign Carmelo Anthony, according to a report from Shams Charania.
Brooklyn is more likely to sign players that they have worked out recently, with Charania naming Lance Thomas and C.J. Williams as possibilities. At least more people can complain about Melo being unsigned now.

The Knicks remain in touch with Lance Thomas, and the New York Post reported that Thomas is a "favorite" to take the team's last roster spot.
The Knicks waived Thomas for salary reasons but it's been said consistently that they'd be interested in bringing him back because of his attitude and mentorship abilities. If Thomas can't find a better deal on the open market, it would not be surprising to see him back in New York.

The Knicks have waived Lance Thomas.
It was expected that Thomas would be waived given that only $1 million of his $7.6 million salary was guaranteed, and previous reports have the Knicks hoping to bring Thomas back at a more affordable rate. The team admires his professionalism and leadership and would like him to mentor younger players. If he wants to return, there's no reason that he won't be back in New York.

Ian Begley is reporting that the Knicks are expected to waive Lance Thomas in hopes of re-signing him at a discounted price.
Thomas is due to make $7.6 million next season but only $1 million is guaranteed so this is the obvious move to free up more cap space. Thomas played 46 games for the Knicks last year with only 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 17.0 minutes but his, “leadership and professionalism is held in high regard in the organization and he is respected for his mentorship to younger players.”

Lance Thomas finished the season with a DNP-CD in Wednesday's blowout against Detroit.
Thomas, who for what it's worth, is New York's longest tenured player, and has probably overseen far more losing than any player should. He got on the floor for 46 games this year, and was outside the top-400 in value. He's not on the fantasy radar in any format.

Lance Thomas (personal) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons.
Thomas missed Tuesday's game. He isn't a factor in fantasy, but we hope all is well with him.

Lance Thomas (personal) will miss Tuesday's game against the Bulls.
The Knicks have been working on their silly season lineups since December so Thomas has been in and out of the rotation for most of the year. There's no need to monitor his status in fantasy.

Kevin Knox scored 13 points in Friday’s loss to the Rockets but struggled with his shot, hitting just 5-of-14 from the field and 2-of-7 from the line.
Knox added a trey, five rebounds and two turnovers in 31 minutes and his lack of peripheral stats combined with awful efficiency leaves him at an even top-300 value for the season so far in 9-cat. He’s only been marginally better since the break (top-250ish) and will have to work on his game a ton if he hopes to have a larger impact in real-life and in fantasy. Lance Thomas chipped in 10 points, a triple and four rebounds in 19 minutes.

Noah Vonleh sprained his right ankle and will not return to Friday’s game vs. the Spurs.
Lance Thomas and John Jenkins will get more minutes at the four but neither is an especially appealing add for fantasy.

The Knicks shuffled their starting lineup once again and Noah Vonleh will start on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Coach David Fizdale must be running out of tricks to keep us reporters on our toes so he went with the old switcheroo. Vonleh hasn’t been the best option of late in fantasy, however.

Emmanuel Mudiay and Lance Thomas will start on Friday vs. the Spurs.
Mudiay will be starting for Dennis Smith Jr. (sore back) while Lance Thomas will start for Noah Vonleh, who’ll head to the bench in this contest. Mudiay is a nice play in DFS if your lineup hasn’t locked.
