Speak to a Knicks fan about their team and you will most likely hear them reminisce about the Pat Riley-era team of Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, Anthony Mason and John Starks. Or maybe the Jeff…

Luke Kornet has inked a deal with the Chicago Bulls for two years worth $4.5 million according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Kornet is another stretch big that will fit into the Bulls' system similar to how Lauri Markkanen does. He is a 36-percent shooter from beyond the arc in his career and shoots at will, so he should be a nice role player for an improved Bulls team.

Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting the Bulls have reached an agreement in principle for two years with free agent Luke Kornet.
Kornet will be able to stretch the floor as a nifty backup center for the Bulls. He averaged 1.5 3-pointers made per game in just 17 minutes per game for the Knicks last season. Kornet is a career 36 percent 3-point shooter.

According to Chris Haynes, the Knicks will not extend a qualifying offer to Luke Kornet.
Kornet will hit unrestricted free agency and will likely only return to the Knicks if they miss out on big-time free agents. He has had some bright spots with the Knicks over the past two seasons, so he could garner interest once he hits the open market as a bench stretch-big.

Luke Kornet started and played 28 minutes in Wednesday's season finale, scoring six points to go with two rebounds and 2 assists.
The UniKornet showed multiple times throughout the 18-19 campaign that he has a golden fantasy stat-set, having many games where he piled up cash-counters. The only problem was that Coach David Fizdale never felt comfortable letting him loose full-time, resulting in a mediocre top-190 value on the year. A path to playing time in New York doesn't seem to be getting any clearer with their eyes set on big prizes in free agency, dashing the hopes of anyone hoping for an expanded role heading into next season.

Luke Kornet double-doubled with 12 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two threes and a massive six blocks in Tuesday's road win against the Bulls.
Kornet has been a top-35 player over the past two weeks and proved his value again on Tuesday. Kornet saw 38 minutes tonight and should be in all lineups for the season finale against the Pistons.

Luke Kornet tallied 17 points, seven rebounds, a steal, four blocks and four 3-pointers in Sunday's 113-110 win over the Wizards.
Kornet logged 36 minutes, and nights like this make David Fizdale's rotations from the rest of the season all the more infuriating. We can't promise you that Kornet will play this much, let alone at all, over the last couple of games, but he shouldn't be on waivers given the upside and apparent starting role. Mitchell Robinson had 11 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in 38 minutes.

Henry Ellenson played 23 minutes off the bench and had 16 points, a triple, seven rebounds and two turnovers in Friday’s stomping at the hands of the Rockets.
Ellenson got a lot of his burn in garbage time since the Knicks were down 72-43 by halftime. Still, the Knicks are short-handed at just about every position so Ellenson has a chance to produce some low-end numbers if he can get consistent minutes in the 20s though it’s more likely he and Luke Kornet continue to trade good games. Kornet added six points (no 3s), five rebounds and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Luke Kornet came off the bench on Wednesday and scored six points on 2-of-6 shooting while adding three rebounds and a block.
The demotion is bothersome and he only logged 14 minutes, but was still able to tally a block and went 0-for-4 from distance which really put a cloud over his night. He's still worth holding if you need peripheral stats as he can produce a triple-one in limited minutes.

Luke Kornet led the Knicks in their 113-105 win over the Bulls with 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, an assist, five triples and three blocks.
It makes sense that the Knicks refused to give Kornet consistent playing time this season as they might have won too many games. With Kornet and Mitchell Robinson, the Knicks have two talented young players that mesh well together and have a chance at providing big fantasy value in the upcoming season. Kornet is worth grabbing to finish the year as coach Fizdale looks to have tightened up his rotations.

Luke Kornet put up an all-around stat line in Saturday's loss to the Heat with 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks, five 3s on 5-of-14 shooting in 36 minutes of action.
Kornet started with Mitchell Robinson tonight and judging by this game, they potentially have a nice inside and out pairing that coach David Fizdale can consider moving forward. Of course, the absence of DeAndre Jordan is a key factor to him getting a lot of burn tonight.

The Knicks have recalled Luke Kornet ahead of Thursday's game against the Raptors.
Kornet will provide depth off the bench for the Knicks and has the chance to earn a few extra minutes with Noah Vonleh's injury still lingering. As it stands currently, Kornet is far off the fantasy radar.

Luke Kornet returned to the rotation in Saturday's loss, logging 13 minutes and delivering four points, two rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Kornet likely only played because Noah Vonleh was sidelined with an injury. There's just too much inconsistency in his playing time to trust Kornet in fantasy.

Luke Kornet didn't leave the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Suns.
Kornet briefly reemerged in the rotation when DeAndre Jordan was out, but now that DJ's back it looks like Kornet can be returned to the waiver wire.
March 5, 2019, 12:36 amLuke KornetF/C, New York Knicks
Luke Kornet started on Monday and scored seven points on 2-of-6 shooting to go with three rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers.
Kornet started ahead of Lance Thomas today and if we're being honest with ourselves, he should be starting every game from here on out. Coach Fizdale has yanked Kornet all over the place and if he was given a consistent role he'd easily produce mid-round value with his unicorn stat set, we just can't rely on anything coach Fizdale does.
