    The Knicks waived second-year guard Allonzo Trier on Friday.

    The product out of Arizona was let go in order to make room for Theo Pinson. Trier saw his role reduced during his second season with the Knicks, but he has proven to be a decent penetrator at the NBA level. He has a fair chance to get picked up by another team seeking a scoring guard. His pending restricted free agency was probably weighing on the Knicks as they often seek to keep cap room available to chase after all-star level free agents.

    The Knicks have waived two-way player Kadeem Allen in order to sign Jared Harper to a two-way contract after claiming him off of free agency waivers on Thursday.

    Harper played three years in college for Auburn before going undrafted in 2019. He played in three games with the Suns so far and is off the fantasy radar for now.

    The Knicks have received permission to interview Jason Kidd for their head coaching job, per Marc Stein.

    Mike Brown is another name in the rumor mill lately as the Knicks try to sort out their future. Kidd had a big fan in Giannis Antetokounmpo when he led the Bucks, which may be a point in his favor as the Knicks try to find a voice that can connect with and guide a young roster, though Kidd's tactical decisions left a ton to be desired. New York is expected to interview up to 10 candidates and so far they're covering plenty of bases, including a big name like Kidd.

    Current Mavs assistant coach Jamahl Mosley has received permission to interview for the Knicks vacancy at head coach, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Newly-minted Knicks president Leon Rose is seemingly trying to exhaust all of his options in terms of filling the Knicks head coaching position. And it's hard to blame him, as the Knicks are the midst of the worst stretch in franchise history and have had a number of flops recently as far as head coaching hirings are concerned. Tom Thibodeau is widely thought to be in the driver's seat for the job, but Rose seems to want to interview as many candidates as possible and make a calculated decision. Only time will tell, and there are bigger fish to fry at the moment.

    Ian Begley of SNY.tv is reporting that the Knicks plan to interview 8-10 candidates for their head coaching job.

    It was previously reported today that Sixers assistant Ime Udoka and Magic assistant Pat Delany are among the candidates that the Knicks are expected to interview. The organization will likely take their time in trying to find the right candidate for the job so don't expect a decision to be made anytime soon.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Knicks plan to interview Pat Delany for their head coaching position.

    Delany has previously worked with the Heat organization for 11 seasons in a variety of roles. He served as a video intern, video coordinator and an advanced scout with Miami. He has also been the head coach of a G League team prior to joining the Magic staff in 2018-19. The Knicks will likely take their time to find the right person for the job. Continue to monitor reports over the coming months to find out who the organization decides to go with under their new regime.

    According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Knicks will interview Sixers assistant coach, Ime Udoka, for their head coaching job.

    All signs point to the fact that the Knicks will not have Mike Miller return as head coach to start the 2020-21 season. Several coaches have been named as candidates but we will have to wait and see who the franchise decides to move forward with. Udoka had previously been an assistant with the Spurs for seven years prior to joining the Sixers staff this season.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Part of the Knicks' off-season thinking is to shape the roster around RJ Barrett, and it unclear where Julius Randle will fit in those plans.

    Barrett and Randle have similar offensive styles, as they typically have an advantage relying upon their strength to attack the basket, but neither has a component deep ball at this stage in their careers. As Barrett is the younger option it makes sense that the Knicks want to sign shooters to give him more space to operate with. Randle's lousy percentages and turnovers has made for a disappointing season with the Knicks thus far, and Barrett will also need to make some strides in the shooting department to become a 12-team asset. Randle is under contract for next season is owed at least $4,000,000 in 2021-22.

    The Knicks reopened their practice facility for voluntary workouts on Friday.

    Another step in the right direction for the NBA's return to action at the end of July. It's still unclear if the Knicks will even be involved in whatever plan is agreed upon, but it is good to learn that the players can now access their facilities in New York. Only five team facilities have not opened up in some capacity at this point.

    According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks and newly minted team president Leon Rose seem to be in good shape if their preference is to hire Tom Thibodeau and move on from current head coach Mike Miller.

    Thibodeau, who has not coached since he was fired by the T-Wolves midway through last season, seems likely to be a sought-after commodity this offseason. The Nets are known to be looking for the right fit at head coach to guide their championship push with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in the fold and the Rockets' Mike D'Antoni will also be available for interviews this offseason, barring an extension with the Rockets. The Knicks would like to avoid question marks as far as the coaching staff is concerned so they can focus on building a contending roster. Only time will tell if Rose believes that Thibodeau is the man for the job.

    Scott Perry will remain in place as the Knicks GM under President Leon Rose.

    Perry is on a one year deal and has a good relationship with Rose. They look forward to rebuilding the Knicks together, but the one year deal may put pressure on Perry to show improvements immediately, which could be detrimental to a long-term rebuild.

    Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that the NBA will find practice facilities to accommodate the Knicks and Nets players if they are unable to access their facilities in the New York area.

    This plan would also cover teams in other COVID-19 hotspots across the country. The players are scattered well beyond the confines of New York and could wind up having individual sessions in other NBA team's facilities. To be clear, this is a baby step in the reopening process, and the entire situation remains as fluid as ever. Nonetheless, it's good to see the league pursuing the resumption of limited activities.

    According to sources close to Leon Rose, one of the team presidents biggest regrets is not getting a closer look at Kevin Knox and how he fits in the team's future.

    Kevin Knox is the black sheep in this franchise. Last year's lottery pick who disappointed in his rookie season, and watched the team load up on forwards in the offseason. He spent much of this year without a role, and his trade value is virtually gone at this point because of it. If the Knicks can't find room for him on the roster and the team decides to keep him, some G-League seasoning would be best for everyone.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    According to Ian Begley of SNY.tv, the Knicks are no longer interested in trading Frank Ntilikina after the improvement that he showed in 2019-20.

    Frankie Smokes has disappointed since the Knicks spent a top-10 pick on him back in 2017 and the team was looking to trade him until his improved play this season. Although he still has a ways to go to become a reliable shooter in the league (.393 FG shooting in 2019-20), Ntilikina notched career highs in all of his percentages. His most notable jump came at the free throw line as he increased his career numbers by nearly six percentage points while seeing a slight uptick in volume.
