The Knicks have reshaped their roster over the last year and change, saying goodbye to some familiar faces (some beloved, some not) in the process. We'll take a look at how some of those former Knicks are performing with their new teams as the 2019-20 NBA season is underway...


Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

Porzingis is still a big-time contributor for the Mavericks alongside Luka Doncic, but he's continuing to shoot at a poor clip. In three games this week, the 7-foot-3 Latvia native shot just 37.8 percent from the floor, and 35.3 percent from downtown.

The big man scored just seven points on Tuesday against the Pelicans, and was just 2-for-11 from the field. He rebounded nicely on Wednesday with 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting, but his inconsistency has been worth noting.

The Mavericks host the Kings on Sunday.

With the team's record dropping to 4-18 after an embarrassing 37-point home loss to the Denver Nuggets, it was utterly predictable when the New York Knicks fired head coach David Fizdale in a Friday afternoon news dump. 

Just as predictable was the resounding chorus that cropped up in wake of the move, declaring that Fizdale was not the problem in New York. 

Unquestionably, that is true.

Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

The Mavs went 2-1 this week, but Porzingis' shooting woes have started to become a storyline. Since dropping 23 points against the Rockets last Sunday, the Latvia native has had two straight sub-par games. In a 15-point loss to the Clippers, Porzingis was just 4-of-13 from the floor, and he followed that up with an 0-for-8 performance on Friday night against the Suns. The game marked the first time this season that he was held without a field goal, as he totaled just two points in 33 minutes.

The Mavs are back on the court on Sunday agianst the Lakers.

Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

Since losing to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 14, the Mavericks have won four straight games, with Porzingis playing an integral part. The former Knicks No. 4 overall pick recorded double-doubles in the first three of those games and had 17 points and seven rebounds in a blowout win over the Cavaliers on Friday.

Porzingis is averaging 18.1 points and 8.9 rebounds in 14 games this season.

Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

All eyes were on The Garden on Thursday, when Porzingis made his much-anticipated return to New York after requesting a trade from the Knicks in January. He was booed throughout the game, but finished with a double-double, scoring 20 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

Porzingis is averaging 18.5 points per game along with 8.2 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in his first season with the Mavericks.

Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

Porzingis saw his former team come to his new home grounds this past Thursday night in what turned out to be a thrilling matchup. Porzingis scored 28 points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked five shots, but fouled out late in the fourth quarter. Not having their big man out on the floor hurt the Mavs badly, as they fell to the Knicks 106-102 in what was a very close game throughout.

Porzingis missed Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, but the Mavericks were still able to pull out a win without him. Porzingis will make his long-awaited return to New York this Thursday to face the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. He's averaging 20.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game in his first season with Dallas.

The No. 4 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft has seen his Mavericks career get off to a strong start. The Latvia native has averaged 22.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in four games. His best game of the the early season came on Sunday against Portland, when Porzingis scored 32 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and added five assists.

He did have an off night his last time out though, scoring just 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks

The No. 4 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft made his debut for the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night after being traded from the Knicks on January 31, 2019 and missing all of the 2018-19 NBA season while recovering from an ACL injury. On July 12, 2019, Porzingis agreed to a five-year, $158 million max contract with Dallas.

Frank Ntilikina learned something important about himself during France's run to the bronze medal in the FIBA World Cup:

"How good I can be playing basketball," the guard said on Wednesday. "It's simple on both sides of the court. A competition like that brought me a lot of confidence."

If Ntilikina can play with the kind of confidence/competence in New York that he showed with the French National Team last month, maybe he earns a spot in David Fizdale's rotation.

Emmanuel Mudiay has faith in the Knicks. 

The 22-year-old guard may no longer be on the team, agreeing to a one-year deal with the Utah Jazz this summer, but Mudiay believes New York should be excited about some of the pieces the organization has, starting with head coach David Fizdale. 

"This year wasn't the year to judge him for his work, but he's taken teams to the playoffs before," he told Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News. "So I think it's only a matter of time. If they keep putting the right people around him, then he'll flourish."

Prior to the start of NBA free agency, the Knicks elected to part ways with a handful of players on last year's team. 

They declined to extend qualifying offers to Emmanuel Mudiay and Luke Kornet while Noah Vonleh entered free agency. All three of those players signed with new teams on Tuesday. 

Mudiay signed a one-year deal with the Utah Jazz, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Vonleh agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, per The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski while Kornet signed a two-year deal with the Chicago Bulls, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

A few young Knicks and coaches plan to attend the next two NBA Finals games. 

Mitchell Robinson plans to attend Game 5 of Raptors-Warriors with assistant coach Pat Sullivan, per SNY sources. And Kevin Knox, Kadeem Allen, and Allonzo Trier plan to attend Game 4 of the Finals on Friday night, a source confirmed to SNY. 

Last year, David Fizdale brought Emmanuel Mudiay, Damyean Dotson, and Frank Ntilikina to a Celtics-Cavs playoff game. He wanted to show them the atmosphere of playoff basketball. After the season, he said he intended to do the same with the young Knicks from the 2018-19 team.

When the Knicks hosted Dwyane Wade for his final game in Madison Square Garden a couple weeks ago, Emmanuel Mudiay tried to swap his jersey with the Heat legend. However, Wade said he was already giving his white and crimson threads away, leaving Mudiay without a momento from the future Hall of Famer. 

But, in typical Wade fashion, Mudiay's request didn't go unnoticed. 

Wade sent Mudiay a jersey and signed it for the young point guard. He showed his gratitude to No. 3...

One of the worst seasons in New York Knicks history is over. A 17-65 record will be tough to swallow, but arguably the franchise's biggest offseason ever is fast approaching. This roster made up of raw talent and NBA vagabonds could look anywhere from completely different to mostly the same this time next year. Here's how each key player fared this season, and whether they should stay or go:

Kevin Knox

Barring an Anthony Davis trade, Knox is likely to remain a Knick, and fans should be cautiously optimistic about his future. Although his numbers as a whole were shoddy, there's a lot that is easily fixable, such as taking off a step too early or knowing when to go to the floater vs. attacking the defender's body. He had some solid stretches scattered across an underwhelming season: 43 percent three-point shooting in March, for example. The goal is for him to be a complete player, but we've yet to see tangible improvements much of anywhere,. That's okay, he's very young, and clearly filled with talent.

Two teams looking ahead to next year will meet when the Washington Wizards visit the New York Knicks on Sunday night.

The Knicks lost for the eighth time in their last nine games when they were beaten 120-96 in Houston on Friday night as James Harden had 26 points, eight assists and eight rebounds in just 29 minutes.

New York was without point guard Emmanuel Mudiay (sore left shoulder), so Mario Hezonja made his first start at the position. He finished with his first career triple-double -- 16 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists in an emergency role.

The Knicks' blockbuster trade of Kristaps Porzingis cleared the franchise enough salary cap space to pursue two max free agents this summer. Presumably, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are going to be two targets.

But with the roster head coach David Fizdale has now, he is trying to work on his players' versatility, because the Knicks could soon have an abundance of players at one position.

"That I'm trying to do with all of them is make them, to a certain extent, positionless,'' Fizdale said, according to the New York Post's Marc Berman. "Where it doesn't matter who they're out there with. That their skill set applies to whatever position they're playing. That's kind of how we're looking at it going forward."

Knicks PG Frank Ntilikina has finally been cleared to practice, and it couldn't have came at a better time. 

According to the Daily News' Stefan Bondy, the 20-year-old former first rounder will be practicing with G-League Westchester on Tuesday as the Knicks are traveling back from Toronto following a 128-92 blowout on Monday night. Ntilikina has been sidelined for weeks with a groin injury, but if everything goes well at practice, he could be suiting up against the Jazz at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night. 

That would be the best case scenario for Ntilikina, who needs these last 11 games of the season to prove he is still worth it to the Knicks. It doesn't look good for Ntilikina to stay in orange and blue next season, especially with new point guard Dennis Smith Jr. coming over from Dallas in the Kristaps Porzingis trade. The Knicks also have Allonzo Trier, Emmanuel Mudiay and Damyean Doston all under contract for 2019.

The Knicks will be without Dennis Smith Jr. for Friday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. 

The 21-year-old point guard was added to the injury report on Thursday with a sore lower back but there is no indication that the injury is serious. 

Emmanuel Mudiay is expected to get the start at point guard in place of Smith while Kadeem Allen was recalled from the G-League to join the team in San Antonio.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Bojan Bogdanovic scored 24 points and Darren Collison made two free throws 19.5 seconds left to help the Indiana Pacers slip past the New York Knicks 103-98 on Tuesday night.

Indiana snapped its two-game losing streak and remained tied with Philadelphia for the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. Collison finished with 16 points.

New York lost its seventh straight despite getting 21 points from Emmanuel Mudiay and 18 from Damyean Dotson. The Knicks also have lost six straight in the series.

Since Dennis Smith Jr. has joined the Knicks, Frank Ntilikina has become even more of an afterthought. Head coach David Fizdale has tasked Smith with being a vocal leader for the squad despite this only being his sophomore season, and Emmanuel Mudiay has been relieving him off the bench. 

Ntilikina has been trying to work back from a groin injury, but he still isn't expected to make an impact at point guard once he returns. Fizdale wants to use him more as a wing player, and has even flirted with the idea of him playing power forward as well. And when Jason Kidd was brought in down in Phoenix by Fizdale, only Smith and Mudiay were close to his teachings with Ntilikina looking on, fortifying the notion that he won't be the floor general anytime soon.

But, with 17 games left on the Knicks' schedule, Ntilikina's health is reeling at the wrong time. And that isn't good if their reported plan involving the former first-rounder is true.

Although Knicks fans may have had their trade fill following the Kristaps Porzingis blockbuster, there's still some time to go until the trade deadline with several possible directions for New York.

Here are a few of the directions they can go in by Thursday afternoon.

The Knicks' return in the Kristaps Porzingis trade didn't feel like the best package they could have gotten for the 7-foot-3 All-Star. DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews are expiring contracts that New York may want to trade or waive outright, and the two future first-rounders will come in a couple years. 

So the only true return that will impact the Knicks immediately will be 21-year-old PG Dennis Smith Jr., who the Mavericks have been shopping prior to the Feb. 7 trade deadline.

Many Knicks fans will remember Smith being a top candidate to take two years ago with the eighth overall pick, but Phil Jackson's regime decided to go with Frank Ntilikina instead. Smith was taken with the ninth overall pick by Dallas right after Ntilikina.

The Knicks' roster is in a limbo after the Kristaps Porzingis trade.

Upon Thursday's blockbuster trade with the Mavericks that also sent Tim Hardaway Jr. Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas, the players the Knicks received -- Dennis Smith Jr.DeAndre Jordan and Wes Matthews -- won't be cleared and in New York in time for Friday's game against the Celtics.

And considering Emmanuel Mudiay is dealing with a shoulder injury and Frank Ntilikina suffered a groin injury, who actually will play for the Knicks?

1) The main storyline was Doncic's first taste of the Garden, and it didn't begin the way he wanted it to with an airball from three.

Doncic would finished with 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting along with eight boards and five assists in a pedestrian night for the NBA Rookie of the Year hopeful.

Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina could miss 1-2 weeks after he strained his groin in Sunday's loss to the Miami Heat.

Ntilikina, who started New York's last two games at point guard after Emmanuel Mudiay suffered a shoulder injury, was limited to 14:50 on Sunday, scoring just six points on 3-of-6 shooting.

The 20-year-old Ntilikina did not travel with the team to Charlotte for Monday's game against the Hornets, and the Knicks recalled Kadeem Allen from G-League Westchester. Trey Burke is expected to start at point guard.

Knicks PG Trey Burke -- a pending free agent -- said in early-December that he wanted to re-sign with the Knicks

"I know how the business goes and if that is not an option, you're always auditioning for other teams. But personally, on record, I want to be here in New York City," Burke said. "You just never know, man. You never know in this league. Try not to put all your eggs in one basket because it is a business at the end of the day."

After making that statement, Burke fell out of the Knicks' rotation for most of December, but he has been getting some burn lately with Emmanuel Mudiay hurt -- including playing 33 minutes (and scoring 25 points) against the Celtics on Friday as the team potentially showcases him for interested teams.

The Knicks' starting lineup Friday night had some confusion leading up to the game, as Emmanuel Mudiay's shoulder injury left a void at point guard. And head coach David Fizdale wouldn't name his replacement, waiting until starting lineups were announced instead. 

Well, it was Frank Ntilikina that got the start, and he had a great opportunity to impress Fizdale and the Knicks. But early foul trouble didn't help his cause. 

Ntilikina, who started for the seventh time this season, eventually fouled out and Fizdale knows that foul trouble hurt him getting into any sort of rhythm.

Ahead of the Knicks' matchup against the Nets on Friday, the team will be without their most productive point guard in Emmanuel Mudiay.

The team announced Mudiay suffered a left shoulder strain during the Knicks' contest against the Rockets on Jan. 23. An MRI confirmed the injury that will keep him out at least two weeks.

Mudiay has been the best of the three point guards on the Knicks' roster. He is averaging 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.9 assists over 37 games (32 games).

A few minutes earlier, Emmanuel Mudiay hit a 3-pointer with the shot clock running down to turn a two-point deficit into a one-point Knicks lead.

And with 0.4 seconds remaining, after Allonzo Trier was called for a go-ahead goaltend that gave the Washington Wizards a 101-100 lead, Mudiay was still confident in himself and his shot.

"I took that shot, so I had all confidence in that shot,'' Mudiay said, according to the New York Post's Marc Berman.

On top of that, he had a double-double with 15 rebounds and three assists.

DENVER --The Knicks (9-28) will try to derail the Nuggets and get their own season back on track. New York has lost seven straight and is dealing with some internal strife. The Knicks are coming off a blowout loss in Utah, a game in which the Jazz led by as many as 46, and forward Enes Kanter is unhappy with his role.

Kanter is a free agent at the end of this year and has come off the bench the last two games. According to Newsday, Kanter all but asked to be traded, adding to the upheaval.

Things to know about Wednesday's game

1) The Knicks made a big comeback in the second half, with rookie Kevin Knox putting them up by one with a thunderous transition dunk. But the Cavs got the lead back from a Rodney Hood floater, and would further it after the Knicks were forced to foul following a miss. The critical play of the game, though, came on an inbound following a timeout where Emmanuel Mudiay couldn't find a teammate to get the ball to in a three-point game. It ended the Knicks' chance at a comeback.

The returns are in. And unfortunately for two young Knicks, the reviews of their play is not all that positive. At least that's what a group of scouts and NBA personnel told the New York Post's Marc Berman.

"If the Knicks' last two lottery picks were stocks, they'd be plummeting."

That was the lede in a story published Thursday by Berman, and given the scouts and other NBA personnel he spoke with, it's not exactly an unfair characterization of what is in front of two players the Knicks have invested a good deal of effort in bringing along.

Emmanuel Mudiay is doing his best to show the New York Knicks that their point guard of the future is already on the roster.

Mudiay has been instrumental in the team's last two victories. He scored 15 of his season-high 27 points in the fourth quarter against New Orleans on Friday, then converted a pivotal transition dunk and free throw in a 103-98 road victory over Memphis on Sunday.

Mudiay will try to keep the hot hand going when the Knicks play at Detroit on Tuesday night. New York (7-14) has won three straight after a 4-14 start.
