Former Knick Charles Oakley's trial date stemming from his February incident at Madison Square Garden is scheduled for August 4, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.
Oakley recently told the USA Today For The Win podcast that James Dolan should have been suspended for his actions in the incident that resulted in the former forward being ejected from the Garden.
Oakley still faces charges of harassment, trespassing and assault after allegedly yelling insults at Knicks owner Dolan. He was banned from MSG for a short stint before Dolan and Oakley both met with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.
"The meeting we went to before the All-Star break, everybody was like, 'OK, we're going to put the helping hand in,'" Oakley said. "They put the hand in, but they didn't do anything about the issue, what's going on. I'm still fighting it - three charges. I like my team, I like myself, and I know I didn't do anything wrong. We're going to fight it.
"It hurt to see my mother really hurt behind that. She's been really stressed out. They know I'm not the type of guy they tried to plant me as. I don't think the commissioner took a good approach toward this. I think (Dolan) should have been fined or suspended, a month or ten games. (Silver) fined the owner of the Houston Rockets $100,000 for walking up to the official."
Oakley is still expected to play in the new basketball summer league called BIG3 -- founded by Ice Cube.
