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...
Carmelo Anthony, Portland Trail Blazers
In hist last three games with the Blazers, Anthony has had his issues from the floor. After suffering a knee injury against Orlando on Dec. 20, Anthony dropped 23 points in his first game back, but since then he's shot just 14-of-43 (32.6 percent) from the floor overall, and just 25 percent from beyond the arc.
Anthony continues to rack up playing time for the Blazers, averaging close to 36 minutes a game, but the Blazers are currently on a four-game losing streak and currently find themselves on the outside looking in at the Western Conference playoff picture (holding the ninth seed at 14-20). Anthony and the Blazers take on the Knicks at the Garden on New Year's Day at 7:30 p.m.
Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks
Porzingis' string of consecutive double-doubles ended at five last week, and since that stretch, he's gone three straight games without recording a double-double. He's averaged 14 points and seven rebounds per game over the last three, and it's worth noting that he only played 26 minutes during the Mavs' blowout win over the Warriors on Saturday.
Overall, Porzingis is averaging 17.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per game this season with Dallas, and while his scoring average and shooting percentage (40.3) are both lower than what he posted in the previous two seasons before his injury, he's proven to be a strong pairing with rising superstar Luka Doncic.
Tim Hardaway Jr., Dallas Mavericks
After scoring 25 points against Golden State on Saturday, Hardaway was bitten by the injury bug in the early going on Dallas' matchup with the Lakers on Sunday. Hardaway played just six minutes before suffering a hamstring injury, which will keep him sidelined for the Mavs' Tuesday night matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Overall, Hardaway is averaging 13.7 points, while shooting a career-best 38.2 percent from the three-point line.
Courtney Lee, Dallas Mavericks
Lee continues to be a non-factor for Dallas, as he's been inactive for eight of the team's previous nine games. At this point, Lee's contract is more of a tradable asset that the Mavs' could look to include in any deal to improve their roster.
Danilo Gallinari, Oklahoma City Thunder
Following a string of three straight 20-point performances, Gallinari was sidelined for four games due to right ankle soreness. According to Thunder head coach Billy Donovan, Gallinari will return on Tuesday night against Dallas, though.
Gallinari has been a consistent presence with the Thunder during his first season in OKC. Overall, he's averaged 18.0 points and 5.7 rebounds, shooting 39.5 percent from three. He's scored 20-plus points in 11 games this season, and has only been held under 10 points just once, when he scored seven points against Denver.
Emmanuel Mudiay, Utah Jazz
Mudiay has locked down backup point guard duties for Utah, and though he's scored just 17 total points over the team's last three games, Utah is 3-0 during that stretch, and at 21-12, the Jazz currently hold the six seed in a very competitive Western Conference.
DeAndre Jordan, Brooklyn Nets
After a 12-point, 20-rebound performance against the Hawks last Saturday, Jordan has averaged 6.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game during the Nets' last three games. Brooklyn is 0-3 during that stretch, though, holding on to the seven seed in the East at 16-16.
Mario Hezonja, Portland Trail Blazers
Hezonja has missed four straight games for the Blazers due to a back injury. The small forward is averaging 4.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game, and has only scored in double figures three times this season.
Kyle O'Quinn, Philadelphia 76ers
O'Quinn hasn't been much of a factor at all for the Sixers this season, but he did get the start in Philly's New Year's Eve loss to the Pacers as Joel Embiid missed the game with a sore knee. In 25 minutes, O'Quinn scored four points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
Noah Vonleh, Minnesota Timberwolves
Vonleh's season has been very up-and-down for Minnesota. After seemingly dropping out of the team's rotation, the forward averaged 17 minutes per game during a six-game stretch starting on Dec. 18. A glute injury kept him out of the Wolves' win over Brooklyn on Monday, and he is questionable to play in Wednesday's game at Milwaukee.
