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 Trailblazers
Following a collision in a game against the Magic last week that forced Anthony out of that contest and the next one, he returned to the court and scored 23 points against the Pelicans on Monday. He followed that up on Thursday with an ineffective game against the Jazz, when he scored 12 points on 5-for-13 shooting.
Anthony continues to prove he still has gas in the tank, however. In 17 games with Portland, he's averaging 16.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, playing more than 31 minutes a game. He played a season-high 37:12 in the loss to Utah on Thursday. Anthony and the Blazers take on the Lakers at home Saturday night.
Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas Mavericks
Porzingis' string of consecutive double-doubles ended at five on Thursday, when he scored 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the Mavericks' win over the Spurs on Thursday. He's close to averaging a double-double on the season, coming in at 17.4 points and 9.6 rebounds a game this season. Dallas is in San Francisco Saturday night to face the Warriors.
Tim Hardaway Jr., Dallas Mavericks
Hardaway has been plagued by inconsistency in December with games of 29, 28, and 27 points sprinkled in with games of two, six and seven points, as well. He does have double-figures in points in his last four games though, with a 17-point effort against the Spurs on Thursday to help Dallas to a victory.
Courtney Lee, Dallas Mavericks
Lee has only played in three games this month, and while his game log is filled with "DNP-Coach's Decision," he was not even active for Thursday's game against San Antonio.
Danilo Gallinari, Oklahoma City Thunder
Gallinari caught a bit of a tough break this week. After three straight 20-plus-point performances, the Italian has missed the last three games with right ankle soreness. He came off the Thunder's injury report, but still hasn't been good enough to go. He'll get his next chance on Sunday when Oklahoma City travels to Toronto to take on the Raptors.
Emmanuel Mudiay, Utah Jazz
After three straight games in double-figures, Mudiay scored just four points in a win over the Blazers on Thursday. He's settling into his backup point guard role, though, and will be in Los Angeles on Saturday when Utah faces the Clippers.
DeAndre Jordan, Brooklyn Nets
After a 12-point, 20-rebound performance against the Hawks last Saturday, Jordan and the Nets faced the Knicks on Thursday, where he had just eight points and six boards. He continues to provide defense and rebounding for Brooklyn's second unit, and while his 21 minutes per game is his lowest since his second season in the league, Jordan's still generally very effective when he's on the floor.
Mario Hezonja, Portland Trail Blazers
Hezonja has missed the last three games and four of the previous five with a back injury. He's questionable for Saturday's game against the Lakers.
The small forward is averaging 4.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game.
Kyle O'Quinn, Philadelphia 76ers
O'Quinn played just one minute in the Sixers' loss to the Mavericks on Dec. 20, his only action since Dec. 15. He's been active, but hasn't played in any of the last four games.
Noah Vonleh, Minnesota Timberwolves
After appearing in just three of the Timberwolves' 12 games from Nov. 18-Dec.13, Vonleh has seen the floor in each of the last five, averaging 15.8 minutes per game. He hasn't exactly made the most of his opportunity, however, and is still looking for his first game of the season in which he cracks double-figures in points.
