Ian Begley: One factor in decision to waive Kuzminskas over Ramon Sessions, as reported by @Adrian Wojnarowski, was due to the recent injury history of Jarrett Jack, per sources. The Knicks have to eat around $3 million to waive Kuzminskas— about 700K more than they would have if they waived Sessions.
Storyline: Mindaugas Kuzminskas Free Agency
Mindaugas Kuzminskas says he’ll have “a sleepless’’ night as he awaits the Knicks’ decision on who goes or stays. If the Knicks can’t make a trade, say getting a late first-rounder for backup center Kyle O’Quinn, the two likely candidates to be waived Sunday to make room for Joakim Noah’s return from drug suspension is either banished point guard Ramon Sessions or the exiled Kuzminskas.
In the second quarter Wednesday at Amway Center, Jeff Hornacek motioned to the bench. Point guard Ramon Sessions popped up, started taking off his warm-up top. It was a false alarm. A Knicks assistant told him to sit back down. Either Sessions misread Hornacek’s intentions or, as the veteran said, “Coach changed his mind.” “I’ve played my whole career, first time in my 11 years this has actually happened,” Sessions said in his first remarks on his demotion. “I’ve been around a while, been around different scenarios. It’s still early. It’s a long season. In the NBA, a lot of things can happen.’’
Previously, Jarrett Jack had been credited with organizing and calming the offense amid allegations the players didn’t know all the plays. It was implied Sessions, a penetrator, wasn’t working out in that area. Sessions doesn’t buy it. “I don’t think it’s something I fell short of,’’ Sessions said. “The more practices we got, the more games we played, it would get to that point. It wasn’t nothing I was lacking in that department.”
“Man, that’s just part of being a teammate,” he said. “Being in this business you’ve got so many things that are called upon you at different times. You’ve just got to be ready for them, try to execute them to the best of your ability. Whether it’s running this squad, whether it’s me and Ramon (Sessions) showing Frank the ropes, that’s something we were going to do anyway. I don’t think anybody had to call upon us to go over and do that. That’s in our nature. People did it for us. It’s just in the nature of the business, the nature of a teammate just to try to pass that knowledge down to somebody else.
Knicks veteran point guard Ramon Sessions is here as rookie Frank Ntilikina’s mentor and is already raising the stakes on the 19-year-old’s potential. “It’s funny,’’ Sessions said in his first remarks since signing with the Knicks. “It’s one of those things. I played with Johnny when he was younger. Kyrie when he was young. He’s got a lot of Kyrie tendencies. Not the most athletic guy but can handle the ball in tight spots. It’s still early on, but he definitely gives me that Kyrie feel when Kyrie was a rookie.
