Willy Hernangomez: I didn’t expect the start of the season to be like this after what happened last season, being named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. There’s a lot of big men, now Kanter… I hope next week, when Joakim [Noah] comes back, things are clear, and let’s see if there’s any roster movement. They tell me that I have to be calm, that they have faith in me and that I’ll play. But I want to play now.
Knicks president Steve Mills said point guard Frank Ntilikina and Willy Hernangomez are keepers. He also dampened speculation about Jeff Hornacek’s immediate future, saying he’s not being judged by a won-loss record, though the Brooklyn victory was a sign the coach was on the right track. “Jeff, Scott [Perry] and I are in this together,” Mills said Sunday.

Sources said the Suns asked for a combo of Ntilikina and Hernangomez. Mills doesn’t want to part with either. Mills said Hornacek did the right thing in making Hernangomez “earn’’ his minutes. “This is part of Willy’s development,’’ Mills said. “He’s a guy who’s going to be with us the next three years and we have a lot of time to work with him, and he’s going to be part of who we are.”
Though Mills was GM and scouted Ntilikina in France, the final decision on drafting Ntilikina was Jackson’s, with his trusted adviser Clarence Gaines Jr., with the triangle partly in mind. “We’re committed to him and his development,’’ Mills said. “What we’re trying to do with this team, it centers around guys like Frank, Kristaps Porzingis, draft picks moving forward.”
