Johnson met with then-coach Mike D’Antoni, assistant general manager Allan Houston and owner James Dolan. “We all met and talked and they had a great presentation. It was impressive. You know what threw me off more than anything?” Johnson asked. “Obviously there was the money difference, but they said, ‘You needed a place in Westchester and you needed a place in the city.’ They said you would roughly spend like $5 million. “I was like, ‘aw, no,’ as opposed to being in Atlanta where I was already established with a solid team that was getting better every year.

The Knicks will have plenty of cap space and one edge in coach Derek Fisher being a former teammate of Millsap’s with the Jazz in 2006-07. ”There’s always some potential here [in Atlanta] for sure,’’ Millsap told The Post before the Hawks swept the home-and-home Monday. “But I’m trying not to think about it, trying to put it as far in the back of my head as possible until the end of the year and see what happens.’’ Asked about playing in New York, Millsap said, “Anywhere could be an option. But my loyalty right now is in Atlanta. Free agency is free agency. When it happens, I’ll weigh my options and see where I’m at. But I’m happy in Atlanta right now.’’ New York Post

Aldridge responds: If you are asking if the Hawks would move to Seattle some day, David, I think not. I'm not naïve enough to think there's no chance the Hawks could leave Atlanta, but I think the current chances fall somewhere between microscopic and impossible. The league has no desire to leave Atlanta and there's corporate money flowing throughout the city and state, more than enough to put a local group together with a chief rainmaker who would keep the team in town. As for Bruce Levenson's motivations, well, we've discussed those at length over the past couple of months. NBA.com

On whether the Spurs did contact him, Bazemore confirmed there were some discussions between he and San Antonio over the summer. “Yeah,” said Bazemore, “they reached out to my agent, showed some interest, but I came here (Atlanta), so the second best thing obviously – same system.” I asked Bazemore why he chose Atlanta in the end, despite being pursued by a few teams when he was a free agent. “It was a good mix, an up-and-coming team, myself, I’m an up-and-coming player,” said Bazemore. “The system is good, how the ball moves, a lot of pick-and-rolls stuff, those play to my strengths; how they play defensively, how active they are defensively and I was in talks with them a lot.” ProjectSpurs.com

“I’m pretty upset about it but it’s part of the game,” Jenkins said. “I felt how I came back from injury, from August until now, I feel like I made leaps and bounds and shocked a lot of people in the way I came back. I feel like in the preseason, I might have earned my spot and had my option picked up. But it didn’t happen. I will continue to work hard, support the team and be positive.” Jenkins, who was selected with the 23rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft out of Vanderbilt, has been slowed by injury during his Hawks career. He averaged 6.1 points in 14.8 minutes as a rookie in 74 games. However, last season was an injury plagued year for the shooting guard. He missed substantial time that summer and training camp with a back injury. The 23-year old appeared in only 13 games last season when the injury re-occurred and eventually required season-ending surgery in February. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
