Although former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni professed to love European players, sources told The Post he was against bringing in Spanish League point guard Pablo Prigioni the past few years. The Post reported in July the Knicks had Prigioni on their radar for four years. According to multiple sources, Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald and European scout Kevin Wilson wanted to sign Prigioni, but never made an offer because of D’Antoni’s reluctance. Sources said D’Antoni felt Prigioni was a third-stringer and didn’t have the speed to make an NBA rotation. New York Post

The Nets' season opener instead will be Saturday night at Barclays Center against the Toronto Raptors. Bloomberg, who confirmed that game would go on as scheduled, said he's working with the city to provide extra bus service for fans to get to the arena. Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald said Friday's game against the Miami Heat at Madison Square Garden is still on. NBA spokesman Tim Frank later confirmed that in an email. "We're good to go," Grunwald said. The NBA said it doesn't anticipate the status of the Knicks-Heat game to change Thursday. Nets coach Avery Johnson informed his team in the middle of Wednesday's practice at Barclays Center that the game against the Knicks was postponed. "We're definitely disappointed ... but we realize the seriousness of the situation," Nets point guard Deron Williams said on "SportsCenter." "A lot of people have lost homes and lost loved ones, so in the grand scheme of things, it's really not that important." ESPN.com

That was it. One of the more intriguing and publicly debated personnel decisions in NBA history ended in half a minute. No questions were asked, no pointed comments were uttered and no animated feelings were expressed. Lin, the undrafted 23-year-old who rose to global stardom in his first 25 starts after being cut twice, politely told Grunwald, "I just want to thank you. Best of luck in the future." SI.com

The Rockets sent representatives to the Knicks practice on Friday and to the game on Saturday but could not find Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald. The offer sheet was FedExed to the Knicks’ New York office and will have the receipt forwarded to the league office, but league officials said that until it can be shown that the Knicks have the offer sheet in hand, the clock on the Knicks’ three-day period to match would not begin.

Mike Woodson was asked today whether the Knicks would match the offer sheet the Raptors gave Landry Fields and it didn't sound like they would at this point. "That’s a Glen Grunwald question in terms of where we’re going to go with that," Woodson said. "But as it stands right now it’s all about the guys that we’ve already made the commitment to in terms of getting them where they need to be." The Knicks have until Saturday to match it. #Knicks Sulia

“I’ve been talking to [Knicks general manager Glen] Grunwald about four, five years about him,’’ Bass said. “This is the year it got done. He’s been very persistent checking in about Pablo. He’s a very big fan. He’ll bring leadership and will be there to help Jeremy a little bit.’’ New York Post

The Lin offer sheet should be a priority because no other move they will make has the ability to spur season-ticket sales than signing “17.’’ The Knicks also will officially sign Jason Kidd, Steve Novak, J.R. Smith, James White and formally execute the sign-and-trade for Marcus Camby. It’s a busy day for general manager Glen Grunwald, who probably won’t match Landry Fields’ three-year, $18.5 million offer sheet from the Raptors, with Smith now aboard. New York Post

Knicks GM Glen Grunwald said on the night of the NBA draft that his priority is re-signing not only Smith, but Jeremy Lin, Steve Novak and Landry Fields. "We want to keep both (Lin and Novak) and keep Landry and J.R.," Grunwald said on Thursday night. "They're all valuable players and we're going to try to keep all four of them. We have some (recruiting) plans. We've been in contact with our own free agents and they've expressed their desire to come back. They know we love them and want them. We'll do the negotiating and hopefully it all works out." ESPN.com
