Phil Jackson can’t talk about Kobe Bryant because of tampering rules. But the Knicks President was asked about his former star guard amid rumors that Bryant could somehow land in New York given the Lakers’ disastrous start to this NBA season: “We just have to measure, always, what’s this team’s potential?” Jackson said Monday night about his thoughts on the Bryant rumors. “What is this group’s potential? What do we have in front of us as an organization? I always used to say, ‘General managers are thinking three to five years ahead, coaches are thinking one to three games ahead, that’s about as far as they can see.’ The Knicks Blog

“”If there is not a real opportunity for [Bryant] to win a championship there, the thought of him leaving may shock Lakers fans,” Fox said. “But I wouldn’t put it past him going in search of one or two more championships. Personally, I think it’s going to get done in New York. I really do. I just believe in Phil. I’ve been around him. I know Kobe has had his greatest success with Phil in a leadership capacity. So the reuniting of the two is not an unrealistic thought.” Los Angeles Daily News

Your suggestion regarding the Knicks trading Stoudemire for Kobe Bryant makes so much sense to me I was wondering what would be the Knicks justification for not doing it. The initial reaction to your suggestion according to a "Knick source" was there was a 0% chance of this happening. Bruce Roberts Sam: I see it’s gotten some traction since I speculated about it Monday, though “Knicks source” in a New York newspaper generally means someone who’s been to a Knicks game or gets the subway at Penn Station under Madison Square Garden near the Knicks sign. I could understand why the Knicks might balk as though Kobe has looked great, that’s two years of big money, which cuts them off from this summer free agency. Maybe they have a guy in mind they really want. Marc Gasol’s been rumored, who probably heard good things about Phil from his brother and is a high post type center who’d work well in the offense. I know the Lakers side of needing Kobe for TV ratings, which I think is less urgent. They’ll stop watching even Kobe at 4-28. As I wrote, it’s up to Kobe and maybe he wants to wind it down in L.A.

One of president Phil Jackson’s big decisions this season is whether to trade J.R. Smith, and the club had recent conversations with the Pacers regarding ex-Knick Chris Copeland, according to a league source. The 6-foot-9 Copeland, whom the Pacers signed in July 2013, has an expiring contract after bolting the Knicks for a two-year, $6 million deal, so he wouldn’t affect their 2015 cap space.

The New York Knicks are strongly considering parting ways with veteran forward Travis Outlaw, league sources told ESPNNewYork.com on Saturday. Outlaw is owed $3 million this season. If the Knicks released him, they would still owe him his full salary. They also could dump him on another team via a trade. ESPN.com
