“Yeah, it’s going to be exciting,” he said. “Anytime you’re a free agent it’s exciting. There’s a lot of great players who are going to be out there and it’s going to be fun to see where guys end up. It will be good to see where my situation leads me.” Could it lead him back to Madison Square Garden? “Like I said, we’ll see,” he said. “Free agency isn’t until July and when that time comes I should be able to discuss things like that.” The Knicks Blog

“For now I’m just going to continue to work out, continue to get better and let everything handle itself,” Harris told SNY.tv and The Knicks Blog at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago where he is doing some broadcast work for ESPN. “We’ll see how it plays out,” Harris added. “You never know what could happen but at the same time I’m a restricted free agent so it’s pretty much in their hands to make the call.” The Knicks Blog

The Knicks will send their GM Steve Mills to sit on the lottery dais for Tuesday’s extravaganza in Manhattan in an attempt to bring them much-needed luck as the second seed trying to land the No. 1 pick. New York Post

In his State of Zen Address after the season, president Phil Jackson said he has been averse to sitting on the lottery dais in the past. Coach Derek Fisher was considered another possibility, and former team president Isiah Thomas recently rejoined the Garden ranks as boss of the WNBA’s Liberty. New York Post

The tabbing of Mills is a good sign for his stability within the franchise hierarchy. Jackson inherited Mills 14 months ago, and sources have indicated they’ve made a good tandem. Mills was even more outspoken than Jackson at last month’s season-ticket holders event, revealing at least one club had already tried to trade for their top-5 pick. New York Post

Antetokounmpo’s agent, Tim Lotsos, told ESPN.com in a phone interview last week that Antetokounmpo’s “first goal” is to come back to the Knicks. But he’s also looking for an NBA contract. So the Knicks will have to decide if they want to give him a roster spot on next season’s team. New York can also offer him a tender and retain his rights for next season, but Antetokounmpo could then choose to play overseas rather than play another season for low wages in the D-League.

Lotsos said the Knicks have indicated that they want to sign Antetokounmpo to an NBA contract and give him a spot on the roster. “There is nothing on paper yet, but those are the intentions,” the agent said, adding that Antetokounmpo plans to play on the Knicks’ summer league team. ESPN.com


Carmelo Anthony already ahead of Phil Jackson, but still far away from the all-time New York greats.
