Felton pointed to the elderly bench of Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd, who fell apart in the playoffs, as part of the team’s ultimate undoing, getting KO’d in the second round by the Pacers. With training camp opening Monday, none of those players are back. Three of them have retired. “We’re a younger team this year,’’ Felton said at an Under Armour appearance at Macy’s in Herald Square. “Kurt Thomas, Rasheed, love them like brothers. [But] those guys were 38, 39, 40 years old. Once they got injuries, they’re out and it hurt us last year. We’ve added Metta [World Peace], [Andrea] Bargnani, Kenyon [Martin] and Amar’e [Stoudemire] are coming back. Tim Hardaway [Jr.] looks great by the way. I’ve been most impressed with him. It gives us depth at that big spot and youth. Those guys are younger." New York Post

But whether it’s important or not, it is the first opportunity for rookies to initiate themselves into the NBA, and Knicks rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. wishes he had gotten a chance to have more of an extended run in Las Vegas last month. “I really wanted to play,” Hardaway told The Post at the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program Wednesday in Florham Park. “I really wanted to go out there and showcase my abilities at the next level. I only had one game, a game and a quarter, to do it, and I know if I had more opportunities to play that I would blossom and show everybody I am a better player than I was in that first game.” New York Post

Tim Hardaway Jr. was casually dribbling and shooting around with his fellow rookies at the Knicks' facility Tuesday afternoon, about three weeks after spraining his left wrist in the NBA summer league. He said afterward that his wrist is pain free and he is confident he'll be 100 percent healthy for training camp. "I feel really good," Hardaway said Tuesday at the NBA rookie photo shoot in Greenburgh. "No pain." ESPN.com

The Knicks' first-round pick says he's been "taking it easy" and avoiding any risks as he prepares for his first NBA training camp. "I just want to be precautionary, that's all; I feel good. I just want to make sure I'm 100 percent for training camp," Hardaway said. ESPN.com

The Sacramento Kings are looking to acquire a second first-round pick and are using guard Jimmer Fredette as bait. Sources say the Kings have reached out to a number of teams in the mid-to-late first round in an attempt to secure another pick. Both the Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz are potential destinations for Jimmer. Kings coach Mike Malone is enamored with both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Tony Snell, but the Kings feel that they can get them much lower in the draft. ESPN.com
