So Phil’s got to get a star if he loses Anthony. I’ve heard this one: The Knicks get Noah and the Bulls get Tyson Chandler, a good expiring deal so they can go after Kevin Love next year, and Iman Shumpert, who is from Chicago and a good defender who Thibs would like and Pablo Prigioni, a good backup point if they lose Augustin and Hinrich. The Bulls gets three for one. How could they pass on that? Oh, right, they give up the only good player in the deal. Just what the Knicks might be thinking regarding Anthony. NBA.com

What about the Knicks? What are they doing? On Saturday we found out that Tyson Chandler was not getting recognized around New York City, and it appears it may have irked him slightly. Chandler was out for a bite to eat on Saturday afternoon at a burrito stand in the city and posted the picture of his receipt, which had a funny identifier for the 7′ 1″ center. Sports-Kings.com

If Knicks president Phil Jackson is more concerned with 2015 free agency than the 2014-15 season, center Tyson Chandler acknowledged this may not be the right place for him. “I definitely don’t want to waste another season,’’ Chandler said before the Knicks faced the Nets Tuesday at Barclays Center. “I don’t want to waste this season. I’m not into wasting seasons. Your time is too short in this league and I want to win a championship, another one. I’m not into wasting seasons.’’ New York Post

In an interview shortly after he was released by the Knicks, World Peace told ESPN New York that his teammates talked often about how much the club misses Jason Kidd this season. "I spoke to a lot of people and a lot of people are saying Jason Kidd was the reason [for the Knicks' poor play this year]," World Peace said in late February. "... I spoke to Tyson about it and Tyson said Jason Kidd used to do a lot of adjustments on the court. So that was an issue that we had this year with Jason Kidd becoming a coach. A lot of times they kept saying, 'We miss that presence of Jason Kidd.'" ESPN.com

With the expiring contracts of Chandler, Amar’e Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani, the Knicks will have flexibility at next year’s trade deadline. If it looks like Love is leaving frigid Minnesota, the Wolves may trade him for any asset they can, and the Knicks would pounce at a sign-and-extend for Love the way they landed Anthony three years ago. One league source said of the Knicks’ bid for Love, “They’re selling New York fans land in New Mexico.’’ New York Post

If Anthony decides to remain with the Knicks after opting out of the final year of his contract this summer, Love — a 6-10 power forward with the ability to knock down three-pointers — figures to be a high-end target for the Knicks to spend some of their expected cap space on after next season. “He’s a guy who, he became a stretch-4. He never was a stretch-4 before,” Anthony said, in response to a question about Love’s evolvement over the past few seasons. “He worked on his shot. He worked on his three-ball. He worked on stretching the floor, spreading floor out. He can also go inside. He’s one hell of a rebounder. He’s a big load. “He’s a guy who got better every year since he’s been in the league and still he’s improving now.” New York Daily News

Knicks center Tyson Chandler is so disillusioned he isn’t sure he wants to be part of the team’s long-term future. With the Knicks in chaos, owner James Dolan is going to look to rebuild or reload at season’s end. Whether Chandler, who is starting to show signs of age, is part of the blueprints is unclear. And Chandler may not want to stick around either. “That’s something I have to visit during the offseason,’’ Chandler said. “We’re all going to have a lot of decisions to make.’’ New York Post
