Tean oiptions not taken: John Jenkins, Nemanja Nedovic, Austin Rivers, Shane Larkin, Thomas Robinson - am I missing any? @BBallInsiders

Kurt Helin

Report: Knicks to decline Shane Larkin’s fourth-year option dlvr.it/7NKkYN

Adam Zagoria

Knicks won’t pick up Shane Larkin’s option theknicksblog.com/knicks/knicks-…

Chris Herring

My personal opinion on NYK/Larkin: Pick up his option. Not a lot of $$$ saved if you pass on him. Plus, could move him if you really had to.

Tommy Beer

Could Phil feel Shane Larkin needs extra motivation? Can’t see another reason not to pick up Larkin’s option… (Cap savings are minimal)

Marc Berman

Nothing's changed with #Knicks view on Shane Larkin's contract option with deadline today. They'll pass. Larkin had 9 pts, 5 assists but -5.

Jonah Ballow

The most passes by a Knick last night against CLE? @Carmelo Anthony with 36. Larkin 2nd with 31. #Knicks

Igor Minteguia

Ganar en Cleveland con Shane Larkin de base titular y Quincy Acy de baluarte defensivo tiene mérito, eh! Esto solo pasa con los Knicks

Alan Hahn

Good question. RT @Jake_Nussbaum: @Alan Hahn tomorrow is the last day to pick up Larkin's option...you think they do it?

Ian Begley

#Knicks PG Shane Larkin had a strong night in place of Jose Calderon, finishing with 9 points, 5 assists and a game-high 5 steals.

Alan Hahn

Better Call Saul! RT @collinskid43: @Alan Hahn I trust the law firm of Acy, Smith & Larkin

Chris Herring

Interesting that Fisher pulls Larkin. Instead, uses the more sure-handed Prigioni. But Knicks turn it over, as shot-clock expires.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin, Smith, Shump, Melo, STAT on the floor for the #Knicks.

Joseph Goodman

He's better, so... RT @Tim Reynolds Midway through the fourth quarter, Shane Larkin has more field goals than LeBron James.

Adam Zagoria

In what universe did you imagine Barkley saying Quincy Acy & Shane Larkin 'have been the 2 best players on the court for the Knicks"?

Wally Szcerzbiak

Shane Larkin has been really steady tonight. 5 steals on D. #Knicks

Ohm Youngmisuk

Larkin is showing small glimpses of what Knicks were hoping he could do -- be a sparkplug pushing ball and creating some havoc on defense

Jonah Ballow

Travis Wear quickly in the lineup to start the 3Q. Checked in for Acy. #Knicks now w/ Larkin, Shump, Wear, Melo, Jason Smith.

Chris Haynes

Shane Larkin penetrated and passed to an open man on the wing. It was the right play but the open person was a referee. Turnover.

Eric Pincus

Options pending by 10/31 - Dennis Schroeder, John Jenkins, Shane Larkin, Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten @BBallInsiders

Jonah Ballow

Larkin has saved the #Knicks on some defensive possessions in transition.

Derek Bodner

I feel like every Knicks fast break ends up in a Shane Larkin pull-up jumper.

Jake Fischer

Shane Larkin is making Kyrie Irving look like an All-NBA defender.

Eric Pincus

Updated @BBallInsiders New York Knicks Team Salary - Shane Larkin option was not taken, deadline Friday basketballinsiders.com/new-york-knick…

Ethan J. Skolnick

Knicks look like a homecoming opponent for 2nite's LeBron homecoming in Cleveland. Starters: Dalembert, Acy, Shumpert, Larkin w/ Carmelo.

Steve Popper

Now I see what all of the hoopla is about here in Cleveland - Knicks starting Quincy Acy, Dalembert, Larkin, Shumpert and Melo.

Michael Scotto

Knicks have changed the starting lineup. Quincy Acy starts for Amar'e Stoudemire with Melo, Shane Larkin, Iman Shumpert and Samuel Dalembert

Chris Herring

Fisher says Larkin, Shump, Melo, Acy and Dalembert will start.

Eric Pincus

Confirmed that Shane Larkin's option was NOT taken to date @BBallInsiders re:New York Knicks

Adam Zagoria

Shane Larkin will get a baptism by fire at the PG for #Knicks, who open w/ Bulls & Cavs

Ian Begley

#Knicks PG Jose Calderon out 2-3 weeks with right calf strain. Prigioni & Larkin only true PGs on the roster. More: es.pn/1sLImus

Alan Hahn

I like Shane's speed. Pablo is good off bench. Solid vet. RT @ImmanuelJames: @Alan Hahn do you think they should start Pablo over Larkin?

Alan Hahn

Let's see more. RT @harrycalat: @Alan Hahn Larkin do anything to make Phil think twice about letting him go FA?

Alan Hahn

I thought he was OK last night. RT @alexhorowitz3: @Alan Hahn Will Larkin continue to the starter in Calderon's absence?

Ian Begley

Larkin said the #Knicks "started chasing shots" and failed to create spacing late in the first quarter when Chicago made its run.

Chris Herring

Shane Larkin: "We started going one-on-one. And as we saw in the preseason, when we do that, we're not very good."

Adam Zagoria

Some #Knicks fans sitting their paid $500 to watch Shane Larkin, Tim Hardaway, Quincy Acy, Travis Wear and Cole Aldrich losing by 30.

Steve Popper

Kind of troubling that Shane Larkin's skill is speed and on opening night two PG's are running circles around him.

Chris Herring

One thing that bugs me: For as often as Larkin starts fast breaks, never seems like NYK gets any shots out of it. He's not aggressive enough

Chris Herring

Can't take much from tonight, since Larkin won't usually start. But aside from NYKs defense, their bench is what concerns me most this year.

Jonah Ballow

J.R. Smith comes off the bench & now we have the Larkin/Smith backcourt.

Ian Begley

Iman Shumpert, guarding Derrick Rose, picks up 2 fouls in five minutes. Prigioni subs in, playing alongside Larkin. That's a short backcourt

Jonah Ballow

With 2 early fouls on Shump, Fisher elects to go with the 2 PG backcourt — Larkin/Pablo.

Wally Szcerzbiak

Shane Larkin looks quicker and faster than Derrick Rose. #Knicks

Ohm Youngmisuk

DRose got some rust to shake off. Shane Larkin shook him with a crossover and Melo later strips him on a drive.

Julian Mozo

#NBA No juega Calderón (pantorilla) y Fisher elige a Larkin como base titular. Buen día para que Prigioni rinda y cambie esa idea del DT.

Marc Berman

Fisher Era off to a 8-2 start. Larkin, Melo Stoudemire (2) with buckets after four minutes. Timeout Thibs.

Jonah Ballow

Shump starting on Rose. On the opposite side, Rose on Larkin.

Adam Zagoria

Raise your hand if you had Shane Larkin with the Knicks' first 2 points of the 2014-15 season

Joe Cowley

Like Rubio last week, Larkin going right at Rose.
