Anthony has a no-trade contract and a 15 percent trade kicker, although he might take a buyout to play with James. The Knicks seem to be a total disaster, with Jackson talking about trading Kristaps Porzingis on draft night, although no one paid the outrageous ransom Jackson demanded to deal the 21-year-old star power forward. Knicks owner James Dolan was playing with his blues-rock band 3½ miles away from the draft at Barclays Center and unaware of what was going on.

Doug McDermott feels valued, he said. His 3-point shooting helps draw defenses and space the floor, particularly when he’s on the court with Russell Westbrook. “And now that we added (Paul George), I think it’ll be probably more important, because we’ve got a lot of talent out there,” McDermott said. “ I look forward to doing that, to spacing the floor, but also showing that I can do more than that.”
Explaining that he cleaned up his act five years ago for the sake of his daughter, Beasley said Smith was continuing an unfair narrative by saying on the radio that the Knicks forward is “smoking something.” Smith’s point – which he hammered home by saying the league needs to test Beasley for weed — was in response to Beasley’s comment two days earlier about himself and three other Knicks being capable of scoring 25 points apiece.
“He’s a liar, bro,” Beasley said. “I love the words he uses, I love how adamant he is, especially when he’s wrong because if you’re not going to stand for yourself, who is going to stand for you? Cool. But it’s like literally, I’ve sat next to guys he was on the TV talking about, and (Smith’s) saying, ‘Man, I just got off the phone with this guy.’ And literally, I’m next to that guy he’s talking about, and he says, ‘Man, I’ve never even been in a room with Stephen A.’ Why does what you say have credibility when literally everybody knows you’re lying about it?”
