Ian Begley: The Knicks are among several teams in touch with free agent big man Marshall Plumlee, per league sources. New York waived Plumlee last month to create cap space to sign shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr., whom they inked to a $71 million deal. Coach Jeff Hornacek said at the time that he hoped to have the chance to re-sign Plumlee, who expects to make a decision on his next team shortly. The Knicks have several big men in their rotation and it’s unclear if there would be a roster/rotation spot for Plumlee, who impressed coaches with his development and work ethic over the past two seasons.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The New York Knicks are waiving 7-footer Marshall Plumlee, league sources tell ESPN.
Marshall Plumlee, who was on the Knicks summer league team in Orlando, Fla., told The Post he has been invited to Knicks training camp. Thursday, Plumlee signed a partially guaranteed three-year deal — the first year is fully guaranteed at the league minimum of $565,000, and the final two years are non-guaranteed, according to an NBA source. By extending a three-year offer, the Knicks are forced to dip into their eroding cap space for the money, but ensure his salary won’t skyrocket if he has success. On the flip side, Plumlee is the lone undrafted player to get a full guarantee off summer league.

Michael Scotto: New Orleans Pelicans and free agent forward Cliff Alexander have agreed to a 1-year, non-guaranteed deal, league source told @BBallInsiders.
“Carmelo was a mentor to me,” Porzingis said. “He was a big brother from day one. I texted him to tell him I appreciated that I was able to learn from him. Having him around was important for me. I respect him a lot. I also told him that if he doesn’t bring his Rolls Royce with him, I’ll take care of it.”
There is also the matter of reports, including several from the Daily News that Porzingis’ relationship with Jeff Hornacek is on thin ice. Porzingis, who spoke to The News after he was spotted at a midtown eatery Sunday afternoon, declined to address the circumstances behind blowing off his end of the season meeting with Jackson, Hornacek and Steve Mills. The 22-year-old forward would only say, “Honestly, I would love for this year to be a new start. All I’m looking for is a fresh start and not to talk about that anymore.”
Porzingis, however, does stand by his decision to return to Latvia and workout on his own. “It was important that I disconnected from everything,” he added. “I was working on my game and resting my mind. I kept working hard this summer to put myself in this position. I’m coming in with a fresh mind. I don’t want to carry anything from the previous season.”
