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.

After the Mavericks’ shootaround at Pepsi Center on Tuesday, Dennis Smith Jr. clearly laid out his thoughts on the Verizon Slam Dunk event that will be on Saturday night, Feb. 17, in Los Angeles. “That’s something I’d like to do,” the 20-year-old said. “If I’m given the opportunity, I’m definitely willing to do it. That’s the event that I watched a lot growing up, and it’s probably the most exciting event of the All-Star weekend, except the actual game.”
If the league sticks with four dunkers, that means that a lot of quality rim-benders will be left out. “I don’t know when it happens,” Smith said, adding that he has not heard anything yet about the possibility of being in the event. “But it feels like I should be given the opportunity. It’s not my decision, though.”

Just based off the highlights that I’ve seen and just watching his game.
