Well, that was scary. Looks like Tyler is fine, though.
For those responding "they signed Odom just for tonight?" Season technically ends June 30th. Free agency starts 7/1. according to reports...
Only seems appropriate that this disastrous Knicks season ends with Masai Ujiri in the house.
Knicks celebrating Fan Appreciation night. Media Appreciation night remains scheduled for Feb. 30.
Grunwald did that with Dan Gadzuric two years ago and he was added to Felton sign-and-trade trade to make it work.
As we've reported, signing Odom today instead of July 1 is if doesn't work out, that 2nd non-guaranteed year could be cap filler in trade.
Correction: four times.
And Odom would probably help with NYKs lack of on-court IQ. Very smart, versatile player. Just have to see if he can still play.
Woodson spoke with the media pregame for 8 minutes, only used the word "unfortunately" three times.
Spent a good 5-10 minutes talking with Shannon Brown about Odom yesterday. Has had his issues, but teammates generally love the guy.
Will have a story coming out later as to how Odom can help. But even if he can't, dont see a huge downside here. Just a long-term tryout.
More Woodson: "I like Bargnani."
More Woodson: "We’ve had some misfortunes in terms of injuries and things of that nature. I’ve never once used that as an excuse."
To those asking: Yes, signing Odom today means this season is Year 1. Next season (nonguaranteed) is Year 2.
Woodson, bold to the bitter end: "I’m the only guy for this job. I’ve always said that. and I don’t mean that in a braggadocios way."
I really like the Odom pickup, by the way.
Odom is not here at the Garden, by the way.
Lamar Odom's contract w/Knicks is a 2-year deal, per source. Second year is nonguaranteed.
The Knicks have signed Lamar Odom for the remainder of the season. Knicks will evaluate him over offseason.
BTW - Although he could be, don't count on Odom just being contract trade chip. Has team option and Phil likes him.
Knicks finally announce Odom signing. Will make pro rates 8,500 bucks for one game.
Berman of the Post is reporting that Lamar Odom would consider playing in Israel in 2015.
Knicks President Phil Jackson announced that the team has signed forward Lamar Odom for the remainder of the season.”
The surgery for Kenyon Martin is to remove bone spurs from his ankle. Waited until now for the purpose of trying to return this year.
Phil Jackson announced that the team has signed forward Lamar Odom for the remainder of the season.
Kenyon says wants to be back as a Knick
Kenyon says expects to have ankle surgery soon.
Kenyon said underachieving is on the team - but knows it will fall on the coach.
Kenyon Martin said he will have a procedure on his ankle at same point, probably a scope.
Let's cut the NBA season to 80 games, since nobody plays the last 2 anymore anyway.
Woodson: Am I the guy for the job? I’m the only guy for this job. I’ve always said that. And I don’t mean that in a braggadocios way
Woodson was asked if he will be a part of exit interviews with players. He declined to comment. It's common for a coach to take part in them

Mike Woodson: "If they bring me back I'll make damn sure this doesn't happen again."

Woodson, on how difficult this yr has been for him: "It's a been tough season. I don't wish it on any coach."
Felton and Chandler to sit out finale
Just bumped into Raptors GM Masai Ujiri, who as Nuggets GM got Denver the Knicks 2014 lottery pick. Also traded Bargnani for 1st round pick
No Chandler or Felton tonight. Stoudemire is playing. He played better and more than expected this season.
Chandler and Felton won't play tonight in NYKs season finale.
.@chefmaxhardy did it again. Last pre-game meal of the season. Thanks to everyone for your season long support http://t.co/jlndLTEqoo
Great to see that much explanation behind someone's ballot, by the way. Reporters often get criticized 4 not studying. Zach clearly studies.
