Hands down, they are NBA players,” White said. “It’s just funny how it works here. Even last year with the team they had with the kind of players they had, no one got a call up but Briante. But hands down. Seeing it in practice and seeing it in games, hands down Briante is an NBA player and Keith Benson. I think it’s only a matter of time.”

With undrafted rookie Ron Baker solidifying his place as a Knick after Friday’s heroics in Milwaukee, Westchester Knicks point guard Chasson Randle has a workout Sunday with the 76ers, according to an NBA source. The Sixers have been looking for perimeter help to offset their glut of big men.

Point guard Chasson Randle, playing while wearing a mask after fracturing his orbital bone, is averaging 26 points in the first two games for the Westchester Knicks. He was cut by the Knicks in training camp with the idea he would play in Westchester and perhaps be re-signed. Ron Baker, who is not in the rotation, took Randle’s spot. “We’re not going to bring him up unless someone has an injury,’’ Hornacek said. “He’s doing a great job down there, had a nice game [Wednesday] night. Of course, we have an eye on him. With the group we have now with 15 guys, more than likely it’d be an injury for him to come up.’’
Point guard Chasson Randle (fractured orbital bone), who is not on the 15-man roster, is starting his rehab stint with the Westchester Knicks at training camp and is expected to be signed when he’s back in shape. Hornacek, meanwhile, still is trying to find his bench rotation. The new flavor of the week is defensive forward Maurice Ndour, who managed five fouls in six minutes of action and went scoreless. Hornacek has soured on the two rookie Europeans, small forward Mindaugus Kuzminskas and center Willy Hernangomez, because of their inexperience on defense.

Peter Edmiston: Interesting quote from our talk w/ Griz GM Chris Wallace about philosophy on who to call up from the D-League. CHRIS WALLACE ON PHILOSOPHY OF D-LEAGUE CALL-UPS: "Some teams say 'Hey, we want an older guy who's going to make a minimum amount of mistakes, learn the system right away. We're not worried about any upside from a young guy who might become a rotation player down the road'. We've taken a little different track. We've wanted younger guys to take a look at, and that's sort of been my history in call-ups. I've been involved in more call-ups than I can remember from my days in Miami, Boston, and now here, and the best ones - like when we brought Bruce Bowen into Miami, Adrian Griffin and Mark Blount into Boston - those were young guys wto have not had a tremendous amount of opportunities. They had not had the opportunities to be rejected and fail like some of the older guys, and we got lucky and hit some of those players and they never went back down."

Baron Davis, a month shy of his 37th birthday, wants to play again in the NBA. Preferably, he’d do so with the Warriors. “I would love to. It would be a dream come true. Be a dream come true, man,” says Davis, his grin as big as it ever was, nine years after leading the “We Believe” Warriors to pro basketball’s biggest-ever postseason upset. “Who wouldn’t want to play on a team that plays basketball the way it should be played? I’ve always dreamed about playing for a team that’s unselfish. “I love ’em. Everyone bought into the system. Most importantly, they bought into each other. It’s just the beauty of watching them. I never miss a game. They are my favorite team.”

TMZ Sports has obtained video showing the controversial arrest of New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes … an incident LAPD is now investigating for possible use of excessive force. The clip starts with 21-year-old Hayes — the #8 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft — tussling on the ground with 3 police officers who are attempting to control and cuff Jaxson. One of the cops presses his taser against the Pelican center’s chest and shocks him.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles PD Chief Michael Moore announced the department launched an investigation into the arrest after Hayes alleged force was applied to his neck — causing him difficulty breathing. It’s important to note the video we obtained starts with Jaxson on the ground and the taser against his body. TMZ Sports did not edit the starting point of the video.
However, what happened before the video starts rolling is critical … ’cause cops say Hayes is the one who started and escalated the physical confrontation. Police claim when they arrived on the scene, Hayes attempted to enter the home — despite their commands — before he ultimately shoved an officer, injuring him.
