New York Knicks Rumors
The Knicks will be able to trade most of their roster in December and could make a very enticing offer with their role players. Of course, division factors and sharing the same vaccination mandate as the Nets eliminates them as a suitor. This also would eliminate the Clippers who can offer a combination of role players, unless they’re okay with Irving on a part-time basis.
Fournier, who was already a top French player for his age group, says few people really believed in Gobert, but he competed hard. “One of the reasons why me and him are very close is because I never gave him shit,” Fournier says. But plenty of kids did. Gobert would get laughed at by his peers when he’d tell them that he’d make it to the NBA. “Everybody was looking at me crazy,” Gobert says. “I wasn’t even the best player on my team back then.”
Seven more players eligible for extensions: Milwaukee’s Grayson Allen (No. 21), Chicago’s Troy Brown Jr. (No. 15), Washington’s Aaron Holiday (No. 23), New York’s Kevin Knox (No. 8), Minnesota’s Josh Okogie (No. 20), Phoenix’s Landry Shamet (No. 26) and Portland’s Anfernee Simons (No. 24). An extension for any of the players in this group would be considered surprising and I have already been told that deals for Okogie and Simons are unlikely.
Shams Charania: The New York Knicks and former Spurs first-round pick Luka Samanic have agreed on a two-way contract, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.
