D-League name and logo to be announced on Wednesday

The Knicks’ development league team in White Plains will have their new name and logo announced on Wednesday.

The organization said they will unveil the name and logo during the open house at the Westchester County Center at 6 p.m.

“We’re very excited to bring an NBA Development League team to Westchester, a great basketball community that has embraced orange and blue and served as our training home for 25 plus years,” Knicks’ assistant GM Allan Houston said in April.

Houston will serve as the team’s general manager.

The team will play 24 home games and tickets will start at $12 (Marcus, March 10).

It's a breath of fresh air to see the knicks actually negotiating with kerr and his agent. Dolan would have gave him 30 million by now if he truly wanted him. Good for 2015.

They say no news is good news, but sometime no news is no news.....

There's still no contract agreement between the Knicks and Steve Kerr, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. Talks will continue this week.

Spike Lee didn't become the most visible -- and audible -- New York Knicks fan around by keeping his views to himself. The longtime Knickerbockers backer was likely speaking for fans in all five boroughs when he offered his latest take on the franchise's coaching search.

"I want Phil Jackson to coach," Lee told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill on Monday when asked about the Knicks' reported interest in Steve Kerr filling the team's coaching vacancy.

THEN he catches himself saying something like there are no "African-Americans"

Hopefully Chandler works on his game this offseason. Lopez is scoring on PNR's that aren't alley oops, something Chandler can't do without barreling over the defender.

Livefire administrators, please fix this site. Regular posters have a difficult time replying to comments, there's no dashboard, we can't upload avatars unless we have a FB or twitter account, the primary contributors know little to nothing about (Knick) basketball, not to mention, anyone can flag comments just because they don't like your opinion.

We've dealt with this BS all season...on top of the fact that our team suckkked! Fix this website.

By the way, Wicksell, I'm in Georgia. I've only been trying to tell you that for the past 20 minutes, but, this site has so many bugs.

D'Antoni "player development": Stat inflation

Popovich player development: Improved fundamentals on both sides of the ball (ex: Patty Mills)

The more I think about it, there's no such thing as a "Heat fan." The very phrase itself is an oxymoron!

Think about it...what is a "Heat fan?" smh

Curious - what do TKBers think of Aldridge getting a max offer from the Knicks in 2015?


(assuming Knicks will have roughly $25M in cap room in 2015)

 I wish Phil would coach also but he had five hip operations and he said he has other medical issues---maybe his heart or something. He can't physically do it. Spike needs to stop being so selfish and stop putting public pressure on PJ.

@KnickelusKnickleby I hear ya...but I remember when the Knicks took a game from the Heat...their were fans here doing the same thing..lol..we had beaten the Heat 3-1 season series that year I believe.

@KnickelusKnickleby I think that goes to the heart of the Nets problem. I've always thought that every Knicks GM prior to Jackson (if we can believe Dolan will not meddle this time) simply carried out Dolan's marching orders. How has that worked for the Knicks. Not so great. To the point that Dolan has agreed to step back and let his Basketball operations people do their job under PJax' new regime. I think part of the Nets problem is that they're trying to stoke a rivalry with the Knicks. They need the Knicks like God needs the Devil. They're draw is supposed to be that they're not the Knicks and even better than our team. Hence, proky is driving that crazy train and every questionable move made there to put out a product that is the converse of the Knicks. That's management under tunnel vision. And tunnel vision was what Knicks management is finally free of. Serves them right.

Look at what Pop gets out of his role players - Mills, Baynes, etc. - even those nights when his stars sit...it's incredible.  Imagine if Austin Daye starts raining 3's against OKC next round, lol...

Absolutely man! This is the same exact scenario great comparison. Possibly don't want to get to have any good news because of the Rangers also. If kerr goes to the Draft combine we know it's def a done deal.

@akamarb  

I think Shawne Williams hurt his foot after signing with the Nets. He actually played very well for the Knicks. I recall him guarding Dwight Howard after Shelden Williams got in foul trouble.He didn't back down at all.

Not sure what D'Antoni did for him, but he was nailing the corner three for us.

@akamarb  

If you're on your last year of a deal, nobody you'd rather play for than D'Antoni (as long as you stay out of the doghouse)

@illmatix @BigChiefTriangle  

Personally, I'm not a fan of paying max money to a power forward in 2015 (assuming Carmelo stays)...I say allocate resources towards better guard play and a center.

@KnickelusKnickleby @solar_lionI hope he's continues to run the Nets with that little brother complex. Let it muck up his managements shot calling and undermine any sound management approach.  I loathe the Nets.

Yeah I def see the Tyreke Evans route for MCW. He's no Lillard or Irving.

Oh, they can recover....for one, Russ is not the type of player with a long memory, lol...he will just go out there and ball....I think the other players will follow suit

Yes, OKC has such a killer advantage against the Clips with Russ and KD, but they are their own worst enemy...
