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.

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.

D'Antoni "player development": Stat inflation

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

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)

Wow, I did not realize Wes Matthews went undrafted...he's a real nice role player.

If Miami doesn't have LeBron how many games would they win?

 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.

@akamarb  

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...

@kingofny  IF the Knicks faced the Heat head to head with M7 and LB playing I'd pick the NYK by 18 every time

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.

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.

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.

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

@akamarb  Bro...remember when KD came in the league...He didnt exactly scare anyone.. NOW LOOK

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

@akamarb  

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

@kingofny @Vaughn Allen @thatsagoodpoint  I could use numbers to support alot of thesis's.. but its all hypothetical so is makes for great *ponderance. And I ponder Amare (that finished up the season strong) dominate in that match up
