The New York Knicks have been the talk of the league this offseason with all of the signings and not-signings they have been involved with.
The most surprising move of the entire summer was when the Knicks decided to let Jeremy Lin walk to the Houston Rockets and instead traded for Raymond Felton to be their starting point guard. No one believed New York would ever allow him to leave, especially Lin who told Pablo S. Torre of Sports Illustrated that he preferred New York even though he signed a deal with Houston.
The first thing the Knicks did this offseason was re-sign head coach Mike Woodson. Most of the players praised Woodson as their head coach, so the Knicks decided to give him a three-year extension worth around $4 million per year.
The Knicks were also able to sign a number of free agents to help the team improve from last season. They brought back J.R. Smith and Steve Novak, whose contracts expired after last year and added veterans Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby and Ronnie Brewer to the mix as well.
Now the Knicks’ lineup is currently set with the maximum allowed 15 players under contract. A few of them are not guaranteed, and the Knicks still have the option of sending someone down to their D-League team though, so one or two spots still could be up for grabs.
Here are the latest rumors surrounding the New York Knicks and whether or not they will actually happen.
