The Knicks have waived Troy Williams.

He looked pretty good in the Summer League with 13.3 points in 19.6 minutes per game, so this is a bit surprising. With Williams waived, the Knicks bring their roster size down to 15. Williams shouldn't have any problems finding a camp invite.

Coach David Fizdale is flying to Latvia to meet with Kristaps Porzingis and one of his priorities is showing Porzingis "a lot of film of Kevin Knox."

Fizdale has talked about how well he thinks they'll complement each other and is already dreaming of a pick-and-roll play featuring the two. Fizdale believes Porzingis and Knox can be a "dynamic duo for the next several years." Knox had this to add about KP, "He’s one of the best players in the league, so it will be fun to play with him." Hopefully, the Unicorn has a speedy recovery and we can see this sooner rather than later.

Mitchell Robinson has switched agents from Raymond Brothers to John Spencer because of how his pre-draft process was handled.

He believes he could have been a first-round pick had he taken part in the combine, but his reps decided he shouldn't the day before. "He had trained two months just for the combine and he was ready for it,’’ one source said. Robinson would have been in store for a much bigger payday than his 4-year, $6.4 million deal had he gone in the first round.

Mitchell Robinson went off again during his final Vegas game on Friday, scoring 14 points with 12 rebounds and five blocks.

What a week for the No. 36 pick. Assuming someone doesn't drop like 10 blocks in a game, Robinson will be the event leader in total blocks to go with his three double-doubles. We saw the Knicks play guys like Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks at center last year, so Robinson absolutely has a chance to find himself as the backup C with Kyle O'Quinn in Indiana. His upside in blocks makes him an automatic player to watch in nine-cat leagues.

Luke Kornet (ankle) will not play on Friday.

He was out earlier this week because of a hamstring issue, so this is different. Kornet certainly picked up some extra competition with Mitchell Robinson coming through like gangbusters, so Kornet is likely dropping on the depth chart.
Jul 13 - 4:38 PM

Frank Ntilikina and Allonzo Trier will rest Friday vs. New Orleans.

French Frank has been dealing with a minor groin injury, but it's not considered serious. Ntilikina still is a major work in progress on the offensive end, but he still has the physical tools to impact the game in other ways. He's not someone fantasy owners should be targeting yet.

Kevin Knox will not play Friday afternoon against the Pelicans.

That's a wrap for his summer league as presumably he is getting the day off. Knox was extremely impressive with his highlight-reel plays, averaging 21.3 points, 6.5 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.3 blocks in 32.3 minutes over four games. He did struggle to hit tough shots with his 35 FG%, but the Knicks were just testing his limits. He'll be in the rotation to start the year, and he'll have much more fantasy value in points/DFS leagues over nine-cat formats.
Jul 13 - 4:22 PM

Luke Kornet scored seven points and had two rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes in the Knicks summer league loss to the Celtics on Thursday.

He was held out due to a hamstring injury but was able to log 20-plus minutes here, and looked decent doing it. Kornet will likely play a larger role than his 20-game season last year, but he'll be competing for minutes with Mitchell Robinson who impressed in summer league.
Jul 12 - 6:22 PM

Mitchell Robinson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three steals, six block, no turnovers and one foul in 27 minutes during a loss to the Celtics on Thursday.

He has been absolutely incredible in his time in Vegas. Robinson continues to rack up the blocks, he even has shown he can be a roll man off PNR, and he even caught an alley-oop jam off a Kevin Knox dime. General manager Scott Perry said Robinson didn't play 5-on-5 ball for 14 months, and president Steve Mills said the rookie is "an NBA-level athlete" already. If you're an Knicks fan, you have to be extremely psyched about the No. 36 pick.
Jul 12 - 6:20 PM

Kevin Knox made 5-of-20 from the field for 15 points with four rebounds, three assists, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

The Knicks are not interested in getting Knox easy shots, and they're clearly just going to let him grow through mistakes on offense. Despite his poor shooting, Knox's athleticism is about as high as any forward prospect with length, quickness, hops, and a solid jumper to go with it. His fantasy ceiling is still fairly low because of efficiency concerns and he won't rack up defensive stats at this point in his career. Still, Knox looks like he'll be getting over 24 sooner rather than later.
Jul 12 - 6:19 PM

Frank Ntilikina (groin) out is again for Thursday.

He was out on Tuesday, so the Knicks will play it safe with their young guard. Coach David Fizdale has talked about how Ntilikina is understanding his role with the team, but he hasn't really been oozing with confidence about Ntilikina being a big offensive factor. For today, Allonzo Trier should get more chances to produce in the backcourt.
Jul 12 - 4:13 PM

Troy Williams hit 5-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes on Tuesday.

He's been aggressive and is clearly over his fractured jaw from April. He's just hoping to be a part of the rotation this season, which might not be too hard while playing for the Knicks. Then again, Kevin Knox looks like the real deal, which won't help Williams in his quest for playing time.
Jul 10 - 11:11 PM

Allonzo Trier started and had 21 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a. 3-pointer in 30 minutes of Tuesday's SL loss to the Lakers.

He's likely to spend a lot of time in the G-League this season, but he's played very well in Summer League so far.
Jul 10 - 11:07 PM

Kevin Knox got off to a slow start on Tuesday, but bounced back to hit 9-of-22 shots, five 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 29 points to go along with nine boards, two assists and a steal.

He had seven turnovers and got off to an 0-for-6 start tonight, but bounced back to lead the Knicks on a furious comeback. The No. 9 pick in the draft is turning heads in New York (averaging 23.3 points through three games) and says he wants to be the Rookie of the Year. And given the way the Knicks roster is shaping up, it's not a crazy goal.
Jul 10 - 11:03 PM

Mitchell Robinson hit 5-of-6 shots for 13 points, eight rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes of Tuesday's SL loss to the Lakers.

He also picked up five more fouls, but the No. 36 pick in the draft is having a nice Summer League thus far. He had 12 points, 11 boards and two blocks on Sunday, and it looks like he's going to be on the Knicks roster on opening night. And he might end up being a steal, as he fell in the draft due to off-court issues.
