Jimmy Butler is "most determined" to end up with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Woj reported earlier today that the Clippers, Knicks, and Nets are among Butler's preferred destinations. Shams Charania of The Athletic also mentioned the Heat as a potential landing spot. Butler is eyeing a team that can accommodate him and another star player. He would like to be traded now so that he can lock in a five-year max contract worth $190 million next summer, instead of a four-year, $140 million contract if he were to leave Minnesota in free agency.

Kyrie Irving will reportedly consider the Knicks as an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

Irving was traded to Boston this past season, but New York was one of the teams he initially put on his wishlist, so the Knicks should be able to get a meeting with him next year. Irving has been non-committal about his future in Boston thus far, although some of that could certainly be posturing. Either way, we've got a long ways to go until next year's free agency, so this is just something to make a note of.

Clippers executives have reportedly flown to Dallas to meet with free agent Anthony Tolliver.

Previous reports suggested that a minimum of five teams are interested in Tolliver, and L.A. sent a contingent of "top brass" to meet him at his own home. The Knicks are among the teams interested in Tolliver, whose 3-point shooting continues to bolster his appeal -- he averaged 2.0 triples on career-best 43.6% shooting from deep last season.

The Knicks have reportedly reached out to unrestricted free agent Amir Johnson.

Johnson could help backup the center spot in New York, but he wouldn't have any value in fantasy hoops.
Jul 1 - 4:35 PM

The Timberwolves, Lakers, Knicks, Pacers and 76ers have all expressed interest in Lance Stephenson.

The Pacers declined to pick up their team option on Born Ready for the 2018-19 season, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer, but it seems they aren't opposed to a reunion. Stephenson's contract situation likely won't work itself out until some of the bigger free agent names come off the board, but it's unlikely he'll be much of a factor in fantasy hoops, regardless of where he winds up.
Jul 1 - 3:20 PM

The Timberwolves, Jazz, Spurs, Rockets, Pelicans and Knicks have all expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Trevor Booker.

Booker is a quality backup big man who could help any one of these teams with some frontcourt depth, but he'll be a non-factor in fantasy hoops next season.

The Knicks have put a one-year offer on the table for Mario Hezonja, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

It's expected to be for a portion of the midlevel exception, so that would put this offer at around a maximum of $8.6 million. It makes sense for both sides because the Knicks do not want to put money on their books for next summer, and Mario gets to show what he can do on a shorthanded team. Plus, Mario showing he can play PF is a big part of this for his potential value for the team.
Jul 1 - 1:51 PM

The Knicks had a meeting with free agent Mario Hezonja, according to Michael Scotto of The Athletic.

A lot of teams are in on Super Mario, and the Knicks figure to be one of them. The Knicks almost certainly don't want to go long term on Hezonja, but that might interest Mario to allow him to showcase his talents for a bigger deal on his next one.

The Knicks are among at least five teams with interest in Anthony Tolliver, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

The stretch four is arguably the biggest need around the league this summer, so it makes sense a lot of teams are looking to sign Tolliver. He may look for a min deal with a team like Golden State, or the Knicks could sign him on a one-year deal as a stopgap PF.

Robert Williams has workouts scheduled with the Knicks, Bulls and Hornets.

Williams put in averages of 10.4 points, 9.2 boards and a whopping 2.6 swats per contest on 63.2% shooting in his sophomore season with Texas A&M, and he's your prototypical big man in the modern NBA as an uber-athletic, 6-10, 240-pound big man with a 7-5 wingspan. He's an elite shot blocker and lob target, although he's not much of a scorer and does tend to bite on fakes. He's a boom-or-bust guy that is projected to go in the 7-13 range.
Jun 6 - 12:22 PM

Mikal Bridges is scheduled for workouts with the Knicks and 76ers.

Bridges has already had workouts with the Hornets and Bulls, but it'll be interesting to see how his workout in New York goes with early reporting indicating that the Knicks are already high on him. Bridges put in averages of 17.7 points, 5.3 boards, 1.9 dimes, 2.6 treys, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game in his final season with Villanova, so New York would be a good potential landing spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops.
Jun 4 - 6:03 PM

Trae Young will work out for the Knicks on Tuesday.

The Knicks will come on the board with the No. 10 overall selection in the 2018 NBA draft and Young is expected to go somewhere within that range, although it would be a bit strange to seeNew York add another point guard considering they invested a top-8 selection on Frank Ntilikina last season and they'll also have Emmanuel Mudiay on the books next year. That said, there is a lot of upside with Young, so maybe New York goes with talent over need.
Jun 3 - 3:10 PM

The Knicks are expected to interview Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard for their head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN's Zach Lowe.

Howard joins David Blatt, Mike Budenholzer, Mark Jackson, James Borrego, David Fizdale, Jerry Stackhouse, Kenny Smith, Jay Larranaga and Mike Woodson as known candidates on New York's list, but it's not yet clear where the Knicks are in their quest to find the right individual. For what it's worth, Stackhouse, Fizdale, and Budenholzer are believed to have made strong impressions.

The Knicks are expected to interview David Blatt for their head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

If you're keeping track at home, that's now five names that have been publicly connected to the position: Blatt, David Fizdale, Mike Woodson, Jerry Stackhouse, and Mark Jackson. Blatt should be considered a legitimate candidate, but we wouldn't put him ahead of any other individual at this point in the process.
Apr 15 - 3:04 PM

The Knicks have received permission to interview Clippers assistant Mike Woodson for their head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Knicks Twitter is already up in arms about the news, and it took all of 10 minutes to achieve that impressive feat. We would be shocked if Woodson winds up again leading the franchise, so take this development with a major grain of salt. In a follow-up tweet, Wojnarowski reports that the Knicks are finalizing plans to meet with "three of the top candidates" for the open job in David Fizdale, Mark Jackson, and Jerry Stackhouse. It's notable that Woodson's name is omitted from that list.
Apr 15 - 2:25 PM

Denzel Valentine cooled off in 26 minutes on Saturday, finishing a lopsided loss vs. Boston with just five points, five rebounds, a steal, and a 3-pointer on 1-of-3 shooting.

Valentine had back-to-back nice games coming into this one, but he just couldn't get it going in a tough matchup vs. the Celtics. If you picked Valentine up this week, give him a chance to right the ship in the upcoming week ahead with matchups vs. the Bucks, Knicks, and Pacers before making any decisions. That being said, Zach LaVine's (knee) return will further crowd the picture, so don't get too reliant on Valentine for anything.
