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.

The Bulls and the Hawks are reportedly the most likely landing spots for Jahlil Okafor.

These are some of the few teams that would make sense for Okafor, but thus far, they haven't come forth with an enticing offer for Philly, as the 76ers would like to secure a draft pick in any deal sending away the former No. 3 overall selection. Phoenix and New York have also been rumored to have interest in Okafor, but those teams are already loaded in their frontcourt and it's tough to see a deal going through where the numbers would work.

The Knicks see Archie Goodwin as a potential free agent target.

After a mildly underwhelming summer league and the Allen Crabbe trade, the Nets waived Goodwin last month. He probably isn't going to be able to develop a jumper, but he could get on the floor for his defense and his dribble penetration. Goodwin figures to at least get a camp invite.

The Knicks see Jarrett Jack as a potential free agent addition.

The Knicks basically missed on a free agent point guard and were only able to bring in Ramon Sessions. Jack suffered a torn meniscus last year to end his 2016-17 campaign, which stings even more after a season-ending ACL tear in 2015-16. Jack is 33 years old and may have a tougher time overcoming these knee injuries than some younger players.

Kyrie Irving has reportedly been irked by the Cavs giving preferential treatment to LeBron James.

In addition to no longer wanting to live under the immense shadow of King James, Irving has reportedly at times been perturbed with how the franchise treats him and LBJ differently, such as allowing James to have friends travel with him on the team plane without awarding Irving the same luxuries. He was also particularly upset when he learned that his name had been included in trade talks for Paul George and Jimmy Butler this summer, and at this point, it looks as though this is a bridge that cannot be mended.

Brandon Knight is "one name that came up in conversation" between the Knicks and Suns, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.com.

Knight's trade value is almost negative at this point as the Suns would likely want to get him off their books to play guys like Tyler Ulis or really any other young guard. The former Buck and Piston is under contract until 2019-20 for a total of around $44 million, so the remaining money on the deal could help in a Carmelo Anthony trade. The Suns would probably do this for any decent asset, so it's more about the Knicks and if they think a change of scenery can help Knight.

While the Knicks have had internal discussions regarding signing unrestricted free agent Rajon Rondo, they have not yet reached out to his agent.

Derrick Rose remains in play for the Knicks, and they've also been linked to Shelvin Mack, so it's pretty clear that they'd like to bring in a veteran to help mentor Frank Ntilikina during his rookie year. Thus far, Rondo has been linked to the Knicks and the Lakers, with Los Angeles seemingly having more interest in signing No. 9. In terms of fantasy hoops, neither of these places would be ideal for Rondo.

The Knicks and Lakers are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Dion Waiters.

Waiters has already met with the Heat, and he's scheduled to interview with the Lakers on Wednesday, but we likely won't see much traction here until more of the bigger name free agents come off the board. In terms of fantasy hoops, Miami would probably be the best potential landing spot for Waiters.

Rajon Rondo reportedly remains "very interested" in signing with the Lakers.

With George Hill signing with Sacramento, and Darren Collison joining the Pacers, Rondo is running out of potential free agent destinations. The Knicks could still be an option for No. 9, and it's worth pointing out that the Lakers haven't followed up with Rondo since their initial talks, but Rondo's camp expects to get some more clarity in the coming days with these other PGs coming off the market. For what it's worth, it does appear Rondo is ready to embrace a mentorship role.

Justin Holiday has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $9 million deal with the Bulls.

Holiday was linked to the Bulls and Wolves, the Knicks reportedly hoped to retain him, and he expressed interest in playing alongside his brother Jrue Holiday, who recently inked a long-term deal with the Pelicans. Chicago got him in the end, and this could possibly foreshadow Dwyane Wade heading out of town with the Bulls in re-build mode. Holiday's fantasy value hinges largely on how the rest of the offseason plays out for Chicago.

Free agent Dion Waiters will meet with the Lakers on Sunday night, according to Michael Scotto.

Waiters has previously been linked to the Bulls, Knicks and Kings, in addition to the Heat. He suggested that he might accept a discounted salary to stay in Miami, where he thrived last season, but that depends on the offers he gets elsewhere. Stay tuned.

The Lakers reportedly remain interested in unrestricted free agent Rajon Rondo.

Thus far, Rondo has been linked to the Knicks, Pacers and Clippers, so the Lakers would be one of the worst places for him to land in terms of fantasy potential. It's also unclear if Rondo would be interested in taking on a mentorship role in Los Angeles, as he didn't seem all that thrilled playing that sort of role with the Bulls last season.
Sun, Jul 2, 2017 07:06:00 PM

The Knicks have "expressed interest" in free agent PG Shelvin Mack, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

A recent report suggested that New York isn't confident Frank Ntilikina is ready to be a starter this season, which makes sense since he'll be 19 years old on July 28. Mack could be a stopgap option if the Knicks don't want to retain Derrick Rose, whom they reportedly still view as a "serious option."

Dion Waiters has been talking to the Knicks, Bulls and Kings.

If the Heat can't bring in Gordon Hayward, Miami would be the heavy favorite to bring back some Philly Cheese. Waiters has also said he is willing to take a hometown discount, which makes sense after he had his best year as a pro.

The Knicks are unlikely to sign unrestricted free agent George Hill, a source told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Berman as the voice of reason is a new look, but it's hard to disagree with the logic in this spot. New York probably doesn't have quite enough available money to offer Hill an enticing deal, so it's more likely than not that Hill will look elsewhere for his newest team. Per Berman, the Nuggets and Pacers are two teams vying for Hill's services.

The Knicks have reached out to UFA Rajon Rondo, sources told ESPN's Ian Begley.

New York is shopping for point guard depth, but this probably isn't the target most of the fan base had their sights set on. Regardless, Rondo's market will likely further develop once the top names come off the board. There is no guarantee that RR is able to land a starting job, either.
Sat, Jul 1, 2017 03:18:00 PM

The Knicks have reached out to both Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

The Knicks, who are desperate to add a veteran point guard, have seemingly been in contact with nearly all decent, available PG's remaining on the open market. Collison has been solid, if unspectacular, since entering the league in 2009. Last season, he started 64 games for the Kings, averaging 13.2 points, 4.6 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 3-pointers, while shooting 47.6 percent from the floor, 41.7 percent from downtown and 86.0 percent from the free-throw line.

Michael Carter-Williams received a phone call from the Rockets at the start of free agency.

ESPN's Marc Spears is reporting that MCW is also drawing interest from the Knicks, Thunder, Mavericks, Pelicans and Hornets. Carter-Williams is coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged career-lows in points (6.6), assists (2.5), FG percentage (.366) and assist rate (.200). However, the former Rookie of the Year is still just 25 years old and possesses a rare combination of size and skill.
Sat, Jul 1, 2017 11:55:00 AM

Ian Begley of ESPN is reporting that George Hill is currently the Knicks "top target."

The Knicks need to land a starting point guard this offseason. However, New York has less than $15 million in cap room and Hill's annual salary was expected to be in the neighborhood of $18 to $20 million. It's possible the Knicks could trade Courtney Lee or Carmelo Anthony to clear up cap space. Hill and Kyle Lowry are the last remaining top-quality starting point guards available.

The Knicks reached out to Suns restricted FA Alan Williams on Friday, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

Williams is an undersized center who stands 6'9", and his game doesn't necessarily translate to today's NBA -- he shot 51.7 percent from the field last season, and 62.5 percent from the free throw line, without making a single 3-pointer. He'll be a fantasy pariah no matter where he lands during the 2017-18 season.
