    We are rumored about a month ago to be interested in KCP, he's not a realistic nor fit at this point considering our circumstances. We might as get younger while the getting is good. I knew Orlando was mismanaging him, 2 other players we should be targeting if we shed some salary are Julius Randle, Alex Len, Nerlens Noel

    Getting Mudiay was huge once again as the needle moves heavily to rebuilding.

    It'll be interesting what Perry does with Hezonja since he was part of the front office that drafted him at 5. He shows flashes of that potential people saw in him today and I'd take a shot but if Perry decides to pass I'd have to respect his judgement since he's probably got the best read on the kid.

    This....The Knicks are about business, not basketball. I wanted something for all-star weekend and I copped a Durant jersey from his OKC days to go with my orange and blue Spike J’s. I am boycotting the Knicks until they can figure out how to put a decent, watchable product on the court. It ain’t that difficult. The Pacers traded their best player and are still 6 games over .500 and firmly in the playoffs. Those people in Indy are basketball crazy and won’t tolerate a loser. Dolan sell the team to an owner that cares about winning not just $$$$.

    Ah, Pacers fans suck. Pacers have had home playoff games that they couldn’t sell out. Bunch of N word saying punks sitting behind the Knicks bench during the Ewing era.

    Against the Wizards in the final game before the All-Star break, newly acquired point guard Emmanuel Mudiay will make his Garden debut in a Knicks uniform after two games on the road.

    “The best arena in the world,’’ Mudiay said. “It should be fun.’’

    This is either the start of a long marriage or a tryout that ends after next season when Mudiay becomes a restricted free agent.

    In two games at the Garden in his three-year career, Mudiay, the Nuggets’ 2015 lottery pick, averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 24 minutes. He actually had one of his best games this season in late October at the Garden, with 15 points and two steals in 20 minutes.


    “I’m excited to be here,’’ Mudiay said. “Somewhere I want to be. The love I’ve been getting, I’m trying to send it right back to them. All I can do is play as hard as I can for the fans of New York. It’s definitely a different atmosphere that brings out the best in you.’’

    Mudiay’s Knicks debut in Indianapolis was an eye-opening double-double (14 points, 10 assists) in 30 minutes, but he leveled off in Philadelphia on Monday (seven points and two assists in 19 minutes) and was part of the lackluster defense that allowed 76ers’ backup point guard T.J. McConnell to register his first career triple-double, along with six steals.

    Afterward, Mudiay said he twisted his right ankle early on, limiting his mobility. His right ankle bears watching as it has been a career-long issue.

    His year playing in China ended prematurely with an ankle injury and he has missed time in all three of his NBA seasons with sprains, all to his right ankle. He missed four games earlier this season with a right-ankle sprain.

    While his penetration and clever passing have been refreshing, the 21-year-old Mudiay has looked disoriented on defense. The Knicks didn’t hold a practice Tuesday coming off a back-to-back, so Mudiay hasn’t had a team practice. He said he has a vague concept of the Knicks’ defensive system.

    “I’m going to watch a lot of film,’’ Mudiay said of his Tuesday plans. “I’ll talk to coaches as much as I can and learn the system on defense. I’m used to the Denver play-calls defensively. So I got to adjust real quick to that. I don’t want to use that as an excuse, but you got to use team systems and what they’re trying to do. It’s been a little difference.”

    He’s also adjusting to new teammates, though he knew Michael Beasley from the Chinese league. He also once met backcourt mate Frank Ntilikina at a Basketball Without Borders event in Toronto.

    “It’s first the time meeting a lot of them; all of them except I knew Michael in China, but we didn’t know each other on a teammate level. I’ll figure out everybody here, but it’s going to take a couple of games,’’ he said.

    Already weaving a connection with center Kyle O’Quinn, Mudiay has fed him a couple of long passes for fast-break hoops. O’Quinn also launched an alley-oop pass for Mudiay to lay home in Philly.

    “I’ve told him to keep his head on a swivel. If his man has his back turned, I’m going to throw it up there for him,’’ Mudiay said. “[O’Quinn] had something going with Doug so I had to pick up that slack.’’

    Mudiay is expected to come off the bench Wednesday, but that should change Feb. 22 at Orlando in the first game after the All-Star break, when Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek has indicated he may replace veteran Jarrett Jack as starter with the Knicks currently eight games out of the East’s eighth playoff seed.

    Poor Mudiay are learning the Knicks headcoach doesn't have a defensive-plan nor do the coach have a offensive-plan.
    It's every player for himself under coach Hornacek clueless decision making.

    I would like to watch the pair of Mudiay n Frank development under headcoach Mark Jackson for the next two seasons .. plus keep Burke n Dotson for Mark Jackson to marinate into creatiive scoring role players off the bench.
