    “Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, and R.J. Barrett all had at least 20 points and 10 rebounds tonight. It’s the first time that three Knicks have had 20 & 10 in the same game since April 10, 1977, when Bob McAdoo, Walt Frazier, and Lonnie Shelton all did it.”

    I’m all for trading him... I just see no advantage in giving him away. Would I trade Morris for second rounders in 2023 and 2025? No.

    One thing about Miller is I think he's a more heady coach than Fiz. I remember that game where Fiz wasted his challenge in the 1st 2 mins of a game and the game turned into a close one where he could have used it at the end, I called him a dope for using his challenge so early.

    Miller on the other hand waited until the end to use his challenge on RJs foul of Burke's 3 at the end, Burke still got to shoot his FTs because the Knicks challenge was not upheld but thats what a good use of the rule is meant for. Others have called Miller a better tactician than Fiz, my bet is his better in game mgt results in winning some of these close games and a better record than we had under Fizdale.

    (2017-2018) our best was again Emmanuel Mudiay ranking 60 @3.2 per game!


    isn't that strange that through the years we are not being able to have a player who could crack the top 25 or at least 50 list of assists!! I know that the calibar of the supporting cast will affect that too, but come on.....
    Don't see Ntilikina as a starting PG, supposedly a pass first PG 3.2 dimes that ranks 67th in assists, that's 3rd string PG good. His shooting avg also has come back to his median avg judging by the last few games I'm guessing but I'm going to check on it.

    Nits.376 FG% vs..364 FG% his rookie season. Not what I'd expect of an 8th pick 3rd yr in the league. One of the guys that should be on the trade block for a 1st rounder imo.

    I will say this, congrats to interim head coach Mike Miller on getting his first win. I bet even he didn’t expect that he would be an NBA head coach a year ago.

    “ But according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Morris turned down an even more lucrative offer from the Clippers, worth roughly $41 million, earlier in free agency. After that, the Clippers shifted their attention to the trade market and acquired Moe Harkless.”

    He turned down big money, to play in LA and probably win a title... for this?

    I guess you’re right, if there’s no plan to re-sign him. Get what you can...

    In the Knicks past 3 off-season of signing FA .. Marcus Morris Sr. happen to be the only legit (Keeper) FA the Mills/Perry show brang on board in their 3 year search for a star FA.
    It's like Tiger said .. If Morris did not turn down the Spurs (and Clippers) offers to sign on to the Knicks, the $70M spent by Mills/Perry in the off-season on FA would've been the 3rd off-season in a row the Knicks selected Tier-3 project FA players that performance are not worthy of being a keeper for a 2nd season.
    Morris & Gibson's 25 game performance are the only legit KEEPERS I would want for next season.
    Why the Knicks FO didn't give veteran starter center DeAndre Jordan a 2 to 4 yr extension last season?
    Are the reason the Knicks are a consistent tank-tank LOTTERY team !!!

    The Best move the Knicks FO could make the remainder of the season are to give Marcus Morris a 2 or more season extension to remain a part of rookie RJ Barrett's NBA growth (Randle is killing me) !!!

    "I'm aware of that," Morris said. "It's part of the game, but like I said in the beginning, I love being in New York, win, lose or draw. I'm here to try and help turn this thing around. I'm not really looking to get traded, that's just my personal opinion."

    Morris scored a game-high 36 points in the win, shooting 5-for-9 from three and grabbing 10 rebounds in 36 minutes. Morris is now shooting a career-high 48.9 percent from three this season in 23 games, something that definitely increases his trade value.

    "That's my approach, but this is the NBA," Morris said. "I'd rather help turn this thing around. Melo (Carmelo Anthony) said it best: Some guys aren't built for New York. I'm built for New York. I'd rather be here. I'd rather help."
