Former Warriors point guard signs one-year deal with Knicks

Coming off two injury-mared seasons in Brooklyn and New Orleans, veteran Jarrett Jack has found a new home.

The former Warriors point guard signed a deal with the New York Knicks on Friday.

According to ESPN, the deal is for one year and is not guaranteed.

Last season, the 33-year-old played in just two games with the Pelicans. The year before, he appeared in just 32 games with the Nets.

Jack spent one season in Oakland, averaging 12.9 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds over 79 games in 2012-13.

The Knicks will be Jack's eighth team in 13 years.

Kevin Durant crushes hopes and dreams of Knicks fans everywhere

Kevin Durant's summer of court dedications continued recently with a stop in New York City.

After christening a new court at the East Side Community High School in Manhattan, Durant stopped by the House of Hoops in Harlem.

Durant documented the whole trip in a YouTube video post on Tuesday.

While Durant was taking a photo with attendees, a hopeful Knicks fan had a question for the NBA Finals MVP.

"Yo, when are you coming to the Knicks, man?" the fan asked.

"Never," Durant said loudly with a smile on his face.

The Washington, D.C. native took another shot at New York City during the visit.

"NYC, the so-called Mecca of basketball. I'll say it's second in line Mecca of basketball next to Washington, D.C. But I still got love for NYC," Durant said.

Durant and the Warriors make their lone trip to Madison Square Garden to face the Knicks on Feb. 26, 2018.

Report: Kyrie Irving 'very badly' wants to play for Knicks

Kyrie Irving is itching to get to the Big Apple.

Irving 'very badly' wants to play for the Knicks, according to ESPN's Pablo Torre.

Irving reportedly requested a trade from the Cavs during a meeting with management on July 7.

The four-time All-Star would prefer to be shipped to the Spurs, Timberwolves, Heat or Knicks, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Although Irving was born in Australia, he grew up in West Orange, New Jersey -- which is about 20 miles away from Madison Square Garden.

The Cavs have been trying to get a hold of Irving, but the 25-year old is not talking to anybody from the organization, according to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.

Irving averaged 25.2 points and 5.8 assists per game last season, shooting over 47 percent from the field and 40 percent from deep.

In the 2017 NBA Finals, he registered 29.4 points over the five games.

The Knicks owe Joakim Noah over $17.7 million next season, over $18.5 million in 2018-19 and nearly $19.3 million in 2019-20.

The Knicks also just signed Tim Hardaway Jr. (who they traded in June 2015) to a 4-year contract worth nearly $71 million.
