Knicks’ Derek Fisher Fires Back at People Complaining About Team’s Win Streak

Knicks’ Derek Fisher Fires Back at People Complaining About Team’s Win Streak Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Knicks seemed all but certain to get the most ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery by securing the worst record in the NBA. But after a two-game winning streak that is no longer guaranteed, and head coach Derek Fisher doesn't care. "I'm sure people are upset with us," Fisher said. "But I don't think you can ever go out there and basically try and not play your best. Those two things don't go together." Securing the worst record gives you a 25% chance of getting the number one pick, and guarantees a top-4 pick. If the Thunder beat the Timberwolves on Wednesday, they clinch the worst record in the league. If the Knicks beat the Pistons and the Sixers lose to the Heat on Wednesday, then they tie for the second-worst mark in the NBA. "That has no bearing on these guys' lives and their careers and their livelihoods -- who we pick next year," Fisher said. "This is about them, and they went out and played that way." The Knicks haven't had the number one pick since 1985 when they drafted Patrick Ewing. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Pistons’ Greg Monroe Denies Report That He’ll Sign with Knicks this Offseason

Pistons’ Greg Monroe Denies Report That He’ll Sign with Knicks this Offseason Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Detroit Pistons forward/center Greg Monroe is a restricted free agent at the end of the season, and is expected to cash in with his new contract. Despite a recent report, Monroe denies that he's already pick his new team, the New York Knicks. According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Monroe signing with the Knicks is “about as close to a done deal as you can get.” Monroe is denying any such agreement. Agreeing to a deal before the free agency is illegal in NBA, let alone before a season ends.  “You write it’s a done deal, there must be another Greg Monroe around here that I don’t know about, because I haven’t agreed to anything,” Monroe told Mlive.com's David Mayo. “This stuff right here, it’s just unfortunate that we have to talk about it,” Monroe added. “I know we have to. But I talk to my agent every day, and I know for sure, I’m 100-percent, 1,000-percent confident, that he hasn’t done anything. If (the Knicks) have interest, maybe they might have commented on that. But I haven’t even gotten to that place yet.” A five-year NBA veteran, Monroe is averaging 16.1 points and 10.4 rebounds per game with the Pistons this year.

Jackson sent a letter and video message to season ticket holders about the state of franchise.

"We have made key roster moves to free up significant cap space that will provide us greater flexibility to acquire talent in this summer's free agency," Jackson continued. "And for the first time in many years, we expect to have a top pick in the NBA Draft this June. "These are key steps to building a roster of players that have both the talent and character to win in New York and who, alongside Carmelo Anthony, will become a team that can become a consistent winner," he added.

Former Knick Anthony Mason Passes Away

Former Knick Anthony Mason Passes Away iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Former New York Knick Anthony Mason has passed away Saturday, according to ESPN.

Mason played five seasons with the Knicks and was a key member of the 1994 four team that brought New York to the NBA Finals. As part of the team headlined by Patrick Ewing and John Starks, Mason won the NBA's sixth-man during the 1994-1995 season. A third round pick in 1988 out of Tennessee State, Mason was selected by the Portland Trailblazers. He would play 13 seasons in the NBA. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Knicks Agree To Buyout of Stoudemire’s Contract

Knicks Agree To Buyout of Stoudemire’s Contract NBA via New York Knicks(NEW YORK) -- The New York Knicks and Amar'e Stoudemire have agreed to a contractual buyout. Stoudemire was in the final year of a five-year, $99.7 million contact and after clearing waivers will be free to sign with any team. He was scheduled to make $23.4 million this season. ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the Dallas Mavericks appear to be the front-runner to sign the 6'10," 32-year-old power forward.  Other suitors include the Golden State Warriors -- Stoudemire has a relationship with head coach Steve Kerr -- and the Phoenix Suns. Stoudemire earned his sixth All-Star appearance during the 2010-2011 season with the Knicks, but since that season a change in offensive philosophy and injuries have limited his effectiveness. In 36 games this season, Stoudemire is averaging 12 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Walt “Clyde” Frazier: If Melo’s Shut Down Other Knicks Will Get Opportunity Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Hall of Famer Walt "Clyde" Frazier believes that other Knicks players will step up and do their best to compete if Carmelo Anthony is shut down after the All-Star break. Frazier, who is a member of the Knicks MSG broadcast, knows it will be a tough decision for Anthony, but is confident the rest of the team won't pack it in for first-year head coach Derek Fisher. "Once they know that [Anthony] is done, it's going to dawn on the players, this is an opportunity for me," Frazier told ABC Sports Radio on Friday. "These guys get paid too, just like Melo. I think the players are really going to be galvanized by that." "When Melo has been out sometimes the team has played better without him," Frazier continued. "Everybody thinks now I have a better chance to score." Frazier will also be a judge in the Sprite NBA All-Star dunk contest on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. "Everyone likes to come here because this is the stage," Frazier said of the bright lights of New York. "It always brings out the best in players." So what is Frazier looking for in crowning the best dunker? "You've got to be very creative," he said. "The wow factor has to be the captivating thing."

Cavs, Knicks, Thunder Complete Three Team Trade

Cavs, Knicks, Thunder Complete Three Team Trade National Basketball Association(NEW YORK) -- The New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Oklahoma City Thunder have completed a three-team trade headlined by Dion Waiters, Iman Shumpert, and J.R. Smith. In the deal completed late Monday night, the Cavaliers will obtain Smith and Shumpert from the Knicks, who in turn will receive three players with non-guaranteed contracts -- Alex Kirk and Lou Amundson from the Cavaliers and Lance Thomas from the Thunder. Oklahoma City will receive Dion Waiters from Cleveland. Before the deal was completed, Cleveland officials spoke with LeBron James about his willingness to play alongside Smith, according to ESPN. The Cavaliers are also receiving a 2015 protected first-round pick from Oklahoma City.  The Knicks are receiving the Cavaliers' 2019 second round pick, though the motivation for the move was more about financial flexibility: By trading Smith, the Knicks no longer face his $6.4 million option next season, and may have more than $30 million in cap space for free agency.

Wizards Cruise Past the Knicks, 102-91

Wizards Cruise Past the Knicks, 102-91 NBA via Washington Wizards(NEW YORK) -- Washington Wizards point guard showed a national audience just why he's become one of the best guards in the NBA on Christmas Day as he led the team past the New York Knicks for a 102-91 victory. Wall finished the game with 24 points, six rebounds, and 11 assists. He leads all Eastern Conference guards in assists, and second overall in the NBA. It was Wall's ninth game this season with at least 20 points and 10 assists, the most in the NBA. "I'm just a feisty guy that likes to compete," Wall said. "And I want to win games." Even though they only won by 11 points, the game was never close. The Wizards led as many as 22 points during the contest and never trailed at any point. Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony did all he could to keep the team in it, as he scored a game-high 34 points. The Wizards improved to 20-8 while the Knicks fell to 5-26.

Knicks Guard Iman Shumpert Out 3 Weeks with Shoulder Injury

Knicks Guard Iman Shumpert Out 3 Weeks with Shoulder Injury Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The bad news keeps coming for the New York Knicks as guard Iman Shumpert will miss the next few weeks with a dislocated left shoulder. Shumpert suffered the injury during the second quarter of the team's win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night after colliding with Celtics' forward Jeff Green. Now in his fourth year in the NBA, the 24-year-old Shumpert is one of the team's best defenders. In 24 games, he's averaging 9.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game. According to the team, Shumpert will be reevaluated after three weeks to see if and when he'll be ready to return to the court. "We don't want to jeopardize the remaining part of his season, so we'll have to see," Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said. Filling in for Shumpert will likely be second-year guard Tim Hardaway Jr. He's averaging 9.9 points per game this season so far. Guard J.R. Smith is still dealing with a small partial tear of the plantar fascia and is day-to-day. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
