Knicks have signed forward Orlando Sanchez to a one-year deal.

The Knicks are bad enough that Sanchez could actually see the floor some this season, but there is virtually no chance he contributes to any fantasy teams this season.

Shannon Brown is simply invited to camp with the Miami Heat; his contract is not guaranteed.

Brown will look to gain a roster spot by a solid performance in training camp, but even if he lands a contract it is unlikely he will be able to make a lasting impact worth noting for fantasy purposes.

J.R. Smith says one of his goals for the 2014-15 season is to be a leader.

Smith endured a down season a year ago, but appears poised to make a big comeback and take more of a leadership role in the team's backcourt. The Knicks shooting guard averaged 14.5 pints and 3.0 rebounds over 32.7 minutes per game during the 2013-14 season.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo has decided to play for the Knicks D-League team over playing in Europe next season.

This decision will allow Antetokounmpo the chance to join the Knicks sooner rather than later. He won't be paid or under contract to the Knicks, but he will be playing under coaches that will be taking direction from the New York front office. It may be awhile before Antetokounmpo makes the main roster, but at least he is closer to the Knicks playing in the D-League.

Knicks have acquired forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw from the Kings in exchange for guard Wayne Ellington and forward Jeremy Tyler.

A depth trade for both teams only Travis Outlaw averaged more than 10 minutes per game last seasons with 16.9 minutes for the Kings last season.

The New York Knicks reportedly have offered a package of players that include Amar'e Stoudemire, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Iman Shumpert in exchange for Kevin Love

The Knicks will likely leave this offer on the table and hope the T-Wolves bite, but with the talks between Minnesota and Cleveland needing to wait the 30 days after Andrew Wiggins signed, they'll likely hold off unless they're totally blown away with an offer.

Knicks announce they've waived swingman Shannon Brown.

For some reason the 2.2 points and 1.0 rebounds averaged over 29 games last season didn't interest the Knicks (shocking...) and they have decided to move on. Brown may be picked up by another team but he likely won't have a significant role.

ESPN reports that the New York Knicks are looking to trade one of their guards, with J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, and new acquired Shane Larkin on the table.

Depending on what a prospective trade partner would be willing to give up would determine who the team would part ways with. All three players bring a different skill set to the table, but with newly acquired Jose Calderon running the point guard position, the Knicks may want to part with Smith considering Calderon's offensive abilities holding onto the more defensively sound Shumpert. Either way, expect one, if not two, of these players to be on a different team by the start of the season.

All-NBA Vegas Summer League 2nd Team: Tim Hardaway Jr. (NYK), Rudy Gobert (UTA), Jordan McRae (PHI), T.J. Warren (PHX), and Russ Smith (NOP).

Hardaway Jr., who averaged 22.8 points over five games, may be the bigger name on this squad but his game is too one-dimensional to warrant rostering him in most leagues outside of some daily league contests from time-to-time. The player that intrigues me the most is Gobert who could have more overall fantasy value in the short-term as well as the long-term than anyone on this list. T.J. Warren comes in as the second best dynasty league target followed by Russ Smith whom I would be trying to trade as fast as you could if you do draft him in your dynasty league as there is more potential for him to be a bust than not, but that said I'd rather have him than say the Hea'ts Shabazz Napier from this draft class.

Carmelo Anthony took less than maximum contract from New York Knicks.

At the end of the day, Anthony took less money to stay with the Knicks, as he showed his loyalty to both the Knicks and the New York area fans. Taking less money will allow the Knicks to be more active in the free agent market, although it is unlikely they will be making any big splashes this off-season.
