In case you were wondering, Madison Square Garden CEO and Knicks owner James Dolan has no plans to sell any part of his ownership of the team. MSG president Doc O'Connor was asked on an earnings call if Dolan had any plans to sell a monitory stake in the Knicks.

No surprises among the 11: K Ross Martin, G Jarvis Harrison (5th round pick, 2015), WR Kyle Williams, G Jesse Davis, C Kyle Friend, LB Deion Barnes, DT Shelby Harris, DE Helve Matungulu, RB Lache Seastrunk, RB Terry Williams, TE Jason Vander Laan.
