On being able to fit with Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell said, "He's established in this league and I am working to get there. I know I will learn from him and vice-versa, whatever I can teach him would be great too. I just want to compete, it starts with practice, us pushing each other will lead to the games and make it easier."

D'Angelo Russell did his best to try to move forward but said that he sees trade to Brooklyn as a "celebration." "I am going to take advantage of it to the fullest," Russell said. "And that's me being the leader right away. I am looking forward to the challenge. You saying my leadership is being questioned, this is an opportunity to make the best out of it."

Not a huge surprise here, but big man Marshall Plumlee will play for the Knicks in Summer League, per sources. Plumlee was signed as an undrafted free agent last season and many in the organization are high on him due in part to his potential, his energy and his professional approach. So it's not surprising that the club would like to continue to develop him. If Plumlee is under contract o. June 30, as expected, $100,000 of his deal for next season kicks in. His full contract becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster in late October.
