New York Teams

The Giants are $6,155,606 under the salary cap, according to NFLPA records. That is for 73 players and doesn't include the four signings (Mauro, Webb, Latimer and Wynn) from Monday.

Saints LB Demario Davis (right) knows how to handle himself in a board room. Representing the Players' Coalition, Davis speaks passionately about criminal-justice reform — and he's not shy about pressing lawmakers with pointed questions about the issue. He's lobbying at the New York State capitol in Albany.

On the Joakim Noah situation, I wouldn't dismiss the idea of Noah returning to the Knicks if management makes a coaching change and the next NYK coach is open to bringing Noah back.

NHL teams most likely to bounce back in 2018-19

Some teams had a rough campaign in 2017-18 through factors that some might consider unlucky, including injuries and young players hitting an unexpected wall. As a result, they're the teams to watch as we take a way-too-early look ahead to next season.

A picture posted on Sunday by Bleacher Report's Yaron Weitzman shows Kristaps Porzingis shooting at a court in his apartment building five weeks after ACL surgery. The Knicks and Jeff Hornacek don't seem concerned by it. "Once you have a surgery like that – I had not that extensive of a knee surgery – you want to get out there, you want to shoot," Hornacek said. "I'm sure he's being smart about that stuff. If you're just standing there shooting that's not going to have any effect."

Jeff Hornacek on Trey Burke, who is averaging 10 points and 3.5 assists on 51% shooting in 18 minutes per game as a Knick: "He might not be as big as other guys but he knows how to get to spots and get his shot off. And I think he's playing the whole package now.... Sometimes it takes a few years to figure that out in this league. Trey's been great for us scoring the ball, shooting a high percentage but I've been just as impressed by his defensive effort. He's trying to get after it, trying to pick guys up. We're asking him to put a little pressure on those guys. He talks and helps (on) defense and he's also getting some of his teammates involved. He's playing the all around game and when you do that you're going to be in this league for a long time."

Steve Clifford offers a great observation on the insulation some players are surrounded by when speaking about Willy Hernangomez over the weekend: "Frankly if you were one place and you didn't play much, I think that if you want to play more in the next place — I would work harder, do more, kill myself, that's the way I would see it," the coach said. "Unfortunately, in the world the players live in, they don't hear that. Instead, it's the (fault of the) organization, it's the coach, the assistant, that isn't working with him right. No, come on. I tell our guys that all the time. They're surrounded by people who tell them what they want to hear. The reality is this — he wasn't playing here for a reason. You know, he's going to have to change things."

Before the Knicks' win, Jeff Hornacek was asked how the Joakim Noah situation will be resolved. "I'm not sure. In the summer, (Knicks GM) Scott (Perry) and (Knicks president) Steve (Mills) talking with him. I guess that's how it will get resolved."

Trey Burke's quotes here after the Knicks' win over the Bulls are another reminder that players don't play a role in tanking, management does: "It means the world because it just doesn't feel good to lose," Burke said of the Knicks' two-game winning streak. "Guys love the game. It don't feel good to lose. It don't feel good to go home after a loss, racking up losses after losses. When you win it's your reward for the hard work you put in, your reward to how far you've come…. I think (tanking is) just something that is unacceptable in my eyes as a player…. I understand from the fans' standpoint. But here in this locker room, we're going out there to win games."

The Knicks beat Chicago, 110-92, behind 22 points from Tim Hardaway Jr. With the win, they fall 1.5 games behind Chicago for 8th place in the Lottery Standings. New York has won back-to-back games for the first time since Jan. 26-Jan. 30. Nine Knicks had at least nine points and the club held Chicago to 3-for-30 shooting from beyond the arc.

Nice job by the Knicks, who honored Army Staff Sergeant Alfredo De Los Santos and his daughter Josely De Los Santos tonight during the game against the Bulls, presenting them with a $10,000 scholarship for Josely. Alfredo De Los Santos was honored with many commendations, including the Purple Heart and Bronze Star, and retired after being wounded in Afghanistan in 2008.

Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17 third-quarter points on 5-for-7 shooting to help New York build a 16-point. If they hold on to the lead, NYK will win consecutive games for the first time since 1/26-1/30.
