Knicks willing to move Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported Thursday that New York is looking to deal its more experienced players to make room for its younger stars. “In conversations this week with teams, the Knicks have expressed a willingness to trade some of their veteran players,” Windhorst said on NBA Today. “That includes Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, Alec Burks, guys like this.”

Thibs rolled with the starters for 6-plus minutes as the Heat went up 26 — Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson. That lineup is minus-11.5 per 100 possessions on the season, but has played the third-most minutes of any lineup in the NBA. – 9:22 PM

Back to back possessions from Duncan Robinson
Fantastic defense on Kemba on one end
Three off the DHO on the other end
As I said before, this drop coverage favors him heavy – 7:49 PM

Kemba Walker this morning tried to make sure he was not misquoted aspiring reporter, Mitchell Robinson who came over and listened to an answer by Walker about balance and shouted, “It’s a battle” Kemba corrects him, “that’s not what I said though, yo.” He left out “Relax, Mitch.” – 2:34 PM

A hornet named Kemba — overt NBA reference or too much basketball? pic.twitter.com/BjTiyzBj4H4:48 PM
