New York Knicks and former No. 2 overall pick Michael Beasley are nearing agreement on a one-year deal, a league source told @BBallInsiders.

Beasley has quietly become a quality role player. Would have preferred 2 years or 1 with a team option #Knicks
Solid signing,  
Keith : 8/8/2017 3:19 pm : link
but agreed, why 1 year? Maybe that's all Beasley would sign for?

He has a rep for being very, very fond of weed but last 2 seasons 19.1 PER, .102 WS/48. Probably steal minutes from Kuz.
He's a significantly

I don't think very highly of Kuz.

Actually a really good signing for the Knicks. He played really well for the Bucks. Strange they didnt want him back.

stays on as a scout, Knicks also hire Fred Cofield as a scout, both per Begley
Cofield  
DanMetroMan : 8/8/2017 4:25 pm : link
The seven-foot Embiid is a freshman out of Kansas in the NCAA whose skill set has already drawn comparisons with those of NBA greats Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, and Tim Duncan. Cofield is definitely impressed with his one-of-a-kind ward. “I’ve never seen this kind of athlete, maybe ever,” said Cofield in an interview with NBA TV. “His athleticism is off the charts. He’s got a tremendous work ethic.” The 6-3 former NBA cager helped Ginebra San Miguel reach the finals of the 1996 Governors Cup but was replaced by Derrick Rucker prior to Game Four against Alaska, which went on to complete its grand slam. Now 52, Cofield, who played for a few seasons with the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls, is training several prospects ahead of the NBA Draft. But one player who clearly stands out is Embiid, who declared for the NBA Draft after just a year with the Wildcats. “Anybody who knows him knows he can shoot the ball. He can shoot the ball, he has great touch around the basket, and he can shoot the 15-footer,” said Cofield.

Thanks DMM

So, this is a pretty effective makeover. Now I wonder what the sticking point was with Griffin if they let their second choice put his own guys in place.

Griffen didn't really want the job and was just using Alan Houston name recognition for a convenient excuse. Kind of hard to get the same reaction if he had used Steve Mills as a reason

It is a legit question. Lance and Kuz. Not great, but if Melo is playing 38 minutes a game it's just 10 minutes for the two of them. You think they are bringing in Beasley for those 10 minutes per game? Possible, I guess.
I forgot about lance.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/8/2017 10:29 pm : link
I wish the team would forget about him too.

Though I think leaning on Melo for 38 minutes shouldn't happen. He's already shown an annoying tendency to break down over a season.
No way Melo is on the team

Italianju : 8/9/2017 6:39 am : link
they dont expect melo around. They already talked about playing Lee/THJR together at times so some SF minutes goes to them. Beasley can play some PF as well so he might be KP's backup more then a SF. Although im not sure where KOQ gets minutes then (at least for the 15 games that Noah is healthy and backing up WH. You would think the knicks at least had to give Beasley an idea that he would get some solid PT.
they have to trade lee or melo

i like lee and think he could be a good vet to the rooks but i wouldnt mind dealing him...

melo/lance/kuz

willy/noah

team looks pretty full as of right now...

more of a CBA quirk than anything. I think the second he picks up the option he becomes tradeable. But yeah, dumb contract on many levels.

I think it's both a random move and they're still trying to see what's out there for Melo. But I don't think anything happens with Melo until they get closer to camp. August and early September is really the closest the NBA gets to downtime where not much happens.
I think it was a right talent, right price move

nothing about Melo. More about Kuz, Lance, KOQ.
Also any word on Plumlee?

I'd like to see him back here. He did the little things, and he did them well. He sets a good pick.
i dont see melo being traded unless he opens up his list

"The Knicks are among several teams in touch with free agent big man Marshall Plumlee, per league sources, ESPN's Ian Begley writes. "... [Plumlee] expects to make a decision on his next team shortly. The Knicks have several big men in their rotation and it's unclear if there would be a roster/rotation spot for Plumlee, who impressed coaches with his development and work ethic over the past two seasons."

Nice read. Thanks for sharing.

You get the vague sense of a real culture shift around the team.

I'm cautiously optimistic.
