    Fansided: New York Knicks: Top 10 career usage percentages in franchise history

    Star players have passed through the New York Knicks for decades. While it only resulted in two championships, these talents took a top mantle and either ran away with it or failed, including in some of the franchise's darkest times.

    These top players were prevalent in the team's offense, having the ball in their hands more than almost anyone else on the roster. The exact percentage of this is determined through usage rate and features the following 10 players on the franchise's all-time list:

    Carmelo Anthony, 31.7: Anthony's usage rate stands tall over all Knicks.

    Empire Sports Media: Allonzo Trier wants the New York Knicks to 'be better'

    In an interview with SNY's Ian Begley, New York Knicks guard Allonzo Trier was asked about the expectations for this upcoming season.

    Trier responded with, "Just come in and be better." He continued with the Knicks adding more 'talent across the board' as well" and there should be "no excuse" for them to be a better basketball team.

    Nothing Trier said was wrong. While some will look at this off-season as a failure for the Knicks, others can see the light.

    The Knicks added more talent, drafted well and have the veteran presence to improve from a league's worst record season.

    Fansided: New York Knicks: Frank Ntilikina wants to play with Kristaps Porzingis

    Few prospects are as polarizing in the 2017 NBA Draft as European point guard Frank Ntilikina. The New York Knicks have been consistently tied to the playmaker, but no one truly knows what to expect come draft night.

    Frank Ntilikina isn't tying himself to any one organization, but he's intrigued by the possibility of playing with Kristaps Porzingis.

    Ntilikina is currently ranked as the No. 10 overall prospect by DraftExpress and the No. 11 overall prospect by Chad Ford of ESPN Insider. He's comparable to Porzingis in that, while some feel he has star potential, others feel he could be a disastrous bust.

    Empire Sports Media: New York Knicks: Allonzo Trier knows the Knicks have gotten better

    While the New York Knicks didn't have the lucrative summer some thought they would, they did add several key pieces to the team. Losing out on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving surely won't help them succeed during the 2019-20 season. However, signing both Julius Randle and Marcus Morris should give us a hint of optimism and hope that they can finally be a team worth watching.

    Second-year undrafted guard, Allonzo Trier, will play a key role on the offensive side of the ball. He has worked tirelessly this off-season to improve his three-point shot, as the executives are looking for him to increase his attempts from beyond the arc due to his elevated hit-percentage last season.

    Posting and Toasting: 2019-20 Knicks Season Preview: Julius Randle

    If you're anything like me you know who Julius Randle is and you're pretty sure he's stronger than you, but what else is there to know about this guy? And how will he fit in with this year's Knicks?

    Let's talk about it.

    What's his full name?

    Julius Deion Randle. JDR for short. That's easy to remember because you can't spell Dr. J without JDR, and Julius Randle is the most electrifying talent this league has seen since the good doctor laced 'em up.

    That's wrong on like 16 different levels, but OK.

    Elite Sports NY: Westchester Knicks name Derrick Alston their new head coach

    The Westchester Knicks, the G League affiliate of the New York Knicks, have promoted assistant coach Derrick Alston to be their new head coach. That spot had been left vacant when former head coach Mike Miller was added to the Knicks' NBA coaching staff on Monday.

    Alston previously served as an assistant on Miller's staff. A native of The Bronx, Alston was a second-round pick of the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1994 NBA Draft. He played nearly two seasons in Philadelphia. He then played two games with the Atlanta Hawks in 1996 before spending over a decade on overseas courts.

    Buckets Over Broadway: New York Knicks: Top 10 VORP ratings in franchise history

    The New York Knicks have featured valuable players in their franchise's history, but just how much? It can be determined through Value Over Replacement Player (VORP), which estimates how a player would perform instead of a "replacement player." Basketball-Reference describes this as a "player on minimum salary or not a normal member of a team's rotation."

    For this unique but valuable stat, who stands tall in Knicks history?

    Patrick Ewing, 42.4: Ewing's VORP is, by far, the highest of anyone's in Knicks history. He dominated his time with the team, and it shows through this high number.

    Fansided: New York Knicks: Steve Mills explains Tim Hardaway Jr. signing

    A surplus of reports surfaced on Thursday, July 6 that Tim Hardaway Jr. signed an offer sheet presented to him by the New York Knicks. The rumored deal was said to be worth $71 million over the span of four seasons.

    Two days later, the Knicks officially announced that the Atlanta Hawks would be letting the restricted free agent walk and thus join the Knicks.

    Hardaway Jr.'s restricted free agency gave Atlanta the right to match any offer sheet he signed. With Hardaway Jr. now officially back in the orange and blue, Knicks fans are left to ponder what the signing entails.

    Empire Sports Media: New York Knicks: Taj Gibson is serving an important purpose

    The New York Knicks signed veteran big man Taj Gibson to help in more than one way. Despite his experience and production throughout his lengthy career as a professional, Gibson's primary purpose will be to help young star Mitchell Robinson further develop his game.

    He is providing the young center a seasoned veteran to act as his mentor, which is precisely why the Knicks had no problem investing in the 11-year player. Gibson averaged 10.8 points per game over 24.1 minutes last season, so he still does have value on the floor and can provide Robinson with time to rest and stay out of foul trouble.

    Posting and Toasting: The Knicks have been asking around about veteran point guards (and Shabazz Muhammad)

    Hey, I know you're busy watching Peyton Manning crack dad jokes at the Knicks' expense at ESPN's yearly vanity project--sorry to interrupt!

    But, as it turns out, we've got a #BermanBomb situation on our hands!

    (Not really, but just play along. When was the last time Marc Berman got a huge scoop?)

    Having spent more or less all of their remaining free agent money on Ron Baker, and firmly in the middle of trying to orchestrate a trade to move Carmelo Anthony, it appears the Knicks have shifted their focus to acquiring a veteran point guard via trade.
