Knicks links: Suns willing to fight for Steve Nash - Jun 3, 2012

Steve Nash
At best, the Knicks will have their mid-level exception to offer soon-to-be free agent Steve Nash (6'3''-PG-74, college: Santa Clara). Depending on how the June 13th hearing on the Bird rights of waived players goes, general manager Glen Grunwald may be forced to give the MLE to Jeremy Lin, and that would practically eliminate New York as a destination for the Phoenix Suns' veteran.

But even if the players' union does win its appeal and it's determined that Lin and Steve Novak do have early-Bird rights (which would allow the Knicks to exceed the salary cap to sign the pair without using any exceptions), getting Nash won't be easy.

For more on that and other issues, here's NJ.com's aggregation of Knicks news from around the web:

The Arizona Republic's Dan Bickley spoke with Suns coach Alvin Gentry, who is encouraged about the team's chances of re-signing Nash: ''I feel good about it,' coach Alvin Gentry said about retaining Nash. 'We just need a player we can throw the ball to at the end of the game, who can get to the foul line, get us a basket or make the right play... I think it's a little unfair for me to ask Steve Nash to do that night in and night out, not just for 66 games, but for 82 games next year. If we're fortunate enough to have Steve back, and we're going to do everything we possibly can to do that, I just think he needs some help.''

HOOPSWORLD's Tommy Beer gave an interesting forecast to the Knicks offseason, which includes a search for depth at point guard and the possible addition of Lamar Odom: 'If the Knicks only have the bi-annual exception and veterans minimums, some affordable, potential PG targets might include: Keyon Dooling, Jonny Flynn, Jannero Pargo, Delonte West, Ishmael Smith, and John Lucas... And depending upon whether or not Grunwald brings back J.R. Smith, Novak, Fields, and/or Jeffries, the list of Knicks needs could grow exponentially.'

J.R. Smith on a late-night bike ride with Knicks fans? Trey Kerby of 'The Basketball Jones' blog has the pictures and more: 'J.R. Smith is often the most frustrating player in the league to watch, but just as often, he is the most entertaining player to follow on the social media website twitter.com. To wit: 'How many people want to ride bikes with me at 2am instagraming pix?... Ill be on 66th an amsterdam @2:30 wit my bike! #getdownorlaydown''

KnickerBlogger.net posted their 2012 report card on Landry Fields, and the reviews were definitely mixed: 'After a rookie campaign that featured back-to-back Eastern Conference rookie of the month awards, 4th place in rookie of the year voting, and a spot on the NBA rookie first team, it looked like Fields had found his tempo. But in his second year, Fields failed to put together a prolonged stretch of good play. With the exception of slight improvements in AST% (9.0 to 14.5) and steal percentage (1.6 to 2.1), Fields stats are down across the board. Ive read a number of theories on why Fields struggled in 2011-2012. Some blame the sophomore jinx; others say it is Carmelo Anthonys style of play. A few blame it on Fields own lack of talent, or that he is playing out of position, or that he is regressing to the mean.'

It might be old news for some, but Patrick Ewing will not be getting the Charlotte Bobcats coaching gig. Here's one report from the New York Post: 'Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said the team will hire a new head coach within the next couple of weeks, but it wont be Patrick Ewing... Higgins said owner Michael Jordan informed Ewing the team plans to hire someone other than the former Knicks great to replace Paul Silas... Higgins said Patrick has a lot of great qualities as a coach and he will one day be a head coach.'

LeBron's 35 help Cavs beat Celtics 87-79, reach NBA Finals - 6 minutes ago
With another Game 7 victory at stake, LeBron James would not sit out. He would not say goodbye to Cleveland again - not yet, anyway. And he would not be denied an eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals. The four-time league MVP scored 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists on Sunday night, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 87-79 win over the Celtics and eliminating Boston from the Eastern Conference finals in the decisive seventh game   [read more]

Thompson and Curry save Warriors, extend thrilling series, and give NBA two Game 7s - 1 day ago
Stephen Curry (6'3''-PG-88, college: Davidson) looked exhausted. After running nearly a mile and a half on defense in the Golden State Warriors' 115-86 win over the Houston Rockets in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals Saturday night, there wasn't much left in the tank as he walked to his locker after the game. Curry grabbed a chocolate protein shake, downed the entire box in one swig, then tossed it left-handed into a nearby trash can. Like the 12 shots he made in this elimination g...   [read more]

LeBron James goes for 46 in Cavaliers' 109-99 victory over Celtics to force a Game 7 - 2 days ago
LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) chose Boston as the place he'll play next. Game 7 is on. And any talk about James' future is on hold. James scored 46 points and preserved his reign atop the Eastern Conference for at least one more game as the Cleveland Cavaliers shook off losing All-Star Kevin Love (6'10''-PF-88, college: UCLA) with a head injury and beat Boston 109-99 on Friday night to force a decisive climax to this back-and-forth series. James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cav...   [read more]
