The Knicks did not sign Kristaps Porzingis to a rookie extension ahead of yesterday’s deadline. This was expected, as they look to save approximately $10 million in cap space by waiting until next summer.

In a formality, the Knicks picked up Frank Ntilikina’s team option.

Emmanuel Mudiay (sprained right ankle), Isaiah Hicks (sprained left ankle), and Lance Thomas (left knee soreness) all did not practice Monday.

Courtney Lee continues to practice and it appears his injured neck is in much better shape. Fizdale said “I want to get him a few more practices and some more conditioning and see how his body responds to all of that stuff” when asked if Lee will play on Wednesday.

Frank Ntilikina will defend Trae Young at times on Wednesday. Fizdale wants him to develop into a First-Team All-NBA defender.

Initial rosters for the regular season were set at 5:00 PM EST on Monday. Noah Vonleh will take Joakim Noah’s roster spot on the 15-man roster for the Knicks.

John Starks apologized for giving Miami Heat fans the middle finger back in the day (we forgive you, John).
