Cavaliers: Carmelo Anthony wants to stay near son, wife says

The New York Knicks have parted ways with their team president, Phil Jackson, after a disastrous three years for the franchise.

It clearly annoyed Jackson, who went so far as to make Porzingis available in trade talks ahead of last Thursday's N.B.A. draft. "As someone who treasures winning, I am deeply disappointed that we weren't able to do that", Jackson said. "That's what I can say to them". The Knicks went 17-65 in his first season and improved to 32-50 the following year.

Jackson's time with the Knicks has been marked by rumored dysfunction.

It looks like New York Knicks president Phil Jackson's job isn't as secure as previously thought.

Here's more from CBS New York...

The beginning of Jackson's term was met with hope because of his 11 championships as National Basketball Association head coach, but quickly soured due to his devotion to the triangle offense, questionable free-agent signings and the public treatment of all-star forward Carmelo Anthony. Now the current Knicks and any signings (free agency, which starts July 1, will be overseen by GM Steve Mills) are free to play in coach Jeff Hornacek's preferred faster-paced offense. Jackson was keen to trade Anthony and said he would listen to offers for Porzingis, one of the NBA's best young players.

According to National Basketball Association sources, Dolan went back on his February promise to have Jackson fulfill the full five years of his contract because of new circumstances revolving around Jackson's public feuds with the Knicks' two best players, Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis.

NY has missed the playoffs for four consecutive seasons and lost at least 50 games in the past three - all under Jackson. In February, Dolan said in an interview that he would want Jackson to complete his final two seasons despite the fact that his performance was not up to par.

"I mean, he's known as the Zen Master, like a master talker, and then he's not talking to anybody", McEnroe said of Jackson. The Knicks wound up taking 18-year-old French point guard Frank Ntilikina, who spoke highly of the triangle and Jackson's belief in the scheme. The guy running the franchise even deeper into the ground is now gone, and that's worth celebrating.

Rose's injuries in the past could be reasons why he has a lower value than other free agent playmakers this 2017. No deal was made, and NY selected French guard Frank Ntilikina with the eighth overall selection.
