The latest news out of NYC..
- Knicks coach Mike Woodson reminded reporters, including Adam Zagoria of SNY (on Twitter), that injured forward Jeremy Tyler isn’t guaranteed a roster spot just because he has a partial contract guarantee. ”Ain’t nothing guaranteed on our team,” the coach explained.
- Tyler’s injury could be good news for former lottery pick Cole Aldrich, who is fighting for a roster spot, notes Marc Berman of the New York Post. Aldrich, who was the final acquisition of Glen Grunwald before he was replaced as GM, has a fan in Woodson, though the coach noted that he is “awkward” offensively.
- Bojan Bogdanovic denied media reports that he turned down a contract extension offer from Fenerbahce to join the Nets this season, according to TrendBasket (via Sportando). ”Fenerbahce did not offer me a new contract. It is not correct what the media reported about me refusing a new deal. Now I am focused on the current season. At the end of the year I will decide my future,” said the Croatian star.
