As both the Knicks and Nets are in action tonight, here is the latest out of NYC.
- Knicks guard Iman Shumpert says the trade talk isn’t getting to him, but Clyde Frazier says otherwise, writes Marc Berman of the New York Post. “He’s always been a very confident guy,’’ Frazier said. “I think he just has to find his role. Sometimes he doesn’t look like he’s happy out here. Maybe that’s because he heard the rumors he’s being traded. But he’s very stern in his face. It doesn’t look like he’s having fun.’’
- If Mike Woodson gets fired, who will coach the Knicks? Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com throws out some names, including Jeff Van Gundy, Phil Jackson, and Lionel Hollins.
- Marc Berman of the NY Post tweets that Jeremy Tyler, the injured Knicks player controversially cut for Chris Smith, is rehabbing in a Tarrytown facility and could make his D-League debut in as little as two weeks.
- Emiliano Carchia of Sportando passes along a Turkish report indicating that free agent point Sundiata Gaines is set to join Turkey’s Besiktas. Gaines, who last played in the NBA in 2011/12 for the Nets, spent last season with Fujian in China.
