According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Kevin Seraphin is still hoping to find another job in the NBA despite drawing interest from FC Barcelona.
The 26-year-old big man clearly hasn't generated much interest around the NBA after a quiet season in New York and he's running out of time. We'll keep an eye on this, but it's doubtful that Seraphin will land in a situation that will allow him to hold standard-league fantasy value. Aug 26 - 9:46 AM

According to, there is nothing to the recent rumor that Kevin Seraphin is closing in on a one-year deal with Barcelona of Spain.

Eurohoops states that Seraphin has not even participated in any negotiations with the Spanish club, and given that Seraphin could probably make more money (although play less) at the NBA level, it would be a bit surprising to see him land overseas. Seraphin is currently an unrestricted free agent, but there aren't many situations out there that will grant the shot-blocking Frenchman a real shot at fantasy value.

Kevin Seraphin was noncommittal when asked about a potential return to the Knicks next season.

"We will see what’s going on, because it still is a business," Seraphin said. "I don’t like to address that stuff too much because we never know what’s going to happen." That's a rather lukewarm endorsement of the current situation, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the big man move on to another club.

Kurt Rambis called Kevin Seraphin an "intriguing player," praising his size and strength in the process.

"Kevin, he’s an intriguing player. He has been for us all year," Rambis said. "He’s got great strength and size but tremendous mobility. He can really move his feet. … Sometimes he has trouble stopping once he gets going, but he’s just an interesting player. He hasn’t been playing basketball that long, so he needs to let his game blossom, and we’re trying to figure out where he can be best suited for us in terms of where he can play." The Knicks probably should have started this process earlier in the season, but Seraphin does figure to get in some extra run with Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) sidelined and New York out of postseason contention.
Apr 3 - 3:12 PM

Kevin Seraphin scored 12 points with seven rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Kevin Seraphin (foot) had two points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 12 bench minutes vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

Mar 23 - 11:28 PM

Kevin Seraphin (foot) will be available to play Wednesday vs. Chicago.

Kevin Seraphin (sore left foot) was unable to practice on Tuesday.

While Seraphin was unable to practice, he said he foot injury is just a minor one. There's a chance that he'll be able to play against the Bulls on Wednesday, but his limited role with the Knicks doesn't justify a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.

Kevin Seraphin (sore left foot) will not play Sunday vs. Sacramento.

Kevin Seraphin is hoping for more minutes following the dismissal of coach Derek Fisher.

"I just hope for more playing time," Seraphin said. "That’s the goal. It’s a new opportunity for sure." Seraphin has dropped 25 pounds and is eager to carve out a role, and he logged 15 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Wizards which was just the third time that he saw 15 or minutes since the new year. Unless his role continues to grow, he will only be on the radar in very deep leagues.

Seraphin isn't a major part of the rotation, and he might not even take the floor tonight. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 20 - 5:52 PM

Kevin Seraphin (bruised rib) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
