According to Eurohoops.net, 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 is reportedly closing in on a one-year deal worth roughly $2 million with Barcelona of Spain.

Seraphin is currently an unrestricted free agent, but he hasn't generated much interest on the open market. Playing overseas may grant Seraphin with the most opportunity for playing time.

Six-time All-Star Amare Stoudemire has announced that he will be retiring from the NBA after 14 years in the league.

Stoudemire released a statement saying that he will be retiring as a New York Knick, "Although my career has taken me to other places, my heart had always remained in the Big Apple. Once a Knick, Always a Knick." Stoudemire spent some of the best years of his career running the pick-and-roll to perfection with Steve Nash in Phoenix, but his body just started to breakdown around 2011. STAT will end his career with averages of 18.9 points, 7.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 swats per game. Click the link below for his full statement. As a side note, there's a chance STAT suits up in the CBA or Israel next season, but his NBA days are over.

Derrick Rose said that the expectations in New York are high because the Knicks are a "super team."

"They're high," Rose said. "I mean, with these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams, and they're trying not to build that many super teams, and Adam Silver came out with the statement and this and that." He's probably getting way ahead of himself with that comment, but at least he's feeling confident again and he said that he has been "rejuvenated" by his move to New York. Rose also said that he's been working out six days a week and that he's focused on improving his mid-range shot this summer as well as his conditioning.

Carmelo Anthony thinks the Knicks had a realistic shot at signing Dwyane Wade.

While the Knicks could have been a player for Wade, they also would risked losing other free agents by waiting on Wade. "There was a chance," Anthony said. "There was definitely a chance. We would have had to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the 25th hour. But there was a chance. I think if it was maybe two days earlier we probably would have had D-Wade." By moving quickly, the Knicks were able to sign (or re-sign) Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee, Brandon Jennings, and Lance Thomas and surround Anthony with greater depth.

Carmelo Anthony expressed his happiness over the Knicks offseason moves.

The Knicks were aggressive in adding to their core of Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis and the moves have made Melo a happy camper. "The front office stepped up,’’ Anthony said. "It was a collective effort. They did their job and did what they had to do to make things happen. Now they’ve put us in the situation to give us an opportunity. All we have to do is take advantage of it." The 32-year-old now has a solid veteran group surrounding him and while he won't be the fantasy stud he once was, he should have no trouble returning early-round value in 2016-17 as long as he can stay healthy.

Derrick Rose was recently spotted working out with Brandon Jennings, Kristaps Porzingis and Sasha Vujacic in Los Angeles.

Players work out with each other all the time, but this one is important as it shows that the newly signed Knicks are already working on their chemistry. Jeff Hornacek said he hopes that Rose can get Porzingis some easier looks under the basket, and he hopes the pair can be a threat in the pick-and-roll, so it's nice to see them working together this early. For what it's worth, Rose reportedly looked "explosive" during his L.A. workout.

The Mavericks and Bulls have reportedly expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Thanasis Antetokounmpo.

Thanasis hasn't ever been given a real shot to play in the NBA, and that won't change if he does wind up signing a contract with either of the aforementioned teams. He could also return overseas next season, but either way, he's off the radar in all leagues.
Jul 14 - 3:58 PM

Sasha Vujacic has officially re-signed with the Knicks.

Vujacic will re-join the Knicks on a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. He'll help the team with a veteran presence off the bench, but he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 14 - 1:55 PM

The Knicks have officially signed F Maurice Ndour.

After spending the 2015-16 season in Europe, Ndour will now join the Knicks on a two-year deal. While he could have some value in deeper fantasy leagues, Ndour can be ignored in standard leagues as he'll have limited upside as Kristaps Porzingis' backup.
Jul 14 - 10:07 AM

Ricky Ledo (strained right quad) will be available to play in Wednesday's summer league matchup with the Hawks.

Ledo is fighting for a roster spot in Sacramento, but even if he does make the team, he won't have much value at all competing for reserve minutes with Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi and Garrett Temple.

The Knicks have reportedly signed Maurice Ndour to a two-year contract, with the first year being guaranteed.

Ndour had a nice showing during last year's summer league that earned him a contract with the Mavs, but a leg injury resulted in him being waived and he then spent the 2015-16 season in Europe. Ndour will likely play limited minutes in New York operating as a backup to Kristaps Porzingis, so he's not going to be a standard league asset, although his shot blocking ability could have him pop up on the radar in deeper leagues.

Knicks re-sign G/F Sasha Vujacic.

Marc Berman of the New York Post reports Vujacic's deal is a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. While Vujacic will provide the team with a veteran presence off the bench, he's not on the fantasy radar.

Willy Hernangomez said that he likes to play in the low post.

"I'm a center," he said. "I love playing in the low post. I like passing the ball to my teammates ... I like to run and play fast like [head coach Jeff Hornacek] wants. I like to run the fastbreak." Willy (pronounced Billy) is excited to be reunited with Kristaps Porzingis, but we'll have to wait for training camp to see where he settles into on the depth chart. Right now, he's the third center behind Joakim Noah and Kyle O'Quinn.

Joakim Noah is excited to get started with the Knicks.

"There’s definitely a buzz in the city. I think it’s on us to make it work," he said. "Winning in the Garden, I’m not gonna get a feeling like that anywhere else. I’m not here to just get a check and be happy. I want to be an animal. I want to make the city proud." These quotes will undoubtedly fire up the Knicks faithful, but they'll be even more excited if Noah is able to shake the injury bug and successfully remain on the floor.
