Sasha Vujacic will get a guaranteed one-year, $1.35 million contract with the Knicks.

The deal was originally thought to be a training camp agreement, but it looks like Vujacic will be spending the entire season in New York. The deal is expected to be finalized soon, so we will update this story when it becomes official. The sharpshooter likely won't have more than a limited role off the bench, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

The Knicks have reached agreement on a one-year deal with Sasha Vujacic.

The Knicks have been in discussion with the eight-year veteran and they'll have him in camp. He played just 10 minutes with the Clippers in the 2013-14 season and was with the Nets back in 2011. He won't be in the rotation.

Sergio Rodriguez said that he wants to remain with Real Madrid.

"I want to stay in Madrid. I’m very comfortable at Real Madrid" Rodriguez said. "This is my city, and I’ve just become a father. After seeing that there were interest from NBA teams I realized there was no chance to go back to the NBA because I’m very comfortable here." The NBA rumors never seem to go away with Rodriguez, but this should quiet the noise for a while. Rodriguez isn't on the fantasy radar.

According to the New York Post, the Knicks' decision to waive Ricky Ledo could pave the way for them to sign Thanasis Antetokounmpo to a contract.

Antetokounmpo didn't have a strong summer league by any means, but he flashed his potential in his final game with 17 points, two boards, one assist, one steal and one block while hitting all seven of his shots from the field. Antetokounmpo is a solid athlete who could blossom into a really strong defender, but he is still very raw on the offensive end. We will let you know if the Knicks decide to finally make a move on him, but Antetokounmpo can be ignored in fantasy leagues next season.

According to the New York Post, the Knicks' front office and coaching staff were split over the decision to waive Ricky Ledo.

According to the Post, the front office was intrigued with Ledo's skill set, but the coaching staff clearly had other ideas. Ledo has a lot of potential as a scorer, but he often made poor decisions on the court and was prone to turnovers. He could get another camp invite from an NBA team, but he won't be on the fantasy radar next season.

The Knicks reportedly held discussions with Sasha Vujacic.

The eight-year veteran had some success with the Lakers and Nets back in the day, but he hasn't played in an NBA game since the Clippers gave him a 10-day contract during the 2013-14 season. Vujacic has a career scoring average of 5.6 points per game, and he likely wouldn't have more than a limited role with the Knicks. We will let you know if the talks progress.

The Knicks have waived G Ricky Ledo.

Ledo averaged 7.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.8 3-pointers in 12 appearances for New York last season, but the Knicks have decided to move on. It's still possible that Ledo gets a camp invite from another team, but if he couldn't make a significant impact on the lowly Knicks then there is no reason to give him a look in fantasy leagues.

James White has signed with Cedevita Zagreb of Croatia.

While White is a gifted athlete, he's been unable to make an impact in the NBA and will now continue his career in Croatia. The 32-year-old is unlikely to play in the NBA again after logging just 67 games in his career and can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Jul 30 - 1:57 PM

The Knicks officially signed Jerian Grant on Thursday.

Grant was the second of the Knicks two first-round picks, but he'll likely have more fantasy relevance than Kristaps Pozingis this season. While Porzingis has some developing to do, Grant will only have to compete with Jose Calderon for the starting point guard job and could play himself into decent fantasy value if he's able to win the job. He's more of a late-round flier for now, but fantasy owners in standard leagues should keep an eye on the Notre Dame product.

The Knicks have officially signed first-round draft pick, Kristaps Porzingis.

Porzingis had a solid-but-not-spectacular showing at Summer League and will need some time to develop his game and body. The Knicks would still like him to add 10-15 pounds of muscle before training camp and it's unlikely that the 19-year-old will see big minutes for the Knicks to start the season. While Porzingis has plenty of upside, he's not currently on the radar in standard fantasy leagues.

Knicks sign F/C Lou Amundson.

The Knicks said they would prioritize bringing Amundson back and Knicks president Phil Jackson put his money where his mouth was in re-signing Amundson. Sweet Lou averaged 6.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.2 blocks in 19.8 minutes after the break last season, but will have a touch time finding minutes with Robin Lopez and Kyle O'Quinn now in town so he can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Craig Hodges has been let go as the Westchester Knicks head coach.

Hodges was brought in to coach the Knicks' D-League affiliate by his former coach and current Knicks president Phil Jackson, but has been let go by Westchester general manager Allan Houston. While the 1990's might be calling for us to return the names in this blurb, Houston will now be in the market for a new head coach for the Westchester Knicks.

Darion Atkins is set to sign a partially guaranteed contract with the Knicks.

Atkins was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year at Virginia last season, but he isn't a lock to make the final roster by any means. He averaged 7.6 points, 6.0 boards, 1.1 blocks and 0.8 steals for Virginia last season, but he likely won't be in the rotation in New York if the Knicks decide to keep him around for the regular season.
Jul 25 - 10:04 AM

The Knicks will sign undrafted guard Wesley Saunders to a partially guaranteed contract.

To be clear, Saunders still has a lot of work to do to make the final roster but he will now have the chance to try and impress the Knicks' coaching staff at training camp. Saunders averaged 16.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game during his senior season at Harvard, but his summer league averages of 2.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists were pretty disappointing. Saunders is not on the fantasy radar.

Carmelo Anthony (knee) has informed U.S. Olympic Team officials he will attend the August minicamp.

He is still rehabbing his knee and is not expected to be a full participant in the minicamp. Anthony was expected to miss 4-6 months for his surgery back in February, so he's still on track to be ready for Knicks training camp. One year after his team encouraged him to shut it down, Anthony's fantasy draft stock is going to slide quite a bit. The Knicks have reportedly given Melo their blessing to attend, as well.
