What happens when 30 NBA owners can't share $24 billion?

The NBA's new $24 billion TV deal was believed to be a potential solution for the league's revenue disparity, but the Knicks alone made $10 million more from TV last season than the six lowest-earning teams combined.

Michael Beasley says he's looking forward to playing with Carmelo Anthony and believes the Knicks have enough talent to make the playoffs as a No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the East. "If Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and myself (are on the roster) – those are four guys that can score 25 points per game....I think we've got a position to be not only a playoff team but a five, six seed team if we do it right." New York has missed the playoffs for three consecutive seasons. Beasley may not get his wish to play with Anthony for long. Both Anthony and the Knicks would like to find a suitable trade partner for the veteran forward.

Jarrett Jack says he's talked to Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek about a number of topics during informal workouts at the Knicks training facility, including a transition to new offense for the Knicks. Jack was asked if there have been any principles of the triangle offense - which the Knicks ran last season under Phil Jackson - in Hornacek's new offense. "If there are he hasn't implemented them yet," Jack said. "So far it's a lot, (a) much more fast-paced style offense. Moving, cutting. A lot more ball movement. But from what I understand that's going to be the crux of it right now."

Jeff Hornacek isn't the only member of the Knicks' hierarchy to attend one of Carmelo Anthony's New York City pickup games. Knicks president Steve Mills also attended a pickup game earlier this month featuring Anthony and other players at the Lifetime Athletic gym in Manhattan, league sources told ESPN. Mills' and Hornacek's attendance at these games is noteworthy because the Knicks have been looking to trade Anthony for months and Anthony, who has a no-trade clause, is open to being moved. New York has been unable to find a suitable deal with Anthony's preferred destination, the Houston Rockets. It is unknown if Hornacek or Mills had any substantive discussions with Anthony on the day(s) they attended games. For what it's worth, Mills last month wrote a long blog on a company website about his vision for the future of the club and didn't mention Anthony.

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim thinks the Knicks would have been better off letting Phil Jackson complete the Carmelo Anthony trade before he was fired. "Now the new guys (Steve Mills and Scott Perry) are going to be held responsible for the deal and nobody's going to give much up [for Anthony in a trade]. So they're going to end up not getting a lot for him and it's really because of what Phil did in poisoning the air," Boeheim, who coached Anthony in college, told SNY.tv's Adam Zagoria. "….I think for Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks, the best thing is for him is to go someplace where they can start over. [The Knicks] need to start over. They have young guys and it would be best for him to get with veteran guys and he's still got two or three great years left. They can't win in New York for two years, three years." Both Anthony and the Knicks hope that a trade is completed. Anthony, who has a no-trade clause, prefers to go to the Houston Rockets.

With Jarrett Jack on the roster, the Knicks now have 20 players under contract. They can't add anyone else for training camp without cutting a player. They have 14 players under guaranteed deals (Chasson Randle's contract is not fully guaranteed). Randle and Jack will likely be competing for the 15th spot while Nigel Hayes, Xavier Rathan Mayes and Jamel Artis compete for the Knicks' second two-way contract. The Knicks are thin/untested at point guard heading into the season. Ramon Sessions, Frank Ntilikina, Jack, Ron Baker and Randle fill out the depth chart at the position.

Knicks sign veteran point guard Jack

Coming off two injury-plagued seasons, veteran point guard Jarrett Jack signed a contract with the New York Knicks.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The New York Knicks and Jarrett Jack are expected to finalize their agreement on Friday or early next week, sources told ESPN. Jack is the second veteran point guard to join New York, which also inked Ramon Sessions earlier this summer. GM Scott Perry had said that he'd like to have veterans to help Rookie Frank Ntilikina. Jack's agreement with the Knicks was first reported by Basketball Insiders. It is a one-year agreement that is not fully guaranteed.
