José Calderón out 2-3 weeks

New York Knicks Vs. Toronto Raptors pre-season

José Calderón is off to, as Clyde Frazier would say, an “auspicious start” as a Knick.

The Spanish PG, acquired in the Tyson Chandler trade, was a late scratch from Wednesday’s home opener, but an MRI Thursday revealed a calf strain, which will cost Calderón 2-3 weeks (at least… you never know with the Knicks). This is frustrating for Knicks fans; Calderón is an important player, he cost us our best interior defender (and our interior defense is looking suspect so far), and these kinds of injuries can be nagging. Hopefully Shane Larkin steps up in José’s absence, and Calderón can return before too long. -Tommy Rothman

STAT just did some irreversible damage. You can’t unsee this.

Let the record show that the Knicks completely collapsed about 2 minutes after this was shown on the scoreboard. By the way, follow our Twitter @KnicksMemes !

Knicks trade Travis Outlaw to 76ers

tra

The Knicks have traded Travis Outlaw to the Philadelphia 76ers for Arnett Moultrie (who the Knicks released immediately after the trade). New York will also send over a 2019 2nd-round pick and the right to swap 2nd round picks in 2018. The trade makes room for Travis Wear on the Knicks’ NBA roster, and relieves New York of Outlaw’s $3 million salary while saving them another $4.7 million off of their luxury tax bill. The Sixers are expected to release Outlaw. -Tommy Rothman
