New York Teams

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Plenty of Knicks fans are wondering why the team won't call up guard Jimmer Fredette in the wake of his strong performance (game-record 35 points) in the D League All Star game. It seems like they have a good opportunity to take give Fredette an opportunity now. But New York has thus far opted against using its open roster spot to sign the former BYU star. Last month, the Knicks signed fellow Westchester Knick Thanasis Antetokounmpo instead of Fredette due to injuries at the wing position. The Knicks could now use help in the backcourt, so it will be interesting to see if they turn to Fredette in the coming days.

Could Nets lure GM R.C. Buford from Spurs?

R.C. Buford would probably cost a lot, but as far as candidates are concerned, you can't do much better than the Spurs' GM.

Forte could stabilize Jets' backfield

The Jets' top three backs -- Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley -- are pending free agents. With so much uncertainty at the position, Forte could be a nice option if the Jets can't re-sign Powell and Ivory. Where will Forte land?

Need to correct one thing from yesterday since someone well-meaning misspoke: Leagues in South Korea and Japan may very well honor the MLB ban on Jenrry Mejia, but they are not technically affiliated with MLB, so they are not by some agreement forced to do so. Regardless, Mejia would be free to participate in winter leagues while banned, including in the Dominican Republic.
