In addition to finding a big man in free agency, the Knicks need to find a replacement for Arron Afflalo at shooting guard. DeMar DeRozan is the biggest name on the market (not counting Kevin Durant), and the Knicks are reportedly interested. Orlando's Evan Fournier and Charlotte's Nic Batum also have fans in the Knicks' organization, sources say. The club's of interest in both Batum and Fournier is unclear. Batum, of course, will have many suitors on July 1 and will likely command a max salary. Fournier is a restricted free agent and it seems likely that Orlando works to retain him because the club just traded Victor Oladipo. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see if the Knicks prioritize center over shooting guard in free agency; they probably won't the able to spend big money on both positions.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson continues to harp on leadership when it comes to Brook Lopez and really wanting his 7-footer to become a better leader. That's definitely a focus moving forward -- and with a very young, rebuilding team, it needs to be.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson on his team's needs in free agency: "I think veteran leadership is important. I think undervalued guys, guys that might be under the radar and can produce and maybe not necessarily the big star, maybe we're not in position to get that guy and really guys like Isaiah Whitehead that fill the characteristics we're looking for -- hardworking, high character, high basketball IQ is important for us and competitors."

Is Ryan Fitzpatrick the Jets' missing piece?

One thing's for sure: Fitzpatrick would give New York a legitimate quarterback, something they might not currently have on the roster. But there are still other questions, as Dan Graziano notes.

Nationals light up Noah Syndergaard

The first game of the anticipated Mets-Nats series was a dud, David Schoenfield writes. Washington tallied seven hits and five runs off Syndergaard while also running all over the basepaths. That's an obvious problem the Mets will have to address in the future. Five things we learned Monday

Stats & Info

Theft an issue for Noah Syndergaard

The Nats swiped five bags off Syndergaard in his three innings of work on Monday. That brought his season total of stolen bases while he's pitching to 28, twice as many as any other pitcher in baseball.

Stats & Info

Blame it on the rain, Yankees

New York's streak of 160 straight wins when leading entering the ninth inning came to an end early Tuesday morning after the Rangers scored four runs following a lengthy rain delay to win 9-6.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Before last night's rain-delayed game, the Yankees had won 160 consecutive games when leading after 8 innings. They are now 160-1 in such games, dating back to June 1, 2014. The Rangers beat the Yankees 9-6 in a game that was delayed for 3 hours and 35 minutes. The Yankees had a 6-5 lead going into the 9th inning before play was stopped after Aroldis Chapman walked Robinson Chirinos and had a 3-1 count on Shin-Soo Choo. Rangers scored 4 runs after the game resumed at 2:15 am.

Stats & Info

Noah Syndergaard just isn't the same

In his last two outings, the right-hander has pitched much worse than he did in his first 14 starts this season.

Stats & Info

Nationals pitching settled in vs. Mets

After allowing four runs on nine hits in the first three innings on Monday, Nats pitchers held the Mets scoreless over the last six frames. That allowed the offense to mount a comeback and lead the team to an 11-4 win.

Stats & Info

Andrew Marchand saw it coming

Our Yankees beat writer took to Twitter during Monday's rain delay to predict that the Rangers would mount a comeback after the ninth-inning stoppage of play. Of course, they did.
