Josh Hart News
New York Knicks guard/forward Josh Hart is believed to be penciled in for the backup power forward role for training camp. According to SNY's Ian Begley, the Knicks like the idea of Hart playing in the second unit and making plays as a screener out of the short role. The team doesn't have a lot of frontcourt depth, and playing Hart in the power-forward position will be an interesting experiment. The 28-year-old stands only at six-foot-four, but he's always been a good rebounder, and it seems like the Knicks staff sees Hart as a good fit for the position.
The New York Knicks could be considering bringing guard/forward Josh Hart off the bench as a backup power forward next season. The 28-year-old appears penciled in as New York's second-string small forward currently, but the Knicks are also still looking for a 15th man on their roster. Hart likely wouldn't exclusively play at the 4, anyway, so fantasy managers shouldn't worry about him potentially being blocked for playing time by starter Julius Randle. Obi Toppin averaged only 15.7 minutes as a reserve last year, but that was due to head coach Tom Thibodeau's reluctance to play him alongside Randle, which Hart should do plenty of. The versatile Hart should remain a solid across-the-board contributor who doesn't significantly hurt any one category next season.
New York Knicks guard/forward Josh Hart had another outstanding performance rebounding the ball at the World Cup on Wednesday, logging a game-high 12 boards in a 110-62 victory over Jordan. He had 10 rebounds on the defensive end alone and needed just 18 minutes of action to tie the sixth-highest rebounding mark of this year's tournament. Hart also handed out three assists and picked up one steal while finishing with two points. The Knicks man is averaging a team-high 9.0 rebounds through the first three games of the tournament and has also contributed 4.3 points and 2.7 assists.
New York Knicks guard Josh Hart has agreed to a long term extension with the organization. The two sides have agreed to a four-year, $81 million extension on Wednesday. The Knicks acquired Hart at the trade deadline last season. He played a significant role in getting the Knicks to the second round of the postseason. Hart accepted his player option for the upcoming season, but mentioned he wanted to remain with the Knicks long term. It appears the two sides have mutual interest and Hart should be a key piece to this team going forward.
