The New York Knicks are back

Tom Thibodeau and his new coaching staff kick off for real Monday in Tarrytown, debuting their much touted ability to teach and develop Knicks players for the next three weeks.

It is the first team activity organized since March 11, when the Knicks won overtime in Atlanta before the pandemic disrupted the championship. Last month, the NBA granted “The Delete 8” – teams not included in the July recovery – this opportunity.

According to a league source familiar with the purpose of the three-week minicamp, this will be a good chance for the manager to have a check on the players for the first time – to teach and also for the club to bond.
