Knicks’ David Fizdale Excited for New Culture, Kristaps Porzingis

Published

The New York Knicks need a culture change, and a change of luck after their struggles over the past few years, and new head coach David Fizdale is excited to bring in a new culture of success, as well as coach and develop Kristaps Porzingis.

“It’s already happening,” Fizdale said, according to Bruce Beck of NBC New York. “Kristaps (Porzingis) will come back healthy. He was already having a big-time season last year when he got knocked down. We had an awesome draft with Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, and Allonzo Trier — our two-way player.”

“Scott (Perry) and these guys are big-time sticking to an awesome plan of bringing in guys that maybe didn’t work out at a place where they were at before but are high draft picks. Under some good player development and some culture, maybe they can turn into something close to what they were expected to be… We’re doing it the right way.”

It appears that the Chicago Bulls are souring on Jabari Parker, who will reportedly be pulled from the regular rotation, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

The 23-year old Parker came to Chicago via a two-year, $40 million deal during the offseason, and marked a return to his hometown and a chance to re-ignite his career.

Now, it appears certain that the Bulls will decline his option, sending Parker back to free agency next summer.

“Jabari has been great,” Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said, according to Andrews. “He understands. Jabari wants to make it about helping the team win. And that’s what I’ve asked him to do.”

Parker has averaged 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds for Chicago this season.
