nba rumors The Knicks need a center, and at least their summer league team has a familiar name — Duke’s 7-footer Marshall Plumlee, according to a source. Plumlee, who finished his senior season with the Blue Devils, went undrafted on Thursday and could be invited to training camp if he shows well in Orlando, Fla., where the Knicks open July 2. NY Post

The Knicks are desperate for a starting center — their top target is Joakim Noah — and a starting shooting guard after the Derrick Rose blockbuster. They are also desperate to fill out a 15-man roster within the confines of the salary cap. They have just five players under contract. NY Post

The Knicks haven’t gotten confirmation on a Kevin Durant meeting as of yet. The Vertical had reported they were excluded from the July 1 meeting list that featured Golden State, Boston, Clippers, Heat, Spurs and Thunder. NY Post

The Knicks need a shooting guard and ex-Knick Jamal Crawford appears intrigued. He’s not at the top of Jackson’s list but the reigning Sixth Man of the Year told The Post Saturday morning, “I can’t answer directly because I’m not free, but anything is possible.” NY Post

nba rumors Toronto Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan does not plan to schedule meetings with other teams at the start of free agency, opting to focus on working out a contract to return to the Eastern Conference finalists, a source told ESPN.com. ESPN.com

The Raptors can offer DeRozan a five-year maximum contract worth $153 million with the salary cap at a projected $94 million. Other teams would be able to offer him a max deal of $114 million over four years. ESPN.com

"Our No. 1 goal is to bring DeMar back here," Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri said at his season-ending news conference. "We feel great that he wants to come back to our organization." ESPN.com
