Knicks free agency rumors: New York could pursue forward Julius Randle The New York Knicks are interested in buying another second-round pick, league sources told @TheAthleticNBA. Currently, New York has the No. 3 and 55 picks in the draft.— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) June 20, 2019The Knicks hold the No. 3 pick and are projected to take former Duke star RJ Barrett, if they don’t trade down. They’re also set to be on the clock with the 55th selection.“If that ends up and I’m still there at three, I’d love for (the Knicks) to take me,” Barrett said during a recent interview. “This is the place I want to be, so I hope they draft me.” Related News “We’re excited about where we are,’’ Knicks president Steve Mills said in May. “We know we’ll get a good player at three. So, it’s something we’re excited about and look forward to. We want to build this team the right way. We’ve always said we’re going to continue to work hard during the draft process. We believe we’re a team that can draft well.”The Knicks finished the season with a 17-65 record. They last made the playoffs in 2012-13.
“I’m just sick of getting hit, especially by this team,” Frazier said before Sunday’s series finale, via the New York Post. “At the end of the day, he can say what he wants. A little overboard, but just got to keep playing. Hopefully some things change.”In the fifth inning, the Mets third baseman was tossed from the game when he started screaming at Arrieta and the home plate umpire after he was hit by a pitch. The reaction caused Arrieta to lose his cool and say he would “dent (Frazier’s) skull.” Related News MLB trade rumors: Todd Frazier would be ‘OK’ if Mets dealt him Two batters later, Arrieta hit Amed Rosario, but the umpire said it was unintentional and allowed him to stay in the game. That caused Mets manager Mickey Callaway to get ejected after he stormed out to the umpire to argue that call.“He didn’t think he was intentionally throwing at him. And I get that part, but, I mean, damn, we just got one of our guys thrown out because of the whole debacle and their guy gets to stay in,” Callaway said after the game Saturday.Frazier being hit by Arrieta marks the seventh time overall that he has been hit by a pitch this season. Frazier admitted Arrieta likely didn’t mean to hit him, but added it’s coincidental that he was beaned by a member of the Phillies again.“It probably wasn’t on purpose, I’ll be honest with you,” Frazier said. “But I’ve gotten hit too many times by the same team. My reactions were warranted.”He added: “I don’t think all of them are out of coincidence. You do it 12 times, there’s a couple of those that are done on purpose.“We’ll see what the commissioner wants to do. He saw what people were saying yesterday. We’ll see what happens after this.”It was the second day in a row Frazier was hit by a Philadelphia pitcher and third time overall by the Phillies this season. Both sides were warned to calm down after the incident, which further incensed Frazier.“If you’re going to warn both sides, go through with what your saying,” he said. Todd Frazier was calm when he was asked about Jake Arrieta’s threatening comment after he was plunked by the pitcher during Mets’ 6-5 win over the Phillies Saturday night.Frazier didn’t fan the flames, but voiced his displeasure over being hit — again — by a member of the Phillies.
