The New York Knicks are expected to return to Skidmore College for their training camp this fall.
According to Skidmore sports information director Bill Jones, the Knicks will be back for their second season, although no contract has been signed yet. “We have every indication that they are returning,” said Jones. “Most likely, the dates will coincide with the exhibition game the Knicks have with the Nets at the Times Union Center in October. That’s one of the reasons the camp will be back here,” he said.
The Knicks, coached by Mike D’Antoni, are led by forward David Lee. Among the newcomers on this year’s roster are top draft picks Jordan Hill of Arizona and Toney Douglas of Florida State.
Before moving their 10-day camp to Skidmore last year, the Knicks spent 17 years in Charleston, S.C.
The camp is not open to the public.
