Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari rejoined his former Italian team Olimpia Milano on Tuesday, agreeing to play until the NBA lockout ends.
Amare Stoudemire scored 32 points, leading five New York players in double figures, and the Knicks pulled away in the third quarter en route to a 125-113 victory over Olimpia Milano on Sunday.
NBA commissioner David Stern says he hasn't thought about the effects of a possible lockout next year, and gave new assurances that the league and players' union remain focused on reaching a new labor agreement.
NBA teams currently in Europe will go on with their planned preseason activities amid heightened terror concerns, but the league has promised to take "appropriate" security measures.
Two people with knowledge of the team's plans say the New York Knicks will travel to Italy next fall and play at least one exhibition game in Milan.
Sure, New York will be tough. Danilo Gallinari believes he is ready, since there was plenty of pressure playing in Milan.
Stephon Marbury says he plans to play in Italy when his contract with the Knicks is up.
