The New York Knicks are a franchise full of renewed optimism after some big name deals this summer followed three of the worst seasons in recent memory.

Derrick Rose was the blockbuster trade, but Phil Jackson and co. made several other smart moves alongside that calculated gamble.

Courtney Lee has joined the backcourt, and Brandon Jenning is now point guard in the absence of Rose.

On the way back his Achilles injury in 2015, Jennings says he weighed as much as 210lbsm nearly, however, now that he is a lean 175lbs, he has all the confidence in the world.

"I feel great. I feel faster. I hope I look faster," Jennings said after the game. "... I just feel like myself again."

Although Rose - a former MVP - is being viewed as a key piece in the Big Apple and he will hope he can prove he can still reach those heights again after ACL surgery.

However, in former Detroit Piston man Jennings, the organisation have an athletic, scoring option should anything happen to Rose.

Having a backcourt of Lee and Jennings for the second unit is very good indeed and it would appear as thought Carmelo Anthony's prayers have finally been answered - he has support.
