  • NBA MVTs: Rockets land at 7th on Forbes' list of most valuable NBA franchises

The usual suspects top the list, with the Knicks on top, becoming the first franchise to ever crack the $4 billion mark on the Forbes list.

The New York Knicks have waived Enes Kanter and Wesley Matthews, allowing them to sign with other teams for a playoff run.

Matthews plans to sign with the Pacers, according to a report from Charania.

Kanter indicated after Tuesday's game against Detroit that he had played for the Knicks for the last time.

Then again, the Celtics were OK with adding the defensively challenged Greg Monroe a year ago, and he ended up averaging 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds a game in limited minutes before being relegated to mostly garbage time and DNPs in the playoffs. He was traded to Knicks by the Mavericks as part of the Kristaps Porzingis deal.

Trump is in 'very good health', says White House doctor
The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown.

A ton of contending teams will certainly come calling - most likely headed by the Houston Rockets.

Kanter, 26, had appeared in just three of the Knicks' past 12 games and had been vocal about his displeasure over his reduced role.

In his 25.6 minutes per game with NY this season he is averaging 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists.

The Knicks were unable to trade the veteran center's $18.6 million contract, but they will still work to end this tumultuous past four months and agreed to release him, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Kornet, Mitchell Robinson and the newly acquired DeAndre Jordan are all ahead in the center rotation. The club also received interest in recent days for big man Noah Vonleh, sources said.

Some speculate the move positions the Knicks to acquire not one but two big-ticket free agents this offseason, such as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
