Phil Jackson’s last contribution to the Knicks before he was unceremoniously ousted as team president was to select Frank Ntilikina with the eighth overall pick, grabbing the 18-year-old point guard from France to helm his favored triangle offense. Jackson is gone, as is the triangle offense. And the point guard that Jackson passed on to take Ntilikina was Dennis Smith Jr. In a survey on NBA.com, a poll of 39 rookies predicted Smith Jr. to win rookie of the year honors this season.
The Mets announced late Friday night that they traded outfielder Curtis Granderson and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Grandersonm, who hit .228 (77-337) with 19 home runs, 52 RBI and 58 runs scored in 111 games with the Mets this year, did not play in the Mets' loss to the Marlins on Friday night. He went 1-for-3 in Thursday's loss to the Yankees at Citi Field.
NEW YORK – The Mets continued their jettison of veteran players on expiring deals as Rene Rivera was awarded to the Cubs on a waiver claim. The Mets could have pulled Rivera back or worked a trade, but are instead letting him go with no compensation. The Cubs will pick up the remainder of Rivera's salary equaling roughly $421,000, and the Mets have called up Kevin Plawecki and Tommy Milone. The team also cleared a roster spot early Saturday when it traded Curtis Granderson to the Dodgers.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
