Mario Hezonja wants to extend his Knicks career beyond this season

As the Knicks finishedA their first practice back home after a long road trip, Enes Kanter, the subject of trade talks, was absent,A with the team reporting that he had left with an illness.

The coach of the struggling team, David Fizdale, was missing because ofA what the team called a personal matter.

What might seem dysfunctional for most teams was just another day for the Knicks. TheyA went through theirA workout without theirA head coach and with Kanter departing early. And when it was over, Mario Hezonja proclaimed his love for New York and his desire to remain a part of the organization after his contract is up at the end of the season.

When it was pointed out that his future is uncertain, he said, a€œI know. You guys dona€™t.a€

It was an enthusiastic take from Hezonja, who played one of his best games of the season with 19 points and six rebounds in the Knicks' 122-95 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday night. While he has averaged 28 minutes and 16.5 points per game inA the last two games, inA the seven games before that, he played aA total of a littleA more than 20 minutes and sat out four of the games completely.

But heA insisted that even when he has been put on the bench, it hasna€™t changed his feelings for New York.
