GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Knicks don't want to talk about Jeremy Lin anymore.
At their media day Monday, the Knicks tried to keep the focus on the aging team they assembled and believe is a contender, rather than on the breakout star they let get away over the summer.
Team officials had never commented on the decision not to match the offer sheet Lin signed with Houston in July, and it took only two questions Monday before general manager Glen Grunwald and coach Mike Woodson were asked for an explanation.
Woodson said he didn't want to discuss Lin, saying Monday was about ``the team that we fielded this summer and we need to focus in on that.''
Newcomers Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd will replace Lin at point guard.
