VIDEO: Moe Harkless appears to be miserable with Knicks
New York Knicks forward Moe Harkless does not seem to be enjoying his new situation in the Big Apple.
Who could blame him? The 26-year-old swingman went from being a vital role player for Larry O’ Brien trophy frontrunners Los Angeles Clippers, to joining a disenchanted Knicks franchise. New York is once again loitering at the bottom of the NBA Standings with a putrid 17-42 slate.
Speaking after the Knicks lost their sixth game in a row on Thursday night against the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center, Harkless summed up his disappointment with one word.
Asked if it was hard to deal with his current reality, the 6-foot-7 swingman answered “Yeah”, with a blank stare in his eyes.
Reporter: “Was it hard for you to go from a team that was contending to a team with six straight losses?”
Moe Harkless: “Yeah” ☹️

Moe Harkless played in 26 minutes against Philly on Thursday and finished with 17 points, four boards, and two assists.
He is averaging 7.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in the five games he played for the Knicks so far. Harkless was a beloved figure in Clippers’ head coach Doc Rivers rotation this season. The team, however, opted to trade him away in a three-team trade in the deadline to make space for Marcus Morris.
