Jeremy who? Knicks don't want to talk about Jeremy Lin

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

With the NBA 2012-13 regular season quickly approaching, the New York Knicks want to talk about the team assembled instead of one that got away in Jeremy Lin

Since choosing to let point guard Jeremy Lin leave for the Houston Rockets, the New York Knicks have kept quiet on their decision not to retain Lin and now the team doesn't want to talk about him whatsoever, via CBS New York.

During a press conference with the media, Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald was asked about the decision to let their starting point guard walk as a restricted free agent. Grunwald began his explanation, but was unable to expand on it before Knicks head coach Mike Woodson interrupted and said he will not be talking about Jeremy Lin.

Woodson, who took over for Mike D'Antoni as Knicks head coach after 42 games last season, wanted to focus on the group of point guards the team brought in, instead of the one that got away.

"As an organization and as a coach, I wish Jeremy nothing but the best. This day really is about, I think, the team that we fielded this summer, and we need to focus in on that."

The Knicks will need everything they get from their reassembled roster this season when they open up the season at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday, Nov. 1.
