07:15 AM ET 10.28 | Injured center Jeremy Tyler's association with the Knicks may not be over just yet. [Tyler], cut controversially by the Knicks Friday to make room for J.R. Smith's brother, Chris Smith, is still rehabbing at the Knicks' Westchester training facility as the club engages Golden State in talks to obtain his D-League rights, The Post has learned. The 6-10 Tyler, who had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot in early September, is not expected to be able to play until December. The Knicks are hoping when he gets healthy, the Las Vegas summer-league sensation can play for the Knicks' D-League affiliate, Erie, then possibly be re-signed if his foot hasn't hampered him. But Tyler's rights are owned by the Warriors' affiliate, Santa Cruz.

Never thought JR would have THIS much clout with the Knicks.

Maybe JR Smith's wife could be the steno and his dog in charge of MSG fire hydrants... Nepotism at its best....
