EUROTRIP IN WORKS FOR DANILO & CO.


EUROTRIP IN WORKS FOR DANILO & CO. LeBron James better brush up on his French and Italian.

The Knicks were informed last week they are tentatively headed to Paris and Milan in October to play two or three preseason games, according to a league official.

The Knicks would head to Europe on Oct. 1 and stay until Oct. 5. They are expected to play Milan's Armani Jeans team and an NBA team. It is the first time the Knicks have gone overseas under the current NBA Europe format.

If the Knicks do land King James as a free agent this summer, David Stern would reap the global benefits of having him debut in France.

The NBA has wanted to send the Knicks to Italy since they drafted Danilo Gallinari in 2008. The NBA tried to send the Knicks to Italy this past preseason, but those plans were scrapped, partly due to the recession.

Mike D'Antoni, a former Italian League superstar and head coach, is also a big name in Italy. The Knicks would open training camp early and likely stay at their Westchester compound for a few days before flying to Europe.

The Knicks last played overseas in the 1990 McDonalds Classic in Barcelona.
