The 2001-02 New York Knicks season was the 56th season for the Knicks in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] During the offseason, the Knicks acquired Shandon Anderson from the Houston Rockets and Howard Eisley from the Dallas Mavericks in a three-team trade, while signing free agent Clarence Weatherspoon.[2] Entering the season, the Knicks were without Larry Johnson, who retired during training camp.[3] After a 10-9 start to the season, head coach Jeff Van Gundy unexpectedly resigned in December, explaining he had "diminished focus", though he would return to coach the Houston Rockets in the 2003-04 season. Don Chaney took over for Van Gundy.[4][5] Under Chaney, the Knicks suffered an 8-game losing streak in January and went 20-43, on their way to finishing last place in the Atlantic Division with a 30-52 record.[6][7][8] The Knicks missed the NBA Playoffs for the first time in 15 seasons.[1]

Following the season, Marcus Camby and Mark Jackson were both traded to the Denver Nuggets.[9] However, Jackson was released and signed with the Utah Jazz.[10]

For the season, the Knicks changed their uniform by narrowing their side stripes and taking player numbers off of their shorts. After the 2001-02 season, the Knicks' jersey was altered to incorporate the "NYK" subway token logo on the back.[11]
