NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks have a new president, coach and roster. Now they have a new home for training camp, too.

The Knicks said Friday they have agreed to hold training camp at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs in upstate New York, yet another change under new president Donnie Walsh. The team had been holding training camp at the College of Charleston in South Carolina since the 1990s, but have been considering a move closer to home.

Players will report to training camp Sept. 30 and will work out twice a day. Practices will be closed to the public.

A schedule will be released after new coach Mike D'Antoni returns from Beijing where he is an assistant coach with the U.S. men's basketball team.
