Quincy Acy has started at power forward in the Knicks' past three preseason games. But it seems there remains an open competition for the job.

Derek Fisher reiterated on Friday that "things are still open and fluid" with his starting lineups. One of the biggest question marks surrounds the starting power forward.

Acy has played well in the past three games. But Jason Smith has also impressed the coaching staff.

"Jason Smith has played some good minutes for us the last couple games since he’s been back and there’s no reason why he couldn’t maybe crack into that [starting lineup]," Fisher said Friday.

Smith missed the first two preseason games due to the birth of his daughter. He had 14 points and five rebounds in 24 minutes in the Knicks' win over Philly on Tuesday.

Smith is competing with Acy, Amar'e Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani for minutes at power forward.

Bargnani has missed all but one of the Knicks' preseason games due to a hamstring injury.

Fisher has said that Bargnani's injury makes it difficult to evaluate his options at power forward.

The coach praised the starting lineup featuring Acy on Friday but hinted that he may change the lineup for Monday's preseason game against Milwaukee.

"Depending on how things materialize with Andrea over the next few days, we may or may not keep it the same," Fisher said.

Fisher impressed with J.R.: J.R. Smith has made some news recently by saying it will take the Knicks a few months to learn the triangle (he's right). But Smith's adjustment to the system thus far has impressed his head coach.

"Jay has been great from Day 1. He’s engaged, he’s asking questions. He wants to get this right," Fisher said. "And we as a staff we appreciate it and value it tremendously. The more guys we have like that the better. And so you can see on a daily basis, he’s picking more things up. The type of questions he asks are with understanding of most of it and then maybe there’s one thing to add to it. But he’s coming along really well and we’re looking forward to what he can do for us as he gets more comfortable."

Fisher was asked Friday if he felt the need to address the issue of maturity or off-court conduct with Smith, as ex-coach Mike Woodson had over the past two seasons when Smith got into trouble with the league and the team.

"What I've tried to do with all of our guys, not just J.R., is kind of manage our relationship based on our relationship and not the relationships they have may have had with other people and other coaches," Smith said. "I can only measure our relationship on our experiences and so far it hasn't been necessary to address anyone about maturity and accountability and trying to be one of the many leaders that we'll need within our team. J's been great in that fashion and I don't see any reason why he wouldn't continue. He's a smart player and he's continuing to figure out ways to be effective within what we're doing."

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- If it were up to Carmelo Anthony, teams would play fewer sets of consecutive games.

“I don’t know if that will ever happen, but that’s the dream,” Anthony said after practice Saturday. “Maybe it will happen 10 years from now when I’m out of the league.”

The Knicks play 20 back-to-backs this season.

LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki made similar suggestions earlier this week when they said they’d prefer fewer games in the schedule.

Said Anthony: “Fewer back-to-backs is something we should be talking about.”

The conversation over minutes and games was sparked by the NBA’s decision to play a 44-minute preseason game -- which will be held Sunday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

To Anthony, the issue doesn’t lie as much with the minutes in a game than it does with the amount of back-to-backs.

“You go on a road trip and you come back, and you’re gone for 10, 11 days 12 days, and you’ve got a back-to-back the last two days, it’s always that last game that someway, somehow we always seem to get a TV game that last game. So it affects you,” he said.

Cole DNPs 'not a demotion': Derek Fisher explained why he decided not to play Cole Aldrich in the past two preseason games. The coach said it had nothing to do with Aldrich’s performance and everything to do with wanting to see Jason Smith, who missed the first two games while his wife gave birth.

“Jason Smith originally was out for personal reasons, so once Jason was back, Cole had played some, it was important that we got Jason some minutes so we could see how he might be able to help us,” Fisher said. “[Cole’s absence] was just a byproduct of that, nothing else. Cole’s been solid and has done everything we’re asking him to do, so it wasn’t a demotion or any reason related to his performance, just continuing to try and find the best way to put our team together.”

Not Fishing for trouble: For those wondering, Fisher said he hasn't played any pickup basketball recently. But Fisher, who retired from playing last season following an 18-year playing career, is still working out. “I was very fortunate to, other than a right foot injury 14 or 15 years ago, [to have] no other major injuries during my career,” Fisher said. “And I am not going to injure myself seriously playing basketball after my basketball career. That’s for sure.”

STAT sits out: Andrea Bargnani, Travis Outlaw and Amar'e Stoudemire missed practice Saturday. Stoudemire was out for a recovery day. Bargnani has missed the past three games because of a hamstring injury. His status for Monday’s game is unclear.

In a scene during the upcoming documentary on his triangle offense, Knicks team president Phil Jackson said if Carmelo Anthony wins a championship in New York, you can refer to the club’s third title as ‘‘home grown’’ because of Anthony’s Brooklyn roots.

“We love the fact that we were able to sign Carmelo,’’ Jackson said in Spike Lee’s MSG Network documentary, “What Is the Triangle Offense?”

“We like the fact that he wants to take on this challenge,” Jackson said. “He’s not just going to skip over to some team that’s loaded and try to have a drop-in championship. This one’s going to be home grown.”

Jackson was referring to Anthony’s July dalliance with the Bulls and Rockets. Experts felt if Anthony signed with Chicago and formed an alliance with point guard Derrick Rose, the Bulls would have been among the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the Finals.

Anthony, who was born in Brooklyn and lived there until the start of junior high school, said as recently as Thursday he re-signed with the Knicks because it would be more special to win one here than anywhere else.

Jackson added further praise in the film, according to excerpts provided to The Post, saying Anthony has the promise to be “untouchable.’’

“Carmelo’s got the mentality to bring us ahead,’’ Jackson said. “I said this about Carmelo — great shooter, has the ability to get his shot off. There’s still a step ahead for Carmelo’s game to get him to that position to where he’s untouchable.”

The documentary premieres Friday at 10:30 p.m. on MSG Network after the Knicks’ final preseason game against the Raptors in Montreal. The Knicks’ superfan/filmmaker interviewed Knicks coach Derek Fisher, a.ssociate coach Kurt Rambis and a.ssistant Jim Cleamons, as well as Knicks legend/broadcaster Walt Frazier and players Amar’e Stoudemire, Iman Shumpert and Pablo Prigioni about the scheme that has netted Jackson a record 11 coaching championships.

Bill Bradley, Jackson’s teammate on their lone two title teams, said in the film, “Phil was the master at getting players to do what he wanted them to do [as a teammate]. In retrospect, he had all the attributes to be a great coach — he was analytical, unselfish, fiercely competitive, and could relate to each player individually based up on who they were.”

Frazier, a teammate of Jackson’s in their rookie season, remembered plenty of late nights.

“Our rookie year, we weren’t playing, both of us were defensive specialists when we came into the league,’’ Frazier noted in the documentary. “Every city we went to, we went out — Detroit, San Francisco, L.A. We went sightseeing and got back the hotel just before it was time to get on the bus to go to the game.”

Last Sunday, Jackson was asked about Lee’s film and called him “an avid Knicks fan who doesn’t know anything about basketball.’’

However, Jackson revealed it was the Knicks who went to Lee, asking him to produce the documentary.

Hmmm...

So 2nd Unit is

Cole / Bargs
STAT / Quincy
JR / Early / Outlaw
Timmy
Larkin / Pablo

What Fish needs to do is reduce the rotation to 10 dudes... max 11. Outlaw doesn't need PT. Something tells me Bargs is gonna be chillin on that hamstring for a good 2 weeks til he can run without pain... Early ain't gonna see many minutes in the first few weeks, but I hope he does.

Word is we might cut Outlaw & keep Wear. Which I'm cool with. Him & his brother were big underachievers at UNC, but he's matured some and could be useful, at least on the Westchester team since he won't get much run with us.


btw... it's off topic but somehow I sense a mid-season trade with this roster... Idk why but I do. With us getting way better from it too. Looking forward to this season.
