Found June 16, 2013 on RealGM:
Jerome Jordan will play on New York's summer league team, but he wants a permanent role on the Knicks next season. "I'm ready to play," Jordan said. "It was a tough year with the team [in 2011-12]. There was a lot of pressure. I'm just trying to be physically and mentally ready to play on both ends of the floor. "Defensively, block shots and rebound, and then on the offensive end, just try to be comfortable out there." Jordan said he was close to signing with the Memphis Grizzlies last fall.
