Late Monday afternoon, Metta World Peace tweeted this while thanking Knicks fans and New York City for their appreciation over his time as a member of the team.
Translation: his time is out in the Big Apple. The Knicks subsequently announced that both he and Beno Udrih have been waived.
Both veterans were signed this past offseason with the team figuring each one could...
The Knicks are mulling whether to use one of their two roster spots on power forward Ike Diogu, who impressed the team during training camp but was released, according to an NBA source.
The Knicks will have two open spots when Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih’s buyouts become official Monday. Diogu is in the D-League with Bakersfield, averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 rebounds. He...

The Lakers waived Shawne Williams on Tuesday before his contract became fully-guaranteed which brings down the roster size to 14 players. Could Mitch Kupchak and co. look to fill that roster spot relatively quickly?
My guess is no, though it probably wouldn’t hurt to sign a player to a 10-day contract and give them a trial run with the team.
One player who the Lakers may have their...
If and when Jeremy Tyler gets signed and makes it back to the Knicks active roster, can he help?
This is the million-dollar question that has New York buzzing.
First of all the fact that the Knicks have no suitable back-up to Tyson Chandler, Amar’e and Kenyon is inexcusable in every facet of basketball. New York had 3 “bigs” in camp, one of which did a really good job in pre...
The great thing about this blog is that we know our best BBall minds live in the comment section. So every once in awhile we want to make sure to acknowledge that truth and elevate some nuggets of wisdom to the penthouse.
Today, we welcome back Paul Noize, a long time Knick Fanatic, who gave us his view of how Coach Woody should handle the Knick ballers this season. We...

Rapper 50 Cent once wrote a song called “21 Questions”. This song basically questioned the devotion of a companion through good times and of course bad times, well in this case we have 21 questions Knicks fans are asking each other as the season opens:
1 - Will Stoudemire be healthy enough to play opening night after multiple knee surgeries?
2 - Will...

Knicks 95 Bucks 105
The New York Knicks fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 105-95 in the second to last preseason game. However, the big topic that will be talked about for the next 24 hours is: Who will make the Knicks final roster?
In tonight’s game, the Knicks didn’t play a lot of the guys fighting for a roster spot. Toure’ Murry and Cole Aldrich...

The Knicks finally hit the down slope of their preseason on Monday, as they travel to Toronto to take on the Raptors for the second time in the exhibition schedule. Here’s what we’ll be looking out for:
- More boos for Bargs! Andrea Bargnani will play twice in his old building before getting to play in his new one, and we’re sure the crowd in Toronto will continue to boo their...
Given their already existent payroll and whatnot, the Knicks' core group is already set. Any and all surprise contributors will emerge within the coming weeks from the handful of training camp invitees currently fighting to prove their worth.
Clearly, New York has had success experimenting with similar options in recent seasons. Everyone knows Jeremy Lin was truly one of...
Without the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Metta World Peace, Beno Udrih, and Kenyon Martin (and not to mention, the rehabbing Amar'e Stoudemire and J.R. Smith), the Celtics took advantage of the Knicks on Saturday. They separated themselves late in the game, and defeated New York by a score of 111-81.
That's the bad news. The good news is the...
The New York Knicks are looking for their young bigs like Cole Adrich to provide toughness in their minutes.
"When you're trying to make someone's ball club, bigs ... got to do dirty work," Mike Woodson said. "They've got to be nasty and take hard fouls and rebound and do all the dirty work that helps you win games. I'm not seeing that a lot right now...
Knicks burly center Cole Aldrich had a golden opportunity to make the club as a backup pivot but coach Mike Woodson called him out Saturday night saying he’s got to be more rugged if he’s going to stick.
Meanwhile one of Aldrich’s competitors for backup center undersized 6-foot-8 Ike Diogu was a beast off the bench scoring 21 points with eight rebounds a monster inside versus...
Before tonight’s game with the Knicks, coach Brad Stevens said it would be important for Boston to get off to a fast start. Well the Celtics did just that, burying all four of their three-pointers in the first 6 minutes to open-up an 18-4 lead. Ball movement was crisp, guys were moving and things looked good.
Knicks got themselves back into the ballgame in the 2nd, mostly due to...
Josh Powell, Ike Diogu and Cole Aldrich are competing for one of the final spots on the New York Knicks' regular season roster.
All three big men were signed to non-guaranteed contracts.
"One of them has a good chance to make it," Mike Woodson said.
The Knicks also signed Jeremy Tyler in the offseason, but he is recovering from an injury.
The New York Knicks have signed veteran forward Ike Diogu, who has been out of the NBA for nearly all of the last two seasons.
The team announced the move Friday.
The 6-foot-9 Diogu was the ninth overall pick in the 2005 draft by Golden State and also has played for Indiana, Portland, Sacramento, the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio. He appeared in two games for the Spurs in...

The post Ike Diogu Invited to Knicks Training Camp appeared first on Knickswag.com.
With training camp about to begin the New York Knicks sent out their final invitations, bringing their roster to 18 players. Today the two invited Josh Powell and Ike Diogu, both power forwards. An area that is definitely of need, especially with Jeremy Tyler recovering from stress fracture surgery.
The Knicks have filled out their training-camp roster by adding two journeyman...
