Jerome Jordan is close to signing with the Knicks
The Knicks drafted Jerome Jordan in the second round of the 2010 draft and he has yet to play for the team. Jerome was defected to playing in Slovenia during the lock-out with a opt-out clause to return to the NBA once the lock-out was lifted.
Marc Berman of the NYPost is reporting that he is close to finally signing with the sqaud:
Last season, Jordan played in the Serbian League for Hemofarm. The Knicks originally paid Milwaukee $1 million for his draft rights. After the Carmelo Anthony trade in February got rid of many of the team’s taller players, Mike D’Antoni said he hoped Jordan would play for the Knicks next season.
Known as a good low-post scorer and potential shotblocker, the Knicks felt it was time to start grooming him and adding even more size to a roster that finished last season as among the smallest teams in the league.
