If a NBA franchise is trying to develop a player for the future, an NBA playoff race is probably not the best to do it. That's probably why the New York Knicks decided to re-assign center Jerome Jordan to the NBA D-League on Monday.
The 7-footer, who has split time overseas but has seen a lot of the bench while with the Knicks, will play for the Erie Bayhawks. In just 19 games with the Knicks this season, Jordan averaged 4.8 minutes, 1.4 points and 1.2 rebounds.
Reports have Jordan joining the Bayhawks on Tuesday, and will be avaible to play for them Saturday night against Sioux Falls Skyforce on Saturday. During his two previous trips to Erie, Jordan averaged 18.0 ppg, 8.6 rpg in 32.6 mpg.
