Knicks waive Ndour before deadline to guarantee salary

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Knicks have waived forward Maurice Ndour before his 2017-18 contract would have become guaranteed.

Ndour would have been due $1.3 million if he was still on the roster after Friday, so the Knicks saved some money ahead of free agency.

A native of Senegal, Ndour averaged 3.1 points and 2.0 rebounds in 32 games, including four starts, last season.
