Ike Diogu PF NY 10 Months
The Knicks may consider signing free agent PF Ike Diogu once they've officially waived Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih.
Diogu played for New York during the preseason and he's currently averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 rebounds in the D-League. Even if he does earn a 10-day contract to support the Knicks' frontcourt, there's no reason to consider him in any fantasy leagues. The New York Post floats a few more names as potential targets, including Earl Clark, Ben Gordon, Antawn Jamison and Granger, but that list sounds more like informed speculation than a report.

Knicks big man Ike Diogu scored 21 points off the bench on Saturday to lead all scorers -- he made 6-of-11 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs, with eight rebounds.
If you're looking for a reason to ignore the boxscore for this game, here it is. Diogu scored two points in two appearances in 2011-12, he wasn't in the NBA last year, and he's not even certain to make the Knicks' roster this year. Reserve SG Toure' Murry was the Knicks' second-highest scorer with 16 points on 8-of-21 shooting.

PF Ike Diogu was signed to a non-guaranteed deal by the Knicks on Friday.
Diogu was the No. 9 pick by Golden State in 2005 and hasn't played in the NBA for nearly two years. The team is looking for depth at backup center and we're guessing if Cole Aldrich's knees can hold up that he'll be that guy, and not Diogu or Josh Powell.

The Suns waived Ike Diogu and Solomon Jones on Wednesday.
The departure of Diogu and Jones bodes well for Luke Zeller and Diante Garrett to make the team. Diogu did have a good offseason and even played in the Olympics, but he's probably going to have to continue his basketball career overseas.
