Here’s ESPN New York reporting on the Knicks, who may part ways with some players that aren’t essential pieces of their rotation. (Then again, a few players actually in the rotation are also not essential pieces of the rotation, but that’s another story.)

Knicks may say goodbye to Metta World Peace, Beno Udrih

The New York Knicks are in discussions to cut ties with forward Metta World Peace.

World Peace wrote on Twitter that his agent and the Knicks are working on a buyout.

League sources confirmed to ESPN New York that the team is in discussions with World Peace’s representatives to work on a buyout or outright release.

The Knicks, league sources said, are also in talks with Beno Udrih’s representatives to work on a release or buyout for the veteran point guard.

World Peace, a Queens native, signed with the Knicks over the summer. He inked a two-year deal worth approximately $1.6 million per season with a player option in the second year.
