Chris Sheridan of ESPN reports:

If the Knicks felt a certain player named Jordan could help them in the playoffs, he would have been at practice Friday.

But Jordan, whose full name is Jerome Jordan (the center from Tulsa who the Knicks acquired last June after he was drafted at No. 44 in the second round by the Milwaukee Bucks), is going to spend the rest of the season in Serbia.

“He’s under contract over there, and there was some idea that maybe they weren’t doing the right things with him, and maybe we could get him. But I think now they’re straightened out, and so he’s playing over there,” team president Donnie Walsh said.

Jordan is shooting 73 percent while averaging 7.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 15 minutes per game for KK Hemofarm of the Adriatic League.
