The NBA is reporting that former Los Alamos center Alex Kirk has been waived by the New York Knicks.
Kirk, who was traded Monday as part of a convoluted deal between the Cleveland Cavaliers, Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder, will now be looking for a new team.
The move by New York to waive Kirk and Lou Amundson, who also went to the Knicks in the trade, was expected. The Knicks have shown signs that, after a disastrous 5-32 2014-15 season, they're ready to cut salary and rebuild for next year.
Because the waiver occurred today, the Knicks don't owe any salary to Kirk, who had a non-guaranteed contract with Cleveland.
