NEW YORK (AP) -The Knicks kept tinkering with their roster two days before training camp, acquiring the draft rights to Jared Jordan on Sunday and working toward a buyout of Dan Dickau's contract.
The Knicks traded cash considerations to the Los Angeles Clippers in a deal that sends last season's NCAA assists leader back to New York. The Clippers took Jordan with the 45th pick in the NBA draft.
Jordan averaged 17.2 points and 8.7 assists last season for Marist, becoming the first player to lead Division I in assists for two consecutive seasons since Avery Johnson in 1987-88. Jordan then performed well in Orlando predraft camp to play his way into the draft.
Jordan could compete for a backup point guard spot that will become open once the Knicks have completed their buyout of Dickau, who was acquired from Portland in the Zach Randolph trade in June. Dickau isn't expected to be in camp when it opens Tuesday in Charleston, S.C.
