The 6-foot-1 Jennings is eligible to sign with another team and join their playoff roster if he clears waivers, per The Vertical. The No. 10 pick in the 2009 Draft, Jennings was originally signed by the Knicks as a free agent on Jul. 8, 2016. He had averaged 8.6 points, 4.9 assists and 24.6 minutes in 58 games.
Randle, waived by Philadelphia on Thursday, was signed to a partially guaranteed deal. In eight games for Philadelphia this season, he averaged 5.3 points over 9.3 minutes. Prior to a D-Leagues stint with the Westchester Knicks, Randle appeared in three preseason games for New York before being waived on Oct. 21.
Jeff Hornacek said Jennings wanted to play more minutes and his waiving will open up more minutes for Ron Baker.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) February 27, 2017
Hornacek says Randle and Baker will both serve as backup lead guards for NYK. Baker will probably have the 1st opportunity off the bench.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) February 27, 2017
