The Knicks will have two open spots when Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih’s buyouts become official Monday. Diogu is in the D-League with Bakersfield, averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 rebounds. He showed rebounding ability and a mid-range jumper for the Knicks during the preseason. New York Post

Carmelo Anthony was caught off guard, especially since World Peace had played more than seven minutes in Friday’s double-overtime loss in Orlando. “It’s sad to see them go, but this is the business of basketball ... it happened, and we’ve got to move on,” he said. “The buyouts kind of surprised me because [Friday] Metta seemed like he was in a good place. He was happy, he played . . . he was a different Metta.” Amar’e Stoudemire said, “I’m going to miss those guys. They want to play, they want to compete, they want to contend.” ESPN.com

The colorful World Peace sarcastically tweeted he plays only when the team is up by a lot of points or down a lot of points. New York Post
