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

“I really don’t know if that’s going to change anything or not,’’ Udrih said. “It’s disappointing,’’ added Udrih, who turned down the Spurs last summer. “I thought [I was] going to have a different role. That’s the direction they’re going. I’ve kept working hard to stay in shape. That’s all I can control right now.” New York Post

Udrih told The Post the Wizards tried signing him this summer and have made a pitch to the Knicks. ESPN.com has reported the Nuggets have offered the Knicks small forward Jordan Hamilton, a former first-round pick. “It’s not in my control,’’ Udrih said. “I’m here right now. If something happens it happens. We’ll see [Thursday]. Right now I’m going to relax and wait.’’ New York Post
