More on Ivan Rabb Free Agency

Ian Begley: NYK was aware other teams had interest in Kenny Wooten - including 1 team that was prepared to make an offer, per SNY sources. So it makes sense that they’d act quickly to create a roster spot for him. They’ll waive 2-way player Ivan Rabb, source confirms. Stadium first reported.
The New York Knicks announced today that the team has signed forward Ivan Rabb to a Two-Way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Rabb, 6-10, 220-pounds, holds career averages of 5.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 14.6 minutes in 85 games (18 starts) over two seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Sacramento, CA-native recorded 5.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists over 14.7 minutes in 49 games (13 starts) with the Grizzlies last season.
The 6-10, 220-pound Rabb played parts of two seasons with Memphis, averaging 5.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in 85 games (18 starts.) Rabb is not with the Knicks in San Antonio. The Knicks backed out of a verbal agreement with Wilkes because of an undisclosed illness. The Post reported they hadn’t ruled out signing Wilkes later in the year. The Knicks’ other two-way signee is Kadeem Allen.
Bobby Marks: Memphis will have a $12.5M cap hit on Miles Plumlee and $392K for Ivan Rabb. Since the Rabb contract becomes guaranteed on Oct. 19, any team claiming the former second-round pick would inherit his $1.6M guaranteed contract.

Heat, Mavs to pursue Kyle Lowry?

Yet while New Orleans has gained momentum toward landing Lowry, the race for his services still does consist of several suitors. Miami and Dallas are expected to aggressively pursue the All-Star point guard, sources said, as Lowry’s close relationship with Heat centerpiece Jimmy Butler is often mentioned among league personnel.

Bulls targeting Derrick Rose?

Regardless of that outcome, there are strong indications from league sources that mutual interest exists between Derrick Rose and his storied hometown franchise, where he claimed league MVP honors in 2010-11. It’s unclear how Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau can stand in the way of the Bulls’ potential advances, and Chicago will need to shed contracts to bring on two ball-handlers at such expected salaries.
