Jackson didn’t text a lot of players after he was dismissed, but he texted Ndour, whom the Knicks cut hours before free agency Friday after their second summer-league practice. Had Ndour, 25, lasted until midnight, his $1.3M pact would have been guaranteed. “Basically they needed some space in the salary cap,’’ Ndour said after the Knicks explained the decision. “That’s what they say. It had nothing to do with basketball. Just business.’’
“All I can say is Phil is the main reason I was here with the Knicks,’’ Ndour said when asked if this would’ve happened had Jackson not been canned. “Whether I’d stay with the Knicks or not, I have no idea. Ndour said he was surprised at the firing. “But it’s the nature of the business. He texted me and wished me good luck. I got caught in the NBA budget zone.’’
