Cole Aldrich had a career-high 19 points and the New York Knicks beat the Orlando Magic 80-79 on Saturday night in a game that had the lowest-scoring quarter in NBA history.
The New York Knicks have waived veteran forward Lamar Odom and re-signed center Cole Aldrich.
Last week I wrote about how Chandler might be the Knicks’ most irreplaceable player, so naturally less than a week later he fractures his leg and will miss anywhere from a month to a month and a half.
The 6-foot-11 Aldrich was drafted by New Orleans with the 11th pick in 2010 after three seasons at Kansas, where he helped the Jayhawks win the 2008 national championship. The Hornets traded his draft rights to Oklahoma City.
