knicks_movement The Knicks’ Ricky Ledo experiment is over. And the Thanasis Antetokounmpo saga should soon pick up steam.

Ledo, the 23-year-old shooting guard from Providence, was waived two days before his contract became partially guaranteed with a $100,000 payout. Ledo had a subpar summer league and people close to him were surprised at his limited minutes in Las Vegas (17 per game). Sources have indicated a great divide in the Knicks organization over the baggage-laden Ledo, with the front office more in love than the coaching staff with his skills. Knicks coach Derek Fisher has made it clear talent isn’t the most important determinant.

Ledo’s axing is expected to pave the way for the long-awaited signing of Antetokounmpo, according to sources. The defensive swingman was the Knicks’ 2014 second-round pick. Antetokounmpo, 23, had an up-and-down season in the D-League, but should find his way to training camp on some variation of a partial guarantee.

Antetokounmpo’s summer-league showing was erratic too, but ended with a bang — a 7-for-7, one-block, one-steal, 17-point party. “It left us something to think about,’’ Fisher said after summer league ended.

Antetokounmpo passed up lucrative deals in Europe last summer to play for $25,000 in the D-League. He has been an enigma, with a boatload of energy, but low basketball IQ and an erratic jump shot. -KnicksRush

The New York Knicks Waive Ricky Ledo after not having an impressive Las Vegas Summer League the Knicks saved about $100,000 because they had to waive Ledo before August 1st because if he had made the opening day roster he was guaranteed $200,000, so
good move by the Knicks.
