Knicks Waive Zak Irvin

A day after signing him to their preseason roster, the Knicks have waived swingman Zak Irvin, the team announced today (via Twitter).

Irvin, who played college ball at Michigan from 2013-17, spent last season with the Westchester Knicks, New York’s G League affiliate. In 30 games (32.5 MPG), he averaged 11.8 PPG, 8.6 RPG, and 2.9 APG.

It looks like Irvin’s brief stay on New York’s active roster was designed him to get him some bonus money as he prepares to rejoin Westchester as a returning-rights player. By signing an Exhibit 10 deal, he’ll be eligible to earn a bonus worth up to $50K if he spends at least 60 days with New York’s G League affiliate.
