With the Knicks’ dearth at center, Jordan is penciled in on the club’s roster for next season. But Jordan wants to get more playing time in case the lockout is extended. The lockout prevented Jordan from playing in the summer league. As Jordan negotiated with European teams, the Knicks were fearful he would sign a pact with no out clause, which could have prevented him from joining the Knicks this season.

Personally I love this. He's one of the few Knicks I want to see go overseas (with Melo, Amar'e and Chauncey being the last 3). More playing should help him continue to improve and get him in a better position to play for us when he comes over (which apparently is when the lockout is over). Hopefully, this actually doesn't matter and we get a new CBA before missing any games, but that doesn't look realistic anymore. Either way, with an out clause, he should be an official NY Knick whenever the season starts. Personally, I have high hopes for Jerome to come in and play meaningful minutes as a rookie.
