Aw, bummer, the Mavericks signed Maurice Ndour

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Maurice Ndour was awesome in Summer League. Maybe too awesome for the Knicks' own good. Other teams who fancied Ndour could outbid the Knicks for his services, and they did:

It's tough. You don't want to overreact to a Summer League performance and give a dude real, guaranteed money and a roster spot before he even proves himself in exhibition games, but you also don't want to lose a guy you like. Ndour's effort around the glass, his sense for the Triangle, and the range on his jumper were pretty enticing.

One can only hope the Knicks' reluctance to bite off as much money (guaranteed money, which is far from a given for camp invites) as the post-DeAndre Mavericks did doesn't come back to haunt them. I hope whatever remaining contracts they're gonna hand out don't look stupid in this context.

Good luck in Dallas, Maurice! I enjoyed our time together.

Update: Here are the details of Ndour's contract from the Mavs:

Yeah, that's a big commitment.
