The Knicks may consider signing free agent PF Ike Diogu once they've officially waived Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih.
Diogu played for New York during the preseason and he's currently averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 rebounds in the D-League. Even if he does earn a 10-day contract to support the Knicks' frontcourt, there's no reason to consider him in any fantasy leagues. The New York Post floats a few more names as potential targets, including Earl Clark, Ben Gordon, Antawn Jamison and Danny Granger, but that list sounds more like informed speculation than a report.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Knicks big man Ike Diogu scored 21 points off the bench on Saturday to lead all scorers -- he made 6-of-11 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs, with eight rebounds.

If you're looking for a reason to ignore the boxscore for this game, here it is. Diogu scored two points in two appearances in 2011-12, he wasn't in the NBA last year, and he's not even certain to make the Knicks' roster this year. Reserve SG Toure' Murry was the Knicks' second-highest scorer with 16 points on 8-of-21 shooting.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

PF Ike Diogu was signed to a non-guaranteed deal by the Knicks on Friday.

Diogu was the No. 9 pick by Golden State in 2005 and hasn't played in the NBA for nearly two years. The team is looking for depth at backup center and we're guessing if Cole Aldrich's knees can hold up that he'll be that guy, and not Diogu or Josh Powell.

The Knicks have invited PF Ike Diogu to training camp.

Diogu has played for the Warriors, Pacers, Kings, Blazers, Clippers and Spurs, but he hasn't appeared in more than 36 games since 2006-07 and was out of the league last season.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

The Suns waived Ike Diogu and Solomon Jones on Wednesday.

The departure of Diogu and Jones bodes well for Luke Zeller and Diante Garrett to make the team. Diogu did have a good offseason and even played in the Olympics, but he's probably going to have to continue his basketball career overseas.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Suns sign F/C Ike Diogu to a non-guaranteed contract.

Diogu will be brought in for training camp as the Suns search for reinforcements up front. The former Arizona State star has had his career derailed by knee issues, but he's not giving up his NBA career without a fight.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Spurs waived F/C Ike Diogu.

Diogu's career has been derailed by knee problems, but we expect to see him pop up on another team's roster eventually.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Spurs signed F/C Ike Diogu to a 1-year deal, a source tells SI's Sam Amick.

Diogu is a former lottery pick and most recently played with the Los Angeles Clippers. However, after microfracture knee surgery two years ago, he has lost most of his burst and we would be surprised if he ever resurfaced with any fantasy value.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

The Clippers waived forward Ike Diogu on Friday.

Diogu has talent, but has been slowed by severe knee problems his entire career. Look for him to possibly land with another team at some point this season.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Ike Diogu scored 18 points off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Magic, hitting 7-of-10 shots from the field to go with five rebounds and no other statistics in 22 minutes.

The minutes and production simply aren't there for anything but massive formats, but he has shown flashes of ability in his time on the court. Ignore him, however, until he shows some consistency.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Ike Diogu double-doubled off the bench against the Hawks on Friday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting with 10 rebounds and no other statistics in 22 minutes.

He shown flashes of ability, but still hasn't produced enough to be owned outside of truly massive formats. He belongs on waivers.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Ike Diogu hit 5-of-7 shots for 10 points and six rebounds in 18 minutes off the Clippers bench on Wednesday.

He's played pretty well lately for the Clippers and at least deserves a look from owners in deeper leagues. But he won't become relevant as long as Blake Griffin can walk.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Ike Diogu had seven points and eleven rebounds in Sunday's win over the Lakers.

With the Clippers short staffed in the front court and Blake Griffin in foul trouble early, Diogu saw some extra run. He would have had an impressive line if he would have hit his shots (1-of-6 from the floor). As of now he doesn't hold much value but occasionally is capable of putting up big front court stats.

Ike Diogu - F/C - Knicks

Ike Diogu had 13 points and two rebounds in Friday's loss.

Even Ike Diogu, who has no fantasy value, can play well against the Warriors.
