Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

The New York Times reports that the Knicks signed Sun Yue to a partially guaranteed contract.

The 6'9" guard played a total of 28 minutes for the Lakers last season, and there's a chance he won't even make the Knicks' regular season roster.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

The Lakers on Friday waived guard Sun Yue.

Yue skipped summer league to play in China, which appears to have sealed his fate. They're also going to have to pay some luxury tax, and dumping Yue will save them about $1.5 million. He wasn't set to get many minutes anyway.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

Lakers assistant GM Ronnie Lester said on Saturday that Sun Yue might be the "odd-man out" of the regular season roster.

Yue has skipped summer league for two consecutive years, opting to play overseas, which doesn't sit well with the Lakers. L.A. wants a maximum of 13 players heading into the season, and Yue is not a significant role player anyway.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

Sun Yue, who has been playing in the D-League, sprained his ankle on Monday and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Not that he would have had any fantasy value over the duration of the season anyway. Sun finishes his rookie year having averaged 0.6 points in 10 games and will need to make a significant leap to claim a spot in the Lakers' rotation in 2009-10.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

The Lakers have sent Sun Yue back to the D-League.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

Sun Yue will return to the Lakers as soon as Friday, according to the L.A. Times.

Yue averaged 10 points on 37.5% shooting with 3.3 assists per game for the D-Fenders, prompting Phil Jackson to say "his stats haven't been outstanding." Yue will not be a fantasy factor this year, but China's Magic Johnson could emerge down the road.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

Rookie Sun Yue made his NBA debut on Sunday and scored four points on 2-of-3 shooting with no rebounds or assists.

Yue got activated when Luke Walton left the stadium with a respiratory infection, and was sent into the game when the Lakers started to blow out the Bucks. "China's Magic Johnson" got a warm ovation from the fans, who are intrigued by his size for being a PG.

Sun Yue - G/F - Knicks

Rookie Sun Yue (foot) has rejoined the Lakers on their road trip.

He's only with the team because Phil Jackson likes having an extra body around for practice, and he could end up the D-League soon. No fantasy value here.
