With injured big-man Jeremy Tyler no longer a lock for a roster spot, the chances that 6-foot-11 center Cole Aldrich, a former lottery pick from Kansas, making the team have spiked.
“We can’t wait on him,’’ (Knicks coach Mike) Woodson said. “I got to groom some of these other guys.”
“Bigs in the league are needed — a guy like myself who’s young and hasn’t been injured,’’ Aldrich said.
“I like him,’’ Woodson said. “He’s a big guy who can defend the post. He’s awkward a little offensively, but he gets it done. He makes buckets around the rim.’’
