NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks waived guards Jared Jordan, Demetris Nichols and Walker Russell, reducing their roster to the regular-season limit of 15 on Thursday.

Jordan averaged 4.5 minutes in six preseason games. Nichols averaged 7.8 minutes in five games and Russell averaged 5.0 minutes in three games.

Jordan averaged 17.2 points and 8.7 assists last season for Marist, becoming the first player to lead Division I in assists for two consecutive seasons since Avery Johnson in 1987-88.
