Big man Ivan Rabb's time with the New York Knicks has ended before he even played a game for them. 

New York waived Rabb on Monday and later signed Kenny Wooten to two-way contract Tuesday.

Rabb entered the league as a second-round pick in the 2017 draft out of California and played a combined 85 games in his first two seasons for the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged 5.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per night in those contests and signed a two-way contract with New York in October.

However, he has played exclusively in the G League this season for Westchester.

Wooten was a two-time Pac-12 All-Defense selection during his collegiate career with the Oregon Ducks but went undrafted in 2019. He played for the Knicks during summer league and showed enough in the G League to warrant another look.

The 21-year-old is averaging 7.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game this season in the G League.

The 11-29 Knicks are in action again Tuesday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
