Vildoza, 26, is 6-foot-2 and signed a four-year deal in May, but none of the money was guaranteed. Per Bobby Marks of ESPN, the Knicks would have had to $3.32 million to Vildoza had he still been on the roster as of 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 21.
Vildoza played for Argentina in the most recent Olympic games, then appeared in two summer league games with the Knicks, but failed to score.
Along with that, Vildioza “reported to camp still with complicated ankle issues and hasn’t practiced,” added Marc Berman of the New York Post.
The Knicks now have 19 players on the training camp roster. That includes 14 with guaranteed deals. They still have one two-w3ay spot available.
