The Knicks announced they have waived three players: PG Trey Burke, SG Xavier Rathan-Mayes, and F Nigel Hayes.
Burke was signed by the Knicks on Oct. 11, and did not appear in a preseason game. The former All-Rookie First-Team selection back in 2013 averaged five points, 1.8 assists, and shot 45.5 percent from the field last season with the Wizards.
Hayes and Rathan-Mayes were picked up by the Knicks after going undrafted back in June. The 6-foot-8 Hayes appeared in four of the team's five preseason games where he scored nine points in 33 minutes.
Rathan-Mayes appeared in three games scoring only two points in 28 minutes.
