As first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the New York Knicks waived point guard Brandon Jennings and signed Chasson Randle Monday morning.

Knicks president Phil Jackson and other members of the front office reportedly did not like the mindset of Jennings, who told the organization he wanted to play for a playoff team. He’ll be eligible to do so because he was waived prior to March 1, provided he lands with a team that makes the postseason.

Aaron McMann of MLive.com reports that Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy spoke with Jennings’ agent, and the point guard is heading to the Charlotte Hornets.

However, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Washington Wizards are another team interested in Jennings.

Frank Isola of New York Daily News reported Monday afternoon, the Knicks could possibly release Derrick Rose.

The Knicks already paid Jennings the balance of his $5 Mil. contract and Rose is making $21.3 Mil. this season.

Knicks center Joakim Noah will reportedly undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and is likely to miss the rest of the season.
