Early was stripped of his recently-signed contract with Greek club AEK due to disciplinary reasons Saturday, freelance reporter David Pick reports.
Early, now a free agent, will have to look elsewhere for work. It didn't appear he had any available NBA suitors for the upcoming season, so it seems probable that he'll continue to be overseas or try his luck in the G-League.
Early, after considering several NBA training camp offers, has opted to sign a contract with the Greek club AEK, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.
The last time Early played in the NBA was during the 2015-16 season, when he posted 1.8 points and 1.5 rebounds across 9.1 minutes per game over 17 appearances. The former 34th overall pick spent last season in the D-League, averaging 10.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 block across 17.7 minutes over 14 games. Going overseas may afford him more consistent playing time, which could be good for his development. At just 26-years-old, the 6-foot-8 forward certainly has time to attempt an NBA comeback if he so chooses.
Early (hamstring) was waived by the Knicks on Friday.
Early is still rehabbing a hamstring injury, and while he agreed to re-sign with the Knicks earlier this month, it was with the plan to ultimately be waived and join the team's D-League affiliate in Westchester. That appears to still be the plan, as Early will slowly be able to make his way back to the floor in the D-League.
