Plumlee was waived by the Clippers on Saturday, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Plumlee was a relative longshot to make the team, as he scored just 40 total points and 51 total rebounds last season in 21 appearances with the Knicks. With the news, he'll likely seek work in the G-League.
Plumlee struggled to get on the court last season, appearing in just 21 games. He also didn't see much work when he took the floor, averaging just 8.1 minutes per contest and posting 1.9 points and 2.4 rebounds. The nature of the deal likely means he'll have to fight for a roster spot on the Clippers, though the team isn't particularly deep at the center slot.
Plumlee scored 14 points (7-10 FG, 0-2 FT) and added 11 rebounds and one block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 114-113 win over the 76ers.
Plumlee, a rookie, appeared in only 20 games this season, averaging only 8.1 minutes per game. Wednesday's performance easily set his career highs in points, rebounds, and minutes.
Plumlee will start during Thursday's tilt against the Wizards, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.
With Kristaps Porzingis (back) a late scratch to Thursday's game, Plumlee will draw the start. The move is somewhat surprising considering that Plumlee has played in just 17 games this season, averaging 1.2 points and 1.8 rebounds across 6.8 minutes per game.
Plumlee provided five points (1-2 FG, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, and two steals in 12 minutes during Sunday's 110-94 loss to the Celtics.
Plumlee finished with career bests in steals and made free throws while matching his career high in scoring. With the Knicks playing out the string and resting most of the veterans who aren't already injured, the rookie big man who has seen double-digit minutes just five times this season could earn decent playing time over the final five games. With that being said, Plumlee is merely a dart throw in daily leagues.
