Isiah Thomas is so committed to removing Shandon Anderson from his life that he is willing to give him $24 million not to play basketball. According to a Knicks source, Thomas informed the veteran guard not to report to work come Monday, the first official day of training camp. That move would appear to be a first step in negotiating a buyout agreement with Anderson, who has three years remaining on his contract worth $24 million. However, Thomas, the Knicks' president, said last night that the team has no plans to "give money for nothing." "There will not be a buyout," Thomas added. "You can count on that."
