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."

Yea, this is a good thing i guess... but wierd for sure.
Hopefully there could be a change and I think if anderson shows up to camp and stuff there will be a lot of bad noise in the clubhouse
When you have discovered a cancer, you must remove as soon as possible to prevent it from becoming even worse, no matter how much you have to pay!
Where there is hope, there can be faith
Where there is faith, miracles can occur
There is no way the Knicks are buying Anderson out, its just too much money and I can't think of one team that would take that BUM...only chance I see is if he is added in a Kurt Thomas trade. Now what I found interesting was that comment in one of the articles about him being on the roster but not being allowed near the team....NOT THAT WOULD BE SOME **** I WOULD LIKE TO SEE...LOL
"There will not be a buyout," Thomas added. "You can count on that."
nope, there won't be any buyouts, isiah will find a spot for him, maybe water boy?
yeai found that interesting also, as if anderson were a trouble maker...
I like Rasheed Wallace, but IT would rather have Wallace around his players than Anderson... weird to me but whatever...
Imagine there were a huge fight and the rest of the team beat up shandon
shandon anderson can be just a good player comming from the bench... anything else
