This guy needs to be cut now. I don't think I want him on this team. I think in his head that he must believe he's the best player in the league. I see a very Steve Francis like career for him... Only worse!
He may have skills and he may be able to shoot the 3 pretty well but he seems like an arrogant kid.
First he doesnt want to go to Europe; he feels he's too good for that and he probably feels he belongs in the NBA (could be true but I dont know much about him). Now he's saying cut me or else I'll cry? What's wrong with this kid, no team will want him and it'll happen; the kid will end up in Europe eventually; it's almost inevitable.
Can you imagine this kid making the final roster? If he doesnt get playing time he's going to try and make some kind of noise which will be a distraction to what this team has going for them. He doesnt deserve anything.
It's also why rookie Demetris Nichols, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, has asked that he be cut if he doesn't have a fair shot at a roster spot. The Knicks have denied Nichols' request, despite the fact that he has seen very little time not only in preseason games but in practice. Nichols did not play last night.
"We haven't made up our mind on anyone," Thomas said before the game. "At the end of this process, we'll let you know."
If the Knicks waived Nichols now, he'd have a week to catch on with another NBA team. But the expectation is the Knicks will hold on to him until the very last moment - the 15-man rosters are due Oct. 31 at 6 p.m. - which would leave very few opportunities.
