    They're probably gonna cut him next year when there's less money to buy out. IMO, it's wasted money anyway, might as well get a roster spot. Doesn't make sense to just waste a much needed roster spot.

    Agreed, I know they don't want to pay a guy for nothing, but what has he ever done that is more than nothing anyhow. Perhaps it's like Marbury, they are afraid a contender will scoop him up hoping he can recover in time for a playoff push

    I heard that the same thing that happened to starbury happened to James. But in Burger King James' situation, he found out that the team was providing him with burgers that were fat free.

    he might not play again in the NBA, i read in an article on realgm, so we get out of his contract earlier then expected

    and why hasn't Ewing Jr been brought back yet?!?

    At this point any James related news (Jerome that is) should be ignored. What a waste of air that dude turned to be. Not only he is a horrible baller but also fragile as fvck. A buyout should be considered sooner than later. I see absolutely no market for him. What GM in his right state of mind would want to trade for him?

    We still don't have a roster spot. Walsh is waiting for the league to decide if Mobley's retirement can get us a DPE, which is an exception of 4.4 million to sign a player, or trade for a player of that salary or under.

    Yeah, definitely. I think he would be alot better than Jeffries. Their defense would probably be about the same, and Ewing can actually finish around the basket.

    Thumbs up We now know he is officially gone

    If anybody remembers there was an article out with Jerome James saying that if he plays a few minutes and "shows" people what he could do then he would happily buy out his contract...........and then I saw him play the next game for 3 minutes which shows that Donnie wants him gone quickly.

    James will buy out his contract knowing that he can't play basketball anymore and an Achilles injury for a guy his size is hard to get out of.

    He's done....maybe for his career...and his contract is most likely done with after this year.

    This is good news for us.

    Default What a waste!

    Wow, I read an article on Yahoo that said James only played 10 minutes this season! In 2005 he signed a 5 year $30 million dollar contract. If the guy is getting paid that kind of money he should get into good shape so he doesn't get injured. WHAT A WASTE!

    We all knew he's not going to help our team either now or in the future so the only bad news is that he's taking a spot on our roster. I wish he will retire next week and give us that roster spot back. Knicks will have to pay him anyway but this way Walsh can bring back Ewing jr or sign a SG. God knows we need more bodies.

    Marbury, Steve Francis, Jalen Rose, Mo Taylor or whoever Jerome James to me was the worst deal made by Isiah "I will bring a championship to NY" Thomas. He probably made more money per game played than any player in NBA history.
