He was cut to allow him to take care of his sick daughter. Pretty impressive move by the organization, allowing him to possibly go to another team in a city where she may receive the care she needs. Total class move by Utah. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2924068
I was about to express thoughts of disappointment over them cutting him after he came back from taking care of his daughter to help them win playoff games, but I am glad that is not the case and it sounds like they did the right thing.
Given how his play has deteriorated over the second half of the year and (hopefully) hit rock bottom in the playoffs, I'm thinking the timing of this announcement is pretty poor. Maybe he was high when he said it.
