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.
Funny you should mention that. Shortly after Michael Jordan returned to the Bulls, and Magic Johnson re-joined the Lakers as a backup power forward, I saw a commercial. It was for some beer, I guess-- I don't remember.
