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.
I won't hate them (Of course, why should I? The DETROIT PISTONS are the WORLD CHAMPIONS. And, no, I won't stop saying that.), especially since I think every shot taken at Malone is hilarious, even if it was cheap.
