They decided early on they didn't like him, nor want him. From playing Watson and Nelson over him to keeping him inactive a majority of the season despite the absence of Monta. I think it was doen completely out of spite, but yeah that's why I said "if" any playoff team would be interested in him. I'm not sure of any that would be either, but it would have been nice if both sides had that option.
