Default John Lucas & Kim Hughes Won't Return, Also No Sofo

Quote:
Also watching the team was former Interim Head Coach Kim Hughes and assistant John Lucas. Both indicated that they will not be back with the Clippers next season.

Quote:
Absent was Sofoklis "Sofo" Schortsanitis who Olshey said was excused from the team to join the Greek National Team in preparation for this summer's World Games.

The Clippers have been holding on Sofo's draft rights since 2003. Unfortunately he struggled through four games in Las Vegas, averaging 2.5 points a game on 33.3% shooting. He didn't record an assist while turning the ball over 2.2 times a game.

At this time, the team is not planning to sign Schortsanitis to a contract for the upcoming season.

Eric Pincus, Hoopsworld

Sad to see Lucas and Hughes not returning, and the Sofo news surprises me. Won't be surprised if we can deal his rights for a 2nd round pick or something.

My guess is that it was his choice not to stay. Last year when they hired him, didn't he say that he was only coming as a favor to Dunleavy? Maybe I'm wrong but I feel like that's why he agreed to join in the first place.

"We talk all the time and we've always stayed in touch," Dunleavy said. "It was just one of those situations where I started thinking about guys who were available. Guys that were really good who have a lot of energy.

"So I called him. He said, 'I wouldn't do this for a lot of guys. Yeah, I will. For you, I'll come.' "

Dunleavy said that the agreement would be for one year.

This is the article about the hiring of Lucas a year ago.

Lucas I understand because the team is no longer under the direction they were going in, pre Mike D firing. But if Hughes is being pushed out.. the he was done wrong. The guy's been payin' his dues..
