Default Rockets waive Luther Head

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6286398.html

Quote:
With his playing time scarce and time running out on his contract, Rockets guard Luther Head was waived on Saturday to beat the deadline for players to be eligible for the postseason.

Head will likely be replaced on the roster by high-scoring NBA Development League forward James White of the Anaheim Arsenal. The Rockets were close to signing White to a 10-day contract, a person with knowledge of the move said on Saturday, and White was held out of Saturday’s game.

maybe he can come to the Lakers and we can make shirts with his photo on it that say "Gimme some head".

If Head was as good in real life as he is in NBA 2k9, he would be a top 5 point guard in the league. Too bad in real life actually being able to run an offense is important. He's young and talented though, I expect to see him get picked up soon by a contender as a shooter off the bench.

I hope he goes to the Suns or Knicks. They're fire away offense could really revive his career. Also, with the Suns it'll be great to see him in orange again. Also there's a lot of Illini Alumni in Arizona, as Jerry Colangelo is an Illini.

Two seasons ago he was a at-least-1-three-pointer-a-game guy. Now he's out of the job.

Some NBA teams that need a three-points shooter will sign he soon, I hope......

We need his three point shooting bad on the Grizzlies. Hopefully we scoop him up. I made a Free Luther Head thread a couple months ago. I hope where ever he goes, he finds some playing time.

I wonder where he will end up...I can see him playing a few(5-10) minutes for a championship team this year. And possibly help close up the season and take more minutes to rest the big names.
