Udrih, MWP officially bought out

Beno Udrih and Metta World Peace have both officially been bought out and waived by the Knicks.

“We are disappointed that it did not work out for Beno and Metta here in New York,” GM Steve Mills said. “We thank them for their contributions this season and wish them well.”


World Peace said he has been bought out from “my favorite team as a kid.”

He tweeted this:

worst interview I've ever heard Metta on Michael K.


Instead of asking MWP if the players have given up on Woodson

he's asking him "what is your favorite movie", What is the one thing you would bring to a desert island?"


OMG….

Metta on ESPN now, says he's 100% healthy doesn't understand why the Knicks wanted him out. Also said he never asked Woody for PT, just stayed ready.  


Here is a guy who loved being here and plays both sides of the ball, pretty darn well.  


What am I missing here?

Also, even though they just got Collins, I'd laugh if Metta went to the Nets

Wow, Mills speaks.

I thought he was a fictional character.

For starters, he could have minimized the Knicks' problems by separating their two worst defenders: Tim Hardaway Jr. and Amar'e Stoudemire. Instead, he played the two together for much of the game, even as they struggled to contain the Orlando's pick-and-roll game. Stoudemire finished with minus-19 rating in just a shade under 18 minutes on Friday.

New York will never be a good defensive team, but they could certainly improve if their coach would only play smarter lineups. But Woodson would rather run out the same groups, night after night, loss after loss, and lay the blame on everyone else but him.

Steve Mills said something or was it a press release from the PR department?

Even if the Knicks bought them out, why not use them in ATL on a back to back? So they were going to trade Shump but he plays and gets hurt of course, give up Beno and MWP and they don't play. So knicksy

If MWP signs with a contender how many times are we going to say that we just let this guy go for nothing. If I'm correct he signed a 2 yr deal? I can't understand why he got no playing time and it pisses me off

@rjforjone @SNYtv @MettaWorldPeace  thats the kind of stuff they were asking him. talking about playing with kobe….holy crap, Metta said "you can ask me anything"

@Seth Nadler  The mistake was to not get a 2nd rounder for Beno as it was reported a couple of times

The brain trust strikes again..

@Seth Nadler  well its a plyer option for next year and its close to Vet min so he could have no opted into it and would get a similar one year deal somewhere else. Not a big deal on the getting nothing for him.


Next, if you don't realize that Woodson is arguably the worst coach in this teams history then i can explain it to you and why he never got time. 


I can tell you this. This team would be in first place in this division with Isiah thomas as the head coach. Thomas one of the worst executives, but he was a descent head coach. This is how bad woodson is.

@F_Piombo89 @theknicksblog  there are some pieces moving forward. THJ is someone that will become a very good supporting player when surrounded by a legit PG and big bruiser down low. I can't wait to see a penetration and kick to him over and over again.
