    The guy has done nothing to indicate he's not a scrub. If Morey hadn't acquired him to begin with everyone would say the same.

    If Nick Johnson gets some playing time he will be the best player we let go in that trade.

    Can't figure out if I'm not getting what you're saying or not saying. Too many double negatives.

    He could be a great cheerleader for a team, but I doubt his dance moves. Greek plate smashing and firebomb throwing aren't RPD moves.

    I liked him. Never got a chance to play consistently with the injury and then the brewer and smith acquisitions.
    And yet, he had a positive attitude throughout the playoffs, was very animated and supportive from the bench, didn't sulk. Better approach than a lot of his euro counterparts.
    He should go to a place like Portland.

    LOL I always called him a scrub and this further proves it. Being cut from a tanking lottery team haha. Homers thought he was something he never will be. Morey signed him and delusionals here thought he was some capable player.

    Guy is a certified grade A scrub

    The dude was given an eminently waive-able and trade-able contract. What, a tanking team wants to pay some dude 4.8 million to prove himself?

    He is a scrub. If a tanking team gets rid of someone like him, it shows that he has no potential and very little future growth as a player. SO essentially he is worthless to a playoff team and a tanking team aka he doesn't deserve to be in the NBA

    The roster is full, Pap would be better off signing with a team who needs a 3/4.

    We need that last roster spot for Terry, as we have 2 point guards on the roster. He has ability but the guy needs to be on a team with playing time available.

    I can't ****ing believe the Nuggets just let him walk. The guy can play, just needed to get his feet wet.

    Damn the Gary Payton rule.

    That sounds exactly like what a tanking team should be doing

    If he can't get a chance on a team like the Nuggets i'd say his outlook looks pretty bleak.

    Relax there buddy. They already have Wilson chandler, danillo and Faried as forwards. If he was a smaller contract they probably would have kept him. But the way his contract was structured and the players ahead of him in the rotation it made sense to waive him.

    Again, not because he's a scrub, but because the money isnt justified with the players currently on the roster that will see most of the minutes.

    Maybe they want that roster spot for a younger guy and want players at his age.

    Cutting a player isn't always just because they don't like the guy.

    More young guys increases the chances one of them because a gun.

    I'm referring to teams who need a veteran guy.
