Kelenna Azubuike gets bought out

The Knicks have waived Azubuike. This has likely been done to free up a roster spot for Jared Jeffries. I guess that makes sense since Roger Mason’s spot on the bench has been invaluable this season. Does Roger Mason have naked pictures of Walsh procreating with a donkey? How do you shoot 6% on the year and avoid getting cut? What was the thinking, let’s cut the guy who has been injured all year that has actual potential and is actually close to coming back and keep the guy who would need the entire starting five to die in a plane accident before he would get Bill Walker type minutes. And, Turiaf is now all that remains from the David Lee trade.
