View Full Version : Fizer could be waived?

Chicago Tribune: The Bulls are still considering signing a backup point guard to a 10-day contract, a move that would necessitate waiving another player. Marcus Fizer is a strong candidate.

Jannero Pargo, a Robeson High School grad who is expected to clear waivers Tuesday after being released by Toronto, is one possibility. Another is guard Jemeil Rich, the current player of the week in the Continental Basketball Association. The 5-foot-10-inch Rich is averaging 15.5 points and 2.3 assists for the Gary Steelheads.

GM John Paxson and coach Scott Skiles spent time after practice Monday defending their philosophy that has resulted in veteran Corie Blount being waived and Eddie Robinson sitting so that the organization can look at unproven players now instead of waiting for the summer league.

"There's value in wanting guys to adhere to a belief that we have as an organization—that is to work, to do the things that we ask," Paxson said. "I guess you can make a case that maybe some more talented basketball players are sitting right now. But that's not always the be-all and end-all. Scott and I aren't going to back down from how we feel this game should be approached. That's the bottom line."

"Did those guys account for a lot of wins over the past two or three years that I'm not aware of?" added coach Skiles.

I would rather Fizer come in and bring offense off the bench while allowing Jamison to start than what we currently have.

is it the truth because he has not been given the right opportunity, or because he has no game??? potential always draws a crowd....

Players are usually waived for a reason. Thats usually the deal. Players like Scott Williams still have an ounce of two in them- most players are running on empty.

Not in Dallas. Fizer could be a nice scorer off the bench for some team in the right situation. Although he is undersized, doesn't rebound and not a good defender. Dallas doesn't need him.
