The Kandi man ran his mouth after the Utah game. They talked about it on the Mavs telecast. Here's the article.

His own team fined him...that's sad. This does not bode well for his return to the team as a FA. Not that it was going to happen anyway.

He's a restricted FA and the Clippers are under the cap. They can probably re-sign him if they want to pay the money. He didn't look like he was going all out against the Mavs unless he had the ball in his hands and then he shot it. He has talent but looks sort of robotic at times and shuffled his feet several times for traveling violations. At 27, he's still young, but immature, from what I can tell.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but didn't he just get into some kind of legal trouble with the police? I am thinking that the Clips are ready to show him the door. That has nothing to do with his skills. It's just that the owner whose name is elduing me right now just doesn't like that on his team. I think it embarrassed the organization. I believe the Clips will let him go elsewhere. They aren't known for paying anyone what they are worth.
