Kings cut Joey Dorsey largely for clownish behavior, source says. They don't consider him bad guy, but coaches feared his act rubbing off.
Artestify from Sactown Royalty expounds a bit in the comments of the StR story, saying Kings play-by-play man Grant Napear apparently mentioned on his talk show that Dorsey "said something to the effect of 'why am i practicing if i'm not gonna play' and then something that Grant couldn't even repeat...."
For a player that is already 26 and in just his second professional basketball season, off-the-court issues are probably the last thing the already undersized (6-foot-6 without shoes) power forward needs.
Unfortunately for Dorsey, this isn't the first time his mouth has got him into trouble.
In the 2008 Summer League, Joey Dorsey was ejected from a game for jawing with Odenized has us covered., even though Dorsey was a DNP! The NBA has done an excellent job of hiding the evidence (there isn't a youtube clip available), but
What's next for Dorsey?
- He could sign with the D-League, I guess, but that's a bit futile at this stage in the game. Next season is always a possibility, though.
- He could try to latch on with an NBA team looking for an inside defensive presence, though he'd be ineligible for the playoffs and the
have already added - leaving one less possible suitor.
- He could just sit at home and wait for a Summer League invite. They'll be there.
- Last, and possibly the best option, he could head overseas to make some money where he can talk as much as he wants as long as he goes to a team where nobody else understands him.
What do you think would be the best option?
