Right. And I can't imagine many other teams willing to take him on, particularly considering they'd be on the hook for $4MM, rather than the $2MM we're paying him.

And while Avery certainly has detractors in our fan base, the guy is still a fan favorite. How many other players regularly have their names chanted at the Garden? I'm not saying it's a reflection of his true value as a player or anything, but it's tough for a front office to demote a player that's beloved by so many fans. And one, that for all his mediocrity this season, is still relatively productive.
