Constantly buried on the depth chart, had lesser-talented scrubs and untested rookies played ahead of him, they even tried him out at forward and still decided to play the likes of Sestito and Weise over him.

I think he would thrive with a new coach, and if someone claims him, they could end up getting a steal. Sad that a trade couldn't be worked out, but I'm hoping for his sake he gets a shot.
