Mike James Not Happy

Mike James chose to sign with Minnesota over Houston and Dallas and isn’t happy with his current role.

Not at all,” James said after his team’s 109-107 victory. “But they were preparing him, and they were seasoning him, Randy (Foye, the rookie who took James’ place Sunday). This is what they want for him. They’re getting what they want. It’s tough at times because I just feel like, if I’m not a fit here, then like they always say, if it ain’t one place, it always can be another.”

“Mike’s a vet,” Kevin Garnett said. “He knows how the league works. He knows he has to be professional and stay ready. Just because he’s not a starter doesn’t necessarily mean we don’t need him. It’s not about one person around here, it’s about what’s best for this team. We’ve all got full faith that he’ll do that. He was ready (against Boston). Played good minutes, kept things afloat. Cheering on Randy, so that was a good thing.”
