Oh Ibby, we hardly knew ye.
The man I once called the second coming of Detlef Schrempf, is no longer a Sonic. Sigh.
SEATTLE - The Seattle SuperSonics have waived guard Ibrahim Kutluay and activated guard Mateen Cleaves from the injured list, General Manager Rick Sund announced today.Let's look at those stats again, folks: 12 minutes, one rebound, two turnovers. C'mon Sonics, I could put up those numbers for half the money! Call my agent!
Kutluay, 31, who was signed as a free agent on Sep. 22, played in five games after being activated from the injured list on Dec. 14. In 12 minutes of action, he grabbed one rebound and committed two turnovers. Kutluay became just the fourth Turkish player in NBA history when he made his debut on Dec. 22 vs. Denver. He missed the season's first 21 games with patellar tendinitis in his left knee.
