Couple of truly minor pieces of news; minor, that is, unless you happen to be related to Desmon Farmer or Andreas Glyniadakis.
Both guys were waived by Seattle on Thursday, ensuring their contracts would not be guaranteed for the remainder of the season. I for one am thankful they released Glyniadakis, simply because his skills aren't good enough to justify a last name that difficult to spell. Elsewhere, Gary Washburn reports in the PI that Penny Hardaway may make his debut for the Sonics tonight against the Knicks (Motto: "You think your team sucks? Hah! We know from suck!")
Bob Hill continues to moan for a center like an alcoholic at closing time, but none seems to be forthcoming, unless you consider the NBDL names being tossed around, which would be near-beer in my convulted metaphor.
However, there is a silver lining to the dark clouds hovering over the Pacific Northwest. That's right, the Knicks are in town, and a win tonight means the Sonics would emerge from the gloomy cellar of the NW Division into the bright lights of fourth place. I know, I know, heady stuff, but January in this part of the world requires a special amount of optimism.
UPDATE: The Sonics signed Andre "NBDL" Brown today. Hello playoffs!
