Taiwan Mobile has decided to release former NBA draft pick Marcus Fizer for his bad attitude, local media reported.
Fizer, who played for TM in only one game, told the team his injury flared up and did not practice with the team since then. He asked not to play this week.
According to TM head coach Jia Fan, Fizer also demanded extra preferential treatment.
Jia was quoted as saying that the team decided not to tolerate such behavior and release Fizer. “We don’t let a player to decide when he is in the mood to play and when not to,” he said.
At the same time, KKL is testing Manny Richardson along with Antoine Broxsie. Since each team is allowed to register one import, Richardson had to sit this week and Broxsie took the opportunity to prove himself.
Broxsie, who was tested by Taiwan Beer before joining KKL, had 18 points, 18 rebounds and seven blocks in KKL’s 56-55 win over TB on Saturday after scoring 34 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in a 98-93 overtime victory over TM on Friday.
Taiwan Beer is said to be releasing Dennis Carr and could bring back Emmanuel Jones, who played for TB last year.
