Knick fan here, not a bait or troll thread at all though!

Curious, why was he let go?

Looking at his numbers it seems he was offensively stunted during his years in CHI?

In his 4 years in UTAH he averaged 12ppg on 54% shooting, but only about half that in CHI. Now in NY so far he's shown a nice ability to score very efficiently, although his hot 3 point shooting thus far is probably a fluke. But he's a very good all around player when you watch him everyday, and it seems like he fit the CHI personal perfectly, especially on defense. Arguably a better player than RIP at this stage.

So I'm really confused/interested as to why CHI let him go?
