Mobley Takes Step Toward NBA Comeback
Former New York Knicks guard Cuttino Mobley has dropped a nearly 3-year-old case against Madison Square Garden, and according to a source close to the player, did so in an attempt to return to the NBA.
“[Cuttino] wants to play again in the NBA. He dropped the case because no team would sign him,” the source said Friday. “He believes he was misdiagnosed by the Knicks and had sued them 2½ years ago. But because [the lawsuit] wasn’t going anywhere, and it was taking too long, he decided to drop it to possibly get in with another team.”
The U.S. District Court’s Southern District of New York sent out a news release Friday saying that “the plaintiff in this case has dismissed the claims against the defendant.”
