When the Pacers released Darrell Armstrong it appeared to be an amicable parting of the ways. Since D.A. wasn't in the Pacers plans they tried to trade him, couldn't and ended up releasing him prior to the start of camp. According to his agent in this report, seemed like business as usual.
"Everybody was on the same page. He had permission not to show up (for training camp)," agent Glenn Schwartzman said.
Schwartzman said several teams were interested in Armstrong, although he would not identify them, and that he was confident the 6-foot-1 guard would land on another NBA team.
Armstrong said his ire is directed towards Pacers team president Larry Bird.
"Don't make a statement that you'll do, `Whatever Darrell wants to do,' and then don't do it," Armstrong said. "I just wanted to know where I stood and they weren't honest about it."
I have no intention of ripping D.A. here. He was awesome last year and we loved him because he always left it all on the court and wore his emotions on his sleeve. Nothing new here.
