After playing 19 minutes in the Sonics™ 109-99 loss to the New Jersey Nets, 10 below his average last season, Radmanovic reiterated his discontent with his situation.
I don™t think we had an air (to clear), Radmanovic said. œI just said I wasn™t satisfied with the minutes I was getting and that was it. It is still the same thing. But I can™t repeat it over and over. That would be stupid. All I can do is try to use the minutes I am getting and try to help this team win.
When he was asked why Weiss did not use him during a third quarter when the Sonics were held to four points in the first six minutes, Radmanovic said, œI don™t know. Like I told you, I am just working here.
It is not a secret that Radmanovic has poor body language when he is on the court this season.
He was one of the most visible players who quit in the Sonics™ 41-point blowout loss to Washington.
Allen said he spoke to Radmanovic about that issue as well.
œI don™t think he is not getting the shots, Allen said. œI just think he doesn™t know where the shots are coming. Sometimes he is not ready when he is out on the floor. When he is out on the floor you can see him standing straight and he is not ready to take that shot. And that™s what I was telling him: When you are out on that floor, you are a threat at all times.
