A little extra from the Jason Hart saga…
A lot of fans wonder how the bench-ridden Kings point guard (or his agent) can complain when he wouldn’t have been with the Kings if he didn’t exercise his player option for this season (those not in the know, read today’s Kings notes). To that, Hart stated the obvious.
“You can’t leave that type of money on the table,” Hart said. “That’s ignorant to leave that money on the table.”
Hart also said he had legitimate hopes for an increased role this season because of the coaching change. He compared his situation to that of Corliss Williamson, who played little under former coach Rick Adelman but has been utilized under coach Eric Musselman.
“I had decided that it was a new coach, a new opportunity,” Hart said. “That’s what I thought, and I thought wrong.”
