Don't be surprised to see The Spurs or some other team pick him up where scoring is not needed.

ya Andy, the reason he didn't play the last few years is because he was injuried.

If it was done to "Light A Fire" under Wright MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. I have no problem with Penny picked up for leageue minimum an later released. Now that DWade has shook off the rust I see a nice winning streak during this home stand!

Penny gave it a good try. He just did not have the confidence to shoot the ball. He passed every time he had the ball. I wish he would have come back strong, but he gave it a good try. Where is little penny

Good because Shaq can never seem to win anything with Penny on his team.
His basketball career finish from the 90's anyway.

I think it is expected. I feel very sad. I do think Penny got something left from what we saw in the 16 games he played. He can still help move the ball, and his passing skill is there, the only thing missing is his confidence to shoot the ball. But Riley didn't trust him either, to him, he might think he should follow Riley's move not to show off himself. Anyway, I know the chances are limited, but I do hope he can play with some other team. Let's pray.
