Cory Higgins RumorsAll NBA Players
24 Dec 14
Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia is still on the market looking for the last addition to finalize the roster for the coming season. Lazar Hayward and Justin Holiday are the two main targets of the team with Cory Higgins being the third choice. Hayward spent last season in D-League with D-Fenders averaging 15.9ppg and 8.1rpg.
Cory Higgins is expected to become a free agent once he clears waivers. He averaged 3.7 points, 0.9 assists and 10.3 minutes in 44 games over the past two seasons. “It’s part of the business,” Rod Higgins said. “The human factor? The conversation is probably more in-depth with Cory than another player. That is just human nature because of our connection.”
Rod Higgins has waived his share of players in 12 years as an NBA executive. But his most recent cut hit especially close to home: On Saturday night, the Bobcats president of basketball operations waived his own son. “When you make a decision like that to sign your son, you know a day like this could always happen,” Rod Higgins told Yahoo! Sports. “The player realizes the same thing. The personal aspect is the personal aspect. But when you take the next step and realize it’s a business, you always know this could happen.”
“Just think of the pressure he was under every day,” Rod Higgins said. “Just step in his shoes for a second. He had to be a good pro. He had to toe the line. He is still trying to find his place in the NBA, but he’s proven that he’s an NBA player.”
