The following players, per league sources, are also considered likely buyout candidates if they are not traded by the deadline: Andrea Bargnani (New York); Brandon Bass, Tayshaun Prince and Marcus Thornton (Boston); Andrei Kirilenko (Philadelphia); Willie Green (Orlando); Randy Foye and Darrell Arthur (Denver).
That’s why Randy Foye’s return on Saturday night after missing 26 straight games with a quad injury was the perfect time for one of the oldest tricks in NBA players’ books: The Fake Substitution. Randy, you have the floor. “Gallo said ‘Randy! Coach called you.’ So I took off running,” Foye said, a grin rising on his face. “Then coach looked at me when I ran up. He was like ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘You didn’t call me?’ And then I ran back to the bench and I looked and everybody was in tears (laughing).” Classic. “They got me,” Foye said. “I’m usually the prankster on the team.”
It wasn’t long after the start of Brian Shaw’s postgame news conference following the Nuggets’ loss to Minnesota on Saturday night that Denver’s coach pointed a finger of blame at himself. “I’ll take some of the grief for trying to work Randy Foye back into the lineup and figure out when and who to play Jameer (Nelson) with as well,” Shaw said. “I probably threw everybody off a little bit in terms of the rotational minutes that they had been playing, just trying to figure that out.”
