In Memphis, they gave me a good contract and a chance to play; I was just going through some bad times and struggling. It was a very bad team. They had a good group of guys. We just couldn't figure it out. Then I went out to New York and I didn't really get a shot. If I was going to back up David Lee for 16, 17 minutes a game, maybe less depending on how the game went, it didn't work out in that time in my career. I needed to play a lot of minutes because I had never had much of a chance before.
