Hornets Withdraw Luther Head’s Contract Offer

The Hornets cited some “physical issues” that came up during an exam. No word as to the details of the medical condition just yet. From the Times Picayune: “The New Orleans Hornets will not offer free agent shooting guard Luther Head a contract because he had some physical issues during his physical examination that was a concern of the Hornets’ medical staff. league sources said Wednesday. Earlier this week Head and the Hornets had agreed to a two-year contract that was contingent on him passing his physical. Sources said the decision not to offer Head a contract did not have anything to do with general manager Jeff Bower and the Hornets mutually agreeing to part ways on Tuesday.”

    I think Slam was just in too much of a rush to publish the headline “Hornets get Head”. Which I still can’t believe they took so much glee in doing.

    That would be pretty foul for them to say there is something wrong with him physically because they felt like renegging on the deal.

    Kahn pressrealease: ”I love Head, Hea can go long, and i’ve heard can sometimes hit you right between the eyes”

    Is this the first time someone’s gotten Head and said, “No thanks”?

    @Dfrance: This isn’t the first time thats happened. I remember it happened to a higher profile player not so long ago. Tyson Chandler I think? Someone traded for him when he was injured (Ankle) I think knowing that he was injured then used the physical as an excuse to get out of the deal.

    Ronald, the thunder rejected him based on that

    Always a disapointment when the head you’re getting is worse than expected. Good move for the hornets. I hope they put together a nice team or trade cp3 to portland or orlando
