NBA - Scoop Du Jour

Gordan Giricek

Gordan Giricek was neither surprised nor nostalgic when he was dealt from the Utah Jazz to the Philadelphia 76ers.

This season, Giricek had seen limited playing time and had an ongoing feud with veteran coach Jerry Sloan. Giricek said he wasn't surprised by the trade because he had asked for the move.

"I loved the city, but somehow I couldn't find a right spot with the team," he said. "The only thing I asked always is to be respected as a man. Not as a basketball player, just as a man. And I didn't feel that was so."
