    Tough to make an impression in limited opps. Oh well, he never really did anything on the court that excited me.

    If he was good player, he would have stayed around. He needs to find his shot again. I don't know, maybe Pistons are just not his team.

    I liked his recent comments about playing "Piston basketball" when he was talking about his flagrant foul on Psycho-T last year.
    I liked his Eddie Hascal attitude and found it to be genuine.
    I like the fact that he played Center at Missouri because that's what his team needed him to do.

    I hope that someone that he knows reads this thread and tells him about it.
    I really want this kid to know that he was appreciated in Detroit and we're rooting for him!
    This was probably a tough move for Joe.
    Walter and del like this.

    Thanks Kim for the Johnny Cash tune, and thanks for getting Andre to practice on time.

    I hope he gets picked up by someone soon, seems like a good kid.

    Joe took care of his player like usual. Two guys took my eyes by their poise and mature during draft night 2012, Harrison Barns and Ken English, I've followed their games ever since and wouldn't stop. Wish him every good wishes and be picked up soon.

    I have to assume that Joe is working the phones in hopes of finding another team for Ken to sign with.
    I think a young team like Philly or Charlotte could REALLY get a lot out of having Kenny on their roster.
