Cuttino Mobley Likely to Retire

Cuttino Mobley’s future will be decided sometime this week, although most signs are pointing to the veteran guard being forced to retire due to a potentially fatal heart condition.

"It’s his health," Knicks president Donnie Walsh said. "It’s his call."

Mobley was acquired from the Clippers in the Zach Randolph trade but has not played or practiced with the Knicks. Instead, he’s been meeting with heart specialists and the results of those tests will be revealed this week. Mobley has an enlarged heart, a condition he has played with throughout his career. He signed a waiver with the Rockets and Clippers that allowed him to play.
