Cuttino Mobley Set to Announce Retirement

Guard Cuttino Mobley is expected to retire because of a heart condition, sources told 1050 ESPN Radio in New York. The Knicks have called a news conference for 1 p.m. ET Thursday afternoon with Mobley.

Mobley made the decision after going through a number of medical tests since he was dealt from the Clippers to the Knicks in the Zach Randolph trade on Nov. 21. Mobley retires as a Knick, even though he never played a game for them.

Mobley, 33, has played 11 years in which he averaged 16 points and 2.7 assists per game. He played with four teams before being dealt to New York.
