I don't think it really matters, it was time for him to go. He knew it and they knew it. The team wasn't going anywhere, his career is a lot closer to the end than it is to the beginning, it was just time. Much like it is for Kevin Garnett in Minnesota or Ray Allen in Seattle, great players in situations where they're really just spinning their wheels.
It's all he said, she said at this point. What really matters is that he's getting a chance at a fresh start and the 76ers are getting a chance to tear it down and start over.
