Cuttino Mobley dropped his pending lawsuit against the Knicks because he believes it's keeping teams from signing him, a source told ESPN New York's Jared Zwerling.
Mobley retired in 2008 due to a heart condition. He sued the Knicks because he believed they traded for him at the time knowing he wouldn't be able to play due to the condition and hoping to collect insurance money on the rest of his contract. While the lawsuit may not have helped his NBA chances, his age (37) and the heart condition are more logical reasons for why he hasn't been able to get back in the league.

Free agent Cuttino Mobley recently participated in the ASM Sports Pro Day in Las Vegas.

Mobley was forced into retirement in 2008 because of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It's the same ailment that led to the deaths of Reggie Lewis and Hank Gathers. Mobley now says he is fully cleared and wants back in the NBA. But at age 37, it's highly unlikely to happen.

Cuttino Mobley is reportedly hoping to make a return to the NBA.

We can't imagine a team is willing to roll the dice on a 37-year-old who hasn't been in the league in five years. Mobley will work out for teams on May 31, and other notable participants include Josh Howard, Christian Eyenga and Rasual Butler.

Cuttino Mobley has filed an amended complaint against Madison Square Garden, regarding the way he was treated after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

Mobley's last complaint was thrown out and this may not gain any traction, but he's clearly embittered toward MSG and the Knicks. He suggested last year that he would attempt a pro-basketball comeback, but that never manifested, and he's otherwise been busy with business ventures (including a foray into marijuana dispensaries).

Cuttino Mobley is suing the New York Knicks, claiming that the team forced him to retire in 2008 due to his heart condition.

Mobley was dealt from the Clippers to the Knicks that season. He had previously admitted that resuming his career was a "pipe dream" due to the condition, but his claim is that New York tried to save money by getting him to retire.

Cuttino Mobley, who is hoping to return to the NBA despite a chronic heart ailment, has helped to finance a $1.6 million loan for medical marijuana dispensaries in Maine.

Mobley intended to open dispensaries in Rhode Island, but legal hurdles have (at least temporarily) scuttled those plans. On Wednesday he co-founded the "Wellness and Pain Management Connection LLC," which on Thursday provided financing for Maine-based dispensaries, at 8.5% interest plus consultation fees. He said he is interested in helping people, and by NBA standards this sounds like a decent business move, but it may not help his longshot bid to make an NBA roster.

Cuttino Mobley hopes to return to the NBA despite the chronic heart condition that forced him into retirement in 2008.

Mobley admits that resuming his 11-year NBA career is a "pipe dream," but he still loves the game and feels he can contribute. He remains bitter toward the Knicks for the way they handled the situation, but he still has some opportunities -- he turned down a chance to play in Poland last year, and nearly signed with a team in the D-League.

Cuttino Mobley says his heart condition shouldn't prevent him from playing basketball -- the 35-year old has drawn interest from teams in China and Poland but he wants to return with an NBA team.

"I just want to come in and kind of help out for 10, 15 minutes [per game]," Mobley said. "And if they wanted to give me a test with three to four different doctors and have me go through some type of process, I’m all for it." It's hard to imagine him signing with an NBA team, but at least he's healthy.

Cuttino Mobley has been among several notable names working out for the Celtics in recent days.

Mobley's career was believed to be over due to a heart condition, but he's now hoping to make a return to the NBA. Other players who have worked out for the Celtics recently include Rashad McCants, Trenton Hassell and Adam Morrison, though none of the four would be likely to have significant fantasy value even if they earned a roster spot in Boston.

Cuttino Mobley, who was waived by the Knicks in April and was set to retire due to a heart condition, says he's healthy and wants to return to the NBA.

He never filed retirement papers with the league and is now an unrestricted free agent, free to sign with any team. He could land with a team wanting some cheap, veteran leadership, but it would also have to be a team willing deal with the risk involved with using Mobley.

The Knicks officially waived Cuttino Mobley on Monday.

He averaged 16.0 points per game in 10-plus seasons in the NBA, and had his career cut short by a heart condition known as hypertropic cardiomyopathy. The Knicks saved a whopping $9 million on their luxury tax bill by waving him.

The NBA has denied the Knicks a $4.5 million disabled player's exception for retired guard Cuttino Mobley.

The ruling is a blow for the Knicks, who were hoping to use the exception in a trade. The Knicks don't plan to waive Mobley in the hopes that his contract can be included in a trade by the February 19th deadline.

Cuttino Mobley announced his retirement on Thursday due to the heart condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Tests showed that Mobley's condition is worse than originally thought, leaving him with no avenue to continue his playing career. The 33-year-old averaged 16.0 points per game during his 10-plus seasons in the NBA.

ESPN is reporting that a heart ailment will force Cuttino Mobley to retire and that an announcement will be made on Thursday.

Mobley reportedly was being tested for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is the same condition that took the lives of Reggie Lewis and Hank Gathers. This is tough news for the Knicks, but gives all of their guards more fantasy value going forward. Even though this move isn't yet official, you should drop Mobley and get a replacement in place immediately.

A final decision on Cuttino Mobley's health and career will come this week, according to the Knicks' president Donnie Walsh.

Team officials privately believe that Mobley's career is over, but the decision will ultimately be up to him according to Walsh. Steve Francis told the New York Post that Mobley was leaning towards retirement as well, but if you're still hanging on it looks like you'll get the official news this week.
