The deal makes sense in that JJ was apparently insubordinate. Regardless of what you can and can't do on the court, if you refuse to listen or respect your coach you're gone.

Secondly, there were more than a few moments where he disappeared last year. I'm giving Fields some benefit of the doubt regarding the injury he suffered. However, they're both terrible and essentially negate each other.
