If he really wants out he could officially ask to be traded, which he hasn't.
He was told they would accept his input and then made the hire without accepting his input.
In effect, he was lied to (I suspect when he signed his contract extension).
Can't really blame the guy for not trusting management at this point. He's done what he could as a player to put himself in position to succeed but there's a massive wall put in front of him by GMs making horrible trades and inept coaching. At the end of the day, I just think he wants to win and doesn't feel like that will ever be a realistic possibility in HOU so long as these guys are doing their best to run the team into the ground.
Some zig when others zag. I zug.
