<div class="quote_poster">Quote:</div><div class="quote_post">As Chucky Atkins made his way from the locker room to the bus on a snowy night in Indianapolis on Thursday after failing to appear in the Washington Wizards' 24-point rout by the Indiana Pacers, he began to voice his frustrations. "All I know is that there's a week until the 15th, and that possible moves will be made. I just hope I'm one of them," said Atkins, acquired along with Caron Butler in the Kwame Brown trade last summer. Atkins offered more of the same Sunday night after scoring a season-high 26 points in the Wizards' overtime loss to the Heat -- the team's 10th loss in 13 games. Asked whether he felt the same way, Atkins reiterated his position and added, "Go ahead and write it." The Wizards, who could have traded Atkins at any time 90 days after he was acquired, did not comment on Atkins' comments yesterday, but president of basketball operations Ernie Grunfeld said he would discuss the matter with the player in private. "When things don't go exactly the way you expect them to go, you always feel some degree of frustration," Grunfeld said. "But you have to remain professional, and Chucky has." Atkins' frustrations with the Wizards, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, are mostly about his playing time. The source said Atkins, who will collect $4.5 million in the final year of his contract, plans to talk with Grunfeld about the way he feels he is being used. According to the source, Atkins has said he is frustrated by not knowing his role. The source said the seven-year veteran doesn't believe he is getting the courtesy he deserves and will ask the team to "find him a more suitable situation." Grunfeld would not comment whether he already has met with Atkins but said he "has an open-door policy" with his players. "If we need to talk we will, and whatever that conversation entails will be kept in house," Grunfeld said. "Chucky is a competitor and will do the best job he can do." Last season Atkins started all 82 games with the Los Angeles Lakers and averaged a career-high 13.6 points and 4.4 assists while averaging slightly more than 35 minutes. However, this season he has struggled coming off the bench and has played only sporadically behind Gilbert Arenas, Antonio Daniels and Jarvis Hayes. He is averaging a career-low 5.6 points and less than 17 minutes a game. Atkins' agent, Andy Miller, said he has talked with Grunfeld recently concerning Atkins' future. </div> Source Note to Chucky: You are not the superstar you think you are. The grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it buddy?
