After announcing their first ever Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster
kNg possibly not playing in 100 thieves anymore https://t.co/nJFHZW8PeC— /r/GlobalOffensive (@redditCSGO) January 25, 2018
There is no specific reasoning for why he has been dropped, but incidents such as his dramatic encounter on Twitter with Duncan "Thorin" Shields certainly doesn't help his case.
The assumption seems to be that Joao "felps" Vasconcellos would take his spot on the team should the rumor about kNgV- being dropped are true. Felps is currently filling in at the ELEAGUE Major for SK Gaming as they couldn't use Ricardo "boltz" Prass as he played in qualifiers for another roster.
The drop would come before kNgV- even had his debut for the new organization. Should they remove kNgV-, the squad would be down to Henrique "HEN1" Teles, Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles, Lincoln "fnx" Lau and Bruno "bit" Fukuda, with the possible addition of felps.

UPDATE: After the news was leaked on Thursday, 100 Thieves have made the move public. It seems the incidicent with Thorin and his issues in the past have caught up to kNg. The orginization is still working with the other players to figure out the future.
