I'm surprised the Pistons wouldn't want to hold on to Arvis. He actually played pretty well for them. I wouldn't want him back here though. He'd come here and fracture the knee cap again.

Most Pistons fans I know couldn't stand Arvis. He might've shown up for a game here and there, but he was, from all reports, terrible on the defensive end and a bad fit with Afflalo and Maxiell.
Too high to get over; too low to get under. We're stuck in the middle, and the pain is thunder.

Arvis had a few big games (one notably against us) but I think there's a reason why he barely played in the playoffs.

I hope Juan can stick in the league though, hopefully the Hornets pick him up.

Party John an allstar, who would have thought. Swiped from Ivan's blog from a poster.

Peter John Ramos, the uncoordinated 7'3" former Wizards center drafted 32nd in the 2004 draft, played last year in the premier Spanish league. He was selected to the All-star team and won MVP of the All-star game. On the season, he averaged 17.5 pts and 9.8 boards.
He starting playing basketball at age 13 and he is currently 23 years old.

Looks like Miami might be following Detroit's blueprint by snapping up former Wizards...
http://www.miamiherald.com/news/breaking_news/story/597712.html
The Heat has expressed interest in several free agents: center Kwame Brown and guards Jannero Pargo and Roger Mason.

Agent Mark Bartelstein said Tuesday afternoon he has had discussions about his three clients with the Heat, but ''nothing is happening imminently'' regarding contract offers. However, he said Mason visited the Heat last week.

Every time I think of Arvis now I flash back to this video gilbert0arenas posted during the playoffs...

:lol:

and looking for that I saw this layup attempt, which makes the 'Arvis shot look golden...

OMG! How the heck does Kwame get close to the MLE from a contender?!?!?! I expected him to stick around the league, sure. But on a team desperate for a big that would offer him the LLE - not getting $4M per from a team with a shot at a title.

Detroit has done pretty well with the DC castoffs, though the quality declines. They're trying to recoup that championship magic.

That is a little weird. You're giving Kwame more than we gave Blatche? Why?

I believe they might of overpaid a little, but taking into consideration what people like Nene and so forth are paid it isn't that bad. I believe Kwame will put up decent numbers if he is healthy.
