Haynes saying 2 years which conflicts with Woj.

Absolutely fine as a backup big, still relatively young too. I like it.

I like Tony Bradley. Didn't even realize he was a fa. Highly productive bench C who can reb and block shots.

Taking a flyer on a relatively young center. Seems good.

I'm good with this. He showed some decent potential as a backup C, IIRC. Only 23 with 7'4 wingspan.

It would be great if we signed him for vet min.

Decent size and good length but not a great athlete and isn’t very impactful on the offensive end. Probably the 5th or 6th big off the bench on an above average team.

My guess is that we are hampered from signing non-vet min guys until the 6th or Lauri traded.

We did according to Woj. He gets a PO on the second year. Nothing to complain about here.

Very solid for the minimum. AKME know what they're doing.

He had a great game against the Bulls last year (14 pts, 100% fg, 5 boards, 3 blocks). So, in the words of Joel Embiid:

Who saw him abusing WCJ like a rag doll off the bench this past season? That’s when I’m convinced to let WCJ go for a bag of chips

A+++ sign for production and value.

Solid get for the min, another big body to have. Think you probably need two more. Always a good idea to buy low on young talent.

I feel like he always crushed it when given a chance when Gobert or Embiid played hurt on the jazz and sixers in his respective time there.

He's way better than Gafford for example. His plus minus I feel like is always good when given minutes - he's impactful when he's on the court.

I am sort of intrigued by Justin Patton at Center. I know he hasn't shown much due to his injury and recovery, but he seems to move well and I'd like him as an end of bench guy.

Yeah that was that stretch where every big man in the league was having career nights against Wendell. My, how far we've come since those days. Lol

If you can't beat them, sign them.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to take a waiver on him for the min. If he works out, great get. If not, he gets waived. Low risk medium reward if he can be productive. Also I still feel some type of way that we had to trade him along with Jimmy in that deal. Trash GarPax deal.
