He's good for the Mavs. I like him.

He doesn't do much of the offensive side, but he plays much better defense that Powell. It is hard to believe that he was the 6th pick of the draft. Sacramento is terrible at drafting.

He actually rebounds, and that’s the biggest thing that was missing with Powell. Team defense has been fantastic so far and he’s a huge reason why

And its sad to say, but Dwight Powell should have never been starting or playing significant minutes. He still needs to be doing rehab work until he can be productive.

So WCS was good move for adding a productive player and reducing the minutes of a non-productive one.

He looks motivated and moving quickly. He's essentially Brandon Wright with defense.

That said, should be demoted to the bench with KP back and playing 18mpg as a back up.

Nah start them together and bring Maxi off the bench or start him at the 3 for an ultra long and defensive lineup.

And most people here said he should have been the starter instead of Powell since the first game. What would be Dallas' record? 8-2?

I still wish we had him in the postseason. He's been well worth his contract.

Powell starting games is Cuban's ego justifying that contract and to tell himself Ainge didn't screw him in that Rondo deal. I'm glad to see that is slowly changing.

Lots of reasons for him to play and the most important to me is his playing center keeps KP from doing it and possibly getting an injury that would f@#k up the whole season and preseason. We need KP playing PF not center.
