He's pretty good for a third centre, to be honest. But probably won't play much to matter and I don't see him as an option at PF unless we really want the other team to make a run.

WCJ did roll his ankle last night, he came back, but did have to leave for it.

I'm all for shutting down Okeke and WCJ for the rest of the year. They've shown enough.

Robert Franks was let go from his 10-day contract.

Wagner has actually shown he can play a little bit when he's given minutes.

Heck, he had a 30 point 15 rebound game on 13-15 shooting in a victory just 18 months ago.

Maybe it's a sign they'll draft his brother.

Not a fan of releasing Franks for his roster spot. I thought he was pretty solid.

i'd be shocked if this was a pre-emptive move to eventually shut WCJ down somehow...like after a near decade they're finally taking tanking seriously....Other teams having no shame in their game and there is a good reason for it this draft is pretty strong at the top....I mean Houston shut down Wall for the rest of the year for a hammy....Shai is essentially shut down because of a setback in his plantar but who knows if he's actually injured....don't seem like it word is people saw him at the mall in OKC moving around fine....seems like they might not win another game for the sake of trying.....we might not win another game because for whatever reason at some point in the game we fall apart and can't recover....what we lack is that consistent scorer to hold the fort whenever we hit those lulls....i think at one point in the game we went 4 minutes of game time and didn't score a bucket

He could stick...he can spread the floor and finish. Could do a lot worse for a backup versatile big (with weaknesses). He's young, skilled, and likely inexpensive. Call it a tryout...probably beats spending bigger money on similar players (Lauri?) with bigger money.

There's something about guys who have legitimately HAD big games while in the NBA vs. guys who might someday if everything comes together.

As a fellow german Willkommen, but dont ruin the tank. Always liked him, he was a lot on a german basketball podcast when he was at Michigan. Really nice guy. But the signing makes me nervous & i see him already hitting 5 threes in a win vs. the cavs :lol:

I guess Steele can't call Bamba by his first name anymore.
