Nice to see them get the deal done before the start of training camp so he doesn't end up too far behind.
jonjames is a signature bet welcher.

Between him and Reed there should be a path for rotation minutes at the 4. Reed should have the advantage, but looking forward to seeing how Bassey's game translates. Kind of reminds me of a homeless man's David West.

You see Bassey playing PF?

I kind of view him strictly as a C. Especially on defense. He's a textbook rim protector.

I'm sure he'll play some C when Embiid sits, but I definitely see him as more of a 4 in the NBA. Adept at popping and running P&R sets with some ability to space.

I think lineups where Bassey is the 2nd biggest player (!) are going to have major issues defensively.

Offensively, he seems most comfortable scoring in all the typical C ways.

Looks like it was just 75k gtd. Nice spin on it though.

I know he got off to a rough start with the team, but I hope he can get on the court, would be nice to have some young jumping legs under the hoop to come in when Drummond looks like he can't get any lift, and try to keep him fresher for the end of the game.

Since we are running a ton of pick and rolls, doesn't seem like it would be too hard for him to get in and not be in the way.

The shotblocking translates, for sure. On another team, that might earn him some minutes, but his path to playing time here is hard to see.

The kid has to learn to block out, but keeping Tristan Thompson off the boards as a rookie is tough. On a positive note, he’s not terrified dribbling the ball: he actually brought it up court once or twice last night.

Bassey looks like he has a very solid career as a backup big ahead of him. Rim protects, rebounds, dives hard on the PNR, good hands and athleticism and pretty composed and high basketball IQ for a rook that didn't play SL and not fully in training camp. Right now he solidly deserves a spot over BBall Paul who is more of an energy, jumpstart player till he can harness his own very unique skillset.

Rebounding percentages, block percentages, and free throw percentages are all looking great. Which are the only things I care about for a big.

He needs more minutes. He should have been playing 20+ mpg this whole time while Embiid was out. Missed opportunity for Doc to get some development in.

Agreed. The experiment with the Minivan at the 5 hasn't worked at all. Although I will say that Reed is better suited to defending stretch bigs like Jokic than Bassey.
