6'9 245 with a 7'6 wingspan Averages 10 rebounds a game. At least it's a big.

Play him over Baynes.

Averaged 10 rebounds and 2 blocks in the Gleague this season. Interesting signing I guess. Hope he actually gets a chance unlike Hall

Good signing. Getting a guy who addresses an obvious need while still staying young with potential. Wasn't too crazy about Siakam and OG battling bigs the rest of the way. Too much risk for injury.

Hall signing was so bizarre. His 10 days passed during all-star week. :lol:

At least a lob target for Flynn, this will be interesting to see how our team works with a C, and exciting to see how that works with Boucher.

raptors signed hall to support the 905. he played 3-4 games for them there, maybe there were injuries with the 905 and they needed someone.

Nicee... another player that we won't play because Siakam and OG need to get their 40MPG.

this is what I wanted, sign some young hungry bigs and give them a chance, if someone hits then great if not it's okay. It just helps the tank and saves wear and tear on our core forwards

He looks slow footed and doesn't really have explosiveness.

But it's weird watching a big man rebounding and blocking shots.

So a stronger, productive Bruno?

We could certainly use a big, so I'm fine with this trial period. Hopefully he gets a chance to get some burn. Hope he goes 110% when he gets in there and hustles his butt off.

Let’s not actually.
Team is Mediocre, it’s about to start running on a treadmill unless changes are made.

I don't think this guy is going to win us any games. I'd rather get a good look at some young bigs who could be in our rotation.

Well people were saying Gleague bigs are better than Baynes. Curious now if this is true lol

Nice pick up. Still a bit raw. Interesting that he finishes around the basket more with his left (dunks and hooks) but shoots with his right. And blocks with both hands (but mostly right). Reminds me a lot like Tristan Thompson. Somewhat mechanical with his offense and reckless abandon on defense.
