Play him over Baynes.

Let’s not actually.


I say throw him in the pack of wolves and see if this guy survives. If he does, great. That's a future trade asset for us.

So a stronger, productive Bruno?

I was thinking more like Bismack without the oven mitts for hands

Either way, a future all star. I'll take it.

If he can be Robert Williams lite, it would be huge.

I like this signing. I came across his name a few weeks back looking for potential bigs. Solid roleplayer potential.

Another big I hoped they'd look at is Oleg Yurtseven who played for the Thunder Gleague team.

Will he actually get playing time?

I hope not. The descriptions of him suggest that he will try very hard, which hurts the tank. I hope he tries hard riding the pine and vigorously waves towels.

His foot speed looks questionable from the highlights. Will Nurse even play him?

A range-less Damian Jones-type double-double per 36 minute big.

That already makes him emphatically better than any C we've had for most of the season.

Now I see why we cleared all those roster spots, so we can sign big names in the buyout market like Freddie Gillespie :lol:. Seriously though he may be a nice pickup and I'd play him over Baynes in the rotation to see how he does.

There are going to be some pissed off people in here when Nurse refuses to play him any meaningful minutes

Good enough to do things in practice.
He is no where near Baynes, while we are not starting Baynes, so there is not much playing time for him to be behind a bench C.
