Looking at highlights...he's not a high flyer. Doesn't look like he'll be a lob threat.

I’m sure he would be an improvement over Baynes, I hope they give him minutes to prove himself, unlike the guys before him like D.Hall who got none and Ellison who got very limited minutes.

baynes literally does nothing, even his wide ass screens dont do anything because hes not a threat anywhere on the floor.

This video, combined with the article makes me excited to see Freddie play. Like pascal, he was late to the party but outworked everyone to get where he is. Really like that his motor and his lateral quicks are there. If the raps can get demar a midrange game and pascal an improved 3 and solid free throw percentage, then I feel comfortable that he could develop a mid range jumper with that work ethic. I didn’t really know anything about him and was more hoping we’d sign boogie or Dedmon or someone like that, but I’m also stoked to know that the tank appears to be on.

I believe in Masai.

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

Lookin like a more coordinated Bismack Biyombo. Uses his left hand a ton to finish around the basket and block shots.

If he can figure out our defense he should be more useful than Baynes in every regard, except leaning forward like a small child on his jumper, Baynes def has him beat on that.

After watching this video he reminds me of Chris Bosh..... A less athletic, without the shot or handle or driving game of Bosh. So he's got the look basically and nothing else. Haha
Prediction, April 2021. Raps will get the #9 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and select Moses Moody.

This guy looks like he has a nice combo of smarts, physical tools and drive. I see a big man version of OG. I'd be nice if he was a better leaper, but the standing reach helps. He got a 36.5 vertical it looks like, but I don't really see it in the highlights.

Exactly what I was thinking. Probably what Masai and Bobby are hoping for.

Can guard 1-5 and is a rebound monster.

Exactly what I think the raps need to play beside Boucher.
