Should fit in well defensivley, and should give our guards someone to play with in the PnR. His lack of shooting is gonna limit his time on the floor though. Not a bad pickup if true

9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

It helps keep OG healthy, mainly.

Good pickup, may hurt the tank a little bit if this helps redistribute OG/Pascal's time away from the 5 more often (especially defensively).

Both of those guys look absolutely gassed on offense whenever having to cover center on defense.

Less PT for Baynes can only hurt the tank, but this at least this shows Masai had something up his sleeve and isn’t just riding this season out
