A bit early to tell. He needs more playing time. He's doing great but I'm not sure he's an ideal modern center.

Yeah I guess, at best. Not sure he played enough for us to have any idea of his ceiling (both ofensively and defensively)

Even if he isn’t our long term answer at center, he’s got value that we can use in a variety of ways.

The GB gets mad if your team is too good.

The GB gets mad if you have a player they don't like.

If we have Poku and Bazely types playing 3/4, I'm not sure you really need a modern center. A rim-running garbage man that can get you 20 rebounds a game at times with put backs and good rim protection works in that situation, I think. Especially if you aren't paying out the nose for him.

I still haven't seen enough of Moses to know if I like him, but he's for sure been encouraging. Finding these kind of value gems are the antidote to a terrible tank. Build value from nothing and if you can bundle these types together with picks, you can get yourself a star. Find and develop Robert Covingtsons.
