He’s a complete bust at this point.

I thought of you when I saw this. I know we gave you a hard time for loving him but seriously what’s wrong. The tape did translate to more than this.

Could we use him as our 15th man?
GO HAWKS!!! :thumbsup:

I accept any and all criticism for touting this kid as a potential Pascal Siakam clone. The dude has not translated to American Basketball in any form or fashion.

He'll likely sign a two-way contract with some team and go work in the G-League this season. I would definitely be open to sending him to College Park. But with the glut of young forwards we currently have, he's unlikely to get much opportunity with the big league squad unless we make a trade.

I cannot believe he's been tossed around so much.
Does he have a bad attitude, poor work ethic, or just a bust?

Apparently he had a difficult time adjusting to US....as a 19 year old in a foreign country, foreign land, alone....tough.

This is an interesting development. Is the NBA finally ready to return to two big man starting lineups?

Staying healthy seems to be the only thing holding both of them back. Divisional rivalry or not I would like to sew them play a full season.

Smart, low-risk move for LAL. I’m surprised the Clippers didn’t sign him as they wait for Kawhi to return.

She deserves everything she wins!



The county of Los Angeles is trying to force the widow of Kobe Bryant and other surviving family members of a fatal helicopter crash last year to submit to psychiatric examinations that could help the county prove a critical point in their legal dispute: Did Vanessa Bryant and the others suffer emotional distress because photos of their dead relatives were shared by county fire and sheriff’s department employees after the crash? Or did their emotional distress stem only from the tragic crash itself?

 The county contends it’s the latter and is seeking a court order to compel these medical examinations as part its effort to defend itself from a lawsuit filed by Bryant last year after the NBA legend and their daughter died in that crash with seven others. Vanessa Bryant is suing the county for invasion of privacy and negligence, claiming county employees improperly shared photos of human remains from the crash site. In a court filing Friday, the county noted that Bryant and other surviving family plaintiffs are suing the county for “tens of millions of dollars based solely on their claimed ‘severe emotional distress.’ ” The county’s position is that their distress was not caused by county employees or any accident site photos it says “were never publicly disseminated.”

If Wendell can stay relatively healthy, that contract is a heckuva value. He'll be making half of what John Collins makes but will likely provide the same level of production as JC did last season. (With much better defense.)

I do wonder what it means for Mo Bamba. I'd be okay grabbing him as a backup Center to handle Embiid in the postseason.

Smart move by Grizz:
Included in Jackson’s deal are protections for the Grizzlies in case Jackson gets hurt again, allowing them to save some or all of the money they’d owe him — sources told The Athletic. Jackson missed most of last season after tearing his meniscus..........
