Great, another big man to warm the bench for Baron.... :roll:

I wish they would call up a guy they would be willing to play.

sorry to joel out there, i didnt realize he was in the nbdl.

those are decent #s considering only 22 mins a game. especially the 6 rebs, because thats what i noticed most on his draft sheet was lack of rebounding for his size. if he can rebound and shoot great. but im sure he's slow as molasses.

i guess nellie is desperate for any big man production.
