Not sure he can improve the team any as their doesn't seem to be any mins for more bigs. We have beans, Kwame, Udoh who get mins at center and then Mark has gone small several times in the past couple games. I guess he is like insurance in case some gets hurt. But then what aboy Tyler? D league...

No we just needed 15 players and now we got them. Something must go terribly wrong to see that player on the floor.

Minimum is 13. We got him for a reason, otherwise they are just wasting money

I think he is on the team for emergency purposes, in-case anything happens one of the bigs. Not a bad idea.

Yup, we can dress 13 with 15 in our roster. May as well dress a big with exp instead of a 20 year old without.

Via John Hollinger via ESPN insider

The best-kept secret in the NBA right now is Fesenko's monstrous defensive stats. It's not that one or two metrics point out his defensive value; it's that all of them do, without any pointing to the contrary. Last season the Jazz were an eye-popping 11.91 points per 100 possessions better on defense with Fesenko on the floor, and this is not a new trend. The season before it was 8.67; in limited minutes his first two seasons he also had a strong differential. Synergy Stats, meanwhile, rated Fesenko as the second-best defender in the entire league among players who faced at least 150 opponent plays; the season before he was first. And according to 82games.com, opposing centers had a PER of just 10.4 against him; the season before it was 12.9. Despite his size, Fesenko doesn't block a ton of shots or dominate the boards. He just uglies up the game for opponents with his sheer hugeness, especially since he moves his feet fairly well for his size. And he can still get better -- he wasn't always fully engaged in Utah and needs to step up his commitment. Now for the bad news. Fesenko has been fairly disastrous offensively. He tends to bring balls back into shot-blockers when finishing at the rim, he's a 39.8 percent career foul shooter, he's clumsy, and he has no shooting range or ball skills. Additionally, his towering foul rate limits his impact -- Fesenko commits one every 4.94 minutes for his career, making it virtually impossible for him to play extended minutes. Nonetheless, he can be a very effective, low-cost backup center, and if he can make a few more plays offensively he'll have real value."

I read somewhere they would have re-signed Jeremy Lin if he had made it through waivers. I wonder if they are holding a spot for him. With Ish Smith and Jenkins, seems like they are okay there however.

Marcus Thompson posted that this might be why the signing fell through, though this is back from September...

Ouch, well maybe Jeremy Tyler might move up the chart, once upon a time he was the #1 ranked high school player.

Once upon a time is right... I actually watched him play in person in San Diego where I reside. He appear to have lots of talent but skill set and iq was always in question.

That's interesting, I wonder how he pans out, still young he would be a college freshman right now.
