Figured on a big, of course, but just did NOT see that coming. At all.

It's the 15th spot, so no big deal, except that the 15th man is likely to be the 5th big man for the first half of the season until Big2O returns.

Can't say I'm content, but the optimist in me wants me to be content really, really bad, and will surely wear me down.

Whoa.

Just watched those highlights.

And that has to be the most underwhelming #1 I think I've ever seen.

If he or TLC are your 15th players, that's quality depth.  They will be much better than the 15th players on most teams. I don't mind the signing. 

Gives us another big body for training camp.

Edit:  I also know it's non-guaranteed which is even better.

Heh.  Ok, Duke fan.

Guy's gotta reinvent himself or be dinosaur'd outta the league.  The clips of him on defense are .... wait for it ... offensive🥸

I'm here all week.

Did you see the top plays.. #4 he deflected a ball on D, I thought there would be more to it..but that was it, they were off on a break though so I guess he started it lol.

Welcome Ja! :banjo:

One thing about him is he has a lot of power in his game, he’s very forceful with that body, his footwork is a lil choppy and at times gets called for steps. Still have a feeling Trae can unleash something. This is his chance to resurrect his career, might be his absolute last chance.
