I watched some of him in college.

I don't think he'll help us.  He's a weakside help defender, and that's really all he gives you.  Not an offensive threat, not a good man defender.  He's not strong enough to deal with centers without help, and even many PF's will overpower him in the post. 

...
I never watched him in college.  I did just watch one of his D-League games on the net this morning vs Austin just to see what we're getting, and your description seems spot on.  Granted, that's just one game, but just from that one, I saw what you described.

danny is going for stiemsma 2.0

Why can't Danny just get back Stiemsma 1.0. The guy is not getting alot of time off the wolves bench. I would give them wilcox and a 2nd round pick. Should of never let him go in the first place. Right now i rather have him before Wilcox, lee, barbosa and Jeff Green

I been watching some more clips of him and i can see why he is considered the best shot blocker outside the nba. Even if he gets muscles and pushed back, his arms are so long he could still block you. Even if he gets pumped faked, he can still block you. Arms are beyond long haha

Imagine if Varnado and Melo pans out , and they are both on the court?? Instantaneously 50-60 percent of teams in the nba we face now have to turn into jump shooting teams. =]

Why? From the looks of it, he's not playing well. Low shooting %, poor rebounding (pretty much the same rate as Wilcox).

Wilcox is the superior player between the 2.

I can't comment on Stiems' current defensive situation, but he wasn't good in the pick-and-roll defense, which his a big problem this year, so I don't see him as being a good answer to our woes, let alone trade them Wilcox and a 2nd rounder for him.

That said, Wilcox is currently injured, and we'll that's a big concern, but I really like him, particularly when considering he's playing for us exclusively out of position. Doc started experimenting with a "big" line-up too late. It should have been Wilcox getting the starting call some time back. He's barely played alongside KG this year.

I read this thread quickly so apologies if I missed it but does anyone know the details of the contract? Is if a 10-day or a partially guaranteed or non-guaranteed?
I keep waiting for specifics to come out on that, too.  I would guess a couple of successive 10 day contracts to get them through until Wilcox comes back.  By then, Danny should figure out a way to trade for a center.

Teams can't sign players to 10-day contracts until January 5.  This is a contract for the rest of the regular season, although it doesn't necessarily have to be fully guaranteed.

I hope not. I hope he's better than Stiemsma. Steimsma was useless during the playoffs last year.

Bradley played with this guy during his short stint in Israel. (During the lockout).

I dont expect anything from this guy. If he delivers im all for it, if he doesnt, cut him simple as that. Some of yall are acting like we just traded Rondo for this guy chill. This is a typical Low risk High reward move.

err, no, we couldn't. Martin is a league vet, his minimum is more than the minimum for a D-league player

Martin has attitude problems too. Supposedly some players on the celtics don't want him here.

Sorry my bad ;D Mistook the league min with the vet min hehe!

I agree that the attitude problem is a big problem, but i still feel like K-Mart instantly could produce something for us compared to the production we are going to see from Varnado.
