Haddadi has been a contributer for Memphis although in limited minutes because of their stud big men.

He is a pretty good rim protector, can set a mean pick, and has a surprisingly nice touch around the basket.

He's still pretty young and raw but he can give you a very solid 10-15 min in big games or playoff games.

Pretty sure him and Gay are like best friends tho so I think they'll try and keep him

I  think he's a good tight end and commend Belichek for signing him. He certainly can back up Gronkowski as a fair blocker and occasionally can catch a pass. I like him.

You left out my option-

Hamed Haddadi is probably a useless center but OMG SIGN HIM BECAUSE I REALLY WANT HIM ON OUR TEAM

I've had a crush on Haddadi ever since someone brought up signing him this summer. In all seriousness, though, I think he's the slowest player in the entire league. We of all teams would have a lot of trouble hiding that.

Who do we have that's slow on our team?

Arguably Pierce and I guess Collins?

Am I missing someone? Are Sully and Bass slow for a power forward? I really don't think so

We are probably the fastest team in the league

He has great basketball IQ, some skill, and great height.

Misleading thread title. Looks more like news that rumor.

Anyway, he's a project. Dont think he is worth it with Melo being molded for the center role.

PICK 2: Trail Blazers
PG: Lillard/ReggieJackson
SG: D. Green/Miller/Wroten
SF: Leonard/Prince

He's been in the league for 2.5 years now, never warranting more than 5-6 minutes a game. That's not a "project" type of player, it's a "no NBA skills" one.

No, he's not. And that's quite telling.
