He was advertised as raw.  I don't think Danny had any expectations when Fab was drafted that he'd be at all useful this year.  Hopefully next year, but I wouldn't be surprised if not until 2014-2015.

Never mind "not ready for prime time", he's not ready for garbage time.

Keep working at it Fab.

I was one of those that said to put him in because he can't be worse than Collins, but [dang] he really is, lol

I am not going to call the kid a bust right now.  Afterall, we should all learn from what happened with Avery.  But, as I mentioned to all those clamoring for him over Collins, the kid is defintely worse than Collins right now.  Shoot, he could be the worst player in the league at this very moment.  Uh, at least he was when he was on the team.

He was not a good college player at all.  he has size and nice defensive instincts.  He just needs to improve his post moves, hands ( rebounds will come with this) and his strength level.  Trouble is, he is not even the best player on the red claws.

I think this means a bigger something is in the works. Send him back cuz we won't need him. Maybe we've picked up Amundson or something.

People really judge quickly... smh. How many years did it take for Perk to develop?

And Avery Bradley? I also thought he sucked during his first season and the his early sophomore season.

Jeff Green? The scapegoat of this blog because of his 9m contract?

Give the big guy a rest. It's not easy to develop a raw big guy. It will take time. If he still doesn't develop in a year or two, then it's safe to say that he is a bust.

I'm not against sending him back to d-league. In fact, i'm all for it. If he can't sniff any minutes in the main league besides garbage time, then sending him back is the best decision. I think he will get his time on this team next season or two.

The thing I have notice with Fab, and I noticed this during the summer league as well is that he jumps for the block after the ball is already in the air because he is going for that homerun swat.  Probably worked for him in college or D-league.

He is a big dude, if he would just jump with the man he is guarding, I think he would get to a lot more balls before they even leave his defenders hands or shortly thereafter.  Hopefully that is something he is working on.  Perk had the whole gathering before he shot issue which I think this is analagous to.  It's a bad habit that needs to be broken and that is better suited for the D-league. 

I think Ainge can find a better option for us this year.  Dang, who would have thought that Darko would be missed so much.  He really is exactly what we need right now!
