Fesenko doesn't have much value with Collins already here. Pass.
I hear ya, but, he is much better offensively than Collins, And we have a couple of spots to fill. Why not?
If you haven't done so, check out the highlights on the video, he looks very mobile, and is pretty quick for his size.
Fesenko is brain dead. He is right there alongside Collins as one of the worst offensive centers in the league. A turnover waiting to happen. Terrible decision making. Very nervous and mistake prone whenever he is passed the ball. Defensively, Fesenko has bad fundamentals and poor positioning off the ball. A poor overall defensive player. His rebounding is below average too.
Fesenko is a really bad basketball player. A third string center who's only value is his physical size in the paint defensively and willingness to give hard fouls. Jason Collins already does that for us and Collins does it better.
Again, what is the problem in giving him a shot? He's very young and who knows what he could do in this environment. You seem to think people are saying he is a savior or something.
Let's just say he is nothing but another Collins... that's better than an empty roster spot and whether you believe it or not Collins is better than anyone we'd pick up out of the d-league (Doc wouldn't play them anyway). Now, if we trade to pick up a big, that's a different story and we might be waiting on a waived big (LOL a waived big... who? Not many out there anyway).
We already know what Fesenko is and what he isn't. He has been around for a few years and gotten a fair bit of playing time. We know what he will bring to the table here and what he won't.
The empty roster spot, I think can be put to better use.
I don't think there is any value in bringing in a guy in Fesenko who has a similar but inferior skill-set as Jason Collins. He won't play. He won't add enough to the team.
They can sign someone else who will bring more to the table. I would rather an undersized PF like Amundson over a center with as limited value to the Celtics as Fesenko offers.
If Danny does bring in a new center, I would like to see him either (1) take a risk on someone unknown/unproven [Fesenko is a known entity] like a D-League guy who hasn't gotten a shot yet, or, (2) add a third string center who offers a different skill-set to Jason Collins. Say someone like Ryan Hollins who has very good quickness and mobility and can do different things defensively than Collins can. Or a center who can shoot but is probably quite weak defensively. Something different. A different skill-set to Collins. Give Doc a viable alternative to Collins that could be of some use in certain situations. Not just another similar but inferior center.
