  • Peace it's a board. We all will never agree.
I saw IT tweet on Sully Should be signed. Do you guys think someone will take a mini flyer on him this year?

He will be on a team regardless this year, I think at this point he's not willing to take the non-guaranteed minimum offer he's probably gettting.

Really I think it's more, "Go overseas and get paid, or go local and try next summer to get paid"

Also lose as much weight as humanly possible. He's a good basketball player. Too fat.

Sullinger already burned Toronto on a one-year prove it deal, he's going to have to show up already in shape before a team will want to burn a roster spot gambling on him. I'm guessing he winds up in China with the season to get himself right physically, and if he hasn't broken down by then becomes an interesting late-season addition for a playoff team.

He might be better off going overseas.  No NBA team will give him the minutes he's going to need to prove himself over the long haul.  And that's always been the case with him.  He could never play consistently well (or stay in shape) over an extended period of time.

Diet must be real problem. Millions of dollars not enough incentive to eat healthy.

He should get a training camp contract. Past that I think its down to his veteran leadership. If he can show he has a positive influence on the locker room and young players then I think he can stick somewhere for the vet min.

For different reasons he has gone down the same road as Rondo, but he should take a leaf out of his book. Look after the young guys and a team will find a role for you.

I actually wish Danny Ainge would take a low cost flyer on Sullinger rather then the stack of international nobodies and random rookies he keeps signing. Sully his issues but at least we know he can rebound, can make plays in the paint, and can bang around a little. I don't think he's an issue long as we limited him to aroud 20 20 MPG.

I remember him being unplayable in the playoffs two years ago because he was just too slow for the pace of the game.  I'd rather gamble on someone that might actually develop.

I think I saw a quote from him saying he was 320lbs at some point.  Geeezus.

He's fine as long as he plays within himself and doesn't try to do too much.

The problem is that during that playoff run Brad (for some reason I just cannot fathom) kept trying to force things through him, and he's just not that type of player.

The man can't shoot outside 16-18 feet, he can't make decisions on the fly, and he cannot make contested shots in one-one-one situations.  Yet Brad constantly tried to set up him to fling up threes, and kept running plays through him in crunch time.

Defensively in all honesty his issues were more to do with his lack of vertical.  Bigger players would just shoot straight over him. 

But the fact is that he was just being force fed getting too many minutes, and the more minutes he played the less efficient he tended to become.  Give him 15-20 minutes off the bench (filling in alongside more mobile bigs like Marcus Morris and Al Horford) and bring his three point attempts down to max 1 per game and he'd be perfectly fine. 

In his rookie year when he played less minutes and shot a career low number of attempts from three, he had the best season arguably of his career and was actually pretty efficient from the floor. 

Fact is that right now we are desperate for a rebounder who isn't a complete offensive liability, and Sullinger would fill that role better then Zizic, Baynes or Morris in their current states.

I hope he gets picked up. On his Twitter he always talks about how excited he is for Boston this upcoming season, and how he wants to play for us again. Has the talent without a doubt.
