I think Zizic will turn into an above-average backup center.

Same.

I truthfully don't see all-star in him, but he could be a solid player who can also get some starter minutes through the course of a season in case of injuries and such.
I was a zizic booster even before the draft. Glad to see he is doing well.

I agree with posters above. As a ceiling he might start on a second division team, or a good back up on a good team.

I was sorry to see him go, but replacing him is possible. Case in point being Monroe and Baynes.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Considering how the Cavs front office/Lebron rewards this type of output from big men with minimal talent (see Tristan Thompson), he's likely to get a max contract soon if he keeps this up.
Thompson didn't get a max contract.

Uhhh no he doesnt.  It took him 60 games to have a couple mediocre games in a row while playing with the best player in the world whos known for making everyone around him better.

I would have much rather kept him than Yabusele, who I think will turn into an above average CBA player. But no, can haz three point shooting.  >:( :( >:(

Speaking of... looks like Zizic replacement in his Turkish team is Jajuan Johnson!
And he had been playing well.

Remember this:

TP. I forgot about that. Why do we need Zizic when we have his father?

  • Peace it's a board. We all will never agree.
I know Danny can find a big of his quality with our own pick this year. KI is proven playoff finisher and there is maybe 10 of those in the league.

Whatever all of you say about Ante (good, so-so, bad), he is the best nugget Cavs have from the Kyrie deal ATM.

Crowdy = injured Hood, waiting to see
IT = Clarkson (15 mil, not my cup of tea)
Bkn pick = still waiting
2nd rounder = still waiting

Let's get all of this talk straight.

Zizic is from Croatia and doesn't speak German.

Theis is German and speaks German....this is a way better situation already.

Zizic played some Euroball and...whatever.

Theis crushed it for a German team last year at 17.5 ppg.

Zizic was traded to another team because the salary worked.

Theis lead his league in personal fouls for two years straight....the guy is a monstah.

Zizic's new team, the one from Cleveland, has essentially been below .500 since he arrived there and their football team is horrible.

Theis played on an NBA club that won 16 in a row and is home to the greatest NFL team in history.

Theis is better than Zizic.

True,
Keep on mind that there is a concept where players get better with age.
5 years of NBA training regime can do that to a basketball player.

Theis is 26 in a week,
Ante just turned 21.

Or Lebron has another asset to dangle in that everlasting quest for adding yet another star to the super-team  :laugh:

True, but definitely was overpaid.  Kinda how everything works around the Lebron circus.
