When Charlotte drafted him, he became an unrestricted FA -- only Chicago is unable to sign him.

Anyone interested in him? He has career averages of 7.8 PPG and 4.4 RPG in 16 minutes per game. He's 25, 6-8, 260. A tweener, sure, but he can play.

Not unless the Pacers make some other major moves. We don't need him with Al, Ron and J.O around.

I guess I assume Al and/or Ron will be moved, making our second/third units a bit thin on the front line.

He is Harrington-lite, with defense subtracted.

If Al were dealt, he might be OK as a bench guy, though he thinks more highly of himself than do the coaches he's played for, apparently.

In this market he may get the 5 million exception, which is far too much IMO for a 7th/8th man

From what I've been seeing, he doesn't even appear on anyone's radar, so I doubt he'll get anyone's full MLE.

He's had knee problems.

Who ever brings him in it should be for only a 1 or 2 year deal until he proves he's healthy.

He reminds me of a poor mans Boozer.

Atlanta would be a good fit.
