Other than him having a great name, let's talk about what he can bring to the team.

Hopefully we sign him.

From the couple of videos I've seen, he has a little bit of a mid-range game, and he can get up to dunk and swat shots. Looks like the type of player we've been needing at the PF position.

Sounds like with a little more muscle he can easily play center too... but then again he's probably already stronger than Solo (not hard to do)... :-p

Nah, listening to his workout video, this guy actually wants to go to the weight room and gain strength... (Pointing back to when Solo got suspended and then benched for skipping weight lifting... and who can forget the countless times he was pushed out of the post by guards?... also if he has any basketball IQ and doesn't run around like a chicken w/ his head cut off he beats Solo there too! Sorry Solo just really irritates me :mad:)

Yea... he seems like he has a much better work ethic than Solo.... and... I'll take anybody that jumps rather than murph at 4....

Just watched a short video of him, and aside from the fact that he was picked in the 50s and will more than likely be a total non-factor...he looks to be pretty athletic and long, so hopefully he can be the steal of all steals and turn into a superstar somehow.

Other than that, he's got a cool name.

If he makes the team, I want his # to be 44 with Magnum instead of Rolle above it. :D

Meaning Solo will be gone?! (He wears #44) :signit::dance::-p

That's how irrelevant Solo is that I didn't even remember #44 was his #.


Can anyone give any info on Magnum? I don't even know where he played college ball, how many years in college, age, stats, abilities, size, position played, etc.

This is just another player that will be in the competition on who will drink the most gatorade while sitting on the bench.

I would prefer his number be "40oz" if his jersey name is Magnum.

Rolle looks like a pretty solid pick near the end of the draft. He has NBA height, length, and athleticism and his rebounding is supposed to be pretty solid. However, he's not strong enough and needs to add some muscle mass to be effective. His offense appears to be very, very raw, although he does appear to have a decent jumpshot. I've watched a few videos of him, and he looks like he's decent enough with put-backs and tip-ins, but he'd need a lot more strength to do that as a role player in the NBA. He also looked surprisingly solid at catching and shooting from mid-range, but I'd need to see him some big games to be convinced that he is much of a threat there.

Rolle's bragged about his own work ethic. If he truly is willing to work, they could get a role player out of him by putting him into an intensive strength building routine and maybe letting him spend some time in the D league. He's a project, but he's a cheap project with low risk involved. I thought it was interesting to hear the comments from Bird that Rolle shared in that interview.

At least to JOB.... 3 3PT attempts in 3 years? Tsk, tsk...

He did make one, so I guess 33% isn't too bad...


Anybody know why he missed the 07-08 year? Injury?

Why even post if all you have to say is "irrelevant" or "bench warmer"? Yeah... hes a second round pick. Most likely wont amount to much, but sometimes they do. Nobody has even seen him play yet.

I mean why draft in the second round at all? They are all bench warmers, especially Gilbert Arenas, Carlos Boozer, Anderson Varejo, Antonio Davis, etc...

Not saying one way or the other on this dude, just saying the cynicism is kind of silly. Is that supposed to be "clever"? More like stateing the obvious.

I thought it was more of a jab at our head coach (when he referred to McRoberts' performance as irrelevant) than Rolle's actual skills...
