I remember when the Sonics wasted a lottery pick on this guy. Pretty sure everyone knew he would be a bust except for the Sonics.

He was signed bc of his absurd reach. I know his wingspan was very near 8 feetand he is only 7 foot. Probably hoping he would be some defensive force like Mutombo. Everyone was shoked when he was picked and everyone knoew how raw he was. DIdnt stop the Sonics to waste yet another pick on a wasted big man

Yeah, these type prospects are usually always taken for some type of crazy physical measurement/athleticism. Looking back at the 2006 draft, it was ridiculously weak, so I guess I understand why they took a chance on him.

A really poor sitting on the side of the street with nothing but a penny man's Dikembe Mutumbo.

It wasn't just that he had shown almost no pedigree before he was drafted, but the fact that they had just drafted Robert Swift and Johan Petro the two years prior. How many big man projects do you need? It's not like they had no other holes to fill. Even the year before that they drafted Collison I believe.

Anyway, as for the Knicks, I don't think this is a bad roll of the dice at all. In fact, it's these athletic bigs that float all over the league whom I think Dantoni's system is so valuable for. I think it's part of the reason he was persued by ownership, because he seems to be able to pull value beyond what a player can demand in salary from these fringe type guys, and lets you penny pinch down the roster. He's not as good as Wilcox (another athletic big cast off by OKC scooped up by the Knicks), but he's younger. I don't think this is a bad idea for the Knicks. And they need to start getting big guys acclimated on the cheap in case they eventually have to shed David Lee. They have almost no depth up front as it is.

If he can come in and block a shot a game i'd be happy. We have no interior defense.

I liked Sene as a late first round pick for the Knicks in 2006. Still can't believe the Sonics grabbed him in the top 10.

Considering how small the deal is it really is there is not much risk to this move.
