Re: Blazers add old F/C Kurt Thomas
 
Not the best signing, but not the worst. Kurt is ancient, but still pulled down nearly 6 rebounds per game in just under 23 minutes. Without Roy on the team, the Blazers are poised to be more of a running team than they have been in years past. Kurt's age and decreasing mobility aren't great for a running team, but I think he is experienced enough to know how to rebound and pass out to start the break for the 4 other players on the court.

Overall response: Meh.
