Sure it makes us bigger up front, but the two are so damn alike that teams are going to figure out how to play them right away. Can you imagine guys just hacking away at Beidrins in crucial game times knowing that the guy can't make a free throw to save his own life?
You also gotta deal with the fact that he's been hurt for a while now, how do we know this is going to be the same guy from 2 years ago? There's just too many too many risks and even though I'd love to get rid of KMarts gargantuan contract for a big, I don't think it would be wise to go for someone like Biedrins when we already have Nene.
Also, VRad is crap. Horrible shooter and currently injured. What's he done recently for one to say, "oh man this guy is pretty good?" At best, he's an okay backup, but not for 7 mil, even if it's expiring. Sorry Rad.
Do you know anything about Biedrins... now I'm not saying he's a great center, but you pretty much described the opposite of him... he's actually a great fit next to Nene IMO... Biedrins is a defensive rebounding center with no offensive skills... he shoots a high percentage b/c he only shoots lay ups and put packs... so he actually is a good fit next to Nene... is he the best player we could get for KMart? no... but he's better than having KMart b/c at this point KMart might not even be healthy for training camp
