Default Wayne Simien

i got this idea from another web site i was trolling on...:)



with all this talk about webber (who's quite old)....why dont we take a look at a guy like wayne simien....he was a beast at kansas and is still pretty young....

he's battled a few injuries with the heat and was traded to minny in the offseason....then he was cut by minny because he couldnt give them a timetable for his injury...

well, he's now recovering and looking for a team.....why not take a stab at him?

thoughts?



p.s. i still like the idea of bringing in webber....but i was just exploring some of the other options we have.

Interesting idea. Good find.

The problem with Wayne is that he's undersized and athletic. It's true that undersized bigs are making a resurgence--Gomes, Hayes, Maxiell, Millsap et al.-- but the players I just listed are all either quick and mobile (Gomes, Hayes), or extremely long (Millsap has a 7'2 wingspan; Maxiell has a 7'4 wingspan).

Wayne a twinner. Too small or too slow for every position.Wayne isn't as athletic as all those other guys. He did good in college because players are alot smaller. He'll be out of the league probably by next year..
