This signing means much more. It will push Dampier to actually try, they will compete for the starting job and one of them will benefit. Maybe Dampier will stop being lazy and actually does something. Diop is not a bad player, he's a young Ben Wallace.

Oh god....I just looked at Diop's career averages and I thought his averages were a bit higher...

Yes, just like it pushed damp the first 3 years they played on the same team
dudes a 7ft and really nothing like ben wallace. decent defender, but nowhere near prime wallace in really any skill set. maybe better offensively

His career per 36 mpg is about 10 rebs and 3 blocks per game? And while he's not a good offensive player he gets put back dunks and he keeps guards out of the paint. Him and Damp make a nice combo at center.

Agreed. Especially since the Mavs main problem are points in the paint.

But for a combined 67 millions dollars??? (Damp has 3 years left at 10+ mill per year)

His "per 36" are ok, but when will he ever play 36 minutes a game? For his career he's only averaged half that (and he's going into his eighth season, not new to the league). The two seasons where he did average more than 18 minutes per game, he was getting more personal fouls (3.0) than points per game (2.4)...

Yeah, all that matters is how well the Mavs do this season, and how Diop will be a solid contributor on the defensive end, but they sure didn't mind shelling out the dough for him. Mavs have the second highest payroll in the league this season, behind only the Knicks - and not much to show for it. If Avery got canned and is taking all the heat (he did get COY with the Mavs, brought them to the Finals, and a 67-win season), Carlisle is going to have to have some pretty immediate success. I wonder if they'll do more than add Diop and Gerald Green, though.
