Default Solomon Jones

What are your guys' thoughts on Solo? He's an athletic big guy with a 7'4 wingspan. If he can develop some sort of an offensive game, and maybe bulks up a little bit more, I can see him joining in the future of this team.

Thoughts?

True. For a kid with a 7'4 wingspan and freakish athletics, i would hope if he can develop some offense, that he could be a big time player for us.

I like this signing by the Pacers. He is a defensive presence around the basket, and he has the ability to block shots. I have also heard that his mid range jump shot has improved and is continuing to improve.

I know nothing about Solo Jones other than numbers. A defensive big is always welcome though, just have to see if that's what he really is.

Also, I very much look forward to the Hans Solo duo.

Reminds me of a poor man's Steven Hunter.

And Steven Hunter isn't even good.

that was mean. i don't think Hunter has played an actual game in years.

just checked out Jones' stats and they aren't that great but he's young so at least he's got that going for him. how long is his contract w/ us?
