I hope he does well...as he did seem like a good guy...but I'm very glad it's on some team other than the raptors.

I knew it was only a matter of time before the T-Wolves picked up a big name Free Agent to replace Kevin Garnett

He's just in for Training Camp. I doubt he'll make the roster.

Last time I ever rim stuffed was way back in 8th grade, and I was 6'1 at the time. This guy is 7'0 and he can't get the ball over the ring?

This must be Babcocks last ditch effort to redeem himself for picking him in the first round.

sorry Mike....but solace yourself in the fact you picked up Jose Calderon.

Araujo was probably the most unskilled big man when he was int he league. Dude just looks lost constantly. If he does come back, you can bet he is not going to be playing much

Like I said before, this is true and it is quite sad because by all accounts I have read he is one of the hardest workers in the league. That praise came from Jerry Sloan himself and he doesn't say that about just anybody. All of the hard work obviously has not payed off in any way, shape or form.

Maybe it's from his confidence. He does have huge arms and he seems pretty quick for his size. Maybe he's a really shy guy?

He has zero fundamental skills. It deeper than just confidence. He just does not know where to rotate and is a liability on the court

He also has short arms, can barely jump and really isn't that quick. Having no athleticism and no talent is tough to overcome.

Kwame easily. Kwame averaged like 13 and 7 one year, something reasonable and moves fluidly and has had his moments in the past. Hoffa averaged like 2.2 and 2.3 his best year and has never looked even remotely like he belongs in the league. Kwame could still turn into a productive big man, he defends well and when he plays with confidence is a positive factor for a team.
