Oberto, a 6-foot-10 center spent four seasons with the Spurs, averaging 3.6 points and 3.9 rebounds, and was the starting center for the 2007 championship team. The Wizards have planned on signing a veteran big man for somewhere between the league minimum and the bi-annual exception (roughly $2 million). For a player with Oberto's experience, the minimum offer would be $854,957.
Yeah, when I thought of the Wiz signing a veteran big man, I didn't think of Oberto. But he has been on a championship team and he's a tough guy...still would prefer McDyess just like you. Problem is he's too expensive for the amount of money we want to spend.
Yeah man I've been here for a while and nothing's changed. It's never been really active. It's basically just me, you, Burrito and Butters. There used to be a guy here GeeWiz15 who used to post a lot and was the mod for this particular forum but I don't know where he went. I guess we just have to wait once the season starts and if we do well as expected, some other posters will come in here and it will start to pickup. I just can't wait till the season starts.
Sorry try to post as much as I can. Do you think the wiz are just trying to fill a spot with the cheapest thing they can find? I swear I heard that they would be willing to go over the cap if meant getting talent in here that would help us win. No offense to Oberto but I think he just filled a spot to keep Duncan from playing against the bigger centers. If we want to make bone head moves Kwame Brown and Juwan Howard are available
