Perfect example of why not to draft a guy off of size and potential alone.

Not a bad signing for OKC. Maybe he can make something of himself there.

He is going to be the 3rd string center, for less than our current 3rd string center, Nazr Mohammed. If it';s for the minimum, for a player with his amount of experience that is only ~900k. It's low risk, potentially high reward. I think he;ll jump Aldrich in the rotation soon enough.

This. It's not a good or bad signing. It's just....a signing. It's not like we could go out and afford a low-post scorer anyway and it does not mean we won't attempt to keep Ibaka. It is what it is, signing a 3rd string center for cheaper than the current 3rd string center.

How is that gonna help them? They still need a viable post option and I doubt Thabeet will fit that build.
