This.

Why are thunder fans acting like Thabeet is going to do anything but sit on the bench? He's garbage.

JUST because he's 7'3 doesn't "Add length". I mean, I hope he does well but he hasn't shown anything that would warrant him being a role player in this league.

LMAO and did someone seriously make some African connection with Ibaka/Thabeet?

That's what every other team thought too

It seems like a waste of a signing/roster spot to me.

The majority of thunder fans don't expect him to be anything more than a 3rd center for a better price than Nazr Mohammed.

Meh low risk, potentially decent results signing. He's definitely a better player than what he's shown in his first few seasons. OKC could make him a decent roleplayer.

In his first year he averaged 9.9 rebounds and 3.6 blocks per 36 minutes and shot 58% (albeit on only 8.5 points per 36 and 6.6 fouls per 36).

He certainly (and clearly even at the time) should not have been picked where he was, has shown (albeit not too recently) that he could be a servicable backup.

If it is indeed at or near the minimum then theres no risk and a potentially solid reward.

I do wonder if he picked the right team though, or if this is bad news for Cole Aldrich because there won't be enough minutes to develop them both, unless this is insurance for amnestying Perk somewhere down the line.
