    Great news! Except we’re going to need a JV team to accommodate all these guys!

    Great stuff. Lets see if he's ready to contribute. I would really like Ramsey or Miles to start emerging for 5-10 minutes a game......

    To tell the truth, I had basically forgotten about him and never expected him to play. This is good to hear and I’m sure the young man is excited to begin playing again.

    That was an impressive 4 minutes! Kid has some legit size....looks to be 6'9" as listed and every bit of 233 lbs.

    So he's played a total of 7 minutes in 2 seasons but those are some efficient minutes! A perfect 3-3 from the field with 3 boards. It would be nice to see what he can do with some additional run but he probably will only manage a few minutes here and there. I'm going to assume that stamina will be an issue. Wasn't his injury due to an ongoing problem with his legs?

    yeah knee issues which is obviously scary....loved seeing him out there last night and contributing. Like you said, he looks like a legitimate 6'9 with athletic ability...would love to see him out there for 7-8 minutes a game moving forward to provide a spark and some much needed muscle inside.

    First time I can remember him playing, although I know he got a few minutes in game early last year.

    His legs look skinny and weak. I’m sure that much of that is just from being off them for so long. Hopefully he remains healthy and by next year has built them back up and gets that solid base under himself. I do think he earned some minutes and would like to see how a lineup with he and Freemantle in it would do.

    loved what he brought last night, but it did have some Dontarius James vibes to it. Not sure he actually deserves regular minutes, but hope he stays healthy enough to practice consistently and have a good off-season. We desperately need his size and athleticism. It's critical that either him or Miles turns into a frontcourt role player next year.

    He looked mobile and long. Some really nice size to be able to throw out there, especially as his conditioning improves.
