Memphis released him earlier today. He would be a cheap pickup and provides some much needed height and length off the bench. He's still very young and has a lot of potential on the defensive end. In a couple of years if he develops properly he could potentially become a great complement to Boogie down low.
He's a legit 7-footer and is only owed $1.3 million this season. The Kings would have ended up paying around the same amount had we got Greg Oden, and Oden is older and has had a well documented history of major injuries. Worst case scenario we could stash him in Reno until he cleans his act up and eventually use him as filler at the trade deadline.
I think he's worth taking a flyer on. He was a 1st rd pick in 2012 after all. What do you guys think?
