Well that is good. A 7'2" 22 year old player who is getting 38 games to see if he can contribute going forward - and his salary is paid for by Mr. Cuban.
Sweet, ive been using this guy on NBA 2k11 and switched him for solomon alabi. I play alot better when hes on the court (had to up his ratings cause it was only 43 lol) but he blocks, rebounds and dunks.... how sweet it is!
Cant go wrong here were literally getting a free rookie and hopefully he can make an impact and maybe be resigned.
Been watching some bids on him though, he definetly needs to bulk alot, he is ackwardly skinny and looks brital.
Since the rookie is being paid fully by cuban the peja trade was like a B- IMO. I dont really think they could have gotten much more for peja without it effecting the raps cap space and flexibility in the uncertain future in the NBA with the new CBA.
I swear he has the lowest rating of all the players in 2K11.
Well, he's gotten 6.1 minutes a game and has player in a whopping 47 of them in his career. Maybe he'll develop here. I mean, it would be really nice, wouldn't it. But I'm pretty sure he's a scrub.
I wish that he could play today though. Seeing him and Thabust battle would be funny.
It is a very cheap, low risk, high reward situation. He played for Larry Brown who hates rookies in Charlotte. He played behind Chandler/Haywood/Mahimni in Dallas. D-League means nothing but he did play fairly good down there. No matter what anyone says, he is still 22, athletic as hell, and 7'2" and with Cuban paying his salary while playing for 13-31 Toronto - why the hell not?!?!
Yah i said he was 43 (im prett sure anyways). I increased his ratings in a few departments until he was atleast 60 overall. Here is an entry i found on www.gamespot.com about his 2k11 rating. (keep in mind 2k11 is brutal eith there ratings and really cut alot of players short):
I dumped the 4 gimped players Novak, Cardinal, Mahinmi and Ajinca
Gotten Balkman, Shelden Williams and Ryan Anderson in for them.
The only thing i lost addition to that is both of my 2nd round picks '11 '12
But now my whole team has a lot of depth.
I just hate what 2K has done to those four players. Especially Cardinal and Ajinca.
In real life Ajinca is slowly kicking Haywood out of the rotation and Cardinal does a good job covering for Dirk.
They both deserve a much higher rating. Even Novak should at least be mid 50's instead of 45.
Is there even anything lower in the game than Novak's 45 and F potential?

Ajinca interview. He says he has a jumpshot :)
Going be tough to hit jumpers from the end of the bench. ;)
The reporters must have got neck cricks looking up at the guy. Wonder if he is the tallest Raptor ever?
one of those "low risk hope theres a reward" type guys
