    Sure, why not....We need an extra big body. Let him fight at C for back up minutes.

    If raps can't pick him up, someone will claim him before waiver clears.

    With the Camby buyout I can definitely see MU going after him. He's a young big with potential. Those are the type of signings he's been going after this off season. Can't go wrong with another big in the rotation, especially one that is known more for their defense then offense.

    His fancy stats look nice. He is cheap and I can't think of another C we can get for "free"

    Talking about cheap signings, it's what Ujiri has IMPRESSIVELY done this year. He has acquired potentially good players for cheap, without committing long term. While Tyler H and Augustin come from the E Conference finals team, Buycks could prove to be an absolute steal of a signing. Add the Bargnani trade, he scores full marks in his off-season transactions.

    Why not sign B James as well?

    Ok here's his Basketball-Reference.com Link

    Very interesting numbers. However, I would point out that his birthday is February 7th, 1985 So he's like 28.42 years old. Not sure how he managed to be a 26/27 year old senior in college, but he did.

    Other than his age, I have I like him.

    He served a long time in the Air Force, putting off his basketball career. Would be a weird twist if someone who served his country so long ended up playing in another one.

    James had a good college career at Florida State after coming to basketball relatively late.

    So you're saying he's the second coming of David Robinson?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Initially the age thing was a concern, but he sounds like he'd be a good locker room guy, and with the amount of youth on the team it's not bad to have someone a little older, but still have some upside. Since JV is our starting center for the foreseeable future he could be a solid back up. There's worse things we could do with his roster spot.
