    Default Jason Collins anyone?

    Just reading the usual sports banter and found out that Jason Collins is still without a job. I think, he'd be a more serviceable big man behind JV and even provide veteran leadership for the big Val. Collins is a legit center who won't ask for the ball and will be unselfish. He knows his role and provides extra 6 more fouls on the bench. He's got playoff experience and was a big part of the New Jersey Nets run into the NBA Finals. And even better, you can sign him to the veteran minimum.

    What do you guys think?

    Good god no.

    He is 35 years old and terrible.

    He's been terrible for 6-7 years.

    Chuck Hayes is a much better option.

    His sexuality be damned. I could really care less about it. The reason he is not in the NBA is because he is old and hasn't been able to play for a long time.

    I prefer Chris Kaman if we're looking for a back-up big. I'm willing to go with Hayes although he makes me nervous.

    If we want to sign a FA, how much can we pay? I thought we're capped out?

    Nope just a lyric from a rap legend. I dont think he was trying to be funny just an opinion and an offensive one.

    Collins to me is like a throwback to the big lumbering centers that didn't seem particulary good at anything who were everywhere in the 90's, tbh I'm surprised he lasted this long. Maybe he was a good defender at one point.

    Ideally I want a younger, more mobile center to backup JV.
