Can't feed him rebounds... he's averaging 11 per 36 with a career Total Rebound Percentage of 18.1 (better than Boozer, Randolph, Bogut)
I love Faried but he was a great fit in Karl's Nuggets teams - a great fit. He won't be as impressive (by a slight margin) on a team that plays at a slower pace and is not in Denver.
He's super athletic and a great weak side help defender - he would add rim protection, which the Raps actually have very little of (23rd in bpg as a team - Denver's 5th).
Agreed that I'm not convinced Faried has the smarts to be a Noah-like defensive anchor. He may get there though.
Amir is still underrated - not untradeable, but underrated.
I'm not saying he's a world beater. But if giving away amir gets the deal done? For a kid whose trajectory looks like a possible sneak in all-star? You do that deal
