Toronto got a lot of flak for signing Amir Johnson to the contract they did, and he's still having trouble not fouling.
Milwaukee, on the other hand, haven't been criticized much for paying Drew Gooden more money for the same length of time.
Right now, these are the stats for Gooden:
And these are the stats for Amir:
Gooden is playing 5 more minutes per game than Amir, and thus scoring and rebounding a little more. Their production, per minute, in these two categories is actually very similar.
The big difference, of course, is that Gooden is shooting at a MUCH lower percentage than Amir, which is normal for him throughout his career (it's worse than usual, but generally he shoots below 50%). And Amir is a much better defender than Gooden, despite him being much younger. Plus, when their deals end, Gooden will be 34, whereas Amir will be 29.
I like most of what Hammonds has done in Milwaukee, but I didn't like the signing of Gooden and I still don't.
