Andrew Bynum was drafted as a project and not an immediate impact player, now he is one of the top centers in the league. In his first season he saw limited floor time with only 7.3 mpg. Last year we received Soloman Alabi from the mavs for cash, and he barely saw any floor time. Are the raptors organization trying to replicate what L.A did with Bynum and increase his minutes over the next few seasons and turn him in to a solid center? I would be happy if we get a serviceable backup out of him.
I don't think so. They took a flier on Alabi because of his size and physical tools. He's no Bynum. He's not as talented as Bynum was when Bynum entered the league straight out of high school... And Alabi is 22.
