    Center! This is actually great! We can nail Gray to the bench when our bigs come back from injury!

    I'm actually thinking people are really overlooking him. He's no Ed Davis but he definitely helps our depth.

    He's a 27 year old, true 7-footer (7'2"), with 1 non-guaranteed year left on his contract ($1,397,500). Good depth at C, especially with Valanciunas still hurt and Davis being traded.

    Hamed Hadaddi is from Iran and his passport only allows him to play in the US. Because of this he will currently be unable to play any home games until this is resolved

    Nice little pick up. About the same worth as a second rounder.

    Hamed Haddadi goes from Memphis to Toronto in the trade, but league source says he'll likely be waived and bought out.

    I'd support bringing Ben Uzoh back. Not really a fan of Lucas.
    I won't support calling him Mr. Triple Double though. hahaha

    I don't get this. Gray has always done what he's asked. And Haddadi is just as much, if not more, of a stiff. I've got no problem with it, but I don't think he starts over Gray, that's ludicrous.

    *oh, he's being waived...nevermind..

    He's likely getting waived now because of his visa
