So yeah, we got Kenyon Martin
, that went quite well so far, let'S see, how it pans out, but I'm confident, this will work out and character issues will not be that much of a problem, with the culture we have and with Chris Paul
and Chauncey and Caron around.
But I've read a few articles on the Kenyon signing and some of the readers comments reflected exactly what I thought... we already have Reggie, adding Kenyon doesn't really give us anyone exceptionally tall for the second team. Wouldn't it have been nice to get a 7-footer?
These days a good 7- footer for back-up is a hard find. They all come at insane price tags, they're almost all incredibly stiff and a lot of them can't really do much except for... breathe,... exist, maybe raise their arms every once in a while.
Now I know, it's too late for this season, but there might be someone, we can draft, who might have a lot of potential: Lucas "Bebê" Nogueira.
Nbadraft.net says, among his stenghts are his length (theres a pic on google, he appears taller than Dwight), his quickness, and his good balance, and that he can change directions quickl, has a shooting touch and converts his free throws (!), plus he's a shot blocker an rebounder.
His weaknesses are listed as being lazy, having a stars attitude, feeling entitled and being too skinny!
I think, if theres any way we can draft this kid, he will fit in tremendously. He blocks, he rebounds, he can develop an offense, and you can not be too lazy and entitled around two humble, talented guys like Blake + Blake will show him the importance of working out and BG and DJ can help him with the bulking up.
He might be a catch, if we can't get him. Also, his speed and agility make it possible for him to sub as a big four. For times, when we could use a defensive minded 7 feet wall of him + DJ.
Plus it seems these days a good team needs a good foreign guy... and we don't have one.
So, my question, would you want him on the team? Can we get him? What do you think?
