    Can't believe someone gave this scrub an NBA contract in 2018. Should be waived in February at latest.

    Crazy to think this is like a "last chance" for him at 22 years old.

    I can't remember his game, really. Seems he has skills but they're limited and don't translate to the modern NBA center; and his defense isn't there.

    Also seems Codman would often reference him as a trade target ("Young Footwork"), but that could be a bad guess.

    They cant beat the Warriors but I think they could be a real threat to beat up on playoff teams by playing size instead of smallball

    The Warriors backcourt is so talented they can over match just about any team (even some of the more historical teams), but everyone else besides us, is a wild-card of teams who are nowhere as talented as.

    I think he'll stick around as long as he focuses on physical fitness and developing a 3pt shot. Teams can use a guy who can score at will off the bench, as long as there's consistent effort on defense. At the minimum he's a good signing.

    Would’ve rather had him than Nene at this point. He may not be the locker room guy that Nene is but Young Footwork is def a better player.
