    Dorsey is a 6'7 265lb PF/C who is an insane athlete with great strength. Dirty worker who bangs down low and crashes the boards and defends the paint and blocks shots. Really adds to our post defense and probably will log significant minutes as the backup center. Has a 7'2 wingspan and 8'11 standing reach.

    In Donte Greene, he's a good athlete who can stroke it from 3. Needs to play within himself, but we definitely added a scorer who can come off the bench and can add more than a 3 point shooter. He's got the height and athleticism to help in the rebounding department and I can see him developing the ball handling skills to become a better 1 on 1 threat and more of a creater. Can post people up and has a bit of creativity off the dribble, but his main point needs to be improving his ball handling. Definitely a scorer.

    I suggest you hold off any comments until we know exactly what's going on.

    Plain and simple:

    We no longer need Steve Novak

    Yay! *Claps hands*

    Damn, all those alley oops and putbacks. Really reminds me of Landry before his injury. Morey knows how to pick 'em.

    greene is not novak. dude can throw down. i am really liking this pick the more i see of him. he seems like a pretty smart guy as well. he certainly looks much more nba ready than batum did.

    It's a good pick. Batum doesn't look NBA ready, more like a project!

    Holy crapola! This dude appears to be a beast. Damn! Hell, he might end up being the best player we picked today. :eek:

    As long as he doesn't go to the line, where he shoots in the 40% range. ;)

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    But that still leaves an overload at our 4 position. One of em has to go.....who?

    For some reason there was a shot of himmaking a free throw which was odd since the vid was about dunks.

    Sad that I could outshoot him from the free throw line and I play basketball maybe 10 times a year. Could never understand how people that play for a living could be so terrible.

    probably hayes and harris. scola and landry have the 4 locked up and dorsey can play against the more physical 4's. yao, deke, and dorsey have the 5 covered.

    After watching the Dorsey video, he reminds of Jason Maxiell. Undersized PF/C's with a ton of energy, blocking ability, freakish wingspans, and finishing ability.

    I like it.

    Dorsey can replace Chuck Hayes as the backup C. Chuck Hayes can ride pine until the annual Yao injury.
