    Bruno's highlights look impressive. I remember a couple of Atlanta Hawks big guys gave us some trouble last game of the season. He was one of them I believe. Does anyone know if his contract is expiring?

    He plays the Theis role last few weeks. No playing time unless garbage time or insurance if Wood or Sengun are unavailable. (E.g. Injury/health safety, ... or suspension after breaking team rules ;)).

    Not about faith.

    I'm saying give him a free look, there is nothing to lose by doing that.

    This team needs rebounding and defense. I toy with a starting lineup of

    Bruno/Segun/Wood/Green/Schroder.

    Who cares if it hinders anything, they are losing team, and need lineup changes/defense. People around here thinks Kpj is the next rising star, but in all hes a nice young player on terrible team. Put him on the suns and see if he stick out. Probably be 10-6 guy on that team.

    Here's some highlights from a G-League game playing on the Celtic's affiliate. Bruno looks bigger than 6'9" and is listed at 6'10.25" in shoes, 240lbs, and an amazing 7'3.25" wingspan. No wonder he looks so big! Reminds me a bit of Capela, but with some handle and the ability to actually shoot. With our young guards and wings being able to pass, he could be a lob machine, in my opinion. Heck, Sengun could get him some easy buckets down low. Check it out:



    Statline: 22 pts (10/15 FG), 10 reb, 2 ast, 2 blk in 29 minutes

    Rockets could have kept Hartenstein for cheap and not go through this backup center churn.

    Harty was a million years ago.

    Lot more significant crap has flowed under this bridge since.

    Hes got a nba body, he needs to focus on rebounding and offensive put backs. He has nice body frame, big guy like landry. Oh well probably trash.
