    C'mon, WCS is a stiff. When the Rockets get serious about another real big man, he'll be long and athletic... able to play some serious D, while finishing with authority.

    I'd rather see Bruno and Garuba get a shot. If neither of them are capable grab someone else better or with more potential than wcs.

    So far he's been as bad as the tattoos he's got tatted on his face.

    Do I recall Silas on Mavs’ staff with WCS? If so, perhaps the connection has possibilities?

    He really reminds me of Ralph Sampson, in that they're both tall men.

    Also: WCS is the missing piece to a tanking formula.

    Boban was brought in to maybe join staff development crew.
    Teach Screen and Roll

    WCS might do the same while making the roster.

    Garuba and Bruno have higher ceilings...WCS knows what Silas wants day one.

    Not sure he makes the team but this is what they want from him

    I'm going with no. I see him as solely foul fodder in case Sengun gets in foul trouble/gassed against a center too big for Smith right now.

    He's battling with Boban for just having a roster spot at all.
