    Thanx for the summary and the detailed explanation.

    I knew what Hinkie was doing to those poor second rounders but this year he and Tokoto forced his hand and demanded a tender. Hinkie was holding this kid hostage alr too long. Good thing that the guys and their agents finally decided to stand up to him.

    Around 60 percent. He will fit in just fine here. Lol!
    I am happy that he will get a chance to make the team.
    Rebounding and defense are big needs for us.

    His first name is Arsalan. It means lion or fearless.

    So, he refuses to go to the DLeague, is a fringe NBA player at best at this point, and Morey picked him up? Something doesn't add up here.

    I wonder if he's going to falsely complain that the coaching staff is racist to further his career like he did at Rice.

    One could argue that it adds up to him giving good hustle and effort in training camp and therefore being a good guy to have keep our regulars on their toes... until, of course, we cut him.

    Was it the coaching staff, or was it the Athletic Director that he complained about? And weren't there other people that made similar complaints, including an assistant coach? Also, didn't the NCAA find that there may have been some merit to claims of discrimination by granting Kazemi and another player a hardship waiver allowing them to transfer to another college without penalty?

    They complained about the AD, some assistant coaches, and players. Oregon embellished a lot of the claims to increase the probability of the player being granted a NCAA transfer without losing a year of eligibility.

    I went to Rice with Arsalan and heard a lot of first hand accounts from different athletes.
