    Default Everything Jared Sullinger



    I love how the players themselves are always the ones who break the signing to the public.

    Still lots of upside. I Like this signing, not a great defender, but solid all around.

    Yes great upside but these one year contracts like Biz means if they over achieve then we can't resign them ..

    main page says there was a meeting with masai. guessing what the team wants from him was stated pretty clear. guessing scola is number 15 now in case this fails.

    Hopefully this becomes another example of Masai plucking someone useful of a team that committed so much money and playing time elsewhere

    But it's a good tactic with players like Biz and Sully, they're young guys with lots of potential who have underachieved and are almost out of the league. You give them one last shot and you tell them if they have it in them they can succeed and get a bigger paycheque down the line. If they can everyone wins (even if just for a year) and if they can't you lose nothing.

    We clearly struck out on the real FAs this off-season so going for a flyer is a good option.

    I've always liked his game, didn't realize he got so fat last year that he only played 5, but let's hope he can change that here.

    Not to deviate from the thread but do you remember what the first thing Masai said when he got here? He wanted to change the culture. That seems like such an abstract concept but here we are. Sure, anyone would be happy to sign a $6 million contract but to hear it from the athlete first with a nod to the brand that now defines us....that's something.

    Cool. The man can play some post. BIG body. He should be motivated to play his best basketball and to come in to camp in the best shape he can.

    He can. 40% from 16-23 ft last year, 46-48% the two years prior.

    How was Sullinger almost out of the league? He was a key rotation member of a good Boston team and they're not thrilled to let him go

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    This is the best we could do signing unlike biz Jared is what u see is what u get. I like a big body on rebounders but don't expect weak side shot blocking or defence in general.

    The more I think about this pick up the happier and more content I am. Sure he could get in better shape, but he's very effective playing overweight. Good rebounder, physical, soft hands. I think he'll start with Tupat coming off the bench most of the time. Tho I'm perfectly happy with Tupat starting too.
