    The Blazers allow a lot of points in the paint and he's playing C; that can't be good.
    At 6'9" he's not supposed to be a center. But he's playing center and LA who is way taller than him is playing PF. If you can slide him to PF and with JV at C, that could be a good tandem. The guy has wide body and uses his muscle in the paint.

    If he has a legit post up game, i think he deserves consideration.

    For the money he will want and the fact that he is only 1 year younger than Amir, I say no thanks. He may score a little more than Amir and rebound a little better, but he does not seem to move the ball well or block shots for a big, also shoots less than 70% free throws.

    His DRtg is 106. Bosh is 103, Amir is 104 and Griffin is 102. So i guess its not that bad. Considering Portland is 108 and Aldridge is 107. If he plays beside a good defender like JV, his defense will probably rate higher than current.

    I havent seen him play though, im wondering if he has a good post up game.

    Hickson is reportedly notoriously bad on defense; I haven't seen much of him this year, but from all I've read he's going to be overpaid for underwhelming play and some nice boxscore stats from time to time.

    I think he could be an option...but far from an ideal one. Hopefully only a guy they would get if they're unable to acquire one of their top targets.

    started a topic JJ Hickson

    JJ Hickson

    What do you guys think of JJ Hickson?

    Seem like a younger, cheaper Carlos Boozer.

    He's been asked to play the 5 spot in Portland and i think he's done well but they now want a legit Center so that makes him dispensible. But if the Raps make him a starting PF, he's probably do better.

    Thoughts?
