Putting up some pretty impressive stats in only 18 minutes a game:

The Idaho Stampede are affiliated with the Nuggets, Trail Blazers and Jazz but may be worth trying to work out something with them.  After all, you can't teach height.

At first I thought this thread was going to be about the recently signed Ricky Davis.  Thank god.

I'm always down for a 7'5 guy who averages 3.5 blocks in 18 mins.

It doesn't work that way, unless he is under contract with an NBA team then he is a FA for any team in the NBA. Much like the Cs hold no rights over ricky davis while he plays for maine.

Also would rather take a shot at Greg Smith

Ha ha.

Okay, so I'll bite: why do they play him only 18 minutes a game, with all of four shot attempts per game?

I see he shoots a lower FT percentage than Shaq and has almost 2 TO's per 18 minutes.

Addendum:

Okay, here's a pretty good current story on him:

That may be but I'd take that production over the DNP-CD that Sasha Pavlovic is ringing up.

was having a look at d league players

some "standouts"

jamal sampson

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/s/sampsja01.html

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/jamal_sampson/

jamal sampson, has been useful whilst in the nba(TS% of 52%, RB% of ~ 20% in very limited foul prone nba minutes), think he went to china after failing to beat out steamer, much rather danny sign him than hollins

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/brian_butch/index.html

brian butch, steamer's badger teammate can hit three's and board.

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/julian_wright/index.html

juliam wright, only 23, not a four, but an ex lotto pick than can play as a small 4 or on the wing, don't understand why he is unsigned, apart from the fact he doesn't hit threes

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/nick_fazekas/

http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/f/fazekni01.html

can shoot and board, had a TS% of 55% and RB% of 19% in limited nba minutes. Not a great athlete.

http://www.nba.com/dleague/playerfile/malcolm_thomas/

23 year old, undersized four (6-9, 225) who is ranking up
blks, board and points in d league.

Butch, Fazekas and Sampson are intriguing.  The 7-5 kid I would not touch.

Stinksma...

Not exactly "lightning"... more like accidentally shocking your finger on a door handle after rubbing your socks on the carpet.

Im glad we are depending on the D-League to get us the players this year to allow us to win Número 18. I feel better now that I know we are doing whats necessary to go over the hump. Thank God! ;D

17% free throw his senior year. he would just get fouled for a free turnover.

Hey, hey, hey.  the C's probably wouldn't be in the playoffs and Danny would have more aggressively peddled the Aged Three at the trade deadline if Stiemer hadn't stepped up admirably and played through two injured feet to help save the season.

If Danny were to look for a second strike of lightning from the D league, I bet he'd like to take this guy for a test drive:
