After drafting Williams and with the likelihood Baynes is coming back... I don't see the C's even considering Dwight anymore. Even if they did, how many minutes would he get on the floor? Not much.
So y’all think a 18 year old 27th pick rookie is what makes us not draft a vet who can snag 30 boards on any given night? He is the 27th pick ppl...Yabusele was higher than that and hardly get burn what the heck..... Dwight would by far our best bet at Center idk what y’all smoking but I want it.
If you had the choice of Baynes or Dwight Howard for same pay please explain to me how you pick Baynes??
Howard may be better than Baynes, but there is also a reason he's been getting tossed around in the league the last 4-5 years (last two years, been dumped by ATL and CHA for garbage). Seems like a locker room cancer and there are some reports that say Horford doesn't like playing with Howard (it *might* have also played a factor in FA when he came to Boston and didn't stay in ATL who had also just signed Howard).
Baynes also knows this system better and fits the scheme better (and he seems to have added a 3-point shot to his arsenal, too). Also Baynes can defend well.
I agree Williams may not make much of an impact this year, but we'll also be getting a healthy Theis back. Don't see Howard getting 30 minutes a night here, maybe 20-25. Personally, I wouldn't mind bringing in Howard as a low risk, super-high reward using the vet. minimum. I mean, if it didn't work out and they saw it early, they could simply dump him.
Whatever happens, I'll trust Danny and CBS. I do think Boston is considered Top-4 in "odds" to land him in FA (along with Golden State, Portland, Cleveland). Maybe Wizards, Bucks and Raptors are in the mix too?
