Default Hollinger: Summer Transactions - Let's Review

Hollinger discusses the summer of transactions from around the association. This is what he had to say about some of our boys.

Will Solomon - Will Solomon and Lorenzen Wright signed with the Raptors and the Cavs, respectively, for the minimum. They both are overpaid. Solomon washed out of the league five years ago, and his numbers from Europe have been unimpressive since; Wright was such a horrific bust with the Hawks that he didn't play even though they were desperate for frontcourt help. There's little evidence that either player belongs in the league.

Roko Ukic - Toronto inked Croatian guard Roko Ukic to back up Calderon; his European stats suggest he's a marginal backup at best and might not be up to the challenge.
