While I see what you are saying in the rest of that post, I'd disagree with the assertion above. IMHO, while he will stay overseas for another season (which, in all likelihood, won't be a season over here), he is going to come over for 2012-13 and contribute at least on one end of the floor almost immediately. As in: I do not expect him to be Alabi-like, more Ed Davis-like.
