I dunno... he's not a high-flyer like D12 or anything... so 26 isn't that old really. Could easily see him maintaining his production well through to the end of the contract.
MEM is taking a risk and thinking big... but I don't mind the play at all. They're not going to get any bonafide stars to come, so they've locked up the "2nd tier" ones that they have.
Still one of the most formidable frontcourts in basketball.
Eager to see how they get on this season.
