He could turn into a Shawn Marion at SF (rebounding, running the floor and defense), and playing him next to Bargnani would be a great fit, imho.
Show me one 6'11" outstanding player that starts at SF. How can he defend the smaller speedier guys and tell me how he can drive on them? And if he can't shoot 3s like Donyell Marshall then what does he do? He will be a niche piece as part of a rotation playing against the 2bd squad where he won't be exposed too bad. That's the best I would hope for.

PS And don't tell me he can start at PF cause he can't.
