Thoughts on Cheikh Samb???

There doesn't seem to be any chatter of his VSL job for the Raps.

I thought he showed some decent defensive potential during VSL. Obviously not starting C potential, but considering our lack of size at the 5 right now, and the seemingly limited options for bigs out there at the moment, I think it might be a good idea for BC to give him a training camp invite if no other teams grab him.

I realize we already have David Anderson for the next season who will probably be the 2011 POB, but DA's defensive skills are not that great really. So I thought maybe Samb for a POB with defense.

Thoughts??

He has an awesome name, but thats about it.

Pass. Plus, we dont have room for him.

why not sign him, where allowed a 15 man roster, just sign him, we could use him against shaq and howard, especially shaq, Howard is physically draining as shaq, Bargnani had to miss a game with back issue because of shaq otherwise he probably would have played all 82 games last year

we probably won't beat boston anyways, why not bring Samb out go guard shaq for whatever 15 to 20 minutes a game that he plays,

True about the room currently, but depending on any possible BC moves (2 for 1) there could potentially be some space opening up.

I know he isn't great I was just thinking of some rent-a-size options to get us through next year if we don't pick up another big through a trade.

Hahaha.....they didn't even mention his name.

At least he went up and tried to block the shot, something that can't be said for most of our squad the past few years.

Look he probably would get posterized a lot, but he would only go into games when we needed to use all our fouls.

I'm not suggesting he starts remember, I was just thinking of him as a third 5.

Who else is out there willing to sign with the Raps to be our third 5??

Cheikh Samb= Soloman Alabi

There both 7'1" and both around 245 pounds.

There both considered shot blockers who don't have any offensive game.

How about Dwayne Jones, who is already signed?

Cheikh Samb isn't necessary. We already have Johnson, Davis, Bargnani, Dorsey, Alabi and Jones as our big men. No need adding a seventh, especially with someone like Samb.
