Raps sign Ben Uzoh to a 10-day contract
 
Quote:

Okay, folks, time to get to know Ben Uzoh.

The press release should come out later this morning Ė not precisely sure when but itíll be before the 9:30 a.m. start of their day Ė telling all and sundry that Uzoh, a 6-3 guard whoís been toiling with Rio Grande Valley of the D League, is the latest add-on as the season marches inexorably to its dreary end.

Donít know an awful lot about him, I do recall he had a cup of coffee with the Nets last season and had an oh-so-brief time in Cleveland last month.

Itís unclear whether itís another 10-day deal or something until the end of the season but with Jerryd Bayless being hurt Ė and Bayless wanted to keep going last night even after his hip seized up Ė more guard help canít hurt.

Unclear, again, whether heíll really help or get a chance to play but considering Alan Anderson got eight minutes last night even though he probably hadnít even met some of his teammates, itís entirely possible that Uzoh ends up in the rotation tomorrow night.

Looks decent

And in other news, I found a grape between the fridge and the kitchen counter today. It had been there a while and had become a raisin. :reporter:


I'll assume this is another guy they want to get a quick look at as an end of bench guard......'tho they could have had Lin serve that purpose for about $1.50. ;)

Uzoh sounds like a power word for the Weirding Module.

You found a grape.... but it was a raisin..... something fishy about your story. Was it a grape or a raisin? More Uzoh please.

I think those were his college highlights......:sigh:

js12 03-27-2012 09:46 PM

I signed him to my 2K Association a while ago.

Solid athlete and shooter in the game. :haha:

Bucks have the Udoh to Udrih connection humming. Too bad Ben Uzoh snatched from D-League by TOR
did we just ruin the bucks chances at the playoffs?!?

high five BC!

Ha-ha.

Usually you can make anyone seem somewhat intriguing in a mixtape. I'm just left staring blankly. He should probably get out to the ROM, the CN tower, the waterfront, take in a Jays exhibition game.....really get out there and see Toronto during his time here. But he should probably keep his suitcase packed.

MikeToronto 03-28-2012 02:04 PM

What's interesting is that he is billed as a PG, while his highlights include not a single pass... :cookie::reporter:
