this is a good thing, obviously his conditioning is horrible, he needs to get into game shape well not even that, he needs to get into shape before he can get into game shape

We have roster spots open anyways. I think they're doing this to make sure he gets some playing time.

And rightfully so .... Jawai's not ready for the rigors of the NBA yet. Will he ever? That's still to be determined, but he isn't going to improve by sitting on the bench and playing in practice scrimmages. Raps made the right move for Jawai.

Fuck, the right move yes, but dam, a little late? This should have have happened at the begining of the year. Oh well, better late then never.

It couldn't of happened at the start of the season because of the tests on his heart.

Yeah, I too have a feeling Jawai will be back overseas either next season or the one after. Don't see much a future here in the NBA for him.

The best thing to happen to Jawai this year. He is healthy, seems that his ticker is ok so now he must get to play. He must go down to the d-league and not only play but play alot minutes.

He was out with heart troubles at the beginning, when he came back the Raps had injuries to the big man, so they needed him to stay with the team.

Without seeing a D League game, I assume its pretty much a league dominated by guards as they ballhog their way to NBA contracts?
