Default Whatever happened to Bonzi Wells?

Why not give Bonzi Wells the veteran's minimum or something? I checked that he's been playing basketball in China but I remember before leaving the NBA, he was a great rebounder at the SG position, he was a fairly good scorer and played pretty good defense when he felt like it. Obviously his best years are behind but I think he's still got some left in the tank, he just needs someone knocking at his door. If Delfino's asking for too much, we should take a look at him unless his intentions are to stay in China.

Another option after Delfino could be Jerry Stackhouse but the question with him is, is he willing to take the veteran's minimum or the rest of our mid-level exception to play in Toronto?

I never even thought of the name Bonzi Wells; he could be a good addition at the vets min. But he really reminds me alot of Devean George.

Bonzi's happy in China putting up 40/gm.

I've always thought that he had a load of talent.... but his attitude is a real question mark.

I don't see him as a "BC type player".

Actually, we couldn't because of contract issues, that's why we needed other parties involved.
