Question What's up with Haddadi?

He hasn't been waived, but he's not here.

His wiki page says this:

However, Haddadi could not immediately report to the Raptors due to immigration issues.

Me too.

FWIW, here's Hollinger's thoughts on him.

Quote:
Scouting report
+ Plodding big man who can impact the game around the basket. Outstanding rebounder.
+ Struggles in transition and gets winded quickly. Can't defend outside the paint.
+ Prone to turnovers, but makes short shots around the basket and hits his free throws.

Analysis
Haddadi's career path remains the same -- he looks pretty good on a per-minute basis because the Grizzlies are very good about playing him in situations when he can succeed, and never outside of them. His rebounding numbers for his career are incredible and he does a solid job converting his interior catches into points. His only real offensive negative is a penchant for illegal screens and three-second violations, and that he clogs up the spacing a bit.

Defensively, however, he can only impact the game in a short zone around the basket area, which means he can't be asked to defend mobile bigs, or 3-point shooters, or pick-and-rolls, or teams that run, or & well, you get the point. Stick him in there for five minutes to play the middle in a zone, or guard somebody like Joel Anthony, and he'll be fine. Beyond that, his limitations become glaringly apparent. And after five minutes, he'll be wheezing.

Nonetheless, every team could use a big guy such as this to gum up the works against certain opponents, and he adds offensive punch, too. It's tough to pencil him in as a rotation player because his limitations will be exposed with regularity, but he's an extremely useful third center.

I wonder if he's better than Aaron Grey. I know he got some minutes in Memphis and apparently they loved him.

Yeah, I was wondering that myself. He wouldn't provide much value during games, but if we're paying his salary, we could at least use him as another big body in practice, especially if he's not terrible on D...

He's a sweetener in a deal, or we deal Gray and Haddadi becomes our fifth big.... and we become WAY less good looking as a team.

This was reported at the time of the deal. VISA issues will prevent him from playing in Canada (I believe he has never crossed the border) due to serious issues with the current Canada-Iran relationship. As such, he is not being integrated to the team. It was reported that Colangelo would look into moving him again before the deadline rather than just waiving him.

he's being kept on the roster so his contract may be used in trades to balance the salaries if necessary

I couldn't care less about kleiza's knees either. hadaddi has a better contract with respect to his talent than kleiza considering kleiza can't get on the fucking floor without blowing a knee. he should be playing in antarctica, or mixing it up with thugs.


sorry, my nationalism got the best of me there
