Dallas has signed Yi Jianlian

This happened a couple days ago. Didn't see it anywhere...


Quote:
DALLAS -- Yi Jianlian, the 6-foot-10 Chinese forward the Dallas Mavericks have long coveted and have agreed to sign to a one-year deal, is in Dallas and attended Monday's 100-87 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Jianlian will likely first be sent to the Frisco-based Texas Legends of the D-League and that a timetable for his debut with the Mavs isn't known.

"Time will determine that," Carlisle said. "It's going to take him awhile to get used to what we're doing. He may spend some time in the D-League initially. And so, I can't give an accurate answer right now as far as when exactly he's going to be up and on the roster."

Jianlian will become the 15th and final player on the Mavs' roster. He was playing in China and is recovering from a minor knee injury. He has played four seasons in the NBA with three teams prior to joining Dallas.

He's one of the better unsigned Free Agents. Makes sense if Dirt Nabisco misses some games.

This guy is a shooter, might be a good fit for him in Dallas. I haven't seen his defense so other then that meh. Don't know why wizards dropped him.

His defense is poor to say the least. I compare him to Rashard Lewis without the 3 point shooting.

I was going to say I haven't seen his defense either.

I can see it being ok as a way to fill out the reserves, but when you consider what they gave up on defense with Chandler and Butler, it just looks ugly.
