MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP)—The Memphis Grizzlies signed free-agent center Hamed Haddadi, who played for the Iranian national team in the Olympics.

The 7-foot-2, 254-pound Haddadi averaged 16.6 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in Beijing.

The 23-year-old Haddadi spent the 2007-08 season playing for Saba Battery BC in the Iranian Super League.
That's actually all there is to it right now. Wow.

Oh god no.

In all seriousness though, seems to have put up solid numbers in the Olympics. Good for him.

This guy is good. He was many classes better than his team mates in the Olympics. If he trains well and understands a new style of game for him he can do well.

He's also VERY foul prone. He's essentially a replica of Darko. They do the same things well - they block shots, rebound and energetic with a half decent offensive game. Question is.. does he have the basketball IQ that Darko doesn't really have?

He will be a force.

Probably better than Oden.
