Imadogg - "Finally, front office stepping up." You're joking right? Please... say yes.

lyk13 - Relax, he's camp fodder.

Here's the scouting report on Brandon.

Plays like: Nick Van Exel.

Brandon Heath - 2007 6' 2" 6' 3.75" 181 6' 7" 7' 10" 9 32 36 11 11.39 3.28 27 No


Very good PG height and length. Solid jumpshot, even if he is streaky. If he got more consistent 3pt. range and played SG, he'd play a lot like Luther Head, though Heath has considerably more court vision. Surprisingly leaping ability for a PG. Decent lateral. Decent speed. Good 1st and 2nd step when driving but won't always lead straight to the cup for a layup. Can be TO prone at times. NVE-like decision-making... sometimes spectacular passes that are high risk, sometimes turnovers that were low risk passes.

I like the idea of having him invited considering I wanted him out of the draft a few seasons ago. Hopefully playing overseas further refined his PG skills. At the very least he'd be a solid backup PG.

Why would I be joking?

Wormy agrees with me.

He'll be lucky to get even a slight amount of playing time.
