Ehh he wont play much. He's got allot of guys to fight for time. Thing is there usually only 9 guys who get real time on a team i think. 5 starters and 4 bench players. So that means he would have to beat out Jamison or hill probably and we did allot to kept hill and to get Jamison. The only reason he is even on this team is cuz we had to match salaries. Trust me if mitch could have only gotten Howard without other players back I bet he would have taken it.

Maybe he'll get some minutes early on while Dwight is out. From there, let's see if he can contribute something to the team.

Jennings didn't show up earlier when his name was announced in the draft.

Clark isn't going to produce on the offensive end. He's nothing like Lamar...almost the opposite, actually. He may have been productive on that end of the floor back in Louisville (really, in just his last season), but it never did translate to the pros, and you can tell it won't. Right now, he's a PF that doesn't have enough weight on him to get buckets down low, and he doesn't have the skillset to play the three.

I hope LA doesn't try to stick him behind Dwight in the rotation. He's definitely not a center. Phoenix and Orlando have avoided playing him at center as much as possible since he was drafted in 2008 or 2009 (whenever it was), and his primary position has been the four, anyway.

Earl Clark is our Josh McRoberts. Not the same player, of course, but he's going to fill a similar role: super garbage time PF.

the odds are against any guy with little experience but how many people thought j hill would still be on this team? lets all find a middle ground between optimism and delusion. you never know, look at jeremy lin, he is a prime example of what can happen when people make assumptions, mind you he still has some proving to do.
i will say they were lucky to get someone with some potential there, better than duhon but still that guy might even do well on this team, i wouldnt bet on it but its not impossible. i would say, he is pretty likely to be buried at the bottom of the bench this season, especially at the 4, but some people are probably thinking further down the line. it would be pretty funny if he ended up the best player of that trade in a few years, as unlikely as that may be lol
Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

well those positions have gotten pretty blurred in todays game, especially with all these tweeners. being 6'10 will pigeon hole you on certain teams, though sf may be his best shot on this roster. you could be right though, i havent seen very much of his game.

oh btw, anyone know if/when they are planning to introduce these 3 guys?

Didn't bother reading because you continue to post with your stupid capitals on every damn word.

Seriously, just stop doing it. It's hard to read, and it makes you sound like a five year old in my head when I read it.
