    Baynes is as good as gone next season and while we all see his shortcomings, you will be very hard pressed to find a backup center on anybody's roster as serviceable as Baynes. Looking at next years free agent crop the cupboard seems pretty bare for backup centers. Fortunately for us we have a 19 year old kid who's 6'11 and weighs 245 pounds on the bench.... I wonder if we would could get away with using him as a backup center?

    I'd say "no" because there's nothing about him on twitter.

    He could see some time at center, but it would all depend on whether or not the opposing team has a favorable matchup for Henry, rather than a Whiteside, Howard or Lopez, save those matchups for Boban. Henry's best development in this system would be as a PF.

    Lets just sign whoever is playing back-up Center in San Antonio this year.
    Isn't that Stan's plan?

    Don't forget about Leuer as a backup either.

    Just making sure, we are all being sarcastic right?

    Can this thread be tagged as comedy?

    Porzingis plays the five effectively.
    He and Henry are basically the same player right?

    If you think Baynes can't move, Bobo is ten times worse.

    I can't take my eyes off of BoBo when he is running the court. It looks like he has a rock in his shoe.

    Boban is so big, he doesn't have to move. His wingspan is 15 feet. He can touch the rim while standing on the free throw line. He's as wide as the lane itself. He has to tip his head down around the basket to make sure the rim doesn't poke his eye out.

    Boban annually puts the star on the Whitehouse Christmas tree.

    You must have called him to tweet....Bill....because he didn't arrive til today.
    You could have just asked him to send me a Christmas card.
