re: Patrick Young signs 2 year deal


Just checked out his highlights. I really like his energy. He keeps working hard and he may wind up being more than just a role player off of the bench.

Yep, but if he is just a role player off the bench I would be happy with that

Undrafted guy contributing in any form is a plus for us

Awesome, well deserved. I wonder if this means anything for Withey. I know last year we carried Smith/Steimsma/Ajinca/Withey, but IIRC, Ajinca was signed after Steimsma got hurt. Also, we didn't have a Center of Asik's caliber, so a Center-by-committee made sense.

I don't think you can read anything immediate into it. First, he's an energy/hustle big, something we no longer had on the roster with Jason Smith gone. So he just fills one of the slots in the Backup Center by Committee. Also, next season we may have to choose between Withey and Ajinca if Ajinca has played himself beyond a minimum contract, it'd be nice to have a new 5th big already in place if that happens.
