Worthwhile 7 footers normally aren't available for camp auditions, so I think it's likely Alibi is a bust, but he did seem like a project with potential when he was drafted.

Throw as much variability as you can at Davis, I say.

Frontcourt guys shouldn't be there to make the team, just to make sure he goes from A to Z as soon as possible.

I like T Will but there has to be a reason he can't stay on a roster. He can't be worse than Aminu, though.

I liked Alabi coming out of FSU.

He's so long.

I wanted alabi when he was coming out of FSU. Definitely excited to see if Monty can make a player out of him.

Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery
