7'7" actually it would be something seeing a guy that tall in the NBL.

I've been hoping for a few weeks the Wildcats would take a look at him for the ac spot. Would have been especially great if Neilsen was still an assistant. With his height he would be a huge force in the league and would be a great attraction alongside some of the other names. I think the new next star rule makes it even more tempting for both tacko and NBL teams (I'm assuming undrafted guys can be signed the same way 2nd rounders can?)

These type of guys aren't effective in the modern pro game for a reason.

He's making the Celtics team.

We don't have a quick up and down league, he’ll be good.

NBL doesn't have an illegal defense rule, he can camp middle of the paint and turn away everything with his 8'2 wingspan.

He is tall, yes. But that appears to be the extent of his skillset. Looks extremely limited. Would need to be spoonfed on offense. If made to pull a move on a player he'd be too slow and unco to make it happen. Defensively he'd be a deterrent and people would be interested in seeing him play, but outside of that I don't think I'd want him for the import spot. He'd be a back up center that gives a team an interesting look but you wouldn't want to have to rely on him.

76ers might send A 7'4 guy.

I'm glad I'm not inbounding the ball with him standing in front of me, he'd be just as intriguing to watch as JP Tokoto.

We still want a couple of 'Attraction' players in the league to intrigue the casual fan and if it's not your team with that attraction then I'm for it and would enjoy seeing him come to town

The Perth Wildcats are speaking to Fall about a 2 year deal worth $400,000

Hell of a headache I would imagine for transport etc.. being that tall. How's the legroom on a flight from Perth to the Eastern states these days? And how many hotels would have beds to suit?

Trevor Gleeson just squashed that notion on Overtime.

Perth were also getting Shawn Long at one stage, I would disregard Perth Wilbur's comments.
