    FOUR years?
    Clearly the Sixers see something in him that they don't see in Caron Butler, Cartier Martin, Jodie Meeks, Kyle Singler, Jonas Jerebko, Tony Mitchell or Gigi Datome.

    The Sixers have publicly acknowledged they have been in tank mode for a couple of years now. I wouldn't exactly call them role model material.

    Maybe we weren't interested in him because our front office knows the guys we have are much better.

    We'll see, I would guess if they give him a 4-year deal they'll give him minutes to show.

    I assume that they have a particular wall at the arena in Grand Rapids with the correct specifications to administer the Leg on Wall test.

    Let's hope so. The roster is currently at 15, so signing him would have forced another cut of a guaranteed contract (ala Gray). Then, the guy cut would turn out to be a stud on some other team....

    I am saddened that you feel this pessimistic. Lots of guys have left the Pistons and continued to be duds.
