While I have no illusions of grandeur for this young man. He puts himself in good rebound positions. He plays decent defense. I have been impressed with his bruiser style of play as of late. The major knock on him is he actually shoots free throws worse than biz, which in itself is a feat.
Do you think he is a long term bench option or a stop gap till Mullens comes back? I would love to see a full 35 minute game from him and see his rebounding numbers.

It's Adrien, not Aidrian, but I agree with your assessment of him. I hope we do decide to keep him as a long term bench option instead of a stop gap. I would go out on the limb and venture to say that he might be our best frontcourt player right now, and maybe when Mullens return that'll change, but he's been solid for us. I wish we gave him more minutes, about 20-25 per game.
Lol damn dude Aidrian
3 hours of sleep will do that to someone. Forgive my spelling errors.
Cho must have liked something that he saw in Adrien, because he guaranteed his contract for the rest of the season. Jeff will play on the summer league team, most likely get an invite to training camp, and has a decent shot at securing one of the last spots on the bench (especially if the team doesn't pick up Warrick's option and lets Mullens walk).
He had a great game last night. Nailed open jumper, mixed it up in inside and boarded. Seems like something he should do but since all our other bigs have problems doing that I'm pretty pleased with the what...200k he'll be making for the rest of the year?
We should be looking for untapped talent in the D league with extra roster spots.

Hardworking guys without an ego are really what you want in deep bench players, which is why I don't mind him sticking around in the future on a minimum deal. Ideally the frontcourt is improved to where he's the 4th/5th big on the roster, but he's good in the locker room and will push guys in practice.
