I know this is kind of late. If you follow me on Twitter, you know my reasons.
I wanted put this up while I was still under the influence (@DeeNLen suggested this).
As expected, (According to my sources) The Rasho Nesterovic deal done:
The veteran centre, who spent two seasons with the Raptors before being traded to Indiana a year ago, has agreed in principle to a one-year deal worth about $1.9 million (all figures US), the so-called biannual exception to the NBA’s salary cap.
I know Rasho isn’t Dwight Howard, but he is a serviceable back up! He is familiar with the team and management, and he brings ‘offence’ and defence to the court. He, IMO, is a much better choice than Patrick O’Bryant. He rebounds more and doesn’t stick outside. He knows where he belongs on this team.
Another good thing is, this is a ONE year deal. In case his age is more then just a number, we won’t be committed to him next season.
Welcome Home, Rasho! (I almost said Roscoe Jenkins!!)
