But a one year big with size and height is at worst a practice player who they won't have.

There are a lot of kids in a lot of different situations at varying levels of basketball. Some kids have high IQ and solid fundamentals but relegated to lesser situations but could "at worst" fill a DI roster. We've had kids like this in the past. We've also had kids like this in the past who ended up playing regular minutes. Sometimes even favor players that got a scholarship. I'd take a 7 footer who can put his arms up in practice for a year and if hits the fan as it has so many times in recent years a guy who could give us 3 minutes in a desperate spot - and you know there will be some desperate situations this season. I'd take:

1) a guy with height with other limitations e.g. Curtis Johnson
2) a really athletic guy with height who ran the floor well with other limitations.
3) a guy with really good hands and sticks to his role but other limitations. guys like this have killed us many times. May not out-athlete anyone but will box out and screen where appropriate and won't get pushed around.


Not disagreeing with your premise necessarily but again, wouldn’t a player transferring for his final year want to go somewhere where he is more or less guaranteed real playing time?


And a chance at winning.
