Alize Johnson it is. Doesn't have great size but that boy can rebound. Had a 20/20 game last year. Gotta have some talent to do that. Love that he made a Rodman post on Twitter when he found out he's coming here..... Probably the best forward available right now. I dig it. Lots of versatility on this team. 

I was hoping for an Ibaka type to do the frontcourt things that Vucevic can't do and this guy is 6'7".  The signing can't hurt, I guess.

Apparently Tony Bradley is their "Ibaka type."  I don't know him.  Any good, if someone who is familiar with him sees this?

I don't know much outside of what the numbers tell me 

 

Per 36 minutes Ibaka averaged 17 points and 10 rebounds while Bradley averaged 17/12.

 

Bradley is also just 24 and still could have some more upside..... He had 1 game last year where he played more than 30 minutes and all he did was score 18 points on 8 of 8 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds. Also had a 7 for 7 game against the Bulls. 

 

Looks to be a solid backup big. I'd still prefer Alize or even DeRozan at the 4 if Williams misses time.

Lots of good video on YouTube about him.  Everything he shoots is under the basket thus the shooting %.  He looks like just what you said.

Looks like the DeRozan to PF thing might happen while Williams is out.

 

A quick "DeMar DeRozan Power Forward" search just told me that DeRozan, and the team defense, thrived with DD at the 4. Teams with two offensive BIGS are few and far between these days, and the modern 4 is more like DeRozan or Lebron. 

I'd start Ball-Caruso-Lavine-DeRozan-Vuc

They did not pay him the 8.25M owed to him today, instead they put that into an escrow account.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Considering Simmons hasn't reported to training camp, I would think the team is doing the logical thing. He will eventually get the money, probably minus some fines.

Denzel signed with CLE for cheap non-guaranteed money.  I always liked the guy, hope he gets some playing time and can continue his career.  In the USA, of course.  Oh well. if not he's already made 5 times what I did in my working life.  Good luck, kid.

He wasn't an athlete, fer sure.  Best passer on the team, nice hands on defense, shot the three a little bit.  Overall no loss, you're right.  But I liked him for no reason at all.

Denzel embodies the typical Garpax pick. "Safe" pick from a big named program, very little upside and little athleticism. Good riddance to Denzel. He was absolute trash.

He did his research and realized he would lose a lot of money.

I'm excited to put too much stock in preseason basketball.

Nice to see anyway, since bad football isn't my thing.  More laffs from Stacey already than a week of Stone and Benetti.

Preseason/Cavs or not, No Bulls team the last 4 years would put up this many points in a game. 36 assists which is more than any game last year. This is a different team.

I don’t think there is any question it’ll be fun to watch, they just need to win games.

Yeah, that was fun. 

 

I wish all of Matt Thomas, Alize, and Green were taller. 

 

I've grown really fond of Thomas as a Reddick type but the Bulls are just so loaded at the guard position that I'm not sure he's gonna find the minutes. Dude can flat out shoot the 3 ball....To steal a football term, Alize is just a ballhawk. 11 rebounds today in 17 minutes. He may struggle to defend so bigger guys though, though in today's game there aren't too too many BIGS.
