    Awesome news, Upshaw needs work but the things he can do defensively are impressive.

    Looked really out of shape. Clogs the middle. I hope he makes the team.

    If the source is legit, I think it's good news. He's worth taking a chance on, low risk, high reward as they say. Also probably smart to sign him before some other team swoops in and does. He needs work for sure, but he blocked Towns like 3 times, heads were going to start to turn towards him.

    Low risk, high reward, and he has a lot of upside. He was great in limited minutes tonight in SL vs the #1 draft pick. :clap:

    Good deal, sounds like what many of our 2nd rounders got the last few years. Have to work to make the team up to a certain date to get the full guarantee. If he doesn't work out, he's easily released months into the season.

    We have a nice 3 headed monster at center in Hibbert/Black/Upshaw. This might also mean Sacre is on the move :blush:

    Great low risk high reward move. He has the upside to be 1 of the best defenders and rebounders in the league, and this protects every other team from signing him out from under us. If he doesn't work out, his salary is an afterthought when the cap goes up.

    After watching him play, you can tell he has a Ron Artest type of "chippy-ness". Who else noticed that when he was goin up against towns?

    Really good news to hear. He showed flashes of potential in his limited mins tonight. He's a project for sure, much rather develop him than Sacre.
    Really need to ship Sacre and Kelly out at this point.
