With news breaking over the weekend that Marcus Camby would sign with the Houston Rockets, rather than the Chicago Bulls, it is time to wonder what exactly the front office’s plan is going forward. Actually, we’ve been wondering that for a while now, but with Camby off the market, let’s just say there’s not a lot left.
Cole Aldrich is probably the most appealing option, if only because of his relative youth. He’s not really good or anything, but maybe he could benefit from some study at Thibodeau University. He’s not any worse than Nazr Mohammed, more than likely.
Joel Pryzbilla, anyone? Dejuan Blair? Jason Collins is intriguing, I guess, but that probably has more to do with the fact that I just want him to get a job somewhere. Or maybe — gulp — Tyrus Thomas?
Long story short: As I understood it, the supposed rationale for waiving Malcolm Thomas — even though we all know it’s about money — was to free up a roster spot to sign another big man, even though that in and of itself is predicated on the notion that carrying 14 players would cost too much money. So…that seems to be going well and all, but the market is basically a wasteland. I’d just like to know where we’re going from here.
