"serviceable big man" goes to a big you sign for a small amount to be at the end of the rotation. we need something more than that. JJ Hickson has been floated around there for the longest time that i'd like people to be specific in what they see in the guy that makes him attractive. if he has no shot, he can't play next to Duncan/Splitter/Blair because he can't post up either.
