What are you talking about? Splitter was a foreign big man. Baynes is a foreign big man. Splitter was regarded as the best foreign big man, this guy is said to be the same. Splitter is just now coming into his own. This guy does not look better than Splitter against much, much lesser talent. History would say that he's not going to see significant time on this team coming in halfway into a season, no matter what the armchair GM's will say.
