... but I think there's no denying over the last 2-3 seasons how efficient he's become and how effectively he plays. He's become a good 3-point shooting big. He passes well for a center. He has good hands, rarely turns it over. Not the most versatile defender, but honestly, out of most guys his size in the NBA, he's probably in the top half in terms of defensive versatility.
If you asked me to rank these guys by who I'd rather have 2-3 years from now, he'd be bottom 3... but for now, I gotta give credit to what he brings to the floor, especially on offense. I thought at first about putting Sabonis above him... but Sabonis isn't as good a shooter and is more turnover-prone. Tough call there, but I give the edge to Vuc right today.

so I see that as a win.
Similar to last season when we got Markieff after the Clippers raced us to trade for Marcus Sr. If you compare their stats there's not that much difference but there's a big difference in the salaries.
