I'd rather try our hand at a big with some ability to move the ball and maybe shoot vs the myriad of stiffs we've offered in the past.
It seems Martelli has made a point of recruiting the modern Euro style big man. Oliva, Funk, Longpre, and now this kid all fit that mold. A surplus of those guys can definitely make an offense tough to defend. See: Davidson.
