Fortson may be able to rebound, but he can't score for s*it is fat as a dumpling and plays defense like a pussy cat. Fizer averaged 13ppg last year and a few rebounds. Fizer is a way better player than Fortson, so if they want to trade him they could get a much better player than Dumplingman.:yes:
Both are about 6'8" and 260 lbs.
Neither block shots.
Neither play good defense.
Fortson @ 5 mil
Fizer @ 3 mil
Fortson had an injury 2 seasons ago but played 77 games last season.
Personally I think the Fizer post scoring advantage is overstated.
Given past performance and what I want for a backup 4 on the Bull, I prefer Fortson.
Best case scenario: Fizer gets a heart transplant and plays more inside and then I wouldn't want Fortson or someone similar but so far there has been no reason to believe he'll change. Maybe Baxter will provide the incentive.
Hoiberg was a throw in to make the cap work. After mid July he won't be necessary as the Bull will be able to absorb the salary difference when new cap #'s are used.
