Bucks sign Walker; Greer Getting Respect

  • The Bucks signed vetern PF/C Samaki Walker, who last had a cup of coffee with the Pacers in 05/06. His last significant contributions came for the Lakers' 01/02 championship team, when he averaged 6.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg and 1.3 bpg in 24 mpg. He was a pretty serviceable big in his day, and at 31 he shouldn't be totally washed up, but let's remember he didn't play at all last season. At this point he looks like a (luke)warm body for camp, battling Angelo Reyes and Michael Ruffin for a chance to be on the end of the bench. My guess is Ruffin wins that battle, purely because he's actually played in the NBA semi-recently.
  • TrueHoop talks a bit about the Lynn Greer signing today, linking to the very cool Ball in Europe which predicts Greer will be better than Jasikevicius next year.
