I’m not sure Dwight’s a good defender in this league. Just reputation at this point. He can put up a double double but empty. I rather go Noah, will accept that lesser role and has passing ability. Even Speights is intriguing because he can shoot so Channing Frye esque

Hes.....still pretty good.

He was ok briefly with the Wizards last year. He had 25/17 his last real game.

Hes not just a bad basketball player.

Dwight has been on the following teams the last 7 years:

Orlando
Lakers
Houston
Atlanta
Charlotte
Washington
Memphis

He's working on an 8th. If he's not a bad basketball player he must be flat out insane.

He is a bad basketball player when you take intangibles into account.

I just don't understand why they have to go with the "big name". Sign Kenneth Faried, he's hungry and proved to be useful in a Capela-like role. Let him eat rebounds, putbacks, and drop off passes from Bron and call it a day. Probably better defender than Dwight at this point too.


To the people asking others if they have watched Dwight play the past 2-3 years...there is no need. He has been putting up good numbers, right? But missed the playoffs 3 years in a row with 3 different teams (Scratch that, barely made the playoffs with the Hawks). Yes the Wizards were heavily injured...but so was Dwight, he only played 9 games. That's ****ing concerning considering we are trying to find a REPLACEMENT for an already injured big man.


He averaged 16.6ppg and 12.5rpg for the Hornets, all star numbers..yet they finished 36-46 in the east. Kemba, Batum, Lamb, Marv Williams etc. were all healthy, they had the exact same record the year before without Dwight...he literally had 0 impact even with the great numbers.

When you take how well you can play basketball into account he isnt. We just have a lot of incredibly dramatic fans....not that Dwight isnt dramatic himself.

Hes been on one bad team he actually suited up for. His teams were in the playoffs 11 years in a row with him playing a big role for all of them. You can only be so bad at basketball and be productive on good teams for a decade+.

All the intangibles in the world wont get most bigs a starting spot over Dwight.

Hes a legit starting big....Im sure nobody thinks hes still a near MVP.

I'm sorry bro, honestly have you WATCHED him at all during these past 5-6 years? It's painfully obvious to anybody that has watched to notice that he has a negative impact on the game.


Dwight was a BEAST during his Magic days...played decent on Houston the first year as well, but he has been just flat out bad the last couple of years.


How the hell is it possible that he averaged 16.6ppg and 12.5rpb, had Kemba Walker on the team, Nic Batum, and GOOD role players...yet failed to make the playoffs in the weak east? I'm sorry, I don't want that center starting for my team.


Don't get me started with his negative attitude that can drain an entire locker room. Big no, I don't understand how Pelinka of all people isn't aware of Dwight the cancer.

You know what tho, I should probably stop trashing the guy. Chances are, he will be our new starting center seeing how things are shaping up.



Let's look at the positive...maybe he does gain much needed motivation playing with LeBron and AD. Maybe he stops being a child and accepts that he is 34 and accepts his role as a glass cleaner/rebounding center who can take a drop pass from Bron and finish consistently, play defense consistently...


You gotta understand, we've had an unmotivated Dwight in a Lakers uniform once before. We know just how much he can be a negative for a team looking to win.
