I'd much rather use the 15th roster spot on a guy like him than some young D-league guy who will never get minutes and has no leadership skills or intangibles to offer.
UD is a beast. Every team with a superstar needs a guy like him. He has those little tricks of the trade that can help you win a ball game.
Remember Zaza standing over Russ and dogging him? yea, that aint happening with a guy like UD. MF Kanter was right there, didn't shove, didn't get in between, just casually waited until Zaza moved to go help Russ up. It was pathetic
