Assuming he gets a minimum contract, he could be a solid fit as a 5th big that gets a decent share of DNP-CDs, but provides 6 fouls against teams with brutish front lines like Indy, Chicago, whichever team gets Pekovic/Howard, etc.

Except that Russians don't acknowledge the existence of gays.

And from what I understand, he provides great locker room leadership as well. When Washington acquired him from Boston last year, Boston REALLY did not want to give him up for that very reason.

Yeah, they have Reggie Evans on the bench as a big right now and that's it.  Not to mention the guy has already played for the Nets.  I mean, he's a better use of an 11th or 12th spot than most guys -- he'd basically be like what Juwan Howard was with the Heat this year.
