Von Wafer just signed a one year contract with Boston. Can anyone give their opinion on him? I've never seen him play.

he's like the old Jim Jackson that used to play for every team in the NBA. He likes to shoot the ball alot. Now when I say a lot I mean a lot. Doesn't no how to pass the ball basically. Oh did I mention that he gets into foul trouble pretty easy. We had him second half of the season on a ten day contract during injury games

Helluva towel-waver, but he's no Matt Carroll...

You guys are negative, but he's not a bad player. Very talented, just needs to learn to take better shots and not to be such a black hole. He's not good enough to be a black hole, but when he plays within the system and takes good shots, he can knock down jumpers, including treys, at a high clip, and has some moves off the dribble allowing him to get to the basket. He's not a bad defender, though he's certainly not going to be the Celtic's defensive stopper. He's got the size needed to play shooting guard, at 6-5.

I mentioned he's a ball hog, but I think his biggest problem is that he took off the entire year last year from basketball. Don't think it was his plan, but couldn't get a team. If he's still sharp, he's perfectly capable of coming off the bench and being a scoring option for the second team, both as a spot up shooter and sometimes creating his own shot.
