   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Rakeem Christmas
PF/C, 6’9 250lbs, 25 years old, 2 years of experience

Played only 216 minutes, committing quite a lot of fouls in that time. Christmas doesn’t have a high ceiling, but could be a reasonably solid third string slightly-smallish centre, who can board, block some shots on the interior, run without being hugely athletic, and make some shots around the basket. But if his upside is not that high, and if he is not going to be played anyway, and if he is never going to be able to defend the pe-rimeter adequately, an extra shooting power forward should probably be sought instead. At least that player would be more likely to play.

Player Plan: Two years at the minimum salary remaining, all bar $50,000 unguaranteed, with a team option in the final year. Doesn’t project well in the new NBA and might not be worth keeping considering his age for a prospect.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
