Jeff Withey
C, 7’0, 231lbs, 27 years old, 4 years of experience

Even if his offensive skill has not expanded beyond the occasional post finish and the very occasional baseline jump shot, Withey has improved his rebounding rate in each of his four years in the league, and he does a decent job of being a cheap Gobert-lite on the interior defence. He absolutely cannot guard the perimeter and recover like Gobert can, nor screen-and-roll or post-up, but he does a limited role pretty well.

Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary contract. Has now spent four years in the league, all on minimum salaries. Would be worthy of year five at the same price.
