   2017 NBA Manifesto

Salah Mejri
C, 7’1, 245lbs, 31 years old, 2 years of experience

A capable third string centre who tries to block everything, goes to the glass, and will foul anybody if needs be. Not a stiff offensively, but not talented, limited to the post alone save for occasional pick-and-roll play and not even a reliable catch-and-finisher, never mind creator. Still, it’s a role, and he’s quite good in it.

Player Plan: Unguaranteed minimum salary contract for 2017/18. Is worthy of a minimum salary; then again, he would ideally be upgraded upon. Resources however are better spent on the guard spots, so Mejri should return.

Picking Mejri would be a big risk. He is a third old school string centre openly unhappy about being a third string centre, and he normally barely plays, if even he plays at all. But when he does play, he produces, as evidenced by his 13 rebounds and 5 blocks in 22 minutes in the last game. Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle openly said that Mejri played that much in that game partly because of foul troubles for Nerlens Noel and Dwight Powell ahead of him, but also because Mejri historically matches up well against DeMarcus Cousins. Which is true, and which his performance proved. But Mejri matches up well against any post-up player. He should match up quite well against Karl-Anthony Towns tonight, too. So he should play. But he might not. And for as low as the cost is, bear this in mind.
