   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Walter Tavares
C, 7’3, 260lbs, 25 years old, 2 years of experience

In his 48 games with the Raptors 905 of the D-League, Tavares showed himself to being one of the better players in the league, a dominant shot blocker and good rebounder who is improving as a reasonably capable and efficient finisher around the basket. Tavares is limited for skill and fouls a lot, but the skill is not hugely important if he can just be a 7’3 shot-blocker, and the fouls do not matter much as a third stringer. If Cleveland is serious about his development and in making more moves like this in the short term, then Tavares was a good signing and should be kept until at least his guarantee date to see if he can contribute going forward.

Player Plan: An out-of-the-blue signing who nevertheless is a decent direction to go in. Two years at the minimum salary remaining, with neither guaranteed. Ideally would be upgraded upon, but better value for a roster spot than yet another veteran who does not move the needle at all.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. 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.
