Looks like Dale won’t make it back after all.
“The Minnesota Timberwolves placed veteran center Theo Ratliff on waivers Thursday night and have agreed to buy out the remainder of his $11.6 million contract.
If Ratliff clears waivers in the next 48 hours-which is almost a given with his salary-he will sign with the Pistons for the prorated amount of the veteran’s minimum ($1.3 million).
Ratliff, 34, was drafted by the Pistons in 1995. He has only played 12 games the last two years, but he is healthy now.” Via The Detroit News
I haven’t followed Ratliff in a couple of years, but I aways liked him when he was with the Pistons. He’s had his ups and downs, but he’s got a sold game and can rebound and block shots like nobody’s business. A true center that may not have the bulk that Davis does, but if he’s healthy he’s a nice insurance policy for Detroit. A definite upgrade in my eyes to Brezec, who hustled, but didn’t fit well in Detroit’s system.
Thanks to Sonia and Team Need4Sheed for making sure we are always in the know even before I can post it.
OT: Please take a second and VOTE for Detroit’s Children’s Hospital a click goes a long way for Sickle Cell. Let’s do this, Detroit’s a bit behind Houston and voting ends tomorrow.
