Smith is a decent option at C. He just needs to stay healthy…Aminu is super athletic, defends well, and rebounds well. He’ll end up in someone’s rotation..

I forget what injury Okafor had last year. Will he be healthy for the coming season?

I think so. It was a herniated disk in his neck.

thats right…that doesnt sound good though. Could he still approach his level of defensive play and rebounding with that injury…
