Hickson is stuck behind Cousins in Sacramento this year. Not exactly having a banner year.

No clue. Just wish Tracy had at least a year or two under Gottfried, would've been a monster.

Because Tracy is an undersized, below average athletic center. You guys really don't know a lot about basketball (especially NBA).

Horner at least has the perimeter skills (along with the size) to play the PF spot in the NBA. I mean...he's always going to be on the bench, because he has the skills and size to be an NBA bench player.

but you didn't tell me anything i didn't know. i still don't understand how horner is able to make an nba bench and tracy isn't.

Tracy smith also was a not so good defender (to put it mildly). You gotta play defense to play in the NBA.

Horner was not that bad. He wasn't a great shooter, but he's a pretty good shooter for his size and position (PF). There aren't too many Dirk Nowitski's out there. So if you have a PF that can go out there and knock down and open jumpshot, that's pretty big. Horner is also a decent ball handler....for a Power Forward.

He's not going to wow you with his post moves or be able to defend Carlos Boozer on for 40 minutes...but he's a solid guy to come in and give you 5-10 minutes a game...if that. Other than that, he's a solid practice player.

Once you get past the first 8 guys on the lineup, you're just trying to fill positions in the NBA. You want a guy that can come in and get a couple rebounds, get some garbage buckets, play a little D, and hit the open jumpshot. Horner can do all of those. That's why he's in the NBA right now.

He was cut from the Kings recently ... way to say fuck you Kings. He was taking it to the rim at will last night. When they backed off, he was draining jump shots. Incredible night.

Would have been an awesome pickup for the Bobcats. Oh well

the clippers couldn't stop that pick and roll all night. his only mistake all night was missing 2 critical free throws in the final minute.

good thing he got out of Sacramento. I was worried about him, but it just appears that the Kings were letting their money guy play (Cousins).
