The Memphis Grizzlies are hoping to be able to sign Iranian center Hamed Ehadadi next week, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Ehadadi, who is 23 years old and 7-2, last played for Saba Battery of the Iran Super League. He'll also play for the Iran national team in the Olympics.

Ehadadi recently collected 19 points and 16 rebounds in summer league action at Utah.

Lols.

Hamed is young so he'll have time to develop. A pretty good pickup if they can work and polish him.

Looks pretty mobile and has a nice soft touch. Lacks toughness though.

Will have trouble with big centers.

THis is soething tha tamazes me,,,,,

THis guy was not drafted at all in thhis year when he declared, nobody had interest, plays in a VERY POOR league and in a very POOR national team and yet, people wants to see him in th nba and some even say he is gooing to bee good and he can be a starter for Memphis.


The same people that say that Marc gasol ( Spanish league Mvp, WOrld Champions, regular in a great National team etc etc) is going to be a bust and a career reserve?

I never said that, I love Marc Gasol. I wish the Magic could have either him or Hadadi. But that's not the case. :(

Well Reezy you may find a very good surprise next year when Fran Vazquez is Cleared to sign with You, He can be used as Center or Power Foward so you will be able to move Turk to the 2 and Lewis to the 3 where he plays better, Maybe even let Howard go back to Power Foward.

People is going to be Astounded about how much you will improve with his adition.

Yep, I really hope he comes over here soon. We NEED him. I don't know if it's true, but I heard that the original reason why he didn't come over here immediately was that his gf didn't want him to. I really, really hope that wasn't true.

No, he is kind of a Shy guy and was too young and he comes from a very very little town like 5000 inhabitants or something like that, he didnt know english well and he became afraid he wasnt ready enough.

He signed for a Bigger city team In Girona and improved his game, then he went to even bigger Barcelona and his game specially in defense has flourished, he is the Anti Gasol, all Defense and Hard Nose.

He is now Mentally ready and has been learning english for 4 years now.

When he arrives there he will be nba Ready and Ready to Contribute, instead of becoming Nikoloz Thiskisvilli or Maciej Lampe Part II after a too early Jump.

i don't think he'll be there for a offensive purpose he'll be a defensive Center just to alter shots ,block shots and grab some boards.
