Interesting move.

Always wondered if/when Yi was going to finally start living up to his hype in the NBA.

He's probably better than Brian Cardinal who they keep giving minutes to for whatever reason.

Well after the Mavs cut him he can come out and mop up the sweat during timeouts.

Not injury prone and doesn't have a history of flagrant fouls so with that being said, he's better than Andrew Bynum.

Might be a low risk high reward type of signing. Lets wait and see what he brings to the team

Starting out with the Texas Legends. Not even sure how healthy the knee is, but time will tell. Can't hurt on a vet min 1-yr deal. But Mavs already have Brandan Wright another former lottery pick backup PF riding the pine...and of course the amazing Janitor

NEVER. Before playing in the NBA, they said he is gonna be better than Yao and that he plays like KG. lol

I remember his first game like it was yesterday. In Orlando on Halloween, he was thought to take over the torch from Yao, that didn't quite work.

I like him learning from Vets and professionals on how to play and work to become better. This might be one of the teams for him to go to.

We almost traded Devin Harris for him on draft day. Ehh, it can't hurt to have a lottery pick who hasa decent skillset. If anything, this might mean insurance in case we trade Odom mid way.
