The Pistons made it official and signed him to a multi-year offer. The majority of our fans are pretty excited, based on what material of him is available on youtube. He looks like a big athletic freak who will protect the paint well.

He's projected to be our first big off of the bench, and will provide something we lacked last season (the addition of Drummond won't hurt either).

That's why I provided the youtube. I had never heard of him either before the signing. It is a random signing. Based on the highlite reel, what do you think he can provide to a team that is lacking in size on defense (outside of Drummond).

Every player has a great reel on you tube, doesn't mean he is going to be a good player based on the 5-10 min clip we see..

Looks decent, I like the fact that he looks like an aggressive player, I don't take much away from highlights though, when ever you see the guys best plays of course he looks good, not many people have the time but to get more of an idea of what kind of player he is I'd have to watch at least 3-5 full games to get any sort of idea and still that wouldn't do too much.

Edit: Thanks, a non dick head. I'm looking forward to seeing him play in the NBA. You're right, you can't tell a whole lot from a highlite reel. Based on what's being shown, he looks like he will be a quality defender.

Lol too badd he only has 1:33 min clip, could find a Diop highlight reel longer than that.

Greg Monroe/Andre Dummond/Slava Kravtsov

Detroit is going to be a interesting team this year. Not many teams in the league have this much size down low.

There isn't a lot of footage available for him unfortunately. But he is barely being paid. If he turns out to be a half way decent back up center it will be an incredible move.

I don't know that I agree with that ^. It's extremely possible he just wasn't ready to block the dunk. That was in 2010, he was not ready for the NBA. Mostly everything I've read on him says he's 6'11.

Should be fun hearing people choke on his full name Vyacheslav Kravtsov

But seriously, hes a big body whos good on the defensive end. Its a very low risk signing that could turn out great for them, and if not who cares.

I was always wondering why he never got a shot in the NBA, so now I am happy to see the guy getting his chance
