Tremaine Townsend

Tremaine Townsend is an athletic 6'9 forward, formerly of Cal State Northridge. He played two years there; both years, he led the Big West Conference in rebounding. In his first and thus far only professional season, Townsend led the Czech Republic league in rebounding, grabbing 10.9 in only 32.5 minutes per game. [For some reason he was known as Tremaine Ford there, and is going by the name Tremaine Ford-Townsend for the purposes of this summer league.] It is easy to see, therefore, why the team that ranked last in the NBA in rebounds by a hundred million miles might value his contributions.

Working to Townsend's advantage, Diamon Simpson was signed by the Warriors last year with much the same skillset. Furthermore, in addition to his rebounding, Townsend has the size and athleticism of an NBA forward. However, he has no real offensive game. Simpson shot 9% from three point range in the Czech Republic last season (3-34), and shot only 58% from the line. He also didn't get there much, partly because he can't dribble, and also because he can't create in the post. Louis Amundson is the obvious upside, but as things stand, Louis Amundson is better.
