Withey tried to reinvent himself as a stretch five in the little NBA time he managed this year. A three-point rate that had never before been above .012 shot way up to .625, which is striking even in a 39-minute sample size. Being a decent-enough NBA centre for four years previously, it follows that Withey still could be, especially with this shiny new tool. This year however was a write-off; he played only those 39 minutes.

Even if his offensive skill has not expanded beyond the occasional post finish and the very occasional baseline jump shot, Withey has improved his rebounding rate in each of his four years in the league, and he does a decent job of being a cheap Gobert-lite on the interior defence. He absolutely cannot guard the perimeter and recover like Gobert can, nor screen-and-roll or post-up, but he does a limited role pretty well.
Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary contract. Has now spent four years in the league, all on minimum salaries. Would be worthy of year five at the same price.

[...] If you include Jeff Withey - the capable 7 footer who would be a lynchpin in a lesser program, yet who barely gets off the bench for the Jayhawks - then Kansas are 11 deep.
