Hakim Warrick - Cut by the Magic without playing a game for them, Warrick recently worked out for Sichuan in China, but was not picked up.

I've said it so many times that it's becoming kind of repetitive, yet it bears no less true - Phoenix really, really, really, really need rebounding help. Amongst their big men, the only average calibre rebounder is Robin Lopez, and even he's only been average for one season. He was a poor rebounder in both his rookie year and his college career. Other than him, Channing Frye is poor at it, Hakim Warrick is flat out bad at it, and Hedo Turkoglu is bloody awful. And yet that's all of the Suns main big man rotation right there. They're going to rebounding whether they know it yet or not, and this advantages Jones more than Siler.

Unguaranteed or partially guaranteed final seasons are becoming quite the trend in the NBA, and they are quickly replacing team options. In fact, there are only 11 team options in the entire league, belonging to Chase Budinger, Jermaine Taylor, Andrew Bynum, Sam Young, Andres Nocioni, Hakim Warrick, Goran Dragic, Pooh Jeter, Francisco Garcia, Solomon Alabi and C.J. Miles. In contrast, there are so many partially or fully unguaranteed contracts in future years that I can't be bothered to go through and list them all. And considering the length of this post, and all the things I could be bothered to do, that should signify something.

The Suns second rounder from last month should have a good chance to make the team, even with the addition of Hakim Warrick. Incidentally, even though Hakim is one of the most accurate like-for-like replacements for Amare Stoudemire that this league has, 4 years and $18 million is about 2 years and $12 million too much. For all his faults, Amare was the considerably better defensive player and rebounder. And that doesn't even include his offense, which was about 65 million times better. It's not a bad signing, but it's not a good price.
