    A true center and the Lawson boys upfront, and with the other guys returning should be a pretty good team. Hopefully the coaching will get better, because with that talent there is no room for excuses.

    Memphis has always needed a big man coach. Hope they can develop this guys game because his frame alone gives him NBA potential.
