Thabeet
Detroit Pistons strengthened their training camp roster with addition of 27-year old Tanzanian center Hasheem Thabeet (221-120kg-87, college: Connecticut). He was about to sign at Philadelphia 76ers. The last season Thabeet played at the Thunder. But in 25 games he recorded just 1.1ppg and 1.6rpg. He helped them to win the Northwest Division title.
In 2009 Memphis Grizzlies selected him as second overall pick in NBA draft. The former University of Connecticut staris in his sixth season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements he received USBasket.com All-NCAA D1 2nd Team award and Big East Co-Player of the Year award back in 2009 at his college time.
Thabeet has played previously professionally in other NBA teams (Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers) and D-League (Santa Cruz Warriors and Rio Grande Valley Vipers).
The scouts decsribe him following way: (by Kevin Duffy for NBADraft.net in 2009)
Has a good nose for the ball on the boards Tremendous lateral quickness for a player his size. Can guard smaller players out to the 3-point line Is a bit stronger than he appears.
He puts the ball on the floor way too often instead of going straight up without dribbling. This leads to turnovers and more difficult shots
