Chris Wilcox – Welcome to Detroit

According to ESPN.com Chris Wilcox agreed to a two-year deal worth $ 6 mil with the Detroit Pistons. If you are reading this blog frequently, I don’t have to tell you that we were rooting for Wilcox all along since the rumors spread that Wilcox, Nesterovic, ‘Big Baby’ Davis and Not-So-Big Ben Wallace where on the Pistons wishlist.

To quote myself: “I really like what Wilcox brings to the table. He is an energy guy that can dunk and block big time, a guy that gets the crowd into the game and is always ready to give you 110%. I’m not sure how good a help defender he is, but with his athletic ability and presence he will definitely alter some shots. He gives you 9 points and 5 boards per 20 minutes which isn’t too good, but if you look at the seasons he got about 30 minutes per game he delivered about 14 points and 8 rebounds – acceptable.” At age 26 there is plenty to like about the big fella – just ask the Raptors:

Do you need some more proof? Yeah? Here you go:

If you need somebody to bring energy off the bench, go for putbacks on offense and block shots on the other end – this is your guy.
