look for him to be more of an locker room precents than on the court precents. Juwan is washed up.
Good sign,but that doesn't bode well for Ostertag's comeback, haha
will provide not only a good locker room presence with experience but also another body who can come in score and help out if needed.
power forward is still a question mark. im not sure if him or Pendergrapg will get more minutes. yeah he does bring a good presence in the locker room.
Pendergraph had surgery, I don't know how long he'll be out, but Howard should get minutes early in the season for sure.
