He's been playing in China so he should be in shape. Good move since Stat and JJ have injury issues, sucks that it cost Billy his job. DG is a solid defender, won't give you many points other than some putbacks and dunks.
Anyways I feel sorry for Walker because I still think he is under rated and I think if he never got hurt this year he would of eventually had steady minutes during Fields' struggles.
Unfortunatly Skywalker needs to find a new home, watch out Miami doesn't get him, nice guy off the bench with athleticism and a 3 point shot that can get hot and torched the Heat in one game, no pun intended.
We need a big man and if the coaching staff does not trust the sluggish Josh Harrelson or the foul prone Jerome Jordan(who i think is better than people think) than getting Gadzuric is a nice pick up.
Gadzuric was a starter for the Bucks I believe and is known for his shot blocking so when Tyson comes out we have a guy with some ability to block shots and rebound and just do that. Big body with long arms and plays aggressive on defense, fine by me.

Looks like Coach Woody is rolling up his sleeves and getting ready for the playoffs. Good move but sorry to see Walker go b4 the season ended.
IMO there is one particular advantage of bringing Gadzuric:
Its just so disappointing, this does most likely mean Jeffries is hurt worse then we know. One injury after another, its really too bad. I dont know if we'll be able to have a roster like this years again. I feel like if we had Lin, a healthy Amare, a healthy Jeffries we might have been able to do something this year. Where the f*cks our luck at?
is the hottie Gadzooks' girlie? niiiiiiiice.
I've been a fan of Gadzurik since his UCLA days, when he pretty much dominated the NCAA.
here's some background:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
he played pretty well for the Bucks, I remember him swatting some Knicks shots and bounding.
Bill Walker was not getting playing time, and he did nothing in the short stint he got recently.
with JR Smith on the team, there's absolutely no place for him, especially if he's not 100%.
if Jefferies is hurt worse than thought, this is a good move, but why o why is Jerome Jordan not getting run?
just don't understand, unless he blows in practice, because garbage time is the only time we see him.
we already scored with an NBA player from China doing good in the NBA,
perhaps our scouts see something Knicks can use in the playoffs?
it never hurts to have another big in this league.
This is exactly what worries me... once all the players mesh we would be one the leagues top teams, with a very deep bench.Its just so disappointing, this does most likely mean Jeffries is hurt worse then we know. One injury after another, its really too bad. I dont know if we'll be able to have a roster like this years again.

Im still hopefull for a deep playoff run, I have a feeling all the players will come through and go hard in the post season.
Its hard for me to see a better roster next season.
Dan Gadzuric is a great post player that plays smart and above the rim. He is only 34 years old and is an excellent defender and is one of the best defensive big men IMO in the past 5 years. He can rebound like Shaq and defend like Howard. Don't know why more people aren't excited.
