I understand Morris portion but not Sacre....yes he's not very good but still a big body in case Howard is in foul trouble along with the wannabe backup C Clark/Jamison.

Is this creating a 10 day roster spot for Jordan?

Assigning guys to the D-League doesn't take them off our roster sadly. I'd be happier if the headline was "Morris quits basketball".

so if D12 gets in foul trouble, we're really going to depend on Clark/Antwan/MWP to play center??

Yes, because that's what we did anyway.

We already have a roster spot. And if we didn't, they still are on our roster while in the DL, so sending them down wouldn't create a roster spot.

I'm aware of that. I meant more of an exchange of players on the bench as in adding Jordan to a 10 day and sending two contract players down to get some time on the court. Doubt it's gonna happen. I assume MDA wants fast and small.

The D-League season ends soon doesn't it? I think this is just a chance for them to get some playing time before that season runs out. We can hold down the fort without those two, although I really do love their passion.
