Baxter, a quiet, unassuming type who is typically one of the last to leave practice, averaged 4.8 points in 12.4 minutes per game last season. The 6-foot-8-inch, 260-pound forward filled in admirably when coach Bill Cartwright benched Marcus Fizer at the start of last season.
His strong play here could entice management to put Fizer in a familiar place—the trading block. Fizer, a solid offensive force off the bench, is rehabilitating from knee surgery.
We wont know until this season if rush is goin to be better then fizer or george. I just hope he does become better. From what i saw at the SPL in long beach, he might be!!! Then again he was playing against other scrubs!!!
