There's no harm in the Kings in signing him.
He's just another old man who likes to bang in the paint for them. Probably the replacement for Keon Clark, although probably a POOR MAN"S Keon Clark.
He signed with the Jazz after they lost Jarron Collins to a torn right ACL. I only think that Sactown is trying to get back at the Jazz by signing one of their own players--to get back at getting ripped off at the Keon Clark trade. Massenburg is not bad, but he ain't good either. He has no reliable jumper, and he may not adapt to the run-and-gun style of the Kings (centers are naturally slow movers).
Tony Massenburg should be considered the last priority. It was pretty stupid of the Magoof brothers to just pick him up on the face and say, "You there. You're signed with us, you a-hole." That's rotten stupidity. There is a reason he was a journeyman, and why he was cut by Jerry West after he took over as the Grizzlies GM. He just ain't good. He's 6'9" but don't rebound well, and he's not a differencemaker. It's a wonder how he stayed in the league for so long. It's just UNBELIEVEABLE.
Massenburg has career averages of 19 minutes a game, as well as 6.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. It's no wonder why he failed in the world of the NBA. He can't defend, even if he could play in the paint. He's been in 12 teams throughout his career, and he's 36 years old. Just a lame guy. Just a lame guy.
I didn't even consider him to back-up Shaq last season when he was a FA and when the Lakers were trying to find a suitable PF. Nowadays, I look to guys like Vladimir Stepania for answers.
