The C's just announced, officially, the signing of 7 foot center Semih Erden. The signing was held up by buyout issues with his Turkish team. He'll make somewhere around $500,000… but I'm not sure how much of it is guaranteed, but it's a drop in the bucket for the C's as they look for a serviceable guy taller than 6'9".
He'll be in uniform today in Orlando. You can catch it on NBA TV is you're home or you can pay $15 to watch it online.
Oh, the picture?
Well… I can't ever hear the name "Semih" without thinking of "Semi" from Coming to America. I mean… can't you see Semih hilariously spending some of Paul Pierce's money as Paul tries to just live a regular life?
Oh Semih… you put a hot tub in the middle of the practice facility? You so crazy.
On a related note… I think I'm suffering from heat stroke. Damn its hot outside.
