The Intangible Signings 2012

GMs and coaches love to use words like intangibles, veteran presence, great locker room presence

But are these signings taking up valuable roster spots, just because these intangible players are picked up cheap.

I want to give danny ainge credit, he did a great with most of his signings this summer

Here are the three players that i believe fall into that intangible category

Jason Collins

Chris Wilcox

Keyon Dooling

Before you get defensive, let's look at each player

Jason Collins, probably the biggest intangible signing of the summer

Jason is not a scorer, does not rebound well, does not block shots

Jason does play some defense, he's 7 ft tall, comes cheap and eats up minutes

So KG gets a break, a major downgrade from Stiemsma

And Jason will take minutes from Melo, even with Melo's inexperience

Melo will give Celts more production (Rebs and shot blocking) then Collins

Chris Wilcox has low basketball IQ, limited offensive, below average rebounder

But comes cheap and rondo will make him look good in transition

Wilcox will takes minutes from Sully. Overall Wilcox is a cheap big but Ainge only gave him 1 yr deal

Lastly Dooling

Keyon is a hustler and streak shooter, not a good playermaker

While I like his harassing defensive play, faster guards blow by him with ease

And he gets caught on every screen. Overall not a bad signing because it was cheap,

But I would have had Keyon come into trainIng camp to compete with jamar smith and dionte christmas

To earn a roster spot, Rondo does not need Keyon's veteran presence

Overall I think these three signings were dannys worst this summer
