Just Who is Von Wafer?

Just as I was musing over all the guys that got away, Danny makes a move and signs Von Wafer.   Since Wafer isn't exactly a household name, here is a little info about him.

Wafer is 6'5" tall and 209 lbs.  He has played 4 years in the NBA for the Lakers, Clippers, Portland, Denver and Houston (07-08 was split between Portland and Denver).  Over those 4 seasons he averaged 6.2 ppg, 1.3 rpg,  and 0.8 apg in 13 minutes per game.  His best season was the 08-09 season in Houston where he averaged 9.7 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists in 19 minutes per game.  He shot 41% from the field and 34% from beyond the arc. 

He signed a contract with the Greek Olympiacos Piraeus team in August of 2009.  In Euroleague play he averaged 7.7 points (on 50% shooting), 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists.  Midway through the season he received a buyout from the Greek team amid reports that they were happy to be rid of his attitude.  He signed a contract with the Grizzlies but failed his physical with the team and so that deal was off.   He then signed a contract with his former club, the Houston Rockets.   However, he also failed the physical with Houston and that contract was voided as well.   I think I'll wait until after the physical to get excited about this signing.
