Roster Evaluation: Joel Pryzbilla
Joel is a quality NBA center who needs to stay in Portland if this team is to be successful in the future. He is a top rebounder, shot blocker and defender for his position, and his work ethic is unparalleled. He has made great strides in both his free-throw shooting and his quickness, and doesn't show any signs of slowing improvement. He is a talented athlete who has the ability to function within an offense that doesn't require him to do anything more than be a competent passer and work a good pick and roll. The bottom line is that I can not say a bad thing about this guy (other than the fact that he has a past history of nagging injuries but has shown tremendous resiliency) and he needs to stay in Portland.
