Rod Benson

Boom Tho!!!!

For all those of you who follow Rod Benson over at Ball Don't Lie, he is back in North America after a stint over in Europe and is suiting up for the D-League. I am no pro scout but I wonder why this guy hasn't been offered a spot on an NBA roster after putting up 12.1 rebounds and 13.6 points a game during the 07/08 D-League season.

Most teams in the NBA need a guy that just picks up the garbage and does the dirty work down low. A guy who can come off the bench and bring some energy while pulling down some boards and blocking or altering shots. What team doesn't need that.

I wouldn't mind seeing Brian Colangelo of the Raptors take Benson on for a 10-day contract and see what he can do. With O'Neal out with an injury to his knee, Benson could come in and give the Raptors some cheap insurance. That is what the Raptors need, a dude that can grab boards.

The Raptors are ranked ahead of only three teams in team rebounds per game. What can they lose except more games?!
