Sam Smith has said for years that Sheed is known as a great locker room guy and apparently he has a lot of respect for Thibs. Big body, can shoot, veteran savvy, has the respect of the officials (ok that was a joke).
I'm a little interested in how well he can handle Kurt Thomas-esque minutes, but seems like it is worth taking a flier on him if he is in shape. Remember the old man PJ Brown helping the C's win their championship? You can't underestimate the value of experienced bigs.
