I don't know why the heck I'm even writing about this, but Pops Mensah-Bonsu got waived by the Houston Rockets a couple days ago. I know that he's really a slightly taller, slightly more athletic version of Renaldo Balkman, who just got a contract extension, but Pops is an electrifying player that has the speed to run with Lawson on the break. He's more coordinated and skilled than Petro, and although he's smaller than Petro, I'd rather have Pops on, say, Bynum than Petro. Pops would help us on the boards and on the defensive end. Come to think of it, he's more like Chris Andersen than Renaldo Balkman.
