RealGM reports

The Los Angeles Clippers today waived forward Mark Madsen.Madsen was acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves on July 22nd along with Sebastian Telfair and Craig Smith in exchange for Quentin Richardson.

The Clippers’ roster currently stands at 12 players.

NBA Player?

Is Mark Madsen an NBA player at this point in his career?

  • A poor defender
  • A poor rebounder — career rebound rate of 12.4%
  • A very poor offensive player — a garbage man who can’t finish around the rim … true shooting percentage of 48% for his career which is awful, especially for a big man like Madsen.
  • Good energy and good locker room guy

I think he’s a borderline NBA player at this point.

Talent wise, he isn’t an NBA caliber player, but he’s a good practice player to have at the end of your bench. Someone who keeps the season enjoyable for others, and pushes them hard in practice because of his work ethic and professionalism.
