Center Hilton Armstrong has signed a free-agent contract with the Washington Wizards.The deal, announced Tuesday, gives the Wizards an experienced 6-foot-11 backup center known as a shot-blocking defensive specialist.
Another athletic long 6-11 big man who doesn’t play defense. Nice.
Hilton Armstrong is a weak basketball player. A poor defender and rebounder and a poor offensive player who makes far too many unforced turnovers.
This was a poor signing for Washington. They already have two young big men who don’t know how to play. They need to surround those guys with intelligent hard nosed defensive minded veterans. Not Hilton Armstrong.
