The Springfield Armor has until Wednesday to cut five players and set its roster for Friday's opening game vs. the Maine Red Claws. There's been little information about how things are going at the Armor training camp, but the D-League's Sam Farber thinks Chris Taft could be big this season.
In his "Most Likely..." preseason feature, Farber thinks Taft is the "Most Likely to Have a Heart of Glass" and "Most Likely to Reject You", that is the D-League player with best chance to clean the glass and block shots.
"Nobody cleans up the glass like Chris Taft," writes Farber. "Standing a meager 6-foot-10 and weighing in at a paltry 261 pounds, it’s not hard to see why Taft has made a career of dominating the boards."
