Haddadi?

The Suns waived Hamed Haddadi, who will earn just $1.2 million next season.

There are probably a lot of reasons why he hasn't gotten to play much more than 12 minutes per game... but his Per-36 stats are insane:

Again, I know full well he won't perform to this level if he were given, say, 30 minutes.

But at $1.2 million, a guy who averaged 1.2 blocks in just 13 minutes... you could do worse... right?

Is it possible to have a lineup that consists of a bunch of mediocre centers (Leonard, Withey, Haddadi) who could all rotate in and out as needed, freeing up cap space for an Evans or similar non-center? Or is that an invitation for disaster?
