04:58 PM ET 12.06 | Mike Prada of Bullets Forever recently hypothesized that Jan Vesely's poor play is more a symptom of a bad fit than a symptom of Vesely being a bad player. I can't say I totally disagree, though it is sometimes hard to watch Jan and think he is anything more than a goof who mistakenly wandered onto the court during an NBA game, but wasn't removed by security because he's tall and can rub his belly and pat his head at the same time. Vesely seems lost and has received embarrassing DNPs in both of the Wizards two wins. And it seems like Jan needs a place to hang his hat. "Tentative" is the best word to describe his game right now. I can't say I recall Jan making an aggressive move on offense or defending confidently very often so far in his brief NBA career. He doesn't appear to be engaged and he seems tolerant of his poor play; rarely does he show more than a simple shrug of discontent after a call doesn't go his way.
