Max and Cheikh

From A. Sherrod Blakely's sidebar today:

One of the reasons Curry has sprinkled his starters among three different five-man units, is to see how certain combinations work together. One tandem Curry might take a closer look at as training camp progresses is 7-foot-1 center Cheikh Samb and 6-7 forward Jason Maxiell. Both are young, long-armed players with a nice touch offensively.

That'd be fun to watch, as would Samb and Amir Johnson. I'm not sure you could use that tandem for extended minutes against an opposing team's starting frontcourt, but they'd pretty much shut down the paint as long as they're in the game.

My guess is that Samb spends most of the year in the D-League yet again, but after watching him in the summer league in Vegas, I'm curious to see what he can do in the preseason (which, holy crap, starts Sunday!)
