Ryan Luther 6'9 225 avg 12pts 10rebs a game. He only played in 10 games last year due to a foot injury, but was their leading scorer before he went out with injury missing the rest of the season.

“I think I have a good relationship with Coach [Sean] Miller,” Luther told 247Sports. “He came out and saw me and on the visit I got to know him better and the staff. Hanging with the players, I thought they were great guys. I got a good feel for the guys and I enjoyed being with them. I got along with them. They said [Miller] really wants me.”

    He could be Ryan Anderson 2.0. What do you guys think after watching his highlights?

    According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Luther’s injury last season involved the third metatarsal in his right foot injured during practice. He also missed 12 games in 2016-17 with a stress fracture in the second metatarsal of his right foot. Here's more on Luther

    Hopefully his foot is completely healed up, so he doesn't miss a game for us next year.

    Great news. Much needed. We are a contender! Adding 1 of Williams or Brown now would be a grand slam. Both would be the ball game.

    I don’t know if Luther will be able to bring the energy and rebounding of Anderson but his game is a lot more versatile. Outside shooting is a big concern and he should help with that. He seems to roll to the open spot very well which will be nice to see. Players like Akot and Barcello will be looking for him.
