The Charlotte Bobcats are sending French big man Alexis Ajinca to the Maine Red Claws of the NBA's development league, to work on a game that has gone dormant of late.

Ajinca, who last month received a $1.47 million guarantee for next season, was inactive for the Bobcats' last three games and either inactive or active but did not play in 10 of the team's 16 games.

This is the second D-league stint for Ajinca; he played in Sioux Falls, S.D., during part of the second half of last season as a rookie. Bobcats assistant coach LaSalle Thompson, a former NBA center, will accompany Ajinca to Maine to monitor his progress.

Even if he is an utter failure in the NBA, he's still not a wasted pick. But most people realized he would take 2-3 years to develop into the frame required to play in the NBA.

So how often does a late NBA pick stick in the league more than 3 years?
