I'd guess a 28 year old 300 lb big man can do plenty.
This is a good move. They'll probably basically split the center minutes between Z and Shaq which is fine by both men I'm sure.
This is a situation where Shaq can be used very sparingly until the playoffs.
This is a great move. It is only for one year, so you're not hamstrung from pursuing the top FAs next season which has been the plan all along.
