This will be an underrated get for Houston. What an awesome get for Hou.

Most underrated defender in the league and should have been an all NBA defender this past season. Excellent open 3 point shooter, excellent cutter, and defenders 1 through 4 fluidly.

Solid 10 player rotation at the moment (Nene and Black will share backup C duties)

Rockets just need a backup PG/4th Guard.

C - Capela, Nene, Black
PF - Anderson, Moute
SF - Ariza, Tucker
SG - Harden, Gordon
PG - Paul

Not sure there would be any minutes for a backup PG. Paul and Harden will be the backup for each other. That's essentially the way it worked with Bev last year.

They have to have someone in case Harden, Paul or Gordon get injured.
Taylor and Brown are not ready.
This will also enable them to rest the top 3 guards more.
Remember how bad Tyler Ennis was?
He was unplayable if the game was competitive.

When he got consistent minutes, in particular with LAC last season, he was really good.

He'll be asked to make open 3's with Houston which he did really well with LAC last year. I think he took a leap in that regard, and him making open 3's is something i'd bet on continuing with Houston given the fact that they have both CP and Harden.

That is a nice roster wow. Imagine if y'all only give up Anderson to get Melo as well. :lol:

I think they'll give Isaiah Taylor a shot to be the point guard who only plays when Harden or Paul miss a game. He was awesome in SL and D'Antoni seemed to be really high on him, already claiming Taylor will likely stay on the active roster, instead of the d league

I like Taylor but I'm sure they will bring in a veteran PG at the minimum just for insurance.

Getting all these great defensive players can help hide Anderson's terrible defense.

Could also mean that the need to replace Anderson isn't as great.

Rockets have more leverage now. Melo wants out. Knicks want to trade him. Rockets don't need him, but will take him if they don't give up much. They can just wait to he is bought out or until next season when he opts out.

I thought he was a good to great defender last year but for some reason he couldn't even bother Joe Johnson in the first round. He scored at will against any clipper including luc

39% on open and 41% on wide open. Mostly behind JJ, CP, and PP, way ahead of Jamal and Glenn Jr. I think he is a solid catch and shoot player let alone his elite and versatile D.

Running out of roster spots. At 14 and I'm sure they want Bobby Brown (I know he's bad) and Troy Williams back. Unless Troy takes a two way deal they need a spot.

The best min pg is probably barbosa anyways and he probably isn't that big of an improvement at this point

He might play in the regular season but knowing D'antoni he'll go with his infamous 7 man rotation in the playoffs again.
