Not even sure this is a good signing. People are clinging to name recognition at this point I think.

Nene? I guarantee he could still do the same thing Capella does on this Rockets team, it's all Harden.

If hartenstein can play some center for us this year, I love this signing

Still trying to convince myself that I like the Westbrook trade, but it isn’t working

Nene is better than him tbh.
Porzingis&Doncic will be the white and more dominant version of Kobe&Shaq.

Good backup center at this stage of his career.

Agreed. If he can get out there and hold down the fort for 10 minutes a night against backups, he'll be fine. Players don't get that much worse with age, they get more injury prone. If his minutes can be managed to minimize the wear and tear, he'll still be effective.

He is signed to be a back up center who plays sparingly.

Everyone knows this.

Because we need a back up center.

Chandler was courted by plenty of teams for exactly this role. He can provide 10 minutes a game against second units.

10 minutes a game every other game. That's all the Rockets need from him.

Everyone knows he’s a good dude, why does he constantly run towards the most questionable character rosters? Outside of Dallas he’s been on some downright nasty squads in terms of professionalism and fit.

So simple.
So obvious.

So hilariously clueless some of these other comments are. :lol:

Good signing to replace OG Nene. A little less brawn but a little more length.

Fairly certain he's retiring. He talked about it a lot at the end of the season
He wanted to be with his kids in Brazil

Think Lakers fans' are disappointed because he was expected to do way too much. He can give you a good 10 minutes but that's not what he had to do, then he burned out
