    He could be our poor man's Korver. Always good to have a couple of scrappy, smart, hustling, one specific skill set type players and him shooting the 3 so well fits our style.

    Ditto! I checked his twitter today and he hasn't posted at all. He was pretty consistently keeping up with is last season. I think it's just purely health at this point, but man he would be ideal!

    6'6 Justin Anderson is tearing up the GLeague. Just put up 48 points. Needs a call up!

    https://www.slamonline.com/nba/nets-release-10-day-signee-justin-anderson/

    3-D wing with 6'11 wingspan, whopping 38" max vert.

    He is also T H I C C, another linebacker for the Rockets. Kid plays with an edge too, especially on defense - very disruptive.

    Morey has 5 spots on this roster (2 open and 3 unplayable) that need to be filled.

    Are Morey and the Rockets really interested in any of these players or is it all simple speculation?
    Insiders please!

    To be fair, there's only been like 5 players bought out so far. Anyone that we do sign, we'd at least hope could compete to be in the rotation. Anyone between Bender, Bolden, and Johnson you could see cracking the rotation?

    I'm not counting Williams and MKG cause it seems like they knew where they were going to end up before hitting the market.

    I'd say mayybe Bender but he's been ehhh thus far in his career. I'd maybe take him over Hartenstein.

    Rockets crazy pace need bodies to keep the players fresh to gang rebound and switch everything while still be able to shoot 3ball and attack rim.

    Right now Rockets are essentially only 10 man roster with 2 open spots and 3 unplayable guys (Clemons, Tyson, Harty). And of the 10, Thabo provides nothing on offense.

    Would sign Bender, Broekhoff, Johnson and Anderson right now, even if only on 10 day contracts.

    Dump Tyson, Harty and Clemons now so they can sign with another team.

    We need the bodies and ASB is perfect time to incorporate new players to revolutionary new system

    That still leaves one open roster spot plus Thabo if Harkless and/or Spellman are bought out.

    Y'all too impatient. Morey and team are doing their due diligence, I'm sure. It's only the start of the break after tonight.

    Morey needs to do his due diligence sooner.

    Why would Aussie forward Ryan Broekhoff be available? I know Dallas has made some moves recently, adding to their roster, but Broekhoff looked to be having a breakout season before fracturing his fibula, which sounds worse than it was, from what I’ve read. I haven’t gone through the entire thread, so maybe I missed it, but it seems odd that Dallas would let him go. Salary cap? Looks like he would be a good pickup

    Not sure if i remember well but i think Codman had this guy in his signature or talked about him last season at some point like a possible sweetener in a deal, maybe the Rockets kinda like the guy. Not to bring some hope up D-rock, just saying lol ;)

    No action from Morey. What is he doing if he's not trading the right guy for the team?

    Dropped him when they signed MKG.

    Broekhoff seems to have no physical problems since returning from broken leg.

    Thanks for that, was churning my brain trying to recall who brought up Anderson first!

    Not that delusional as all that, just trying to add another set of eyes and create discussion.

    Love how he moves to both create separation and maximize passing angles.

    Smart.
