    6'10. Looks to be a perfect "backup C "for us. Would be deadly in PnR and PnPOP with that shooting stroke of his. Can put it on the floor too. Goes to block shots in the paint with his length. Not a great athlete but that's ok. He NEEDS to be a rocket!!!

    I remember that short documentary where Royce White literally laughs when Harkless is picked ahead of him in the draft. He couldn't believe someone wasted a pick on this less-talented scrub. :rolleyes:

    Give me Markieff Morris. Not very good on perimeter D but he's tough as nails and can shoot.

    I get the desire for a big .... but if that guy cant switch everything and shoot from range , he doesn't fit what the Rockets want to do.

    If they are gonna double down on small ball .... who's the best combo forward available ?

    I find it kinda ironic , this franchise has had some of the best big men in the history of the league going back to their early days - Big E , Moses Malone , Ralph & Hakeem , OT , Yao , Dwert ..... and now they are trying to make big's completely irrelevant.

    Thabo did an excellent job defending the paint against 7 footers yesterday, but I feel we need a 6'8", 6'9" bigger Thabo, tough as nails son of a bitch, who can hit a 3 if wide open.

    I hoping for Harkless and Marvin Williams. They would be amazing for us.

    We have the next generation big man template: 6’9” and under, 7ft plus wingspan weight of 230 or less. Run biggin to death. There is a reason the big man is dead in the nba and we are analytically MITing it.

    It’s crazy how good we are now already but the ability to add a couple decent players in the buyout market will be nice. Even if they are just depth/insurance.

    No. The third leg is the charm. Never forget. Youre welcome for the safe for work edition.

    Whoever is 6'9", can switch unto smaller players while playing high level D, and can shoot. Let's sign him up! I don't know who that guy is? We will have to use Chandler and Harty at some point. However, I understand our strategy. You shoot 2s at 45% and we shoot 3s at 35%. We made 10 more 3s than the Lakers, game over!

    If we're looking for a center .... sure , but I don't think he fits the profile of switching everything and shooting from deep.


    Danny Green .... long versatile defender that can shoot 42% from 3 ....

    Anything like that out there ?
