    While some guys shy away from wanting to be a center.....PJ embraces it. Why? T H I C C.

    "I love being the five," Tucker said. "Any time I go to five, I love that. I tell people now, 'put that in my bio – center.' I'm a center. I love being a center. I get to make plays and get involved in a lot of action when I'm in at the center, so I enjoy playing center."

    Great News, Melo at PF.

    Melo still needs to improve his defense, shot down Blake Griffin as an example.

    Random thought, is a resigned Capela now expendable if we are able to get a major star in return?

    Tucker is essentially untradeable for this Rockets team. He is vital in so many areas, including this as the small ball center. Morey is right to not include him in any Butler trades.

    Of course Tucker loves playing center just like his father Chuck Hayes.

    Tucker the type of dude that likes to be challanged. Glad him in the Butler deal is a non starter

    He's a much better player than Chuck. It's not close either

    Typical clutchfans boxscore chaser "I don't see all the hype in PJ. Yes he had good season but Butler's a star & having star starpower is what works when I play 2K"

    I think Capela is odd man out and his value only comes down from this point. (His “foot” may not be so sore after all) Something is brewing and this maybe it. (Capela and Qi for Butler works on trade machine) maybe through in pick(s) and a 3rd team to make it make more sense.

    Dude it’s meant to be a compliment to tucker since Hayes was such a staple of small centers. And besides, Chuck was loved as a rocket.
