    Maybe they want to move in/out the young guys who aren't a part of our rotation. We need someone on the bench in case of injury and blowouts but these guys need playing time somewhere to develop.

    i wonder if sampson plans to use some innovative defensive scheme by having donatas guard the opposing point guard, mo williams and have lin guard milsapp. It would be fun to watch like harden on durant.

    I think the coaches recognize that Jones needs to work on his scoring. He needs to develop a go to jump shot or some sort of post move.

    He plays good defense but he's not great at anything else. Donatas has proven he can score and rebound well and this is his reward.

    Jones played like deer in the headlights against his limited minutes in OKC.

    i don't know, but it's cool. This builds consistency and reduces the NBDL stigma, at least as far as the Rockets future rookies are concerned.

    4 of their next 5 games will be against Tulsa. So they will get well acquainted with Lamb.

    In case you haven't noticed, Jones has been sucking it up, making lazy TO pass after lazy TO pass, and generally sleepwalking on the court. Time to give Onotas a shot.
