    Nice pick up btw, good multi spot defender and he suddenly started to shoot well last season, would be interesting to know if he changed something in his form or he just worked his ass off.

    Very good pickup.

    Guy is a versatile defender. Love these kind of players because they allow you to switch everything on the pick and shut the perimeter down.

    Here he is guarding Kwahi and LA...

    what scenario would we use him in? when would he be playing over ariza or tucker? I guess all 3 could be on the floor at once with paul or harden at point

    You would think we could get anyone right now to join! Ow the joys of being almost a contender, because though I like Mbah and Tarik, I rather would've gone for the likes of Speights. Still solid signing.

    In the context of us acquiring Melo, it gives us significant wing depth considering our team would be one of the oldest in the league. It allows guys like Carmelo to have nights off, and even Ariza or Tucker as well. Keeps our guys legs fresh throughout the year.

    Rockets trying to go from most points scored to least points allowed in one off-season.

    Speights is an awful defensive player.

    yessss i wanted Luc for a while. Every signing we made this year has prioritized defense/rebounding. I love it.

    Clutchfans is damn strange. You guys love this pick up (I understand for the minimum) but had mixed feelings on the PJ Tucker signing?

    Luc will be a bench player, but for the Clippers, while he was starting at the SF, and good defensively, everybody on earth was saying how garbage the Clippers were at the SF position.

    what makes you guys love Luc but kinda hate Tucker?

    Rockets snatching up all these free agents while Cavs ain't doing sh!t. Lebron is not content I'm guessing.

    Don't be surprised to see lineups featuring Tucker, Ariza, and Mbah a Moute at the same time and a ton of switching. Love this move for Rockets

    Nice defensive combo forward, I'd consider him and Tucker a little redundant but I'm all for more defensive pieces, especially considering Ariza/Tuckers ages it's nice to have a 3rd defensive forward for depth.

    This. It helps you keep Ariza and Tucker fresh and gives you so many options for defending the death line up. Our bench is super solid. One of the best in the league.
