    Don’t hold your breath. He won’t be signed until the last minute when the tax hit is at its minimum.

    Come on Guys, Our Clutchfans loyalists thinks House as the answer. Most of our issues now can be solved by having a healthy Clint Capela. I do think we need to sign another big as Nene is not a reliable back up and Faried is way too undersized. We will struggle against teams like OKC because of their length. House was a good player that did his role very well while he was playing on the Rockets. He was a good fit at the SF position. He brings the athleticism, energy for sure but lets not think he is an answer to all our problems. If he is that good, other teams would have been there to trade for him. I believe he will be signed to our team before the playoffs eligible deadline. He is looking out for his financial future and many of these players don't get many opportunities to be in that position. So, we cant blame him and Rockets are trying to lock him up long term as they know he will fit in perfect. Its just the business side of the NBA. I think, meanwhile, Morey is looking at the buyout market to see if we can find anyone that can fit in with our team. Most likely we will be getting Markieff Morris and he will be better than what we have now at that position. I sure hope we can sign another back up Center with size (Robin Lopez, Dedmon, O'Quinn if they gets a buyout).

    We still pulled off epic chokes with House in the lineup.

    Agreed on missing House. 48% from 3, ability to drive and finish, good height and reach and can grab boards.

    Why do you people bring up Capela as an excuse for not bringing House up? Yes Caepla is important, but with or without him the team needs a versatile SF like House. You people need to maximize you people's odds for winning and this means using all the talent available to you people.

    Hope the shutdown was worth it as the team loses its seeding.

    No kidding - sending him to the G-league might have cost this team a legitimate shot at the chip.

    He was terrible tonight. Poor hof’s and has had multiple 0 for whatever games. He still looks like he belongs in the g-league at times. Not good for him

    House shat the bed tonight. I sure hope the glare of the playoff spotlight doesn't scare him.

    House is starting to look like a rookie the past few games. I am getting afraid that except for defense we might not be able to count on him for much in the playoffs.

    Look at the bright side, DAntoni usually goes to a 6-7 man rotation in the playoffs. So no need to worry if we will be able to count on him.

    House is legitimately more cobsistsnt than everyone on the team except CP3, Harden, and Capela.


    House got one good look tonight. Literally one. The other 3 shots were making something out of broken sets.

    I felt he was solid defensively despite a couple imperfect drive defenses. He should’ve gotten minutes over Rivers and Gordon.

    Rivers turned down several good looks. House would’ve loved those.

    House took deep and hard threes, OKC has long defenders, makes sense he would not be as effective but this showed the rookie. He might not be ready to contribute in the play-offs.

    First time he's ever been to this dance. If he's shown anything, it's that he'll learn and adapt quickly. He will be fine for his role. You can't want a guy for 3 years at the minimum and wonder why he has off nights lol doesn't make sense guys.
