    I think it'll look something like this...

    PG = Dragic, Lee, (Free Agent ??) (Until Lowry comes back)

    SG = Lee, Kmart, Bud

    SF = Parsons, Morris

    PF = Scola, Patterson

    C = Dalembert, Camby

    Greg Smith is the only other player on our current roster.

    Derek Fisher and Terrence Williams were released earlier today.
    Kyle Lowry is out another 3-4 weeks

    Any talent in the D-League at PG?

    lol. I was considering putting Camby at the PG position to take advantage of his height.

    Kevin McHale will play his starters all 48 minutes and if they can't, he'll tell them to dig down deeper and try harder and play harder.

    Now that the Trade deadline has passed, I expect K-Mart to put up 20+ points a game again.

    Its a 9-man rotation until Lowry returns.

    PG: Dragic, (Lee)
    SG: Martin, Lee
    SF: Parsons, Budinger
    PF: Scola, Patterson
    C: Dalembert, Camby

    My guess, when Lowry comes back, Bud will be the odd man out again. McHale prefers the shorter rotations, and he'll want to tighten it up in preparation for the playoffs.

    i can actually see bud playing more..hes gotten off his slump and has shown he can play some D..if lee is the pg then bud should be the sg for the second group..rockets play well when bud and parsons are on the floor at the same time..

    although im somewhat dissapointed by the twill incident, this opens up time for Marcus Morris. so i'm actually excited for the rest of this season, let's see how we do against the clippers tomorrow.

    66? They need to show Parsons some love, he's been a starter for a while now, at least give him a defensive boost!

    It doesn't free up time for Morris because Williams never got any minutes anyways. I really wish they would give Morris a chance, though.

    I hope Marcus Morris can get some significant playing time with Budinger becoming a full time SG.

    What slump?

    He has been the best shooter on the Rockets team from the perimeter all season long.

    All he has needed was consistent minutes, the problem is that McHale for some strange reason just decided not to play him, his D has been ok (not great by any stretch) but he is a + player on the Rockets in every way.

    Very few teams have a real 10-man rotation when everyone is healthy. Most coaches use 8, some 9, depending on the roster. The 9th and 10th men are usually situational spot minutes players.

    When Lowry comes back, it will be interesting to see whose minutes get cut. One thing about McHale, he doesn't hesitate to bench anyone, including starters.
