    They are really going 1000% all in on the small ball. The only true big left is the ghost of Tyson Chandler.

    Wow. Would’ve much rather seen Clemons go instead.

    Can’t wait to see iHart do some damage with a team that will actually give him minutes.

    That sucks. I wasn't always high on him, but he showed flashes. He deserved more playing time, that's for sure.

    this is pretty telling to their commitment to small ball and MDA's chances of returning next season.

    if they weren't sure about their style or MDA I think they would've kept Harty just in case.

    I think it’s just doubling down (again) on small ball.

    Tyson would’ve never been cut strictly for locker room presence and god forbid MDA loses a guard on the roster.

    Lmao people thought he was Clints replacement and that we were hiding him this whole time. Not having a center is so ****ing stupid.

    Needed to give this kid a legit shot,... probably going to end up trying to trade for him in the future (a la Covington)

    Morey’s revolving door of assets. They have zero patience for development. Then they will throw away draft picks in the future to get player x,y, and z back.

    To be fair, the Rockets weren't going to play him, so the outrage is silly.

    well theres still plenty of people that refuse to believe the rockets are 100% all in on small ball, even though the entire organization has flat out said it and committed to it. They still have their well "I could see them giving a few minutes to IHart" posts

    It isn't going anywhere anytime soon

    its dumb not to have a center on the roster at all. you may need a big strictly to try and get a rebound or take up space on a defensive play at the end of a game. not having a big in the game cost the spurs a title against the heat.
