    The Rockets wants to win a champion, Morey must learn from GS. GM

    Please develop into a great shooter like the Scouts expected before the Draft.

    Coming into his draft class, I thought this kid was gonna be a stud. Good pickup.

    That highlight video in Clutch's link reminds me of Ariza's offensive game. His drives off the pass and him finding space around the three point line look a lot like Trevor to me for some reason.

    Only a matter of time when he gets replaced by Vander Blue.

    Reminds me of Dillion Brooks or Dillion Brooks reminds me of R.J. Hunter.

    Hunter is at 37% from 3 in G-League while Brooks is 36% from 3 in the NBA.

    I like how Hunter uses the backboard. I feel his foundation needs some work on his shooting for distance.
    Either his foot placement or squaring the hips toward the target.

    I do like that he is launching ten 3’s/gm with the Vipers. Good option for one of our 2-way contracts.

    I understand he is the son of a coach. One of the things that I like about Jon Diebler (son of a coach).
    Usually brings good technique or fundamentals.

    His game reminds me of Joe Ingles so if we get a Joe Ingles-lite that's not bad for an end of the roster player.

    WTF are you talking about? The Rockets are blowing up the roster and going full tank mode ex:letting the great downtown Bobby Brown go.

    All of our bigs except Clint are injured and Morey goes and signs another dleague guard. Last night it was extremely obvious we couldn't run any proper P&Rs when Clint was sitting. Good thing the Suns defense isn't a thing and Ryno showed up.

    But if this is to replace Webber, I guess almost anyone is an upgrade.

    He has a far better handle and is far better passer than Ariza. But....needs work defensively. Slow-Footed. But good offensive tools.

    We need youth on the perimeter. I like the signing.
