    Great signing by Daryl! I'm shaking my head that we got Austin, Tyson, and now Thabo for the vet minimum. Yes, two of the three are getting up there in age, but they are the kind of depth a championship contender needs. I'm getting more and more excited about this up-coming season. Now, if only Silver would step in front of a bus.

    Thabo sucked when he was in his prime. Now that he's washed, I can't imagine him contributing in any meaningful way other than eating up some minutes.

    I.d.i.o.t

    The Rockets just need a guy who can gaurd the best player on the other team and hit threes occasionally. This guy is going to be a perfect complimentary player to Brodie and Beard!

    Not the worse signing we could've made. Rather have some washed up vets at the end of the bench than some young guy that MDA doesn't trust enough to play.

    Coach will play them then not forgive them as they develop. Remember, Clark had some positive momentum at the beginning of the season then we never saw him again. House got playing time, too. (Wasn’t around long enough to get on coach’s bad side till deep in the playoffs). Hartenstein is a head scratcher because he plays the role of what we need but never sees the court. He will play younger players but not develop them. This is MDA biggest shortcoming because if he stuck though some growing pains the rotation wouldn’t be so short and players being played out by the season’s end. This is a better option then washed vets that are never going to be more than they are, they only worse as they age —> same missed assignments but with no hope of improvement because their body can’t compete at league level anymore vs the ability with a learning curve.

    I really like this move. Gives us good depth. I feel like he’ll give us something similar to what Luc Mbah a Moute did a couple seasons ago.

    I'd really like this signing if it weren't for the fact that MDA only plays 7 or 8 players with Nene & Chandler taking up the 8th spot. It's a meaningless signing.
