    I'll honestly be disappointed if they don't win the Summer League

    Now this is a fun summer league squad; maybe I can pretend last year didn't happen and sack up again for this year.

    When you are sending you second best contributor on offense in the second half of the last season to the summer league and he is a vet,

    that alone tells you how the team value the quality of our current roaster.

    Are you kidding me, Beasley? And can we just cut Dekker and Morey admit that he's the biggest draft mistake since Royce White!

    I'd say he wanted to go to prove himself further to the Rockets and other teams

    Makes sense to send that many people when you have a new coach. Gives MDA a chance to start teaching.

    Should be fun.

    If Beasley has to play, then why not Capela too? Capela really needs the reps in new system if the expectation is for him to start.

    This team is way better than last year with Dekker, Nick J, Capela not playing

    skipping out on Summer League this year, probably will go back next year

    I wonder if Beasley on SL team is purely upper managements way of trying to keep his mind on basketball and away from off the court things lol. I really doubt he plays extended minutes. If he does play extended minutes.. Dear god will he put on a show.

    Why are you guys always so self-righteous ? Anything on the team are so surprising, I really do not understand what you guys are thinking logically

    WTF he needs to prove for?

    That a VET player whose UNDER CONTRACT FOR THE COMING SEASON also being the second best offensive option last season in the team that may not be even in the team's future plan?

    I'm rooting for McDaniels to have a good summer and show some touch from 3pt range. Would change the trajectory of his career and make his a very useful player.

    Let's see what Dekker's got. I've always been pessimistic but he hasn't had a fair shot and I hope he's been doing nothing but preparing for summer league and training camp since the season ended.

    Beasley I don't get, unless he's trying to get a head start on understanding the offense.

    Tbh I'm surprised hes playing as well but I mean if you look at the big picture he was out of the league just last year. I'm sure he has his own reasons on why hes playing in the SL this year as do the Rockets. You say he's under contract for this coming season, however its for literally pennies without any guarantees after that. Your scolding this like its only a bad thing but there's plenty of +'s that can probably come out from this.

    He was not sitting at home last year and smoking pots while waiting for the calls from the Rockets, he finished the CBA season (being the MVP, while it means nothing comparing to NBA level of course), and then joined the Rockets.

    So at least to some extend, he is not out of shape and need more practice or games to get back to form.

    He played well overall in those games for the Rox, its safe to say that unless some major surprise, at this point, he should remain in the roster the coming season and expected to be a solid bench scoring option for this team.

    So again, WTF is the point to send him there? He does not need more games to get more chance to get injured.

    Instead, you want to slap him on the face and tell him that : even though you played well last season, you are still a scrub, we do not trust you enough, so go play some summer games with the rooks and some other scrubs?
