    Nothing like a 25 man roster.

    We could use the dude's defense.

    An alright defender under Tom Thibodeau. Not a shooter/scorer. Not sure what happened in NY/OKC last year. Disappeared.

    I don't think he's guaranteed a roster spot here though.

    Always liked his game. A very useful player if he can earn the playing time.

    Lin/Beverley/Brooks/Canaan
    Harden/Garcia/Williams/Young
    Parsons/Casspi/Brewer
    Jones/Motiejunas/Smith/Covington
    Howard/Asik/Camby/Henriquez

    Now we are at 19 I believe?

    Lin
    Harden
    Parsons
    Howard
    Asik
    Beverley
    Brewer
    Garcia
    Williams
    Casspi
    Jones
    Motiejunas
    Brooks
    Smith
    Camby

    That's 15. Canaan will probably be sent to the D-League. Who else is there?

    I was always a fan of his game - his odd shooting style though will make it tough if the Rockets are trying to play a true inside out type game he will have a hard time fitting in since he isnt a good outside shooter.

    From what I do remember though is that he is a good slasher, mid range shooter and a tough defender. Considering what the Rockets currently have defensively in the backcourt he may be a huge asset then.

    The also added benefit - the will make Harden better -- having to go up against Brewer every practice will help his game on both floors.

    training camp will be very interesting though thats for sure

    Lin/Bev/Brooks/Canaan
    Harden/Williams/Brewer
    Parsons/Garcia/Casspi
    Jones/Montiejunas/Covington
    Howard/Asik/Camby/Smith

    and I am sure I am missing some more as well

    That really tall kid and/or Covington would be my guess, unless a trade is imminent.

    Right now:
    Lin / Beverley / Brooks / Canaan
    Harden / Garcia / Williams
    Parsons / Casspi / Brewer
    Terrence Jones / Motiejunas
    Dwight Howard / Asik / Greg Smith

    He still counts towards the 15 man roster.

    Ha. ;)

    I'm guessing (hoping) just a training camp body on a non-guaranteed deal.
    Not a huge fan of Brewer, though he'll certainly do for training camp.

    Good player. I hope he regains his form from 2-3 years ago when he was actually useful. Otherwise, end-of-the-bench defense that only gets minutes when we're playing a team with too much wing scoring to stick our already signed perimeter guys on them.
