    Although Caboclo was probably disappointed after getting waived by the Rockets, it definitely didn’t seem to affect him when he started to play with the RGV Vipers. In fact, those struggles he battled in those initial three years seemed to help Caboclo become a more focused player on both ends of the court. In fact, the 6’9 forward might stand as the most well-rounded player in the G League as he’s averaging 16 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 3 blocks on 51% from the field and 42% from beyond the arc on 5.6 attempts per game.

    Raise your hand if you would rather have Bruno out there than Chriss.

    Rockets just need to create an open roster spot.

    Looking forward to moving out the detritus of Chriss & The Ghost of Melo for useable players.

    Bruno is better than Chriss, but that's not saying too much. I'm not opposed to giving Bruno a 10 day contract, but I don't think he is ready to contribute much, however he can shoot the ball well , so it's possible he could be somewhat useful.

    Chriss-can't play
    Hartenstein-mediocre maybe
    Knight-can't play/hurt
    Nene-can barely play/old
    Ennis-Always hurt

    Just ridiculous. Morey has to find a way to make a serious move. Good luck to him lol. A real poo poo platter with mediocre draft picks to entice someone to eat that.

    I agree. Hartenstein is a 10th-12th man.

    Caboclo has been tearing up the G league. Maybe he is ready for a shot at the bigs.

    What? You don't think this is good writing?

    "Another way that Caboclo’s quickness is helpful is a forward that can either cut to the paint or make on-ball drives. As a roll man, Caboclo is a great target as a bigger target with soft hands that can go up for alley-oop slams. Meanwhile, he shows some upside as a driver as he shows some nice moves for a player his size."

    Give the guy another shot with the Rockets, if we have room for him. What do we have to lose?

    Anyone not raising his hand should be checked for shoulder arthritis.

    I'd be happy dumping everyone on that list. Maybe keep Nene as a serviceable backup to the backup C.

    But Chriss, holy sh!t is that guy bad. Is he really the same dude who averaged nearly 10 ppg for Phoenix as a rookie, or did the Suns prank us by sending his lookalike less-talented, dumber brother instead?

    Eniis isn't just hurt. He can't play any defense even when he is healthy. That was the primary reason why he was signed.
