    So I'm assuming his neck injury is nothing to be concerned with?

    I like it. I’m guessing he will be healthy.

    Allows Tucker to be one of my SF’s more often than he usually plays. Faried our small ball center predominantly.
    I’m expecting Danuel House to be another SF by season’s end.

    How much is he getting paid? We may not be able to afford him if he is asking more than 600k.

    Think I remember this guy hitting on a couple things insider wise. Friend of Donte Draper or whatever?

    Anyway... Yes a healthy Markieff along with bringing back House truly pimps us out.

    Capela/Tucker/Nene if size or big dick is needed
    Tucker/Morris/Faried
    Iman/House
    Harden/Gordon/Green
    Paul
    Rivers

    8 man playoff rotation of
    Capela
    Tucker
    Morris
    Shump
    Harden
    Gordon
    Paul
    Rivers

    with Green as a shooter.

    Is Kieff the good one or the one we drafted?

    They’re both very serviceable rotation players these days

    Both are pretty good role player at this point in their careers, but Kieff in the one who was taken at #13 by the Suns.

    Kieff can function as both a four or a 5 in our system. A way better overall offensive player than Tucker but an inferior defensive player. I think Markieff is a better rebounder as well.


    Thanks,

    Marcus is “good one” you are referring to. Much better shooter and defender. But I’ll take Kieff if he is healthy at this point. We need a serviceable big body at the 4.

    kieff was considered the better one coming out of college. he plays inside more than marcus. But as the league shifted to alot more wing play, marcus settled in well the last few years. Kieff is the one the rockets would have more use for behind PJ instead of marcus with the way this team is built atm

    Kieff is the better one, he use to be Phoenix's best player.

    Yeah the nerve thing is a significant problem especially with how it was reinjured so quickly. He needs to show he can actually play before we use a spot on him.

    Could have use for both and Mook is the healthy one. Let's not be kidding ourselves. But of course would take Kieff.

    And Mook also developed a more physical style with Boston from when he was here.

    with the abundance of perimeter players on the roster already not really much room for marcus, unless he enjoys being on the bench which he doesn't
