    I.D.I.O.T.

    We really needed a couple of swingmen, and Thabo solves part of the equation.

    In addition to stellar defense, I see him putting up...15-17 minutes/gm...40% from 3.

    They can’t add anybody at this point, as far as I can tell, now that they are in the LT.

    Personally I'd probably wait for him to actually make the roster before predicting how much playing time he'll get and what his stats will be but you do you.

    the 10 guaranteed deals look like this on a depth chart:

    capela-chandler-nene
    tucker
    harden-house
    gordon-green
    Westbrook-rivers

    I believe the rockets will want to hold at least 1 roster spot open for buyout targets later in the season. that leaves 4 spots remaining. the 2 two-way contracts for ponds and mcdowell-white likely means that one of the remaining 4 roster spots is going to Clemons. also with the lack of solid PF options I imagine clark gets one of the last 4 spots too.

    that leaves 2 remaining spots for hartenstein, Bennet, mclemore, Tjones, nick young, Felton, brewer, Thabo, and aflalo. I see this coming down to one spot for a PF and one for a wing.

    I believe Thabo is the best wing of the bunch. the last spot will go to either harty, bennet, or jones. if you believe they want the best stretch 4 it will go to bennet, if you believe they are more concerned with rebounding it will go to Harty.

    maybe, they could also fill all the roster spots and just waive one if need be. there's plenty of candidates for that

    wouldn't be surprised if the ex-laker chandler gets shafted and traded. Really willing to bet one of those bigs either nene or chandler will get shafted and traded by the trade deadline to fully guarantee Hartenstein and clark.
    don't really see clemons making if off of the plays that got set-up by clark and Hartenstein in summer league. Especially after Portland summer league team throttled rocket summer league team late.
    couldn't see green making a team in a training camp that eventually waived nick young!?
