    I think tucker has injury, he gives no contribution for any points. Those opponents can double team harden and westbrooks to make their shooting low accuracy. I think we should sign him again. Suppose the power forward position starter should able to get 10 points at least to get a pass.

    No, Tucker just sucks offensively, while being a very good defender. On the current roster, no matter what the false narrative on this board states, Faried would be the third best defensive player on the roster only behind Capella and Tucker. He just wants a much deserved apology and will come back. I think firing MDA would be just the apology he requires.

    If only Dantoni hadn't burned bridges with Faried, he might be playing for a vet min with us.

    Now Dantoni is burning bridges with Hartenstein, wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't want back after his contract ends.

    Faried's energy would be nice right now.

    Especially with Capela and Tyson so useless in 2nd half of last few games.

    he can help harden during double team and able to get 20pts plus 10 plus rebounds. I really dont know why MDA doesn't use him in playoffs ?

    Also he can't be much worse than House on defense

    Would be much better on offense/boards for sure.

    One thing Faried does not lack, confidence.

    House used to be decent on defense.....he totally has lost the ability (or desire) to stick with his man. He has regressed to the point of demotion back to the minors (at a minimum). Hard to watch him brick time and again wiiiidddee open 3’s. I could handle watching this team lose with the energy and flair that the Manimal brought. Just happy that the Lakers chose Javale over him or it would have been another reunion gone south event the other night. Both him and Rivers brought credibility and wins to our team last year.

    Faried's defense wasn't great, and you can't expect a coaching staff to, like, try to improve its players deficiencies or anything, right? When you buy a car and something doesn't work quite right, you throw it out and wait to buy another one. And you borrow everyone else's car in the meantime.

    I doubt Faried will want to come back to this team, on a vet min salary, after how MDA treated him last season.

    Yea Faried saved our season last year & was never a complete liability on defense. Those calling his defense horrible are either trolling or relying on his play on teams years before Houston. He played fantastic here & should've been resigned. The organization dropped the ball (again) and that sums it up

    Faried> Chandler, Hartenstein

    Either that or stay in China. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

    Both sides need to swallow pride, need each other.

    I know defensively Faried is a liability but help me understand why he couldn't come off the bench here and there (on a cheap contract) and help us score some points on our small ball team now. Is there not a lineup that could hide his defense and maximize his energy/scoring??

    Curious

    So you want to hide a minimum player on defense? Why? How about get someone who can guard that can help hide other players? Is Faried married to your sister? Did he do you a favor once, so you owe him? He became unplayable last year because he could not play within the scheme, He blocks the lane for Westbrook and Harden. Why would you want to mess up the things your superstars can do best in order to accommodate Faried? Do you see Pat Riley and Kerr and Popovitch accommodating players like Faried at the expense of their good players?

    I bet you’re fun at parties. I’m just looking for some cheap help off the bench with energy/scoring/rebounding/3pt shooting.

    What is wrong with you? The man just merely gave his opinion and you had to be an asshole about it.
