    I hope this means the return of his podcast, Go Off.

    But seriously, never thought I'd say this, but Austin Rivers is kinda perfect in Houston right now. Welcome Back AR!

    Huh? He was probably the best player off the bench in the playoffs. They were a different team in round 2 gm1 when he was out.

    I wonder if Faried will realize that Houston is the only place his talent will be appreciated too.

    I'm hoping for one of the Green guys (JaMychal or Jeff) or a PnR/rebounder like Looney, McGee or Chandler. If not Faried wouldn't be bad though I wonder if MDA would actually play him next year.
