    Can we take back Love by just moving Clint and minimum guys?

    Glad to have Austin back, but that presser is going to be downright embarrassing.

    "Please welcome our big Summer '19 Fireworks Season free agent acquisitions: Austin Rivers, Danuel House, Jr. and Gerald Green!"

    We can do a LOT worse than Rivers at the back up point guard spot. Remember Michael Carter Williams?

    This signing is big on so many levels.

    Among them that if there was dissension in the locker room, I don't think Rivers would be taking a below market deal to come back.

    He's a career 35% shooter in RS and 37% in the playoffs. Not great, but fine. He can also be a playmaker and get a bucket by himself, and has consistently been one of the best isolation scorers in the league the last few years, he's not a 'stand in the corner and shoot' guy like our other role players. He can also play defense.

    But other than that....

    Never thought this would happen. Seriously happy that Rivers wanted to be here and obviously took less money. Huge win for the Rockets.

    Hell no. Andrew Wiggins is a vastly inferior player to Chris Paul.

    I thought that position would have been filled by the resigning of Danuel House Jr.?

    Or is this just what the HOF have us thinking?

    Damn didn't think he would be so loyal. Not like the Rockets deserve it.
