As you can tell, we have a particular roster management issue to address. After the last two games, do you think Fisher would have been a better option than signing someone off the street (ie Courtney Fortson from the D League?)

Contrary to what others believe, I still think Fisher could have been the backup PG while Lowry is out. He would have been better than anyone we're considering to sign for the remainder of the year and better than Lee running PG. So someof you are okay with signing Anthony Carter, or someone sitting on their couch? in this case, I think the Rockets org and many fans are letting their pride get them best of them. Now our team is suffering a floor general while Lowry is out and Dragic gets in foul trouble, or needs a rest.

If we don't find a solution ASAP, we are in BIG trouble.

what's wrong with fortson? he didn't look that bad tonight, in his first game for the Rox. give the man sometime before we go out and spend unneccessary money on a 3rd string PG

I don't think it was a matter of skill or ability on Fisher's part, just that he didn't even report to the Rockets.

I don't care who else the Rockets need to sign, or who else plays.... as long as I never see Courtney Lee playing PG again.

Yep.

Screw him. The bitch got his feelings hurt when the Lakers traded him (according the LA Times) and is very "emotional" about the situation.

Good. Never want to see him any closer to a Rocket jersey than when an ACTUAL Rocket is kicking his ass.

We should have traded T-Will for Ish Smith.

Or even kept T-Will and let him play the guard spot.

Blame Morey for not getting us a PG to back-up Dragic, we just lose two and probably will keep losing the next few games.

Hopefully Lowry is able to do some conditioning while he recovers, or even his return may not immediately help.

This appears to be a big miscalculation on Morey's part and is costing the team wins. The frustrating part is that there is an empty roster spot that could have been filled even before Fisher's buyout. What is the point of having a D-league affiliate if not for situations like this?

Tinsley is playing for Utah and getting good minutes, don't know why you think he plays D-League. Averaged 10.8 minutes over last 5 games, 20.8 over last 10 games, played a total of 19 games for them so far.

He's good but a bit inconsistent, can pass the ball though and doesn't shoot too bad.

I actually wouldn't mind having Anthony Carter at this point.

Yes he's washed up and was never that good to begin with, but he would provide a needed veteran leadership presence to our backcourt.

Fortson is someone you play as your backup PG if you're trying to get a high draft pick and if Dragic is going to play 45 min a game, we'll soon have 2 D-Leaguers running the 1 for us.

I was so upset when we traded for Fisher. He has a history of dirty play against the Rockets, thus I did not want him in a Rockets Uniform.

Judging from recent roster moves, it seems like we are looking to miss the playoffs to keep a draft pick and or get a look at players that may make the team next year instead of insulting Scola by welcoming Fisher into the Rocket Family.
