The guy's a baller who got stuck in really odd situations. He was a stud when he was drafted and with his limited minutes here. Really good role player.

I think we really messed up with Court.

He should still be a Rocket. During those stretches when the Rockets cannot score the ball unless Harden is hot, Courtney would be great.

I forget what the circumstances were, but I thought we planned on resigning him. What happened?

I understand Morey's rebuilding ideology, but Court is young and would have been a great piece to help with depth.

I'll take him over Cook any day of the week.

I love our team, but I can't lie. I still miss Kyle, Courtney and Luis (Dragic...meh). Can you imagine how much better off we would be right now with Luis still starting at the 4? Constant jumpers being drained and taking the load off of James....

Yes, I know all of these trades/ releases helped acquire Harden, but damn, we gave up some really underrated players.

I guess it's the loyalty I feel. I felt the same way when we gave up Cat in the Tmac trade. It just seems like sometimes the role players that are thrown into superstar deals to match salaries turn out to be detrimental.

I don't think we would be better with Scola. He gave up too much on D. At first I didn't think PPat was the answer but he has really been on fire. He's proven to me he can hit the three. Sure, he can be soft, but not as soft as Scola. In the last few weeks Patterson has proven a lot to me. Dude has made over half his shots in each of the last like 12 games I think. PPat is beasting right now almost as much as Parsons

Delfino was cheaper. We also drafted Lamb before the trade.

Courtney wasn't a playmaker anyway. He was a good 3pt shooter but that's about it offensively. He was actually more a stopper. He wouldn't have been such a drastic improvement over Carlos.

Lee is a better all-around player than Delfino. I'd take him over Delfino any day.

But you are right about the Lamb draft. Lamb wouldn't have a chance to develop if we had Lee. But now, Lamb is gone. I'd rather have Lee than Douglas, Cook, or Delfino backing up the 2 spot.

or budinger! miss that guy. as a whole, we have some really nice starters that overall have some high rankings when they're on the court. Once the bench goes in, everything goes down the sink. =(

I think the problem is we traded him away before OKC told us they'd trade Harden. At 6M a year he'd be like TD and Delfino combined, however at the time we already had Kmart as the huge expiring and Lamb as the potential rook.

If OKC told us they'd trade Harden before Clee got resigned I think he'd still be on the squad. Then again, Clee was itching for a starting spot so maybe he would have wanted to try FA anyway.

The Rckts were clearing space for signing Lin and Asik while keeping some cap room to still try for a Dwight trade (and other possible moves). My guess is that if they managed to land an elite player (like Dwight Howard) before A decision on Lee had to be made, they would have tried harder to keep Lee as a complementary player.

Lee's a role player. He won't change the landscape backing up Harden on the second unit that's gonna be worth the extra salary. There are much more pressing concerns, even on the first unit, like getting a post option.

Courtney is kind of prone to choking in pressure situations. He actually tweeted something like this before when he choked here in Houston. I wasn't watching this game, but it sounds like he airballed a wide open three with 25 seconds left in OT lol.
