    Adds size, experience to the lineup. Bring House from the bench.

    it would probably give harden somewhat of a lob threat again and lower pj's minutes at the 5, thus saving his legs, but that won't happen.

    i would like to see this as well.

    House shouldn't be starting. Green is showing he has plenty left in the tank since hes been here. versatile enough to be a rim threat, shoot, handle the ball off harden/wb

    Green, PJ, Cov, harden, wb is worth starting to see what this looks like. eventually in the playoffs I bet youll see it to start a game

    when you have someone on the floor that can't shoot, well it's obvious.

    every year before this one, the guard next to harden could shoot. it isn't rocket science

    We need some change after getting destroyed on the glass inside again.

    Jeff Green is horrible. He’s a complete negative for the team when he’s on the court who helps no one but himself.

    I’d rather replace House with McLemore. The better shooter.

    I was harsh. He’s skilled but he doesn’t ever fit in with a team. Never ever helps a team or makes them better.

    I feel the same about House as you do. Dude us likely to shrink when the lights are brighter. Just not ready for prime time yet, hopefully one day.

    I would hope MDA makes this change soon. No brainer move.

    whether he does it in the regular season or not, I'd bet we'd see that lineup to start a playoff game at some point this year

    since green has came to the rockets he has an offensive rating of 129 and a defensive rating of 109. he has a .168 WS/48 and 1.8 BPM.

    green has been great for the rockets in his limited time so far

    Bruno sucks right now. you would just go back to 2 guys who can't shoot 3s next to harden

    Literally means nothing. He’s had three games where he had zero assists. It’s a stretch of basketball where the team had been playing really well.
    Utah cut this dude for a no name.
    He’s been on minimum contracts and has bounced around so much. He just gets his so teams keep thinking he’ll bring something to them and then it becomes abundantly clear he just gets his.
    Not going to go back and forth on Green but there are different numbers you can pull up to make either side of the argument and I would say it should be obvious the most significant one is the number of teams, or lack there of, that want him.

    I was happy we signed him, but I don’t want him playing much at all
