    He wasn't there today and may not play much in the Summer League given timing and jet lag, but let's not forget about this guy.

    Terrible. No buyout as yet.

    Eat more Landry’s so broke Tilman can afford the buyout

    man these posts are so annoying. Tilman isn’t paying for his buyout. I think he pays 750k

    usman pays the rest. I think I have seen this exact post 250 times

    Usman won't even make enough to cover it. So Tillman needs to step up and give him
    Money under the table. Ala what the Nets do with their stars.

    The Olympic games are over. Where is Usman Garuba? Is he serving quarantine in Tokyo?

    Same as Jordan then. Simply put, any draft pick is a gamble and there are tons of reasons to potentially pass up on someone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wish he could’ve gotten in done in time to guard Cade but whatever. Welcome!

    Still, not many rookies have paid $3.5M USD of their own money to come and play for the Rockets.

    Well, he certainly doesn't have that much cash on him, but they probably agreed to get it paid over the course of 5-10 years or something.

    That was so last week.

    Cade’s too short for him to command Garuba. We can put Josh on him :D
