    This is interesting. Bima didn't think he would. Lamb showed up well in the G-League after we signed him, but was way tentative after he was promoted to Rox. He has some decent skills, just needs to gain confidence and keep developing his game. Decent end of the bench guy for next year. C'mon Armoni B, you need an offer as well.

    I’m good with both of these. They’re both still young and showed potential at the NBA level, so it makes perfect sense to extend them offers.

    I just finished reading the Bima article.

    And then I saw this.

    I’m glad he got the QO.

    With Green and JC added to current roster this guy is nailed to G league unless something goes wrong or he plays out of his mind.

    They can always rescind the offer, but it makes sense. End of bench guys who can contribute in some way are worth maintaining control over

    Lamb sucks, guys. I’m sorry, easily the worst Rocket last year. I’m genuinely openminded, does anyone have solid video of this guy doing anything impressive in a Rockets jersey? Slow footed, not athletic, slow decision maker, I didn’t see anything to be even slightly hopeful about. I’m shocked we are trying to keep him.

    These guys got lucky with nba experience, and now they get a chance to fill low pressure roles on a team with structure.

    If one of them develops into a 7th man type, we will have done well. Look forward to their training camp effort.

    Wasn’t impressed last season. Not sure how he fits with the little roster room we have.

    Yeah not sure about this one unless he’s a lamb only here to be lead to the slaughter (trade or cut).

    I thought Hurt was Keith Jones' backup. How does Lamb fit in?
