    At the very least he gives the rockets a much needed veteran in the locker room.

    Sounds like he talks about his free agency situation and the Rockets in this interview? Any Spanish speakers that can translate?

    If Kostas isn't the backup/rotation 3 this season I'm going to be pissed.. UNLESS he is part of a trade.

    I can't see a spot for Cisco on this year's team, especially after his performance last season.

    Swap D-Mo and Capela.

    Delfino with LESS ball handling is a GOOD thing.

    Reporter: are you feeling better after your injury?

    Garcia: you've been misinformed I'm not injured, I feel fine, I have talked to my agent and I'm just waiting on my contract situation.

    Reporter: can you talk about it or the team it is, are they in the west?

    Garcia: yes I'm going again with Houston for another year.

    Reporter: how many years? Two years?

    Garcia: (I'm guessing he can't talk about specifics, because here he just smiles and says he's is going with houston again.)

    Then they go on to talk about the DR national team and how proud he is to represent them. Also this is his last year on the national team but he has faith the new up and comers will do well.

    So he is coming? Assuming no trades, I guess he'd take the 15th spot from Covington.

    Yep, looks like he's signing for 1 year or as much as 1+1.

    Weak bench but worst of all, no 6th man! We are going to have to make a trade somewhere for a legit leader off the bench that is starter quality to dominate against the opponents weaker bench otherwise forget about a deep run in the playoffs because Harden and Howard are going to be completely burned out!

    With what we got right now I would bet for:

    Bev - Harden - Ariza - Jones - Howard
    Johnson - Daniels - Papanikolaou - Motiejunas

    Ish - Cisco - Gee - Adrien - Dorsey

    Don't forget Capela, Canaan, and Hamilton. The depth looks wrong to me too. Here is what I am thinking by the end of the season and for the playoffs.

    Starters: Bev, Harden, Ariza, Jones, Howard
    Backup: Canaan, Daniels, KoPa, Adrien, Dorsey, Johnson
    Scrubs: D-Mo, Cisco, Ish, Gee, Hamilton
    Unknown/Projects: Capela

    I think DMO is going to get some serious burn even if it is just for the purpose of being showcased.

    I think how he was featured in the summer league is evidence of that.

    I think Adrien will be a situational player at best. Definitely not in the rotation.

    I think D-Mo sucks ass and by the end of the season will either be gone or on the bench where he belongs.

    I also think you severely underestimate Adrien. He is a high energy guy that has really improved since he last had him and will provide solid backup minutes at PF.

    Actually I forgot him. Not Canaan, whom I think could be after Pat, Johnson and Smith at PG rotation. I see McHale trying to use NJ as a kind of Lin substitute, switching backcourt positions.

    Probably we're going to see moves, and injuries, so that's just some cheap summer talking.. I could also see Adrien/Dorsey entering on the rotation.
