    I am okay with this only if Morey can flip Bell and the 2nd rounder into a center that isn't complete hot garbage

    The Rockets potential line ups and match ups doubled.

    They will get a center but Covington and Tucker will play some at that spot.

    I appreciate Capela. He has always believed in himself from the time we drafted him. A good player but at a position not that valuable and was on a team where he did not fit.

    I mean, that's what DAntoni wanted to do anyways. Should be a fun rest of the season. Everybody here forgets that having another elite defender next to PJ gave us some of the more elite defense we ever played.

    I expect our defense to improve and also am excited that we will be unlocking our full offensive potential with Russ being the only non shooter in the line up.

    Capela was overrated man. He reached his peak with his hands of stone

    The 1st round pick makes this hard to swallow. That has Tilman written all over it.
