    It's been years since D.Howard basically destroyed and made T.Chandler his bitch but I still can't stomach the signing.

    was/is there an indication he would be back? e.g. open Ryno slot/Cleamons' spot?

    My hope is this, if not than coach is truly clueless; which I choose not to believe.

    Once again. I really think we should try some variable line ups.

    Westbrook - Harden - PJ - Hartenstein - Capela?

    Seriously in games we feel we cannot play Chandler . . ..we absolutely must play Harty some minutes.
    PJ and Capela going 35+ a night is not going to do .. .

    BMac is not the answer
    Thabo is not the answer

    Maybe i am just rose color glassesing it here
    but Hartys offense is decent from his GLeague days

    You didnt even mention his one million rebounds and defense. He hasn't even showcased his passing or shooting.

    I've been saying that same thing because he can shoot the 3 and rebound at 7 ft...aka twin towers.

    it’s ridiculous that he is the MVP in the G league and can’t even get playing time at all for the Rockets.

    Why has Gary Clark not been getting any run? Seems like every time he comes in for garbage time he scores as soon as he touches the ball. Might as will give him a few minutes in game and see if he can do anything.

    Agreed

    Here is the thing
    We will trade them for some journeyman . . . .
    then bitch about how great they are on another team

    When are their contracts up . . .cause I worry we will let them walk for free

    Clark and Hartenstein should be investments for the future.
    Clark is a SF-PF
    Hartenstein is a PF-C

    Thabo has no future with the Rockets outside the bench
    Chandler is a one year rental . .. 2 at most
    McLemore - I have no idea what he is .. ... but seemingly stealing time from Hartenstein and Clark

    Yes absolutely. He can't block shots to save his life. He can however rebound and shoot the three. We should stop asking him to roll to the basket but pull away to hit the three. He will get better at it.

    That would take a coach willing to coach his team (all the players) and not watch a system.

    Our coach is 70 years old. He’s having a tough time realizing Hartenstein is the 2nd best big man on our team.
