    He's out here looking like a foreign rookie who just flew across an ocean last night.

    He looked confused and scared. Nothing to worry about

    I have faith he will settle down but his offense will be raw no matter what.

    I'm not worried about his first summer league game. Usman had one hell of a long day and is coming off Spain's Olympic run. We knew his offense was extremely raw, but that he was also an all world defender. I'm still wicked excited about just how much better both Sengun and Green will become by having to face off against Garube in practice every day for years to come. Iron sharpens iron my damies.

    You can teach basics to anyone, Giannis started playing bball when he was 16, Garuba is 19

    Never thought that Kamaru Usman would be afraid of anyone. The man beat everyone in his weight class.

    Same old weird Pr we keep releasing, like including brooklyn's swap for 21 or announcing we're guaranteeing a 2nd round success players contract valued at under 2 million, under teh veterans minimum....
    its geared towards casuals who don't understand this **** is standard or just embellesshing th record for PR. Sadly it works. and yes there is an nba imposed limits for all teams, we can only contirbute like 750k or some small amount, another pointless announcement leak by the rockets. Who does this work for? no the agents and players no better, its for casuals to not aalong and say rockets owner is really a players environment guy

    $750K for next 3.5 seasons.

    But that means no buyouts for same period.

    Euros likely not draft targets in future.

    Has Garuba gone back to Spain? I read a tweet that said he went back. It didn't say where he went back.

    Our guy had a whole life there with an apartment, stuff, bills, relationships, etc. Of course he’s going back to sort all that out before he lands in Houston for good.
