    Harden
    West
    ?
    Wood
    Cousions

    We need a guy to defense small forward and a backup guard and center for rivers left team and cousions backup.

    We can also look at the market for any good players such as Markieff style which can play in different positions.

    Kenneth Faried < pf and center good backup for cousins and good match with westbrooks

    Gerald Green < sf good 3 pointer, he has heart.

    Michael Beasley < sf and pf 50 percent shooting

    I Thomas < guard position only, he has heart. weakness is on defence.

    Harkinstein can also give him a chance.

    ego backup harden and westbrooks are good. But in sf position, we need a sf to guard Leborn, Kawhi, sonic, seems that ego is very short and it is the weakness point

    He's a pretty amusing twitter follow who doesn't take himself seriously - bring him in, pretty good bench cheerleader a la Chandler.

    Boogie brings needed size, if IT was 6'3 or taller it would be different.

    Last I checked the rockets have a big hole at backup pg or better yet serviceable guard off the bench for that matter

    Yes for veteran minimum. Better than undrafted rookie.

    Who can he defend? Might as well sign Reggie Jackson.

    IT played most of last year and sucked. His major injury was 3 years ago now. He played 23 mins per game in 40 games and shot 40%. There is no mystery with IT.

    Yes. Playoff experience. Former all star. Played well last year with Washington. Feeling healthy again with no pain. Why not?

    We haven't seen Cousins play since his injury so we don't know. He could be good he could be bad. We've seen IT and he's been bad. It's really simple actually. I know a lot of guys here don't want to watch random Washington games but he was complete trash last year. The IT injury was in 2017 and its almost 2021 now. IT already has a post injury sample size.

    at this point the rockets have nothing to lose. Especially when they have 0 depth with nothing but scraps of players in the pool. him playing like complete trash is over-exaggeration on your part, especially when he shot over 40% from 3

    Did you watch any of his games last year? I watched quite a bit cause I had Rui on my fantasy team. Dude is done. Like done done. For a signing to be a flier there has to be potential for upside. Someone coming back form injury, an unproven rookie, someone coming from a toxic situation, those are fliers. IT is coming from a better situation in a season where he was already healthy and shot 40.3% total from the field. You know what it means when he shoots 40.3% total and 41% from 3? It means he lacks any athleticism to get to the basket or any better position so all he can do now is spot up. Add to that the fact that he's too small and now too slow to defend anybody in the league. He might not even be able to defend me at this point. He's done.
