    Landale has 378 minutes
    His last 184 or about half his time as Rocket.
    Net Rating 19.3, Off 115.4, Def Rating 96.1, TS% 58.4, 15.9% OFF Reb %, 11.7 Def Reb % (okay this isn't good), while knocking down half his threes.

    If there was enough of a sample to be down on Landale in his 1st 194 minutes, there is enough sample to be happy with his current play. If there isn't enough sample, we should be looking at his Phoenix data which was good which is similar to the last 184 minutes except the off and def rebound %s are flipped and he's hot from 3.

    And what are they going to do about Boban? Sit him for a third year in a row? Something has to be done to better utilize that roster spot. Since there are reports about the Rockets possibly using Landale’s and Adam’s contract in a future trade, I would like to draft a young big that can grow with the team and eventually backup Sengun.

    Yeah, I intentionally left out Boban. I get that he's a great locker room presence, but I personally think it's time for the Rockets to move on from him.

    I didn't realize he was Australian until he was interviewed after the previous game. We need more Landale interviews.

    Jock is doing a fine job, I like his picks, rebounding, passing and his ability to space the floor. I'm glad he's finally playing well.

    Remind me of another Aussie David Andersen. Probably better.

    Maybe that ankle still was bothering him. I wouldn’t mind keeping him as the emergency 3rd center.

    Boban is likely gone and Jock will take his place.

    I don't want to draft a young big cuz that will just cause problems with Sengun. Like imagine if you got Sarr to backup Sengun then Sarr Def won't be happy with 20 mins a night and it'll be bad for his development too.

    Somebody like Adams or Jock is the best backup because he is in his prime and also ok to be a backup.

    This is the Jock the Suns fans were talking about. A great back-up big to do the little things. Just please never take another baby hook shot again lol.

    Everybody assumed Jock was one and done for us, especially when we signed Adams. 8m will be tough to swallow for a third string center. Unless we aren’t planning any trades or don’t need the cap space one or the other will be gone. If Jock had played like this sooner, the Adams trade probably doesn’t happen.

    If Landale can keep shooting above 36% from 3 we’re going to win a surprising number of games. Having two stretch 5’s will unlock so many opportunities for Amen and Jalen.

    True but with Adams injury history he also may not see the floor for 82 games

    I mean making players upset surely that goes very well right? Having your star rookie disgruntled and feeling you are limiting his chances that will Def garner a lot of sports loyalty. Morey treating his players like assets and expendable commodities that Def works out.
