    What this is a 4 year contract worth 8 years….nobody wanted him..,,Phoenix signed everybody and their brother and still did not sign him. We gave him 8 million for 4 years? He cannot shoot, can block shots? What are we doing

    Can you imagine being a fringe NBA player with 123 games and 5 starts under your resume and you get multi millions guaranteed just because they needed someone to spend the money on?

    Yes…..now I thought Stone would put wrinkles in the contract…..

    The Rockets agreed with free agent center Jock Landale on a four-year, $32M deal — with only the first season guaranteed, sources tell ESPN


    Now I understand

    I guarantee you he will be a fan favourite, plays and works extremely hard and will be perfect for our culture with Patty.

    Just realised that with Jock and Patty we absolutely have to keep the green and gold jerseys

    Warmly welcome Houston Boomers

    No he wasn't. Ayton just sucks, and Landale does all the dirty work. Gave them a fighting chance against Jokic.
    stats don't tell the story. He competed and fought. Ayton was just plain soft

    Kind of meh. At least the contract isn't bad. 8m with 1 year guaranteed is nothing.

    That moment the haters realize Ime just created major flexibility with a slew of what are essentially expiring contracts we can move off at the deadline to acquire more talent.
