    We just addressed the spacing issue in the last game by sitting Theis. Now we're putting John Wall in?

    Sure
    As long as he doesn’t turn the ball over I’m good

    Bring him back! Worst record is secured. Anyone is better than KPJ at point guard.

    If you are worried about KPJ helping the Rockets win too many games, brining Wall back would certainly help the Rockets secure the worst record.

    If he starts, this would be the perfect out for giving green more 2nd unit minutes to let him develop while not looking like we're losing confidence in him as a player

    Don't care what he does as long as this is his last season here so this circus of a team can actually start going somewhere, anywhere at all.

    Interesting. Because he was THE reason we ended the 20 game losing streak last year. He was also our best player

    I also think Wall will help Green more than KPJ

    It’s whatever but all I have to say is I did not enjoy watching him play basketball last season.

    The two questions are:

    How many minutes per game?
    Is he willing to distribute the ball?

    Wall currently is better than KPJ at the majority of things you want out of a PG. He is more secure with the ball and much better driving to the basket and finishing. The three point shooting is a bit of a wash btwn the two, and defensively I'll give the nod to KPJ because of versatility.

    The problem with Wall last season is that he was literally incapable of passing. I mean 20+ shots per game nightly. Some nights he put up 30 freaking shots.

    If he comes on board, I think Augustin is (should be) the odd man out. Move EG to the bench as a 6th man again, start wall, kpj, green, wood, and Tate, and trade EG, House, Augustin, and Theis before the deadline.

    The ideal scenario here is something of a poor man's Chris Paul with OKC. You want to stay in the lottery, but hope Wall can uplift the team enough to show people he's still got it, and also hope a team in the offseason looks at him as a gamble worth making for the final season of his contract.

    Screw him. KPJ is improving leaps and bounds and this ******* wants to start. I’d be alright to trade Augustine and give Wall his minutes, but that’s it.
