  2. Live Rockets Discussion
    Alperen Şengün is back, set to face the team that traded him away. Kevin Porter Jr. still seems a ways away from a return. ŞenHub, trade deadline (it's February!) and more -- We're talking Houston Rockets at 11:00am CT.

    We're Talking Rockets!

Realistically, what is Garrison Mathews' ceiling?

    Better shooting mix of Tony Allen, Bruce Bowen, Trevor Ariza. A 3rd or 4th option in a good team. Elite starting role player on a championship team

    Battier/Ariza with a much better 3 ball.

    He's the super saiyan form of Budinger and Dekker, but i believe he can trascend into a true Herro.

    JJ Reddick with defense, wouldnt mind being wrong though. Hope he's Larry Bird. Whatever he is I hope he becomes it in a Rockets uniform.

    His ceiling is probably what he is producing right now!

    15-16ppg and hustle-mania

    He isn't a 20ppg guy.

    Herro is a true potentially elite combo guard. 21/5/4 with amazing shooting splits and is same age as KPJ. He’s a Donovan Mitchell, Ja Morant type player.

    What about his ceiling being Garry Matthews?? He hits timely 3's, hustles on the defensive end and gives you 110% all the damn time. Straight Baller

    Didn't vote. Didn't see "The Roof" as an option.

    It's so interesting to me how many of you guys refuse to compare him to black players. I think the Wes Matthews comp is the best.

    Realistically, this IS his ceiling.
    9-15 PPG shooting 40% from 3. A guy you can have off the bench as a title contender or as a starter on a good team.
