    I think he can be a solid player. He was looking pretty good when Beverley went down. I wish McHale had played him more.

    I've got to admit, I don't get it. Why give up assets to acquire massive potential when the season will be over in 2 months and then that potential becomes a free agent with no Bird rights?

    I freaking love KJ McDaniels as a project, but he's not going to be a key contributor for a contender by May.

    Maybe the move was to avoid a harassment suit.

    I like how he attacks the hole and his hops look dynamite

    If IC blows up, I want KM gone. He hasn't given him a fair shake since PBev healed. Shame, I really hate to lose him.

    My thoughts exactly, I don't see how this move helps the Rockets. I really don't get the 37 year old guard either. We already had one. These are both head scratchers.

    Hell if he becomes a 10ppg and 5apg while shooting 42% overall and 40% from 3, that would have been ENOUGH to help this team now.

    Haven't seen McDaniels in Philly, but he adds some athleticism. Nice pickup even though I think Canaan is going to be a good NBA player.

    We completed our annual trade with Philly!

    I think this is mostly about the great 2nd round pick, though, assuming it's Philly's own.

    You mean assuming we played him. How often does that happen?

    So much for flexibility? This is way too much to give up for a rental. I still don't get it.
