    I guess players took too long to progress?

    Can someone with more info let us know what's going on with him?

    Didn't Morey recruit him out of some unknown place? Thought he was a bright mind in bball.

    It's pretty surprising.

    He came from Keystone, which is a small school in the North.

    I know the Rockets were not happy with the development of some of their young guys down there but I don't know how much of that they related to Smith.

    Nick Johnson struggled in the D League after a great summer league.

    I thought both Capela and Johnson got plenty of good experience in the D-league. I don't know, I'm just surprised that they fired someone after only 2 years.
