    Nwaba is the leader of the HOUnds switch everything defense.

    Nwaba, Tate, Garuba, Wood, EGo = LOCKDOWN

    No one said he can turn water into wine :D Hopefully by the trade deadline, until then he can back up KPJ.

    Nwaba, Tate and Garuba (some matchups) is such a great trio of defenders at the 2/3/4. If Garuba and Nwaba can hit a corner 3, we have a good defensive core. Garuba can go PnR with our lead guard too.

    Ariza/Tucker/Moute vibes, our defense made my jaw drop when those three were healthy. These 3 are not quite there yet, but Stone has the right idea.

    I bet Nwaba is a hard worker too which is great for the young guys and bodes well for his long term value if he can stay healthy.

    Only Tate does not have +7'0 wingspan of the 3.

    Theis, Khyri, EGo are also excellent defenders.

    Sorry buy why do people insist to these depth charts and at least one player not at the right position. Theis will be the center, starter or off the bench and Wood will play at PF.

    I hope some bonuses will be the difference between 12 and 15 million - guessing the numbers - and he can get 1-1,5 million each season where he shoots above 35% from three. Some incentive to keep working on his shot.

    Great guy to lay some knowledge on the youngsters, too. Love the signing and a nice team contract. Stone keeps on a roll.

    this was a great -- we can't lose -- signing. he's already worth that 5 million a year and can easily be a bargan contract if he improves. He's a perfect contract to later package to get a superstar!

    Silas needs to completely embrace the HOUnds.

    F bringing them in with Rockets down by 20, start these savages.

    OTOH i would like for the guys to get some continuity, and long time chemistry, perhaps we dont need other superstars and can win the chip without one, suns almost did it...nwaba is a joy to watch, if he reaches 40% on 3s i wouldnt trade him ever, i want to enjoy such a player on MY TEAM
