    he absolutely can create off the dribble and drive to the rim... just have to do it consistently

    So what’s the difference between him and the rookie Duval?? Seems like they are very identical players IMO.

    Trevon Duvall is a keeper for sure he is only 19 years, he has a great ability to drive to the basket at will. His shot looks improved. He can learn so much from Chris Paul.

    Two assists, and a FG percentage of 33 is unacceptable.

    Pg that only dishes out 2 assist is downright sad. Harden dishes way more and that's not even his role.

    Carter-Williams and Hartenstein will constitute the Rockets' light-skinned brigade this year.

    We'll see on MCW. But I am willing to give him a chance. Thought about it some.

    What MCW can bring to the Rockets most is "position versatility" as someone that can "fill in" at 1-2-3 spots if needed. Someone that can get after it on defense, like Exum did for Utah last playoffs. And someone that can handle the basketball as a PG to get things going.

    Yes he is a poor shooter. But, as a VET MIN guy and is ok "no being played some games", he looks like a good "value play" here.

    Briante Weber, Markel Brown, Aaron Jackson, Tim Quarterman, Joe Johnson.......MCW is still young and can play some defense across a number of positions. He could help the Rockets. It is a move "on the margins" but still a nice addition.

    Yeah. I agree at the vet minimum it isn't much to worry about. I also acknowledge I was downright pissed when Morey hired D'Antoni and that's turned out okay.
