    He's actually sitting Orlando out due to a child custody issue. Sucks for the Blazers, and Trevor of course.

    If he’s healthy (which he HAS to be by now), I like our chances. He’s immediately our best post defender.

    What I like is that DAntoni does trust him, so he may actually make the rotation. If he is healthy (HUGE IF), a line up of:

    Covington
    Tucker
    Luc
    Harden
    Westbrook

    Is going to be pretty damn good. I want to get my hopes up, but considering Luc has not really played professional basketball in about two years, I'm almost certain he will likely be a flop. Hell, I'm still excited if he proves us wrong.

    I cannot even begin to fully express how pumped I am about this. I want to find the video of Luc dancing in the middle of a Rockets circle.

    If his knee and shoulder are at least 75% healthy this is a fantastic pick up.

    Anxious to see it too. Nvm the offense. It’s his defensive iq and versatility that’s much needed and will be his calling card above all else

    I feel like when a player like this returns it is almost always a let down, and they never end up playing and cut relatively quickly. I don't think the rockets have ever brought back a player and had them return to anywhere near the level they were at before. Maybe Ariza his first year back (although his role was completely different)? That is all I can think of. Everyone usually ends up being some trade book end and that is all.
