    MDA don't come cheap. There is a reason he isn't extended. I think JB Bickerstaff is a likelier option.

    Just this season. He’s only taken 25 3’s this season and hasn’t played all that much. In his last G-League season in 2018, he shot 43% from 3 on 158 attempts.

    Nobody accidentally makes 43% on 158 attempts. He can shoot well enough from 3.

    Look at the bright side, can't blame the Rockets medical staff for his knee.

    @DreamShook about to come in here and let us know Bruno already had a busted up knee FROM MEMPHIS. :D

    Sad but what did you expect. This is our "center" I guess.

    Add Nerlens Noel (6'10 7'5 wingspan) and Jonah Bolden (6'8 7'3 wingspan) then let's call it a day.

    :D

    Is this a move for RGV? Surely you don't expect this kid to have a spot in the rotation, do you?

    Assistant coach: "Mike, let's put our bench in. We got this one."
    Dan Tony; (arms crossed) "Yeah, don't want James or Russ to get hurt."
    Assistant coach: "OK! Hart, Chris, Mack, Danuel, Bruno, you're in!"
    Dan Tony: (players jogging past to scorer's table) Hey. wait. who's that?
    Assistant coach: "You're funny, Mike. Wait.....really? That's Bruno. Caboclo. We got him at the trade deadline."
    Dan Tony: "We did? Can he play?"
    Matt Bullard: "I think I just heard Mike D'Antoni ask who Bruno Caboclo is."
    Bill Worrell: "Oh, my goodness. You have to be kidding. There's no way he doesn't know his own player."
    Clyde: "I agree."
    Matt Bullard: "He never plays more than seven guys, Maybe he really doesn't know Caboclo."
    Clyde: "I agree."

    If it's one thing I can always count on, is @BimaThug bringing the positive energy. Here is Clutchfans coming down in flames, but our residents capologist tries to inflict some positive energy.

    If MDA played this dude as a Center instead of a SF in the first place, The Rockets probably wouldn't have let him go.

    I like to think that somewhere in Houston there's a guy who loved Bruno when he was in Houston in his first (very short) stint. And he's got like three Rockets Bruno Caboclo jerseys, and since he left the Rockets, his life has been in a downward spiral. He lost his job and his girlfriend, and he just sits around eating Cheetos and Hot Pockets while watching Caboclo Youtube highlights and breaking down into tears whenever he thinks of what might have been. But today is now the happiest day of his life. He's crying tears of joy right now, and in a little while, he's going to get up, shower, shave and go buy a suit for job interviews. Because all is right with the world.

    This is the only way I can get excited about this trade...
