    Dwight doesn't want to be here and was causing chemistry problems, so I guess Anderson

    This is a great signing.

    Offense with Harden Beas and Ryan is gonna be pretty hard to prepare for.

    Now if the Rockets were able to get a rebounding big that can protect the rim and play solid defense...Nope...not Howard.

    Capela is too small.

    Oh and I have zero idea what this means for DMo...Wouldve really liked him back. But paying Ryan Anderson 20 mil per damn...

    Wouldve been incredibly happy if the Rockets were able to nab Millsap via trade.

    Not me. And I'd wager not many on here. I'd much rather stand pat and go for ping pong balls for one season than waste all that capspace on a guy who will do little to improve us over last year's record.

    There's no way to spin this. Les and Morey are desperate. They have to sign someone and Anderson is one of the few decent unrestricted free agents who would even consider playing here(for 20 mil a season anyway).

    Anderson can score but when he doesn't hit he doesnt' stop shooting. He can as easilly lose you games left and right.

    What you want from a pf?
    a) Defence? Nope
    b) Rebounding ? Nope
    c) Scoring ? Streaky
    d) Versatility ? Nope
    e) Health ? Nope

    But yeah..good signing.
