    People should actually read about his collegiate career. He was the second option on a good Wisconsin team and scored very efficiently. Not a great shooter but is very good in open space. He is essentially a more athletic, less play making version of Chandler Parsons ( parsons assisted on a crazy amount of possessions in college).

    And ironically, trading Brooks and Bud produced the picks used to select DMo and TJones.

    Every time I see you post this "kick the can" meme, I'm going to remind you that

    Trading Brooks landed the pick used to select DMo. Hypocrite.

    Interesting how he was 'injured' and kept off the roster as such until we send a couple
    of bodies packing. Then all of a sudden he's ready to play? ;)

    Morey is playing the lottery. He is cashing in $10 tickets hoping to win big. It makes since for a statistics guy to maximize his odds of finding the outside the lottery star by picking as many times as he can.

    I don't really judge Morey picks by themselves I judge them against the picks after them and using that standard he is pretty good.

    We don't have infinite time, there is a good chance Harden will leave when his contract is up if we're still pursuing this strategy, making a lucky pick in the mid teens redundant.

    Hope we dump him for a pick before rest of the league realizes he is a scrub

    I've never seen a player with so few minutes be this hated. We don't know anything about this guy.

    Royce was league wide almost, he made a huge deal.

    Dekker is neither promising or not. Just nothing yet.

    Plus Royce White still has a small chance to be a great player for the Rockets.

    Dekker is a good player. He'll show it once the rust dusts away.
