    He'd be the 8th or 9th guy in the rotation, probably getting 15 minutes a night like Jeff Green did tonight. Meh.

    i would do that. Clemons is nice but not sure if he will become a solid player

    I'd cut a lot of people before I cut Clemons. I'm undecided on Green so far but I can name a handful of people I'd cut first over Clemons. You would really keep Michael Frazier and William Howard?

    Thanks for educating me. I would still drop Chandler, Thabo, House and maybe Rivers.

    Claim him, even if just to mess with the Lakers.

    Only other better player hitting pool could be Harkless. Do it Murray. Contract fits.

    Ask MDA whether he will use it. MDA will not use 8 players, those players can be cut

    If there is no other good buyout players in the market and he is able to guard Gianns, it is better take him rather than remaining those money. I can only see the Jeff is ok, I still dont know Carrol and Brouco are the right people in the rotation. I think Houston can win championship this year.

    Morris is not a solid defender anymore.

    I think though you'd rather have him on your team than the Lakers. Clemons is a G-league player I think you have to go with Morris to try and win the chip

    The rockets have been trying to acquire him for years. Markeiff is not interested in coming to Houston and never will be. They reached out to him last year and it was a hard no because of how the organization treated his brother. That's what someone told that works in for team. Blood will always be thicker than water.

    MDA has had 9 man rotation or more last 3 games.
