  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

Should we take a look at Ben Gordon?

    in case you haven't noticed the current roster is pretty full with minutes pretty scarce

    But...... He averaged 1 ppg and 1 apg!!!! And That's actually during the preseason when he was being tried out, imagine him in a real game!! He's so elite!!

    Also per roto: "He was signed on Sept. 25 and never really had a chance to make the team because of how deep the Warriors are. Gordon might get picked up by a team not competing for a title."

    LOL, so unless the Rockets roster switched places with the Vipers... NO WAY!

    It's the OP's M.O. for a while now--either he starts a thread about his love for all things Mavericks or he starts a thread that has zero substance or insight.

    He just posts about recognizable players and tries to build hype and praise. Reaching for the low hanging fruit, like a no-depth casual fan trying too hard to fit in would do.

    *Edit*

    And Ben Gordon is as fool's gold volume scorer as there is. He really is negative value. He might stick in NBA but he's starting to look a prime candidate for Chinese league stardom.

    That would be fantastic. I think he could be mini-JJ Redick on the right team.

    I kinda feel like if the Spurs couldn't get any utility out of him, then he doesn't have a place in the NBA. Spurs are probably the best organization at putting one-dimensional players in a position to succeed.
