    When are we going to talk about the inevitable? This guy is a stud whether you can see it now or not. Only obstacle in his way is decision making. Just as athletic as JG but stronger with better defense.

    JAYGUP OTW!!!!!

    I think after the deadline when Gordon is off the roster, will give him some time to work on game in the G league. He already plays hard, shown defensive potential, and is a plus in transition. Getting 36 minutes a night in the G league working on handles, passing, playing with adults will be better for his development than getting mop up minutes in the association.

    I really believe he can be a better Point Guard if he plays for Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

    It worked out for Kevin Porter Jr and KJ Martin Jr last year, both improved so much.

    Jaygup will be upset about being on RGV but he will play completely different and will look more confident when he gets called up to the Rockets.

    Usman Garuba should go to to RGV and develop his shot and play more minutes.

    Usman really is KJ Martin Jr area when he used to be a bad 3 point shooter. Now KJ Martin is one of the best shooters on the team.

    Josh is definitely talented, but he needs A LOT of refinement and I think him being in the G league will help tremendously.

    Could he a rotation player when we don’t have anything to play for towards the end of the season and if he progresses well.

    I think next year will be more likely for him.

    He should start! Where is that option in the poll?
    JC should start and JG should be our 6th man this year. JC brings energy and will do all the non-glamour work - defense, screens, cuts, spot-ups - to complement KPJ, Wood and Alpi (who should start, too). Let pretty-boy be the soup-a-sta of the second unit in Year One. If he masters that, then let's reconsider things for Year Two.

    WTF KIND OF BS THREAD IS THIS? HE IS THE BEST PLAYER ON OUR TEAM! POSSIBLY THE BEST PLAYER IN THE HISTORY OF THE FRANCHISE (WATCH OUT DREAM)! IF HE DOESN'T START GAME 1 THEN SILAS SHOULD BE FIRED!

    This kid's going to be a helluva player one day, but he's not a PG. Forget about that. He's a 2/3.... By the time he's done growing/putting on muscle/weight...He's likely 6' 6" 225 - 230...strong/lightning quick...a wing with good handles, nice shot, great finisher....should become a superior defensive player. Eventually will mature on the court with experience.

    If he reaches that size, he can play the 3 in stretches with KPJ and Green, which would be great.

    Josh was a positive on the court both these games on both ends of the floor, and the chemistry with him and Alp is obvious. That's why it would be good to have him in the rotation, but that's only possible if we trade EG...So he will probably go to the Vipers and get reps. He has the physical tools, and he seems like a smart and articulate guy. If he can get consistent minutes and develop, he's gonna be an impact player for the Rockets.

    He can still do that due to his strength and length. His dimensions are very similar to Eric Gordon. He is not overly tall, but he has long reach and he's naturally stout and strong.

    Josh is the most physically gifted of the young Rockets but he has some skill and aptitude issues.

    Delusional Jaygup fan, It will b Sengun who will lead our Rockets to greatness. He will go down in history as one of the greatest Turkish player to grace the court/Rockets and have his number hanging on the raft.

    ROY, MIP, MVP all possible.

    Still wish he was Bones :/

    But a fan nonetheless! Love his defensive intensity and drive, just need to get his jumper consistent - needs game reps bad.
