    small tidbit about two former Rockets getting invites to the Thunder training camp.

    link is more about Harden's ankle roll tidbit is at bottom


    Nice to see another team giving Harris a shot I really liked him when he played here. As for Flying Ryan he always deserves a roster spot, just not with the Rockets

    Agreed on Harris, disagree strongly on Ryan.

    Harris is another hustle and bustle player like Scola and Landry, except his offense is weaker. I liked the energy he brought into the game, but we need to fix our weaknesses first.

    I really like Mike Harris for his work ethic and hustle. If only he wasn't 6'6 he would have been a great roleplayer on a squad. I hope he sticks with the Thunder, they are my 2nd fav team...

    I could see Harris fitting in with the Thunder. A scrappy, hustle guy who will pick up the loose scraps from Durant, Westbrook, Green and Harden.

    Bowen? Nope.

    I wish Mike Harris the best. I love his character and his game and really hope he can find a permanent home in the NBA, even if it isn't with us.

    We shouldve invited Mike Harris to camp. He fits right in with our team. He could play the 3 and 4. I'm actually sorta surprised he wasn't. I hope he gets onto the Thunder. They're my 3rd favorite team.

    I liked Harris a lot too but he is redundant. He can't play the 2 and it too small to play the 4 so where is he going to get minutes behind Battier and Ariza. It would be a wasted roster spot for a team that needs size up front and guard skills at SG.

    I do think he has the skills to make himself valuable to other NBA teams, however.

    I hope that if he doesn't make their roster, then we sign him to our D-League.
