    With a stacked roster full of guards, do we still need a 6"5 three-point shooting specialist? He would absolutely thrive in the rockets system and could be that last piece, not to mention a great locker-room guy. Should the rockets bring him back?

    Interested to hear your thoughts Rockets Fam.

    You absolutely sign him. Low risk high reward, career 40% 3pt shooter yes please. Great for those games where we can't hit a open 3.

    Lol! Covington in street clothes! I’m down with Troy D... we play team defense now. We’ll have 3 people that can shoot the 3 from the top.

    McLemore is better. Daniels is a pitiful defender too.

    so, he would match the minutes of half the roster. Sign him; waive DMC - - he's too tall.

    MDA = 6/7...or less.

    6'7 Ryan Broekhoff (6'10 wingspan) is better 3ball shooter (40% vs. 35% this season), better rebounder, better rim protector and better defender.

    So would not be my first option.

    I mean you sign him as a security signing just in case a one of our three bench guards (EG, B-Mac,Rivers) gets injured. He can win you a playoff game or two simply by his shooting.

    Our guard rotation is already crowded with Harden, Westbrook, EG, Mclamore and Rivers. Who's minutes is Daniels going to take?
