    He had a good game. Though, against a sub .300 team.

    Ariza sucks. He has a few hot streaks here and there, but in general he is not a reliable shooter.

    What was Morey thinking? Should have signed Troy much earlier and traded Ariza and a first round pick for Corey Brewer. We would be all set for the championship!

    He has made Dekker obsolete for sure... my GOD him and Capella are trade bait..... they do not fit what we are trying to do..... unless they improve dramatically.

    Good eye by Morey by signing TW to a non guaranteed contract. He is going to pay dividend when the playoffs start with Harden at the helm.... he will stretch the floor even more.

    Yea hard to imagine a 2nd/3rd year player would actually improve.

    Very few documented cases of it ever happening

    I don't even think the mods care anymore lol. Bad threads come up like weeds. It's probably an uphill battle for moderators.

    Just wishful thinking man.... I do not think Dekker and Capella have future here in Houston. They do not fit what we are trying to do and how we are trying to play the game. Capella with his very very incompetent rebounding and defense.... and Dekker with his weak shooting..... and whatever else he is tasked to do... The guy just rebounds sometimes because of his size, other than that.... nope.

    They are trade bait...... as the Rockets will most def be ALL IN next year.... I see us taking on salary and trading away people that dont fit... like these 2.

    I truly don't get where the Capela sucks at rebounding narrative comes from.... 12 rebounds in 25 minutes is kinda good.... 8 rebounds per 24MPG for the season is also good.

    I just don't understand getting down on the guys in their 2nd/3rd years.

    On December 26, 2014 he signed with Fuerza Regia of Mexico. In his first game, he scored 19 points in the game that Fuerza Regia won 101-85 against Gigantes Estado de Mexico. Williams also grabbed 2 rebounds and has 6 assists.

    On January 17, 2015, he signed with Maccabi Ashdod of Israel. Ten days later, he left the club before playing in a single game for them. In March 2015, he signed with Vaqueros de Bayamón of Puerto Rico.
    He was released by the club after appearing in just two league games.
    In April 2015, he signed with Guaiqueríes de Margarita of Venezuela for the rest of the 2015 LPB season.

    On October 6, 2015, Williams signed with the upcoming AmeriLeague to play on the following season. However, the league folded after it was discovered the founder was a con-artist.

    You DO NOT trade a young 22 YO center with untapped potential still on a ROOKIE contract for an overpriced center that eats into our cap space. BTW I'm not sure what you mean by saying " he Does'nt fit what we're doing" like where does he not fit? I don't know about you but I see a great chemistry between capela and Harden. BTW this capela' first year starting.

    How many games until he renders himself obsolete? Hope at least not this season or postseason.

    Hope it is a secret weapon for houston vs spurs and warriors. If they still use previous bench, it is too few people and no hope. Warriors and spurs already know how to guard and defense houston except this guy from Memphis

    Let's hope he does get some playing time when Nene rests. I don't know why he hasn't already. But then, maybe it's to keep Wiltjer and Brown company on the bench as they wait their turns too.
