I think Rafer is solid enough to be a starter for the Rocket. For a team with big guns like Houston (Tmac and Yao) Rafer is a great PG for them. I think moving Mike James out and Rafer in isn't the worst move. Mike James is an attacking guard, which Houston doesn't need. Rafer and shoot and pass the ball effectively so i look forward to Alston aiding Tmac and Yao in their offense.
