So the Rockets should keep him on the bench just so a rival conference team doesn't get him? I rather have them free up space so we can add a player ourselves. I much rather see James White get a 10 day than to have Head sit there and waste space. We're talking about LUTHER HEAD here. I highly doubt hes the missing piece the Spurs need to win the title.

a contender would be stupid to sign to luther head unless you need an injury reserve that badly...

Neither do I, but if he accounts for just one game the Spurs move up in the standings, we could potentially be screwing ourselves. I acknowledge it's a slight chance, but it's not one we should be handing out. As for us signing a replacement, I doubt it, there's no one out there. If someone were to get injured, Head would be an insurance policy (is that the phrase I'm looking for?).

I like Luther Head. At one point, he was my favorite Rocket, but he couldn't play the same as he did with JVG and I can't figure out why. I would of thought he could do a lot better under Adelman. I hope he gets signed to a good team.

No he won't, Yao is doubled just about everytime he touches the ball, against teams without legit bigs sometimes even without the ball.

More like Houston would get the chance to benefit off his TOs and boneheaded plays instead of paying for them.

I sure as hell need to Tmac sucks and has played his last game here and Head has left the building.


Oh yeah to top off what I was saying earlier.......not only can Luther not dribble or pass. He turns into casper in the playoffs....so the only strength he has (shooting) can't even help you when you reach the postseason. He was a huge reason for our loss against Utah a couple of seasons ago.

Yes I do.....that's why I said Houston would get the "chance" to take advantage of Luther's ball handling...or lack there of.

Looks like the Heat are looking at Head too. I think that would be the best fit for him as far as playing time goes. He probably won't win a title but at least he should make the playoffs.

That sounds bad, Daequan Cook gets all the off-guard minutes off the bench. He would have to come in to be point for Mario? Luther will split back up point guard duties with Chris Quinn? I just don't like the sound of that.

If the Suns have any interest they really should go after this guy.
