Exciting stuff. Any Raptors/Mavs fans know if he's capable of manning the 5?

His per-minute stats are nice. If he had 42 fouls to give, he could play an entire game.

I went to this guy's high school. Dude was a MONSTER. Those were some crazy years at St. Augustine. Glad to see he's in the league again.

I don't think he can play the 5...he's an atheltic 4.

He doesn't really have an offensive game and he's not that great at defence but he's a great energy guy. He'll get you rebounds. putbacks, dunks and hustle. A real nice guy too...I wish he could've stayed with the raptors.

Nice high energy player for the Rockets.

Good signing, I was wondering who would pick him up. And I dont think he is made for the 5 spot...but they might try him there.

Good energy player but has low basketball I.Q.

Hes not a good post defender but he can get you rebounds and provide energy

Not to mention he has little-to-no game on offense, except for the dunk. Most of his Offensive Rebounds were on his own misses.

adds some needed hustle that anderson might not have. hope the guy has a big rebounding season off the bench, could be a v. important piece.

I remember when he was with the Spurs for a little bit. He provides crazy energy off the Bench. Real hustle player who can get rebounds and putbacks. He really can't play Center. His Offensive and Defensive Game is kind of low.

He should get around 6-10 minutes a night.

Max contract I assume?

All lame jokes aside, he is a great energy play like others have said and really good team/glue player. Definately a fan favourite. His nickname is Stub, because his favourite player is KG (the Big Ticket). If thats not enough reason to love him I don;t know what is.
