Tyreke Evans to the Hawks for 2 first round picks (the Hawks' own pick and the Nets' pick from the Joe Johnson trade).

If Sacramento is going into destroy the roster because of salary reasons, then this at least gives the Kings some return, versus that garbage deal of yesterday.

I know but they took in Tony Douglas which when you consider Brooks, Thornton, Jimmer, Tyreke, Thomas and Salmons in the mix 6 players at the PG or SG position. That makes no damn sense.

he fits well in the rockets system?

they run tons of pick and rolls, with asik as the screener, and the pf spotting up, marcus morris and patrick patterson are both shooting a career high in attempts from 3. the rockets clearly out a huge emphasis in their pfs shooting 3, something robinson hasnt shown the ability to do.

so i guess the rockets think that robinson is talented enough to justify the poor fit, becasue he definitely doesnt fit the system that they are currently running.

Well Salmons is mostly a SF but I know your point. I am sure that Coach Smart will try to play them all too.

Ppat is a stand up guy. He's pretty outspoken and isn't afraid to voice his opinion.

When Houston was going through the 7 game losing streak, he called out Harden for being too ball greedy and taking too many hero shots. He also criticised himself for not rebounding enough, which was true.

He won't pander to DMC.

yeah but he'll be great on pick and rolls for Lin and Harden, rather than always a jump shot, Lin and Harden can actually now attempt to throw alley oop passes....

true, but the way the rockets have been playing, they have always had a shooter at the 4.

if they are gonna play asik and robinson together, either robinson will have to change his game (more jumpshots), or the rockets will have to change their offensive strategy, less spacing, less 3pt shooting, and a more traditional offense.

That's more a product of the players Mchale has rather than the system Houston needs (a stretch four). If Mchale truly was targeting that kind of system, Morey wouldn't have traded away Patpat and Morris at the same time. Robinson won't be asked to take those silly three pointers (I always hated Ppat taking those 3s) and we can actually have somebody roll to the basket that isn't named Omer Stone-handed Asik.

T-Rob fits very well into the Rockets system, a large part of his major success in college was the pick n roll, the main reason other than playing time in why he struggled in the Kings was cause not a single guard can run the pick n roll. T-Rob is the perfect PF to have next to Lin or Harden, he can use his quickness on rolls to the rim and get plenty of easy buckets.

yeah but I think that's because of ppat, he never rolls in, always drifts out for the pick and pop...

When Lin runs the pick and roll with greg smith, smith always rolls to the hoop.

Now that Lin is shooting better, the spacing should be OK without a stretch four. Not a big fan of the PF taking threes anyway unless they're Dirk, and even Dirk admits he takes more twos then threes.

Is he going to start straight away for the Rockets?

Who else do they have at the 4 spot?

Houston isn't going to win a title running their current system. They ran that offense because that's the players they had. I bet it actually drives McHale crazy watching his team chuck all these 3's... but they simply don't have a post threat.

they actually thought that they were potentially putting a play-off team together by signing all them role players to go along with the young talent. instead, the kings are looking like the old rockets (like the suns), with demarcus cousins.

They might not win a championship but it is making the owner happy.

Les has always wanted the Rockets to be a running team, he's been pushing Morey hard to make this a running team and he finally got his wish this season. I definitely don't expect a championship with this system until we develop/sign/trade for a legit post player, but at least it is fun to watch.
