Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Danuel House Jr.

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Danuel House Jr.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports We’ll see if I can keep the profanity to a minimum I know there’s a big COVID tester elephant in the room here, but let’s start out by objectively breaking down Danuel House Jr.’s 2019-20 season. We’ll get to what happened during the Western Conference semifinals, but let’s try to be fair early on. Danuel House was a big part of Houston’s plans this season and beyond. After giving House his first real shot last season, the Rockets were able to lock down the University of Houston/Texas A&M product to a 3-year, $11.1 million extension. That...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Tyson Chandler

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The one piece that defies small ball. Tyson Chandler Recap: Chandler joined the Rockets last offseason as a veteran looking to guide Clint Capela and make a spot start here or there. After missing the playoffs with the Suns and Lakers for the past four seasons, he was also looking for a little more playoff success than in his previous two stops. Chandler played in just 26 games for the Rockets, averaging 1.3 points per game. He only stepped onto the court once during the bubble games as Oklahoma City’s “player of choice” to shoot two free throws...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: DeMarre Carroll

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: DeMarre Carroll

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports A look back at DeMarre Carroll’s tenure with the Rockets. DeMarre Carroll Recap: Carroll signed with the Rockets in mid-February after being bought out by the Spurs. The team brought him to Houston to provide some depth in the frontcourt and improve the defense for the small-ball era. However, Carroll played sparingly, seeing action in just six games before the suspension of the season and just five games during the seeding games and playoffs in Orlando. Carroll averaged 6 points per game and 2.7 rebounds per game in nine appearances for the Rockets. 2021...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Luc Mbah a Moute

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Luc Mbah a Moute

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Not much to recap. Luc Mbah a Moute Recap: Mbah a Moute played just three games for the Houston Rockets this season, so there’s not much to report here. Already familiar with the Houston system, the Rockets brought him back into the fold for wing depth when Thabo Sefolosha decided to opt out of the bubble due to concerns around COVID-19. Mbah a Moute averaged 1.7 points points per game in just 25 total minutes of action for the Rockets, and he hasn’t played any meaningful court time since the 2018 season. 2021 Outlook: Mbah a Moute’s contract is up,...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Thabo Sefolosha

Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Designated Friend, fighter for justice. Thabo Sefalosha Recap: Thabo Sefolosha played a role somewhat familiar to Rockets fans, Designated Friend, as he essentially began his career with Russell Westbrook and James Harden in Oklahoma City, and will perhaps end it with them as well. This season may mark the end of the road for the 14 year NBA veteran, as he saw his minutes decline, and he chose not to participate after the season restart in the bubble. Some reports have it that the Swiss national Thabo Sefolosha opted not to rejoin the Rockets in the...

Replacing Mike D’Antoni: Three candidates the Rockets should consider

Photo by Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via With Mike D’Antoni out, the Houston Rockets must find the right coach to help steer their franchise in the right direction. Everything was good just four years ago — promising more than ever. Sitting between GM Daryl Morey and former team-owner Leslie Lee Alexander was Mike D’Antoni. Dressed in a navy blue suit with a red tie, D’Antoni was the new kid on the block in Houston as Morey and Alexander introduced the then 65-year-old as the 13th head coach in Houston Rockets history. At times throughout the press conference, there were some...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: Bruno Caboclo

Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/ Bruno Caboclo’s season was once again plagued by the lack of opportunity — this time with the Houston Rockets.    Bruno Caboclo Recap: He remains one of the most attractive prospects in the league today. Standing 6’9” with a 7’7” wingspan, Caboclo has the potential to blossom into one of the league’s best two-way players. The only problem, Caboclo has never received the proper amount of playing time to showcase his potential — a predicament the 24-year-old Brazilian native has been in since 2014. He started receiving consistent minutes as...

Rockets 2020 Player Recaps: David Nwaba

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Well, not quite a recap. David Nwaba There’s not much to recap on guy who didn’t play a single minute of action this season for the Houston Rockets, but when the team signed Nwaba to a two-year minimum free agent deal back in June, he was already out for the year with an Achilles tear. This was a signing with an eye on the future, as Nwaba seems to fit in exactly with what the Rockets look for in a wing player. He’s 6’7” with a 7’1” wingspan, meaning he can guard several positions. He’s an athlete, plays solid defense, and is developing a...

My arms raise in joy as Russell Westbrook steals a season-ending inbounds pass away from Steven Adams. I imagine a 2020 championship banner being raised in Houston, until reality sets in: the Rockets must now prepare for battle against the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers. The analysts on ESPN’s post coverage show confirm my worries. The Rockets need a true big man, someone the rest of the...

Festivus Has Come Early This Year for Rockets Fans | Photo by Sarah L. Voisin/The The Washington Post via The Airing of Grievances Festivus has come early this year. The Houston Rockets have again exited the NBA playoffs in the second round. Fortunately they’re in good company, with NBA Finals favorites Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks also booking a ticket out of The Bubble earlier than predicted by most. One funny fact about the annual (or perpetual) lambasting of James Harden this playoffs is, he was far from the worst of the superstars ousted from playoff contention. ...
