I hope MCW can turn his career around and overcome his shoulder injury. His rookie season was probably the best NBA season by a former non-Melo SU player in the past 15-20 years, but his scoring average has decreased every single year over the past 6 seasons.
Not sure if he'll be able to carve out a role there, but this is the first time in his career that he'll hypothetically be surrounded by shooters, which is really the only way he could have realistically hoped to find success in the NBA.
Not an ideal situation with the way the Rockets stagger minutes as he'll almost never be able to get on the court without a dominant ball handler next to him. Whatever though, Keep getting those checks for as long as possible.
I agree but the little bit I have watched him the last few years - he can switch, but he can't stay with people. He's odd - there are moments where you say "now that is MCW" but there are many moments when you say "MCW - What"
He looked like he would have been able to stick after his rookie season. Four teams later and he's taking a one-year minimum deal. He's been hurt a lot, but not having a jump shot has done more damage than any injury.
Ideal fit for Houston they get taller guard next to Harden when Paul sits and won’t take shots and on D will play the guy that Harden oles against.
You can play one nonshooter when you have Harden/Gordon types on the floor.
