The Rockets in the past two days should be regarded as a hot team in the basketball world, and they are also
The topic that fans talk about, because this summer they changed their usual style of thunder and rain, and began to recruit players and seek deals. They also harvested Westbrook, a big fish, and signed a few at the same time.
Value-for-money role players, and their team general manager Morey completed more than half of these operations yesterday, so that they will have greater competitiveness next season.
Yesterday, the Rockets officially announced the successful swap between Paul and Westbrook. They used Paul 2 first-round picks 2 first-round swap picks in exchange for the regular season MVP Westbrook.
Paul and Westbrook are undoubtedly the best point guards in the league today, but compared to Westbrook, Paul is also older and his state has declined very seriously. He is no longer the omnipotent Sao Paulo, and he and Harden
There are also irreconcilable contradictions between them, so fans also think that using him to trade for Westbrook is definitely worth the money. Last season, Paul was able to score 15.6 points 4.6 rebounds 8.6 assists 2 steals in the regular season.
The least is the data of 22.9 points 11.1 rebounds 10.7 assists 2 steals.
The Rockets got Rivers Jr. with a basic salary, and they have to admire Morey’s ability to pick up leaks. Last season, Rivers Jr. averaged 8.7 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.9 rebounds per game in the regular season.
He averaged 1.5 three-pointers per game. In the playoffs, he was able to score 7.4 points 1 assist 2.1 rebounds, and he was able to score 1.6 three-pointers with a shooting rate of 46%. It can be said that he is very suitable for today
The Rockets, and only used a basic salary contract, his salary next season is 2.17 million yuan, and the second year is a player option.
House was a major discovery of the Rockets in the Development League last season. He played 39 games for the team in the regular season, averaging 9.4 points 3.6 rebounds 1 assist per game, and averaged 1.9 three-pointers per game.
The rate is as high as 42%, and he played 7 games in the playoffs, averaging 4.9 points 3.1 rebounds and scoring 1.1 three-pointers. Now Morey only used a contract of 11 million
It can be said that it is very worthwhile to keep him.
Today’s Rockets have not only signed a few of them, Green and other players have also signed one after another, and the Rockets’ combat effectiveness has also risen sharply.
With Tucker in the middle, the defensive abilities of other players are not very good. The goal of the Rockets next season is definitely not just as simple as the playoffs. If they want to go further, they will inevitably have to compete with strong teams such as the Clippers and Lakers.
A decisive battle, and it will never be possible for Harden or Westbrook to face stars such as James and George.
On the other hand, in today’s market, perhaps only the first brother is the best choice. He entered the best defensive team twice in his career and won the finals MVP. Although he is 35 years old this year, his defensive ability is still very good. Last season
In the playoffs, he can contribute an average of 9.8 points 4.3 rebounds 4 assists 1.1 steals 1.1 blocks per game. Now he has been sold to the Grizzlies.
If you lose him, you will choose to trade him more. The bargaining chip is the first-round pick. If the Rockets can get him through trade or other methods, then the team has almost no shortcomings, and the hope of defeating other powerful players is great.
