Rockets Trade Reaction & Nonsense
The Houston Rockets have officially traded away Clint Capela and if you are also confused about the trade you are not alone. Does it make sense that PJ Tucker or Danuel House Jr is the starting center, not it doesn’t. The Rockets’ wasted no time and started making deals in the trade deadline, so here we are.
The trade went down like this, 12 players & 4 teams:
- Robert Covington
- Jordan Bell
- Clint Capela
- Nene (Be honest, did you know he was still in the league?)
- Malik Beasley
- Juancho Hernangomez
- Jarred Vanderbilt
- Evan Turner
- Hawks 1st round pick (via Nets)
- Shabazz Napier
- Keita Bates-Diop
- Gerald Green (injured, will be waived)
- Noah Vonleh
- Rockets 1st round draft pick
Rockets’ Reaction – the Rockets got better in the sense of a perimeter wing that can shoot 3s and can switch 1-5. Gave up a solid rebounder and rim protector. The Rockets’ getting better with a small line up does not make up for the defense that they just gave away. With how quick the Rockets gave away Capela, it must mean that they are not done making moves. The Rockets traded Capela away, with a backup plan already in mind.
Hawks’ Reaction – the Hawks definitely by picking up an experience defender/ rim protector to plug in and make up for all the defensive liabilities that come with Trae Young on the floor. In my opinion, this move show a commitment to Young offensive schemes. Hawks are winner in the trade.
Wolves’ Reaction: the real and only question here what is going to happen with Karl Anthony Towns. Till then, the Wolves are in limbo.
Nuggets Reaction: the Nuggets are winner here because they didn’t really give up anything and they got a draft pick. Giving up Malik Beasley is not so bad when you think about the all the progress that Michael Porter Jr. has been making.
What do you guys think about the trade?
