He's an okay defender. Not good enough to justify the ****** parts of his game.
Sterling Brown is a guy I wanted us to draft.Not a buyout guy but Sterling Brown has been really good for Houston. Shooting the **** out of the ball. Good rebounding wing. I'm not sure how good his overall defense is. He is tagged with the 3 and D label. Houston is much better defensively with him on the court but there is a lot that factors into that. Houston has had a good defense.
He is on a one year min deal. Houston is likely ready to fold up shop pretty soon and tank the effs outta this B. I don't think they have bird rights because its a one year deal. That'd be a guy I think we could nab for a second or a prospect and a second... or we likely have a trade exception and could send some of Ryan's money to Fertitta in the deal.
I think he'd be an upgrade over Niang once he gets up to speed.
