@  txtdo1411 : (20 December 2014 - 05:10 PM) I disagree Cooper. He is a fairly good handler and passer, so I could see him cutting into Canaan's minutes with the second unit.
@  Cooper : (20 December 2014 - 12:24 AM) Ideally shved isn't going to play a whole lot
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:22 AM) Philly has become the official dumpster of the nba
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:20 AM) Giving Rockets lots of options. Terry and Shved can play together when Harden and Bev are resting...
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:18 AM) He's 6'6 and can handle the ball
@  jorgeaam : (20 December 2014 - 12:18 AM) Yes, Shved is probably playing PG/SG
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:15 AM) Is Shved going to play back up PG? Would that also mean Papa gets more time at the 4?
@  YaoMan : (20 December 2014 - 12:04 AM) Shved is coming to the Rockets too???
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 11:37 PM) Alexey Shved has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Ronny Turiaf./ Rockets waive G/F Francisco Garcia.
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 11:37 PM) There we go
@  thenit : (19 December 2014 - 10:16 PM) I think Morey wanted Brewer from the get go. But he got them mixed up last season and got the wrong one.
@  YaoMan : (19 December 2014 - 09:43 PM) With Brewer, the Rox can have superior defense all around. Imagine Brewer, Ariza, Howard and Bev pestering the heck out of opposing offenses...
@  Mario Peña : (19 December 2014 - 08:32 PM) This is good news and hopefully Brewer slips right in.
@  YaoMan : (19 December 2014 - 08:04 PM) I like Troy but Brewer will definitely help the Rox
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:03 PM) Turiaf is out for the year, so he is definitely going somewhere else, Rockets not done trading
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:02 PM) Here's another link http://sports.yahoo....-194852845.html
@  Cooper : (19 December 2014 - 08:02 PM) brewer for daniels possibly with turiaf going somewhere
@  jorgeaam : (19 December 2014 - 08:01 PM) Along with Brewer is Turiaf, traded Troy Daniels and the Rockets must waive somebody

So, per Feigen, the Rockets have cut Scott Machado to make room for Patrick Beverley.

Beverley was the Eurocup MVP (which is the second tier of European Basketball competition - kind of the like the Europa League vs the Champions League) with Spartak Moscow. General consensus that I'm hearing is that he is a much more NBA-ready player than Machado (which I guess you'd expect given that he's got 4-5 years of European basketball experience under his belt). You don't get to be an MVP even in a second tier competition unless you can score and presumably dole out assists as well.

It's a shame to get rid of Machado, but I don't think Morey would have done it unless he'd seen something in Beverley that he thought was more promising. Hopefully we'll get to see what it is that's made him attractive enough to bring in.

morey has done and outstanding job spotting talent once we decided we were going to go young. lets hope he has found another piece to the puzzle. the rockets signed him to a 3 year deal so they must like him a lot.

This move addresses one of the Rockets' weaknesses, which is relying on Douglas as the backup PG (Douglas is better suited as a backup combo guard). Also, I suspect that the Rockets will offer Machado a D-League contract if his contract passes through waivers. But my question is whether this move indicates that the Rockets are losing interesting in Sergio Llull?

Llull signed quite a long contract with his ACB team, so it's very unlikely that he's ever going to cross the Atlantic. Suspect the Rockets have put that one on the backburner.

Feigen has been talking about the Rockets' interest in Beverley for a few weeks - I think about the same time that he got word they were going for James Anderson. So it's been floating around for a little while.

One thing that's funny is that everytime the Rockets sign some random guy like this whether it be from the second round or wherever, I never even bother to put up an article about it because I assume he'll suck. And then most of the time it turns out to be a contributor.

Second point: this goes along with the "do the Rockets have the deepest bench" thread...Morey's forte is finding those role player guys. Now that he has his core in Harden-Lin-Asik-Parsons, it will be exciting/interesting watching him fill around with other young pieces.

the guy stripped Jamal Crawford while he was performing his famous crossover, knocked down a 3, and played with great energy. He didn't even look nervous at all, as if he's been playing since the start of the season. I'm not on the train because it's one game in garbage time, but we should keep an eye on Patrick Beverley.

On consecutive defensive plays, he ripped Crawford's crossover and then forced him into a jumped pass. I was extremely impressed by his defense.

I'm going to post video of those plays later today when I get time. But if that pops up somewhere else beforehand, please post that in here.

Like Rahat, I was highly impressed with his defense. In addition, I was surprised with his handle on the ball. I've become accustomed to holding my breath while non-regulars handle the ball, but Beverley looked rock-solid with his dribble. While the appearance was brief, I was certainly impressed.
