I can’t blame Rockets fans for wanting to get excited about their new acquisition, but the fact of the matter is that Jordan Hamilton is probably a below-average role player at this point in his career. Here’s a list of things he won’t be giving you:
-10 points per game
-Savvy playmaking ability
-Access to his prized collection of 70’s progressive/stoner rock vinyl
-Drug parties in his basement – he still hasn’t found a reliable dealer in the Houston area
-Ability to take over games
Still, he provides wing depth that the Rockets sorely needed, so the trade was a positive for them. Morey once again proving he is the smartest GM in the league.
