Both are short term rentals.

Nope. No chance at all. One of his weaknesses.

His career average is around 65% ft, his best was last season at 70% in limited minutes.

The big question is......what happens once Capela comes back? Does he realistically still see minutes >20? If so, is he worth a roster spot at the point?

When is Capela due back? or expected back i guess. thanks 

I believe he is expected back the week of all star break.. so I can see them giving him those extra days rest so he’s ready post ASB.

Geez, if this dude could hit treys, he would be dangerous! Shame he was riding the pine and wasted three years of his career.

What this tell me is that they made a mistake paying Capela. Basically any big with decent enough motor will shine with Harden.

Nope, the real mistake was paying Paul. Don’t let Faried’s momentary production blind you to how valuable Capela is to this team.

does anyone think Faried will have value after Capela returns?

 

 

I think he’ll come in to spell Capela. Minutes might hover around high teens to low twenties but probably not enough production to hold in standard leagues.

No chance of him moving to PF when Capela gets back?

I’m wondering the same. Isn’t it PJ Tucker in that spot? Surely, if Faried can show between now and then that he’s worth his fair share of minutes, sliding in at PF doesn’t sound too bad. I think the main issue is that he doesn’t space the floor.

No chance the Rockets play him at PF with Capela back. Their bread & butter is iso with Harden or Paul & constsnt switching. They want max spacing & don't want to clog up the paint for Harden's drives and CP3's midrange game. If Faried could somehow show he has a reliable corner 3 which is improbable, that's when he has a chance to play 4 with Capela.
