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.

 

Totally agree

Seeing as most people do not see him at the 4 with Capela, would he at least be the backup C and force NeNe out of rotation?

any possibility Faried can play the 4 when Capela is back? Double lob city?

I’m with you. Doesn’t feel right dropping this man. But with many free agents around its hard not to.

Won't happen because of the spacing. He will probably play around 18-20 mins from the bench when Capela returns.

Agree with above.  I traded Faried in a package yesterday while he still has value.  Once Capella is back Faried will play the Nerlens Noel role.

Yes, no way he can keep getting more than 20-22 mins per night. I guess the minutes will be going down as Capela gets more up to speed. If they are careful with Capela and Faried gets 20 mins per night he can still put up numbers though, but not for standard leagues.

Capela is targeting 1st game after all star break. So I wouldn’t hesitate to drop Faried for the hot adds now if you think he can’t exist with capela

Anybody preemptively dropping Faried for an FA/waiver that's hot right now?

Say what!? Faried starting tonight! Hitting treys and all that! And it might stick for the long haul. Only thing missing from his game is treys. If he is on your wires.. RUN! Think that win over G.S. is what did it..

Kinda funny when you scroll up and see how we all believed HOU wouldn’t play Faried and Capella together. Just goes to show you we don’t know crap what these coaches will do and swear our diagnosis is gospel sometimes.  Kinda hate I dropped this dude cause I swore he was going to lose his value when CC came back. Smh
