Rockets GM Daryl Morey had high praise for newly acquired PF Thomas Robinson.
There's no doubt that Robinson is going to quickly start and play a major role on the Rockets. They've traded away their starting power forward (Patrick Patterson) and his backup (Marcus Morris). "For us, it was obviously for Thomas Robinson," Morey said. "He is a very high-upside guy, plays with high energy, runs the floor, can rebound. He's athletic. He is a guy that has potential to grow into a top-level player." Robinson is worth a speculative add while we see if his offensive game can improve with a real role. He was playing just 15.9 minutes in Sacramento, but projects for something around 26-29 in Houston.
