Luc Mbah A Moute Works Out For Rockets

Former Rockets forward Luc Mbah a Moute had a workout for the team yesterday, tweets Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

The 33-year-old veteran played for Houston during the 2017/18 season, averaging 7.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in 61 games. He signed with the Clippers before the start of last season, but was only able to play in four games because of a knee injury that required surgery last March. He was waived in April just before the start of the playoffs.

Mbah a Moute has played 11 NBA seasons, spending most of his time with the Bucks and Clippers. He is a defensive specialist who shoots 33.5% from 3-point range for his career.

Houston has a full roster, so someone would have to be waived before Mbah a Moute could be signed.

        Definitely. He just need to be as good as green from 3. Let’s hope he’s been at least shooting around and not just laying around.

  2. Rockets really out here taking all the top 3 and D forwards from 2016.
    Moute Carroll Covington Tucker…
    Just missing Ariza and Aminu

    After tonight’s deplorable performance against the Clippers, they should consider signing LMAM, assuming he’s healthy. Cut Sefolosha to make room.

    This rumor and the apparent need for a has-been that is mostly going to be good for dirtyball suggests that small-ball does not work like hoped.

    Not sure if there’s a problem there. If Tucker or Harden is not enthusiastic about their role in it, and I am suspicious, then that is more than MooBah can fix. It is naturally hard on everyone to play without a center.

      How would it suggest that? They signed another 3 and d guy, not a center. It sounds like they’re staying true to small ball. Maybe unfortunately so..
      Yeah, Luc won’t move the needle, but I wouldn’t think it’s about Harden’s role, but you might have a point with PJ. He’s a good soldier, but I don’t think they accounted for or could account for the psychological impact of playing small ball and being pecked on in the same area time and again.
      There’s options at center that might make an appearance next year.

    They should consider starting Jeff Green and moving House to the second unit. Then Green would be the starting 5, Tucker goes back to the 4, and Covington at the 3. They would still have House and DeMarre Carroll coming off the bench as backups in the front court.

      They finally did what I suggested, but not until the 2nd half against the Hornets. Maybe we will get to see Green starting against the Magic alongside Russ, Harden, Covington, and Tucker. Then House could come off the bench with Rivers, Carroll, and McLemore.
