The Houston Rockets will have a new head coach in 2011-12

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Tuesday 19 April 2011 at 6:59 pm

The Houston Rockets have decided not to bring back 64-year old head coach Rick Adelman for the 2011-12 season. Adelman led the Rockets to a 43-39 record (52.4%) in the 2010-11 season in which they missed the playoffs for the second straight year. Adelman was the Rockets’ head coach for four years and he compiled a 193-135 (58.8%) record during the regular season and he was 9-10 (47.4%) in the playoffs. The Rockets are going to be hard pressed to find a better coach than Adelman, so I’m not so sure I like this move for them.

Patrick Patterson turned in a solid rookie year for the Houston Rockets

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Rookie Reports by alleyoop on Friday 15 April 2011 at 8:41 am

22-year old power forward Patrick Patterson turned in a solid rookie year for the Rockets. He played in 52 games (6 starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 16.7 minutes, 6.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Patterson shot 55.8% from the floor last year which was outstanding. The Rockets were very deep in the frontcourt which limited Patterson’s P.T. in 2010-11. But, I think it’s going to get harder to keep him on the bench, especially if he improves his game more.

Blogged under Big Rockets News,Bloglockers,Comings & Goings,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Tuesday 12 April 2011 at 10:20 am

Cousin played in 4 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Utah Jazz and he averaged 4.5 minutes, 1.0 point and 0.8 rebounds per game. He also played in 46 games (45 starts) for the Austin Toros of the NBDL and he averaged 30.5 minutes, 14.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.1 blocked shots per game. To make room on the roster for Cousin, the Rockets have waived 24-year old forward DeMarre Carroll. Carroll played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 2.2 minutes per game and he didn’t score but had 2 assists. He played in 12 games (0 starts) overall this year for the Grizzlies & Rockets and he is averaging 4.2 minutes, 0.8 points, 0.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. Carroll was part of the Rockets’ return in the Shane Battier deal.

22-year old small forward Chase Budinger is playing well as of late. In his last five games, Budinger is averaging 35.0 minutes, 12.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. He is also shooting 47.4% from three point range in those five contests which is pretty darn good.

Budinger has done a solid job for the Rockets this year, especially after the deal that sent Shane Battier to Memphis which put him into the starting lineup.
