Chase Budinger will have to fight to keep his starting job for the Houston Rockets in 2011-12

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews by alleyoop on Sunday 27 November 2011 at 8:49 am

23-year old Chase Budinger moved into the starting lineup at small forward for the Rockets after they dealt Shane Battier to the Grizzlies at the trade deadline last year. He played decent ball and he’s going to have to keep it up to hold off first round pick Marcus Moore for P.T. Budinger played in 78 games (22 starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 22.3 minutes, 9.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. He has now played in 152 games (26 starts) in his first two years in the NBA and he is averaging 21.2 minutes, 9.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. 21-year old rookie Marcus Moore came to the Rockets in the 1st round of the NBA Draft last June. He has a really solid upside and he is going to be pushing Budinger for P.T. right away. 24-year old Terrence Williams has a lot of talent but the light has yet to go on over his head. Williams played in 21 games (0 starts) for the Nets & Rockets last year and he averaged 13.8 minutes, 5.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He has now played in 99 games (9 starts) in his first two years in the NBA and he is averaging 20.7 minutes, 7.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. 28-year old Mike Harris is also around. He played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 4.0 minutes, 2.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. Harris has now played in 34 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 8.0 minutes, 2.0 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.

The Houston Rockets are rock solid at shooting guard for the 2011-12 season

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews by alleyoop on Thursday 24 November 2011 at 11:19 am

The Rockets are going to get a lot of points from their shooting guards in 2011-12. 28-year old Kevin Martin is a pure offensive player. He played in 80 games (all starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 32.5 minutes, 23.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Martin has now played in 435 games (347 starts) in his NBA career and he is averaging 31.2 minutes, 18.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Look for him to have another big year for the Rockets in 2011-12. 26-year old Courtney Lee is a very solid backup who can also fill in at small forward if needed. Lee played in 81 games (1 start) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 21.3 minutes, 8.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. He has now played in 229 games (109 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 26.4 minutes, 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game.
