I've been surprised with Budinger, summer league or not, he's shooting a high percentage. Still wonder about his defense though. Dorsey has been a beast on the boards, but he's still too short to play C and we have PFs a plenty.
True he's too short to play C, but he'll be on the Rockets roster one way or another. He rebounds well, plus he's add some good blocks, including one on Randolph...
Dorsey,Budinger & Taylor, I think are locks for the team. White should be worried at this point...but because of team commitment to him should be ok.
Here are my current starting 5 & 10 others:
Center (TBD) I'm hoping for David Andersen!
McGrady (will be in starting lineup i/o Battier once healthy, if he remains a Rocket)
Surely there will be some surprises here, but for now thats the best I can come up with everything really depends on who we acquire for a center. I for one would like to find another scorer to play SG & have a fresh Battier come off the bench!
Maybe White or Taylor could fill that, but I honestly doubt coach lets either of these 2 young players into the starting role.
