Rockets Pass on McCants

Due to injury concerns, Houston won’t be signing Rashad McCants after all: “Sources close to the situation say Beck has been lined up to fill the vacancy in Houston’s training camp created when the Rockets elected not to go through with their intended signing of Rashad McCants. McCants is carrying an abdominal injury that limits his immediate availability, so Houston has opted to sign Romel Beck — who played for San Antonio’s summer-league team — to a non-guaranteed deal.”

    1st! and i dont care about this post.

  • phil

    wow another injury in the rockets circles….big suprise

  • Hussman25

    Where is Ed Stefanski (Sixers) when we need him… Even if Rashad is Injured, he is def an upgrade over a streaky Willie Green… Consider the move Ed, a non guaranteed deal is low risk, but in the new offense, this could be definately HIGH reward!

    Sucks that he has an injury already. He is definitely underrated.

    I agree hussman…the Sixers are in DIRE need of perimeter shooting…

    Damn, I keep hoping this kid will break out, but its starting to look like its just not happening.

    NICE! Romel Beck has some nice skills, this is awesome; he’ll flat out ball in Houston. LET’S GO ROCKETS!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    I feel bad for Rashad though.

  • kedrock

    As a long suffering wolves fan, I am not surprised. The only obstacle between McCants’ and success is McCants. What a waste of talent.

  • Orlando Woolridge

    How do you mean that, kedrock? I’ve heard about his attitude coming into the league, but is there more to it?

  • tavoris

    inquiring minds want to know

  • Max7

    Always been an absolute waste. Maybe in Europe things will be different.

    I think kedrock was referring to the injuries he always has. Refer to T-mac.

  • J-City

    Mccants looks like Jamie Foxx

    Yeah,niQ, I was talking about the injuries and the maddening inconsistency. Shoddy reminds me of the pickup game stars of my youth, drop 34 pts one game, then go 0-12 the next and no d, ever. He has the talent, but no consistency.

    there is no truth to the rumor stating that the abdominal injury is actually a broken heart from khloe marrying lamar. or maybe there is.

    @Gametime Weezy: lolroflmao! Seriousllllly lolz. Rashard had his chance, but chose Houston over us, so we chose Flip Murray over him

    Another Timberwolves first-round bust.

    McCants gasses up Khloe, then passes her to Odom.
