Rolling out a potential lineup with an average height of 6-4, can the Houston Rockets win a championship without a presence in the paint?
After a move was being rumored for weeks, the Houston Rockets made an interesting trade prior to the deadline. The Rockets acquired forward Robert Covington after sending center Clint Capela to the Atlanta Hawks. It was a four-team trade involving the Atlanta Hawks, Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets.
Many questioned this move for the Rockets, being that they don’t have a starting-caliber center on the roster after trading Capela. At 6-7, Robert Covington would be the tallest player in the starting lineup if he starts.
Covington is a great addition to the Rockets due to his defensive presence and ability to hit the three ball, which is music to Coach Mike D’Antoni’s ears. So far this season, Robert is averaging almost 13 points and six rebounds per game to go along with 43.5 percent from the field and 34.6 percent shooting from behind the arc.
The Houston Rockets also acquired power forward Jordan Bell in the trade. Bell has shown that he can play some meaningful minutes for a championship team, just as he previously did for the Golden State Warriors not that long ago.
