    Default Luther Head waived

    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] on Saturday waived guard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Head had averaged 4.8 points in 22 games this season, most of which he has missed with a right foot injury. He will be eligible for the postseason if picked up by another team, thanks to his release coming prior to March 1.
    According to the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets tried to trade Head prior to the trade deadline earlier this month, but the injury tempered the interest in him.
    “Luther has been a great player and representative for the Rockets’ organization,” Houston general manager Daryl Morey told the Chronicle. “When it became clear he wasn’t going to see minutes in our rotation, he maintained his professional demeanor and continued to work hard every day.”
    A first-round pick out of Illinois in 2005, Head has averaged 8.8 points in his three NBA seasons.

    Maybe he can add some depth to our roster.

    He's small if he plays the 2 spot but would be like a Ben Gordon type....fast and with a deadly outside shot that can help our back court.

    If you can get him cheap...go for it.

    Why bother. He wouldn't play. We have too many players fighting for time as is. I'd rather get some d league stud for cheap who MAY eventually be decent and let him practice with the team. A 7 footer practicing with our squad may help us not get blocked so much when it comes to real games.

    I remember there was someone on the forum who claimed Head was a "good" PG.
