I AM AN IDIOT.

The ten rules of the lord 1: I am the Lord who resides in Houston 2: Thou shall draft no other players before me 3: Thou shall make many threes 4: Thou shalt not ever doubt thy Lor

Ok, here’s some analysis.  There’s this thing called defense and he’s pretty good at it.  Defense generally translates into these things called stocks.  But there’s a lot of variance in stocks so he’s

Which team do you guys think Covington will be traded that can actually boost his fantasy production?

Any contending team that's not garbage like Minnesota lol. 

Preferably Houston - he would be crazy good there

Will he be started at the 3 and Eric Gordon to the bench?  idonno about Harden and Westbrook taking 20+ shots each ~~~

Doesn’t matter. Warriors have one and ONLY one goal next season, get back to NBA finals. Picks won’t help them with that. They don’t have cap to sign a big name In the off season. If anything, DLo + a top pick next year gets them a better player who fits that system as well. Min are stupid if they think they can entice them with what they have,

do they really need him though? With Curry and Klay they dont need guard help.

nope nope nope nope... They got DLO b/c they don't want to give Durant for free ~~~ DLO isn't welcomed in GSW.  He will be gone either this year or after this season.  Ain't going to pay him max contract to play off the bench like Schroder

wherever you go lord, i'll be with you

I still dont like him in houston. Bad enough they got harden and westbrook taking 90% of the posessions, but a combination of house eric gordon pj tucker ben mclemore are still going to be there. I dont want to expect a 9 point a couple of stocks line on 3-6 shooting from covington on a nightly basis.

There are 2 sides to this guys.

More minutes easily, 30+ guaranteed for a contending team. No pure centre, more rebounds, maybe just a slight increase but more. More 3s, with attention around russ and harden, he should find himself open for more 3s, in an offence based on shooting 3s compared to the wolves' stagnant offence. More stocks, with more minutes comes more opportunities for stocks, along with the shoot early and often mentality houston has in stretches, should mean more plays for him to defend. %s will go up, guaranteed. He will be open for 80%+ of his shots, can only mean he hits more of his open looks instead of shot chucking at the end of shotclocks like he was doing at times in Minnesota.

However, he will lose usage as westbrook and harden are almost always on the floor (at least one of them). I dont see this as a big problem as he has never been a usage/shot creator guy, but it will affect little things like points and assists, which you dont have him for anyway. He WILL get random rest days as they save him for playoffs and they will want to make sure he is healthy. 

I think this makes Covington a top 40 top 30 guy the rest of the season, my prediction will be as follows
33 MINS 12.4 PTS 7.1 RBDS 1.1 ASSTS 1.9 STLS 1.1 BLCKS 3.1 THREES 43.5% FG 80.4% FT

 

Just a reminder, this is a prediction, but i think a fairly logical one. Don't quote me on this if he ***** the bed and doesnt live up to the hype as i am self conscious and want you guys to like me. 

Praise be unto thy LORD.

Houston, we have a covington.
