Rockets' McHale: Josh Smith finding comfort zone with second unit
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/9/15) Rockets coach Kevin McHale told reporters he's still trying to make forward Josh Smith comfortable with his new role, according to the Houston Chronicle. The Pistons waived Smith on Dec. 22 before he signed with the Rockets before Christmas Day.
Smith started four of his first five games in Houston, averaging 5.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.0 steals while shooting 29.0 percent from the field while in the starting lineup. He has come off the bench over his last four games, averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 boards and 1.8 assists while shooting 57.1 percent from the field over that span.
"The biggest thing is about getting him comfortable," McHale said prior to Thursday's win over the Knicks. "You can’t play basketball when you're thinking and funky. He has to get where he's comfortable. He felt more comfortable with that second team.
"I didn't know Josh. Really, honestly, he’s been great. I've really enjoyed him. He has a high basketball IQ, talking to him. He's done everything I've asked him to do. I've sat him down and said, 'Okay, are you more comfortable coming off the bench? Are you more comfortable starting? Where are you at, because this is about you being comfortable, not me being comfortable?' I just sit … over on that bench. I don’t have to be comfortable."
F Josh Smith ready to roll with Rockets on Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/26/14) What was expected is now official - the Rockets have signed forward Josh Smith. He will be in uniform Friday night against fellow Western Conference power Memphis.
Smith has gone from the NBA outhouse to at least near the penthouse. He was dispatched by the lowly Pistons for underachieving and that team's commitment to a youth movement. But he is still averaging 13.1 points, 7.2 rebounds and a career-high 4.7 assists per game this season.

Report: Rockets looking to clear roster spot for Smith via trade
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) The Rockets are shopping players from the bottom third of their roster Wednesday to clear a spot for small forward Josh Smith, ESPN reports.
Smith committed to joining the Rockets early Wednesday and passed through waivers later in the day, but now the team needs to make some room on the roster to bring him in. The candidates to move include Clint Capela, Isaiah Canaan, Tarik Black, Nick Johnson and Joey Dorsey.
Smith is expected to join the starting lineup once he's ready to roll. He averaged 13.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 steals in 28 game with the Pistons.
|From a per-game perspective, Josh Smith didn't have a bad year. For most players, averaging 16.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game would be a career year, especially if you added 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks on top. Unfortunately, that was a nearly across-the-board drop for Smith, who also put together one of his least-efficient seasons ever as he attempted to make the switch to small forward. Smith shot just 41.9 percent from the field and 26.4 percent from three-point range, while shooting 3.4 times per game, a career-high mark. The addition of Stan Van Gundy should help goose the Pistons offense, and there has been talk of him spending more time as a power forward in the new offense. Unfortunately, the Pistons' frontcourt remains as crowded as it was last season, so many of the same problems will still exist. You might not feel great about it, but Smith will be worth targeting in the early-middle rounds on Draft Day.
