McHale Wants Rockets To 'Play Bigger'
Kevin McHale wants the Houston Rockets to add more size in their starting lineup.
"I think we've got to play bigger," McHale said. "We played small especially after trading Patrick Patterson. A couple of guys stepped up and tried to play the four spot. We're going to have to play bigger, but one of the young bigs we have, I think one of those guys will definitely emerge, maybe a couple of them."
The Rockets tried several options at the power forward position, including Donatas Motiejunas and Greg Smith, with Thomas Robinson and Terrence Jones getting time as well.
In the playoffs against Oklahoma City, McHale elected to go with a smaller starting lineup that didn't feature a traditional power forward.
"Now, we need a summer of growth," McHale said. "I think Terrence Jones, Thomas Robinson, Donatas Motiejunas, one of those guys, or maybe a couple of them will have to step up and play well."
