    His best bet is to become a lock down defender, like Bowen. He has the physical tools for it.

    if you arent a post player i would say its almost essential. bowen, for example, can consistently hit an open 3. GT couldnt when it was 2 feet shorter.

    When Bowen first came into the league, he had no jumper whatsoever. He developed a passable shot but only from the corner.

    I think that Temp has a chance to stick though. If you have one elite skill you can survive in the NBA. Be it shooting, ball handling, shot blocking, defense, etc.

    He'll need to improve his jumper obviously but his length and defensive tenacity are great fits for the Rockets.
