Q&A with Patrick Beverly

http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/qa-patrick-beverley

Beverly has been working hard, and doing it in Houston. That's an important thing to remember when reading these offseason things, because you can hear about how player x is putting in tons of work, and not hear anything about player y, and get the impression player y isn't working hard, when actually he's working even harder than x, but he's just not doing it at the team practice facilities, so the media guys don't see it.

Beverly has put on several pounds of muscle to help him defender larger point guards, and says he's taking it upon himself to be the defensive captain of the team. We'll see how that goes; it think it's hard to tell who will take what role till they've been on the floor together awhile.

He also wants to look to score more, but we'll see how that goes also; at the moment it appears to me that he's the 5th option--Harden, Dwight, Parsons, Lin being in front of him--and while it won't surprise me if he moves up, I won't be surprised if one of our young Pfs moves ahead of him instead.

Beverly says he's ready to do whatever the team needs him to do, whether that as a spark of energy off the bench, or something else. He's been impressed with Reggie Williams, says Reggie is a great scorer. Unfortunately for Reggie, more scoring isn't what we most need, though it sure doesn't hurt.

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
