Rockets's Daryl Morey expects big things from Eric Gordon off the bench

Houston Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon was referred to by general manager Daryl Morey as a "super sub off the bench".

What It Means:

With Patrick Beverley and James Harden as the starting guards in Houston, it's no surprise that Gordon will be coming off the bench. However, with Morey this high on him, the 27-year-old appears poised to play a big role for the Rockets.

Gordon finished last season ranking a disappointing 99th with a -1.9 nERD, while averaging 15.2 points in 32.9 minutes per game. His 13.5 player efficiency rating was the second-lowest of his career, but he shot a .565 true shooting percentage and posted a career-best 10.7 percent turnover rate.
