Great changes have taken place in the lineup of Houston Rockets this summer. One of the disappointments is that the Rockets sold usman Garba, Josh Christopher and Ty Washington. Their development this year was daunting and almost wasted.
Among them, usman Garba also accepted an interview with the media after joining the Thunder, revealing that he especially wanted to go to the Thunder when he was in the draft. The former Rockets center complained that he didn’t get enough chances, and Thunder is a team that suits him very well.
As the No.23 rookie in the first round of 2021, Ousmane Garouba was plagued by injuries in his first season without playing, averaging only 2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. In the Rockets, his overall performance is not satisfactory. However, Osman Garba represented Spain in last year’s men’s basketball European Cup. At that time, his overall performance was excellent. Osman Garba also served as the main rotation inside player to help Spain win the men’s basketball European Cup. However, after returning to the NBA, Osman Garba could not win the trust of then head coach Steve Cyrus, so he had to play as a substitute and his playing time was scarce. Usman Garba has been in a low state all season. He averaged 3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. His data is average, but Osman Garba’s efficiency is high, especially his defensive potential.
However, the Rockets seem to have no patience to train usman Garba, who was easily sold cheaply in the offseason and finally came to the Thunder. Osman Garba said that he had already made contact with Thunder coach Daniolt and general manager Presti, and believed that they would benefit a lot from Thunder’s tactical system, and the two sides reached an agreement on many issues.
In addition, Garba, usman, like the Rockets, the Thunder also looks very competitive. Shea Kirghiz-Alexander, Josh Giddy, Chet Holmgren and Rugenzdort are all young, and I believe we are a team. Usman Garba admired them very much. However, even usman Garba expressed his hope to be selected by the Thunder, which already has Chet Holmgren, Robinson Earle, Poksevsky and Davidson Bertain, so the situation has not changed at all. For usman Garba, staying in Oklahoma City is not easy.
