Houston added Lin & Asik. Two impressive FA. They might have overpaid on Asik but still two good young pieces to build around. They also were able to have 3 first round draft picks in a deep class. Terrence Jones, Jeremy Lamb, and Royce White were all impressive in their summer league action. That is 5 young talented pieces Houston added during the offseason. Some solid pieces to at least build around and Aldridge is impressed by that.
I don't find either to be all that impressive. I like Asik but he's not great or anything and Lin imo is overrated. Both were overpayed.
