With Pat Beverley cleared to start participating in Rockets scrimmages, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said Tuesday he expects Beverley to also start games in the backcourt next to James Harden. The emphasis on Harden handling the ball to start possessions could have opened the way for Eric Gordon to start next to Harden. But D’Antoni said he would still like Beverley’s defense on the ball and 3-point shooting (40 percent last season) in the starting backcourt. “Oh yeah, yeah, oh yeah,” D’Antoni said. “Pat can play off the ball, on the ball. He’s a great defensive player so there’s a lot of spots he can play.”
SLAM: By getting younger, you guys did lose two pieces of your core in Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon. They got offers they couldn’t turn down from Houston, but was it tough to see them go with them being here since you entered the League? Anthony Davis: It was their decisions. They were free agents and they tested the market. I didn’t talk to them or have any idea what their thinking was. Both of those guys are exceptional talents. I have nothing against them. When I see them, we’re still going to kick it like we’re on the same team. Those guys are great players. Both of them can score the ball, can shoot and I’m happy that they’re back on the same team again. I just can’t wait to play them. Those are our first two preseason games—against Houston in China. It’s going to be fun playing against them guys. They’re going to know what we run. We’re going to know what they like to do, so it’s going to be fun and I’m excited about playing them.
