Though Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni did not yet have a plan for how he would use Brandan Wright, the free agent center the Rockets signed on Monday, he did have a good idea how he will fit. "Insurance, mostly," D'Antoni said in his first comments about the transaction. "He's to me the type of center we like. He's long, vertical spacing and athletic, can run. He's another kind of Clint (Capela). We have Nene and Tarik (Black) being one type and them being another type. That's the depth. He's a good guy. He's going to be a good locker room game. All that's positive." The Rockets did not complete the signing of Joe Johnson before Tuesday's game. He would have to be signed one hour before Wednesday's game to be active, though there would not be any rush heading into the All-Star break.
