James Harden says Ty Lawson is 'more focused than ever'
The Houston Rockets took a big chance by acquiring former Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson, but James Harden doesn't seem all that concerned about Lawson's issues with alcohol springing up again.
Here's more from Jonathan Feigen from the Houston Chronicle:
Lawson completed a 30-day rehabilitation program ordered after his second DUI arrest this year. Harden said he has already spent enough time with Lawson to be “not at all” concerned that Lawson will have similar issues.
“He’s out in California right now working out,” Harden said. “We’re happy to have him. He’s going to be a great addition to our team. I’ve been with him these last couple weeks. He’s more focused than ever. He has a great opportunity with a really good team to showcase his talents and help us with that push that we need.”
