“I asked for it. I asked for a bigger opportunity, a bigger chance to display my skills on a high level” Beverely said (h/t Dan Feldman of NBC Sports).

“And I was fortunate that the Rockets did really good with me and put me in a situation where I can thrive and be successful. They could have really dumped me anywhere, but they did right, and I respect them a lot for it.”
