@  thejohnnygold : (13 November 2017 - 11:35 PM) That's good news for us and for you!
@  slick shoes : (13 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) CP3 is rumored to be back Thursday...
@  redfaithful : (06 November 2017 - 09:45 AM) Seems that Harden's FG% are no longer something to worry about
@  thejohnnygold : (30 October 2017 - 08:43 PM) That was definitely one of the most up and down games ever.
@  DenverRocket : (30 October 2017 - 03:48 PM) Is anyone even interested in basketball right now? That Astros game last night almost killed me! Exhausted! ;-)
@  thejohnnygold : (24 October 2017 - 07:47 PM) woo-hoo! We should try and get Troy Daniels while we're at it.
@  slick shoes : (24 October 2017 - 05:36 PM) We are bringing back the Canaan-ball!
@  rocketrick : (23 October 2017 - 03:34 PM) Rockets 3-0. Golden State 1-2.
@  DenverRocket : (20 October 2017 - 10:26 PM) CP3 out for a month, potentially. We've reached out to Jameer NElson to fill in according to Chris Haynes https://twitter.com/...483930997547009
@  DenverRocket : (18 October 2017 - 05:48 AM) And the talking heads on TNT have already decided that CP3 won't work with the Rockets, lol
@  DenverRocket : (18 October 2017 - 05:46 AM) Oh yes! That wiped the smile off their faces! :)
@  redfaithful : (18 October 2017 - 05:37 AM) That was a fun 4th Q!
@  DenverRocket : (17 October 2017 - 06:53 PM) Good read on CP3 and James: http://www.espn.com/...nded-chris-paul God damn it, I'm excited for tonight! :)
@  thejohnnygold : (16 October 2017 - 09:25 PM) Let's see what kind of improvement he's made since last season...that market value might be pretty high.
@  slick shoes : (16 October 2017 - 07:03 PM) Capela will be an RFA at the end of the season. Will be interesting to see what his market value will be.
@  thejohnnygold : (11 October 2017 - 04:12 PM) LAST CALL FOR FANTASY BASKETBALL!!!!
@  slick shoes : (04 October 2017 - 02:04 PM) Doesn't matter. I still won't watch it.
@  rocketrick : (04 October 2017 - 01:18 PM) The NBA once again is ahead of the Curve........... 2017-18 All Star Game won't be East vs West for obvious reasons
@  redfaithful : (23 September 2017 - 10:54 PM) The OKC experiment just got way more interesting...
@  slick shoes : (22 September 2017 - 12:26 AM) I'm on the fence about Melo coming to Houston, but I would much rather have him here than the Blazers. Hoping we can get something worked out there sooner than later.

Could the Rockets really get Gordon Hayward and Chris Paul? 

Yes,but it won't leave much.

(BTW,I believe the CP3 rumors of him leaving are to put pressure on Clips to get Carmelo.)

 

Get Hayward first as a Free Agent,requires @ $30mil of Cap Space.

As roster stands,they have @ $5.7mil in Cap.

1) trade Montrezl for Sac's #34 and part of their Trade Exception.

2) renounce rights,decline contracts for B Brown,K Wiljer,T Williams,I Taylor

3) between July 1 and July 7 trade Anderson to team w/Cap Space w/2018 First as price to pay for a Second Rd pick.(Hint,Philly needs shooters and has a ton of space.)

With Nene's Cap Hold and the 1 roster Cap Hold,this gives the Rockets a hair over $30mil,the amount needed to sign Hayward.

Sign Hayward

 

For Chris Paul,a sign-n-trade is required. Since he can sign for $35mil,the Rockets need to come w/in $5mil of that.

Ariza,Bev,Gordon,Lou Williams.

Clips get a SG who's younger and cheaper than Reddick,their first pro grade SF in ages and let Bev and Rivers fight it out for starting,back-up PG. Lou is easily tradeable.

 

What's left?

Paul,Harden,Hayward,Capella

Dekker,Nene(maybe),Onuaku

Capped out w/only the Seconds,minimums and Vet mins to fill out roster.

Note that while Harden,Capella,Dekker,Onuaku,Paul and Hayward comes out to @ $98.7mil in salaries and the Cap is @ $102mil,the NBA charges Roster Cap holds of @ $562,000 if the roster doesn't have some combo of 10 players under contracts,First Rd picks or player Cap Hold. Renouncing Nene's cap hold would allow the Rockets to keep Taylor and Williams-or Wiljer,but w/2 Cap Holds at @ $1.1mil,the Rockets would be over Cap.

Renouncing Nene along w/the 4 young'uns would still leave the Rockets at @ $101mil.

 

Conclusion,doable but not realistic. 1 yes,not both.
