@  thejohnnygold : (27 February 2015 - 04:31 PM) @losthief--I know exactly what it is--my ex-wife is English. How about we just don't cuss in the shoutbox, on the front page of an ESPN affiliated site, when we know it's against the rules? It's in the terms of use and it's not a game. If you need to cuss in your posts every other Rockets' forum allows that and all sorts of other behavior--go there to get it out of your system. The editing I do is a courtesy--the reality is warnings and bans are prescribed for violations. Sorry for the harshness, but I want the point to be clear for everyone.

Also, if you don't think UK English is a different language go over there and spend some time talking to folks--and not the posh ones with the stiff upper lips.
@  Losthief : (27 February 2015 - 01:26 AM) to be clear what i used jg was an english word...but i get you, didn't mean it as a curse word...thats urban slangs fault, its a middle english word.
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 February 2015 - 09:37 PM) "James Harden didn't practice today. Coach Kevin McHale told reporters Harden's right ankle was swollen and sore. He got treatment." - via Calvin Watkins
@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:08 PM) @ jorgearm, Prigioni played well in his time on the floor. He could prove very helpful for the stretch run
@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:07 PM) @ Incubus, give it time. KJ may see some time later but he's too fresh and needs practice with the team and I am still under the impression that this is a trade asset as well
@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:06 PM) Does anyone know the condition of the Harden's ankle?
@  Incubus2803 : (26 February 2015 - 06:57 PM) Kj McDaniels was never going to play for this team. Morey saw someone that was shining (presumably) in his defensive metrics, with athleticism bubbling out of him, and trusted that we could teach him to shoot. Remember the part about Smoove not leaving the gym till he sank 200 3s? Yea...
@  thejohnnygold : (26 February 2015 - 05:36 PM) Cursing in another language is still cursing. Sorry. By the way, this is not a game--let's not start that, please.
@  Losthief : (26 February 2015 - 06:08 AM) i kno...my heart can't take the *looks thru thesaurus* agony and the ecstasy of it all (does that work jg?)
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 February 2015 - 03:26 AM) Harden's gotta stop scaring me by having these close calls......
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:09 AM) I'm still wondering where KJ McDaniels is at
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:03 AM) Well, it seems Prigioni actually enjoys playing with a real team for a change.
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:02 AM) Same question I get when I see Tyson Chandler and Dallas
@  Sir Thursday : (26 February 2015 - 02:19 AM) So the question is: why don't the Clippers just throw an alley-oop to Jordan every time? The Rockets only seem to be able to stop it about one time in three...
@  Cooper : (26 February 2015 - 01:58 AM) crawford going off and harden doing nothing. Surprised they're still in the game
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 01:43 AM) T Jones hustling
@  Mario Peña : (25 February 2015 - 05:28 AM) That's unfortunate he is going down again.
@  jorgeaam : (25 February 2015 - 03:50 AM) Guys, D Rose is out for the year again
@  cointurtlemoose : (24 February 2015 - 08:06 PM) I like him off the bench, and I like him and Smith together. Depends on the matchup though too
@  YaoMan : (24 February 2015 - 04:10 PM) Should T Jone start or should he come off the bench for some potent punch? I'm conflicted on this...

Adrian Wojnarowski has reported we sent him to Milwaukee as part of a package


Dalembert and the 14th pick go the Bucks for the 12th pick, Jon Brockman, Jon Leurer and Brockman, sources tell Y!

Shaun Livingston also goes to the Rockets as part of the package, sources tell Y!

I gotta be honest, I thought Dally's contract (with its buy-out) would be worth more. There were rumors that Sacramento really wanted it.

Not bad only move up two spots but we can dump Livingston and probably buyout brokman. Leuer is actually a decent player might be worth keeping around.

I think that assumes we'll be dumping most of the roster in the next couple of days. If we can't make a big move we'll have to get out the ol' cutting knife.

Not Bad... Livingston can help now and Leuer has some potential, Brockman will go though... So we now have #12, #16 and #18? Still need to break into top 10 if we hope ORL will talk.

Keeping Livingston almost assures us of getting rid of Lowry OR letting Dragic walk. Only reason I say it is because there are still a few who think we keep both Lowry/Dragic.

Seems like a really good deal for us. We improve our pick, and Dalembert wasn't going to figure in our long-term plans anyway. From what I saw last year, Leuer played pretty well for the Bucks, not sure why they let him go. Really liking that acquisition, even if it makes our PF situation even more congested. And Livingston is a pretty serviceable backup PG - which I think is actually a good thing. In previous years we've had two PGs competing for the starting spot and getting in each other's way, but having an established starter will hopeful mean we avoid tensions within the squad.

Whether it helps us get those top picks...I'm not sure. Maybe Morey's planning on moving up incrementally? Perhaps his plan is to convince Detroit to trade down - they really want a big man, and all the projections I've seen show Leonard and Zeller being available a bit lower down than #9. And once you've got the #9, maybe you can find the next step on the ladder who's willing to trade with you...kind of ambitious though, and we'd be shedding a lot of assets to make it happen. But that's what they're for :P.

Not the trade I wanted to hear but if the 12th pick is more enticing and helps us in the grand scheme than the 14th pick, I guess a small hooray is in order.

Kings may have wanted slightly better than 14 and 16, maybe the 12 is to get that trade going again?
I like the point you made about recently having 2 starter quality PGs constantly battling/worrying about their job. Livingston is a good defender with great size, works well if Parsons/Lee are starting next year brings some defense to the 2nd unit. As far as Leuer, per 40mins he was one of 5 rookies that averaged 15pts and 10rebs-works for me..

So in what way is #12 better than #14? You get to pick ahead of Milwaukee and Phoenix, which you'd want to do if you suspected you were going after similar players to those teams. Milwaukee wanted a big man, and AFAIK Phoenix are looking for a wing (they keep getting linked to SG types). The sort of players who would be available at that stage...Zeller, Leonard are the primary big men, Ross and Lamb are probably the wing players. Do Sacramento want any of those guys? They've already got a glut of players at the wing, so I can't imagine they're looking there. I guess they could want another big man to pair with Cousins, so Zeller might fit - he's supposed to have a bit of range, which would complement Cousins quite well...
