@  thejohnnygold : (03 December 2016 - 05:48 AM) Looking at the structure of the deal I think we match it...unless Morey is concerned about messing up team chemistry.
@  DenverRocket : (03 December 2016 - 12:44 AM) Signed. 4yrs, $37 million. We have 3 days to match.
@  DenverRocket : (01 December 2016 - 05:24 PM) D-Mo close to signing Nets offer sheet according to Woj https://t.co/AGtJj532y0
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:35 AM) D-Mo took bad advice from his agent. We shall see how it plays out. If he gets multiple deals or works things out with Houston.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:33 AM) D-Mo still ends up having to prove himself for one yr for about slightly less than what Houston offered for one yr.
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:31 AM) probably break even financially....because t everyone loses
@  Jatman20 : (29 November 2016 - 03:30 AM) I agree Slick Shoes. He could probably play in one European for about $2 mil for what amounts to 20 something games....and then play for another European team for about the same for about 26 games. Rockets & D-Mo
@  slick shoes : (23 November 2016 - 07:30 PM) I don't know that we would get anything in return for DMo at this point. He will have to play to prove that he can physically be out there and prove that he has actual value.
@  Jatman20 : (22 November 2016 - 02:32 PM) Nov 22: Ennis can be traded Nov 23: D-Mo deadline to be traded.....for what it's worth.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 08:27 PM) End of tweet: "Still no progress." Dude feels burned. I don't blame him.
@  DenverRocket : (21 November 2016 - 07:58 PM) I saw yesterday (somewhere, I think Calvin Watkins) a tweet saying that Rockets have had positive discussions with D-Mo's agent.
@  slick shoes : (21 November 2016 - 05:35 PM) Wiltjer is back from D-League!
@  DenverRocket : (17 November 2016 - 04:16 PM) Good interview with Thabeet for those interested: http://theundefeated...-to-the-league/
@  slick shoes : (09 November 2016 - 07:01 PM) "We have to commit to defense," said Jeff Bzdelik, the assistant coach charged with guiding Houston on that end, "or we're just a .500 team that runs up and down a lot." Hey, someone gets it!
@  thejohnnygold : (09 November 2016 - 05:53 PM) Zach Lowe has a solid article detailing the good and the bad for Houston. LINK
@  slick shoes : (05 November 2016 - 01:18 PM) Well,Ii don't feel so bad about the Rockets not being able to beat the Lakers on opening night now.
@  thejohnnygold : (04 November 2016 - 08:46 PM) thirded
@  majik19 : (04 November 2016 - 06:06 PM) I second slick shoes - please accept!
@  slick shoes : (04 November 2016 - 06:04 PM) "ESPN sources say Houston's latest offer to Donatas Motiejunas is a multiyear deal that starts at a fully guaranteed $7 million in Year 1." Please accept, D-Mo!
@  Jatman20 : (04 November 2016 - 01:23 AM) I guess Caps & Nene didn't do so bad. Thompson is killing Boston without Horford.

Certainly more of a challenging matchup at most positions. The matchup at PF/C is much more relevant with this one. Regarding shooters, Prince and Stuckey shot poorly against Houston, which we can't necessarily expect from Teague and Korver. Looking forward to watching. Don't forget about the NBA League Pass free trial going until the 6th!!! You can watch the Houston network or the Atlanta network for some interesting enemy propaganda.

It's funny how much I bitched about Delfino before the trade.....but now that we're trying to win, I'm so glad we have him. Hoping for some more veteran pickups for backup roles as well. Could really use a good backup point guard.

Rahat,
I agree on the PG issue. I would like to see Machado play against some NBA talent and see how he compares to his relatively reliable play in the preseason/summer league. Were we ever not trying to win? Even without Harden, we would have been able to be a top non-playoff team. I know the Rockets management has not been one to throw in the towel on a season, even if the playoffs were a longshot. Long live mediocrity!

I did think the delfino singeing was stupid As well but now it makes much more sense. Without harden we wouldn't score enough to be any good.

That´s why I'm starting to believe that Morey had that deal planned all along....maybe I'm giving too much credit to him, but it's a possibility, maybe it's the excitement of having Harden in our roster, I don't know. But has definitely improved Morey's offseason grade by far.

You are right, in that case, I'm starting to agree with you 100%.
