@  Willk : (02 September 2014 - 02:20 AM) Jeff Adrien is a bad man http://twitpic.com/dlrurt
@  jorgeaam : (01 September 2014 - 04:07 AM) Probably a Parsons and a Beverley on those second rounders :P
@  feelingsuper... : (31 August 2014 - 09:31 PM) I don't mind Terry, it's a low cost gamble. I do like the 2 second rounders Morey acquired.
@  feelingsuper... : (31 August 2014 - 09:30 PM) Harden looked good once he got past the foul trouble and Coach K put the ball in his hands unlike the first half.
@  Willk : (31 August 2014 - 09:15 PM) harden 7 assists 0 TOs
@  Willk : (31 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) FSS - I do not know how to feel about that
@  feelingsuper... : (31 August 2014 - 09:01 PM) Woj reporting Kings working on deal to send Jason Terry to Rockets.

@  feelingsuper... : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) Just a reminder to everyone interested that Team USA plays Finland today at 2:30 central time on ESPN.
@  RollingWave : (28 August 2014 - 07:34 AM) But yeah, I can understand luxury tax / revenue sharing, but the cap's sole purpose is to help the Owner's pockets and also give jobs to all those captologist
@  RollingWave : (28 August 2014 - 07:33 AM) The irony obviously, sports being the one thing where the US is much more socialist than their European counter part ;)
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) Unless Cle wins 2 rings in 4 years I rather have what Mia has now 2 rings and a likely playoff team
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) That's why I don't like American sports, there shouldn't be any salary cap. It should be like Europe. Hating Socialism except for sports where the whole idea of is to compete to be the best. should be capitalistic and a free for all
@  rocketrick : (27 August 2014 - 11:53 AM) Boring...so which situation is better going forward? Miami Heat with practically no salary cap room after winning 2 titles in 3 years or Cleveland with all kinds of cap room? No wonder LeBron and KLove chose Cleveland. Just saying. NBA Salary Cap is quite onerous in the end.
@  thenit : (27 August 2014 - 02:53 AM) I think it's about right where we should be. We are a contender under the radar
@  rocketrick : (27 August 2014 - 12:42 AM) Las Vegas places 16-1 odds for the Rockets chances this season as the eventual NBA Champion. Only the Cavaliers, Bulls, Spurs, Thunder and Clippers rate better odds than the Rockets. Perhaps too much negativity this off-season in H-town???
@  rocketrick : (26 August 2014 - 11:40 PM) Troy Daniels is more of a SG, too with limited, at best, PG skills. I'm with Rolling Wave, I'd rather have Sessions than Ish Smith backing up Beverley
@  RollingWave : (26 August 2014 - 03:23 AM) Session has about 6x the career minutes of those 5 combined, of course you'd rather have him instead of Ish Smith if you could.
@  rockets best... : (26 August 2014 - 02:31 AM) Basketball Insiders is reporting the Rockets are pursuing a sign and trade for Ramon Session. with Ish, Beverly, Canaan, Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels on the roster I don't understand the move unless one of them will be in the deal and it is a larger deal than being currently reported
@  rockets best... : (25 August 2014 - 06:28 PM) so what you're saying is if Morey does this deal he's stupid? I disagree. we have a thread discussing it below. we can continue our conversation there if your wish

Should the Rockets try to trade for Demarcus Cousins?

I really believe that the Rockets should make some moves and try to land Cousins. I think he's a fantastic ball player, with amazing potential. Yes he is rough around the edges, but I truly believe that with him, and Harden we can make a push to the next step, which is Championship contention.

After yesterday with him punching O.J. Mayo in the groin, and his various other stunts, I think that Morey can convince the Kings for a trade, possibly pushing out PPat, and another player.

What do you guys think of this?

No. He is venom. There is not one troubled person on our team excluding Royce which has no relevance anyway. I know you're down with the Kentucky... why can't ppat suffice for you!?

WHERE IS ROYCE WHITE!?

I agree with your points that he can be a very good player, but adding a bad influence/questionable character guy to a young team could be detrimental to the future of our club.
I would rather see us wait closer to the deadline and see where we're at. If it looks like we're in the hunt, make a move for an established guy. If we're out of it or the path looks rough, I'd be excited to see us trade someone for a good lottery chance.

No he's to unstable to give up what sac would want for him, I'd rather go for Evans if we getting someone from the kings.

Honestly I see PPat as the only guy who has a chance to get through to Cousins on our roster. I know Blatche is having a breakout season, but he had already hit rock bottom in Washington. I don't think Boogie has gotten there yet.

if the rockets can get cousins without giving up harden,asik,jones or monte it would be a steal. even if you don't like the head games you gotta admit the kid has allstar talent at a weak position in the league. I believe we can handle him better than the kings. cousins+harden can be special and if we can include white in the deal that (IMO) is a blockbuster.

i honestly think a lot of cousions problems are also caused by how horrible the kings are run, that franchise is a trainwreck. With a good organization and good role models around him he could do amazing things, he is a rare talent.

Cousins does have a world of talent...but he is far,far from having the remotest idea of what maturity and professionalism are.
The second time Cousins doesn't even bother to so much as jog back on D,McHale would yank his butt and bench him for eternity.
Cousins is going to take YEARS before he comes close to having a clue-if it ever happens. It'll probably happen on his third team.

But of more immediate import,the Kings have committed themselves to Cousins. They simply won't trade him. They've chosen Cousins over Tyreke and they aren't changing their minds anytime soon.

Kevin Love

while the rockets can't go wrong with cousins or love I prefer cousins. I think when he reaches his ceiling he can become possible top 5 in the league with the right coaching. and by the way welcome to the fourm :rolleyes:

I agree with amacbrooks, Kevin Love over Demarcus Cousins. Though the chances of either of the players coming to the Rockets in the next few years is slim to nil.

Yes!!! If he doesn't work out and proves to be a really bad citizen, he's has a relatively short contract, so the risks are minimal and there is tremendous upside here.

There would be risk because sac won't give him up for cheap

Just watched Cousins against the Warriors, he is just so immature. He got called for a block and he imitates the refmaking the call. Luckliy for him,he didn't get a T as healready had 5 fouls. Too emotionally immature that could blow at any time andcst you the game. No thank you, he isn't worth the headaches.

I agree cousins is immature, but I believe the rockets can turn this guy. their is no questioning his talent. the guy is an oversized kid who needs to grow up. he's not a bad kid he just need someone to channel and focus his attention and energy on polishing his game. I think the rockets are the right team to pull that out of him. the kings front office is a mess and there is no leadership in the locker room. that's a major part of the problem. the kings don't really want to trade him so I would be more worried about what they may want in return. I think their asking price may be to high.

Haven't seen if McHale s tough enough to handle someone like Cousins. Someone like Mike Woodson who would get in his grill and bench him for multiple games is what he needs. He is going to eat any coach that's soft and doesn't have owner's support, but, like you said he has world of talent and some of the best hands I've seen. Unfortunately, his brain is light years behind his talent. Maybe he needs to get cut like Blatche before he straightens out.
