@  thejohnnygold : (07 August 2016 - 07:16 PM) Nope, but there is some raw talent to work with there. He is years away...
@  majik19 : (06 August 2016 - 11:53 PM) well it doesn't look like Zhou Qi is NBA-ready
@  thejohnnygold : (25 July 2016 - 04:26 PM) I think I am going to like Bobby Brown...that is within the confines of our current strategy which is score, score, SCORE!
@  slick shoes : (22 July 2016 - 08:02 PM) The "super team" Knicks? lol
@  thejohnnygold : (22 July 2016 - 06:05 PM) On Josh Smith...my guess is the Knicks eventually sign him.
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 04:29 PM) The Jet has been released. Josh Smith will likely play for another team next season. Maybe he teams up with Dwight in ATL?
@  slick shoes : (21 July 2016 - 12:17 PM) Harden is now sending hitmen after Rockets legends' sons for badmouthing him on social media *facepalm*
@  slick shoes : (18 July 2016 - 02:22 PM) If you haven't seen the 30 for 30 "The Guru of Go", I recommend it before the upcoming season.
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 07:20 PM) Yea I know, but there were reports both sides were willing to have a reunion before Chicago signed him. So at the time, Canaan was an option, and a better one than Pablo at that. We should've capitalized on that one, especially with how well he fits the system for obvious reasons + age on his side.
@  thejohnnygold : (14 July 2016 - 03:43 PM) Canaan signed with Chicago already
@  Shy Silver : (14 July 2016 - 03:24 PM) Don't love the Prigioni move. Thought for sure we had better options like bringing Canaan back or getting someone like Shane Larkin
@  DenverRocket : (14 July 2016 - 04:36 AM) Apparently signed Prigioni to a one-year contract (veteran minimum) with a team option for a second season.
@  slick shoes : (13 July 2016 - 08:38 PM) Chris Finch is out as an assistant. Bummer.
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2016 - 03:32 PM) Shame to lose Glove Jr. before the close of Summer League. Would have liked to see him get some court time.
@  Mario Peña : (09 July 2016 - 11:21 PM) I'm going to tentatively say I'm glad this is happening. I believe James is a top 5 player with all the tools to have a great year but this team needs an all star/glue guy/leader type and then maybe the magic can happen.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 July 2016 - 09:53 PM) If he plays defense I'll be fine
@  DenverRocket : (09 July 2016 - 07:51 PM) Bad news for the anti-Harden brigade, he's just signed a 4yr extension ($118m)
@  slick shoes : (07 July 2016 - 12:46 AM) Maybe these are just pieces to a larger puzzle... (fingers crossed)
@  thejohnnygold : (06 July 2016 - 08:21 PM) Morey has had a crush on him for a long time...another offense-only guy...
@  slick shoes : (06 July 2016 - 06:22 PM) We have just signed Nene to a one year deal....

What do you all think of getting Fredette from the Kings? We need a backup PG/SG combo to replace Harden/Lin when they come out. I don't think he would cost much and could give a spark off the bench.

Can't see anything like that happening after the Beverley signing.

Rahat:
trying to pair gortat, gay and dragic sounds like something to work with to me throw in scola and you just might start winning some games. the move ain't all that bad depending on what they give up.

I have heard, via Twitter, that the Griz may be shopping Z-Bo also to see if they can find any attractive offers. Seems plausible to me because it's been widely known Gay was available for a while now and yet still no in depth rumors.

Chris Andersen has been evaluated and gone through a workout with the Miami Heat, I think he'd be a huge help in rebounding for them, which is their biggest weakness right now.

Why can't Kenyon Martin find a job? I understand his attitude issues and age but the guy was solid just a few years back- Im sure he could help one of the contenders(ala Miami Heat)

One more note, ESPN Insider is reporting that the Rockets(along with several other teams) may be interested in Donte Green.

I think that's a recipe for sustained mediocrity.

Gay is under one of the worst old-CBA contract, any team taking him will be killing the next two seasons. I think amnesty is more likely...

There's a trade I would love to see going through: http://espn.go.com/b...-rudy-gay-chase

Such trade would probably take both teams into the mediocrity zone with no cap money to spend, and along with the trading history the Rockets already have with both (Kyle Lowry...), it could turn into one of these deals where Morey turns assets to wins...

According to the Internet, Melo's anger was sparked by comments from KG regarding the former's wife. If that's the case, I don't blame Melo at all.

I heard KG told melo that his wife tasted like honey nut cherrios. if that's the case then those are fighting words. that's like someone talking about your momma. in my opinion that will get you a fist sandwich :angry:
