@  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.

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:
