@  slick shoes : (30 July 2015 - 12:58 PM) Once, we ink Terry to a one year vet minimum deal, I will be VERY pleased with our roster entering the season. Finals appearance, anyone?
@  Losthief : (30 July 2015 - 04:19 AM) And the Chuck Wagon is back in town!
@  thejohnnygold : (24 July 2015 - 06:40 PM) Greg Popovich gives a 25 minute interview (happily) and offers insight on lots of things. Worth listening to. LINK
@  slick shoes : (24 July 2015 - 02:25 PM) I'm glad Prigs found himself a home with a contender. Seemed like a high character guy.
@  jorgeaam : (23 July 2015 - 03:10 AM) So first Smith and now Prigs to the Clips, if you can't beat 'em join 'em
@  rocketrick : (22 July 2015 - 05:04 PM) Rockets actually are only committed to Lawson for 2015-16 season as they renegotiated with Lawson's agent and have a team option for 2016-17 season. Is Morey incredible or what when negotiating?
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 08:51 PM) Sorry, I'm too far away to offer help :rolleyes:
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 07:29 PM) Indeed, I do :lol: It gets worse....they live in enemy territory...Plano, TX.
@  Losthief : (20 July 2015 - 05:28 PM) ah so u understand the urge to drink!
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 05:14 PM) I was visiting the in-laws this weekend...
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 12:57 PM) Didn't here from you on Lawson, was a bit worried...
@  thejohnnygold : (20 July 2015 - 12:52 PM) Yes?
@  redfaithful : (20 July 2015 - 06:08 AM) JG
@  JY86er : (20 July 2015 - 03:27 AM) In rehab and traded here. I'm sure he thinkin, "JACKPOT!! Time to celebrate!"
@  Mario Peña : (20 July 2015 - 01:49 AM) It's done, Lawson is in for almost nothing really. Morey is a genius taking advantage Denver at their weakest.
@  majik19 : (20 July 2015 - 01:36 AM) on the court, great fit. off the court, lots of concerns. if he didn't have the DUI issues, would be a really good trade for us.
@  majik19 : (20 July 2015 - 01:34 AM) i'm also seeing a protected first from us, which feels like a bit much.
@  08huangj : (20 July 2015 - 01:33 AM) Oh, and Denver will be sending a second rounder to Houston also.
@  Cooper : (20 July 2015 - 01:30 AM) Im a little wary of lawson but if thats all who's going seems like the right move.
@  08huangj : (20 July 2015 - 01:28 AM) So basically we gave up nothing for a borderline all star. Great move.

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:
