@  slick shoes : (24 August 2015 - 06:14 PM) ill just leave this here...

@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) At least in my opinion.
@  timetodienow... : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) I love having Terry. But the main factor was that New Orleans will NOT compete for a championship this year and the Rockets will.
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Things that make me like the JET even more
@  jorgeaam : (21 August 2015 - 03:57 AM) Jason Terry said that he turned down a more lucrative deal from New Orleans in order to return to Houston.
@  clydesmoustache : (19 August 2015 - 08:32 AM) A year ago who would have thought I would be so happy to have Jason Terry on my team. Welcome back JET! Hurry up October!
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 August 2015 - 04:45 AM) Terry I love yooouuuuuuuuu
@  jorgeaam : (19 August 2015 - 02:38 AM) Yay Terry is back!
@  majik19 : (15 August 2015 - 09:33 PM) and i thought these shouts were limited to some number of characters!
@  thejohnnygold : (15 August 2015 - 02:23 PM) Ha, sorry for the wall of text...
@  thejohnnygold : (15 August 2015 - 02:22 PM) I am very surprised at how many people are interested in a below-the-rim, mid-range-chucking power forward who only grabbed double-digit rebounds 12 times last season (out of 82 games)and would require us to give up personnel that is likely better than he is for our team since D-Mo does everything he can, but better. I seriously doubt Markieff is coming here to play 15 mpg and giving up Jones (plus more players to match salaries) would go down in history as Morey's worst move as a GM. Unless you think Phoenix waits until the trade deadline to move him we only have D-Mo, Jones, Dekker, Capela and Harrell to work with. It would take 4 of those guys because we are over the cap. No way Morey does that deal--not for Morris. Let him go somewhere else and cool his jets a bit...then maybe he can come here as a bench role player down the road. $8M and a roster spot is not a good deal when the player doesn't fit your scheme. He'd be better in Chicago playing Boozer's former role.
@  Dan G : (15 August 2015 - 08:59 AM) I'd give up Jones personally. Even if somehow Jones finally gets his stuff together, then we will have to pay him. Markieff has always been the better player out of the Morris twins, he wants to come here, and he his on a very friendly contract like jorgeaam alluded to.
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 11:47 PM) Looks like Markieff is good friends with Harden too (according to Rotoworld, he chose Rockets or Raptors because he's also friends with Lowry). So I wouldn't be too concerned with his attitude either.
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 08:39 PM) I think that might be over scalated by the media (same with Josh Smith), from what I've read, they attacked a guy who had some problems with their mom or something like that. Forgot to mention he's on a great deal too (3 years @ 8 million per)
@  cointurtlemoose : (14 August 2015 - 06:21 PM) On the court, Morris would be great. I just don't want any of that bad attitude and hot-headed-ness that he's displayed over the last 6 months (don't forget about the assault)
@  jorgeaam : (14 August 2015 - 04:43 PM) Well, the Suns are in the same position the Nuggets were with Lawson, they need to deal Morris and won't get lots in return. I like him very much as a 6th man, he can shoot the 3 and play both forward spots.
@  slick shoes : (14 August 2015 - 03:59 PM) @JG my sentiments exactly. word on the street is boston and toronto want him. have fun with that, champ.
@  thejohnnygold : (14 August 2015 - 01:22 PM) @Slick Shoes - Nothing.
@  slick shoes : (14 August 2015 - 12:49 PM) What would you be willing to give up for Morris? I like the roster as constructed, personally.

Where would he fit? Off the bench? Harden at the 3? I'm not sure how it would work.

And I'm also quite unclear on how he'd fit on our roster. Parsons off bench w/ Harden at the 3? We could go super small ball and even have Parsons at the 4 sometimes lol. It sounds like a fun experiment that won't actually work...

We'd have a team that would not be getting great perimeter wing stops, and really just going for a SUPER version of our current offense haha. 130+ pt game averages! :P

I like the idea. my only reservation is how much gordon stays hurt. when healthy he is clearly a star, but you can't score from the rehab room. he has not played a complete season since he entered the league. base on that stat I would say no to any deal. while we could be contenders when he's healthy he misses to much time on the court. in addition I am always scary about players who have chronic knee problems. in the nba a players knees take a pounding. if you aren't starting out with a good set chances are you won't be around long.

I'm not sold on this at all. Gordon's only full season was the lock-out year....other than that he is injured. Add to that his shooting is Kobe-like in that he uses volume to amass numbers....he is not a good enough finisher at the rim, imo.....if he wanted to be our sixth man off the bench....I might like it, but at $13+ milliion/year I stop liking it.

So to recap: Injured, inefficient, and expensive.

Maybe in our system his numbers increase and it maximizes his skill-set better than before....but that only solves 1 of the 3 problems.

Sacramento tried it. Milwaukee keeps trying it. The Knicks tried it (and got lucky).....what is it? Amassing high volume scoring guards and thinking that is a good idea. It only ever worked once (the knicks) and they got steam-rolled in the finals once a real team showed up. We know what this team needs and it isn't another slash and shoot player.

Look at every NFL team that ignores their O and D Lines for the flashy players at RB, WR, CB, QB, etc. All losers.

Plus, we give up a lot in this trade...don't forget that. No more parsons. No more delfino. No more t. jones/D-mo. Kiss all that good bye to watch eric gordon shoot 40%...that is when he isn't rehabbing his knees.

As the article says, it's highly unlikely that Gordon gets moved anywhere. And in any case, all Houston have done is make an 'inquiry'. That's something active GMs (which Morey most certainly is) do as a matter of routine and has very little bearing on whether or not it's a trade that is seriously being considered. This could have just been Morey idly asking something like: "So, how's Eric Gordon working out for you?", or somesuch. Not a particularly good indicator of anything other than that Morey is doing his job.

I tend to ignore articles like this unless they actually mention concrete negotiations progressing. Otherwise it's usually just a tidbit of regular NBA business that's been blown up far out of proportion with its significance.

I'd rather have Parsons and his flexibility and court savvy than an often injured Gordon that can basically only play the 2, Harden's natural position.

I have to second what Sir Thursday writes. If there is one thing we know about Morey is that more often than not he keeps trades under wraps pretty well and we as fans do not get the story till after the trade goes down. The Rockets do a good job of keeping player transaction details in house. I would guess that Morey is just routinely inquiring about Gordon and might be a piece to include in a 3 team trade knowing Morey. That is my best guess.

It'd be hard to not be excited about having a player like Gordon on the team, at least until the first time he misses an extended amount of time due to injury. About his injury issues though, I feel he drags his recovery out based on not wanting to play for his current team. The guy hasn't played on a good team his entire career. He was a Clipper when they were struggling to win easy games, and now a Hornet while they're awful. As an NBA Player in 5 seasons, Eric Gordon's teams have accumulated only 120 wins, and never made the playoffs. If I were him I wouldn't be in any hurry to get back on the court either.

Overall, I think our team could make it work, but with that small of a front court, I'd like to see an upgrade at the 4 still prior to acquiring Gordon. Unless you can lock down the paint, I don't see how you can consistently win. It would be fun as hell to watch though.

Precisely. We have other priorities right now....I mean, having two All-Star caliber (talentwise) shooting guards but no real back-up at center, or not having a reliable rebounder at power forward or a composed point guard to play back-up....It would be cool to see him here, We would be making about 372 points per game ( :P) but that's not exactly an upgrade from what we have now, we are already scoring more points than most teams, we need to fill in the blanks to get better, not superimpose talent at the same position.
