@  Mario Peña : (01 July 2016 - 10:45 PM) Dwight goes to Atlanta, hopefully that city and Budd work for him.
@  Mario Peña : (01 July 2016 - 10:16 PM) I'm still dreaming that Durant/Harden/Beasley are pulling a fast one on everyone and Durant is coming to Houston along with Horford and Bazemore. I know it's not going to happen but I can daydream about it.
@  majik19 : (01 July 2016 - 08:40 PM) Does the madness make our players valuable again? Before FA, no value. Now? Ariza, Beverly, Brewer, hell even KJ! 1st and 2nd round picks more valuable than ever.
@  DenverRocket : (01 July 2016 - 04:28 PM) He's apparently looking for ~20mill/yr
@  majik19 : (01 July 2016 - 03:33 PM) got a meeting with Kent Bazemore, who seems like a good fit next to Harden (but unfrotunately is going to pull something close to the max)
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 07:01 AM) Meant to say a MAX contract, not the
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 07:00 AM) Someone is going to pay Chandler Parsons the MAX contract for next 4 years. Portland offered, Parsons impressed, Parsons now headed to Memphis
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:27 AM) Beal is signing for $125 million over 5 years, average of $25 million per season. Harden is being paid 16.7 million and 17.8 million the next 2 seasons..........
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:26 AM) Capela is a huge bargain for the next 2 seasons for the Rockets!
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:26 AM) The Rockets also having Beverley, Brewer and McDaniels under contract for 2 more seasons at their salaries should be seen as a plus now, too!
@  rocketrick : (01 July 2016 - 06:24 AM) Ariza has just become too valuable to trade in light of the crazy numbers coming out since midnight for this year's free agent class!
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2016 - 06:19 PM) Looks like T Jones has officially been shown the door.
@  DenverRocket : (30 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) @slick No, I'm sure that has absolutely nothing to do with it ;-)
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2016 - 12:31 PM) @DenverRocket Is that because he knows the secret is out about his back and doesn't feel confident many other teams will give him a look?
@  DenverRocket : (29 June 2016 - 11:44 PM) Donatas Motiejunas, a restricted free agent, told ESPN he's willing to return to the Rockets. Houston is the first team he plans to meet with on July 1.
@  thejohnnygold : (29 June 2016 - 09:12 PM) For those interested, ESPN has a pretty good story about Hinkie and his process. Gives some insight into Houston's front office. LINK
@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 05:19 AM) Rockets also signing Kyle Wiltjer, Stretch 4, played at Gonzaga and Isaiah Taylor, PG, UT
@  rocketrick : (24 June 2016 - 04:51 AM) Rockets have just signed PG Gary Payton II to a 3-year contract
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:46 AM) not only is Onuaku a bad free throw shooter... http://espn.go.com/v...lip?id=15522771
@  majik19 : (24 June 2016 - 03:43 AM) Two centers... i'm sure he was just going potential but interesting nonetheless.

Let's put all non-Rockets trade discussion in here. Please include links.

To start: http://www.azcentral...?nclick_check=1

Gortat for Perkins, Lamb, and a 1st.

I don't know what to think. Gortat would make the Thunder a virtual lock to make the Finals again this year. And would really help them expose the Heat. But Lamb was supposed to be Harden's eventual long term replacement; also assuming they don't re-sign Kevin Martin....

If OKC can sign Gortat to a reasonable deal and it isn't the Toronto pick I think it is a great deal. The biggest concern with the Thunder is that they can't really throw the ball into the post and get a bucket. Gortat can definitely score in the post. And from what I know about Martin I feel like he would be willing to take a little bit less money to play there, that he'll be really happy being on a contender. OKC could still use the Tor pick to find a replacement. 2's are easier to find these days than post-scoring bigs.

this would be a steal for OKC. the raptors pick ain't looking all that good right now and perkins is expendable. the fact that lamb is in the deal surpised me. it tells me OKC is not as high on him as we were in houston. that may be bad for lamb. the suns are in deep sh^t right now. if I was the GM I would be worried about my job. they need to blow this team up trade off any player they can get a draft pick for and start the rebuild from the ground up.

OKC wins that by far. Gortat gives them a huge advantage over Perkins. Lamb isn't seeing time, and the pick isn't worth what it looked like it would be before the rudy gay trade.

I think Toronto sneaks into the playoffs. So that trade isn't worth a ton. ESPECIALLY if they end up trading for Boozer. So it would be a steal. I think the Suns would probably go after Lamb/PJ3 as well as the pick. It doesn't seem a good enough deal with just Lamb/pick

I agree that advantage goes to OKC, but it is a reasonable deal for both sides. Reminds me of Harden to HOU deal, with us "winning" in a sense, but OKC certainly not losing. PHX does alright here, imo, because Gortat is a tad overvalued. Bit unclear which 1st is being sent though. If it is TOR's, I think it gets closer to even for what PHX is throwing out.
