@  Dan G : (18 April 2015 - 02:02 AM) I agree it is painful to watch but the best solution in my opinion if for these bad free throw players to work on hitting free throws. It's a crying shame a professional player can suck so bad at free throws that it has an effect on the game the way it does.
@  adonneus : (17 April 2015 - 11:49 PM) Around $120 for the worst seats in the house for the playoffs!
@  YaoMan : (17 April 2015 - 10:14 PM) A fan paying $120 for a good seats to an NBA game does not want to see D Jordan (or any bad free throwers) shoot 20 free throws. What if the NFL had a rule where you are driving for a touchdown, but your opponent can "foul" you or commit a violation where you get a field goal kick? Wouldn't that be the worst brand of football you would ever watch?
@  Cooper : (17 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) I'm still on the fence but The league will definitely look into it if our series,clips spurs, and others have as much hacking as expected.
@  Dan G : (17 April 2015 - 10:03 PM) It's all in the game, yo, all in the game.
@  YaoMan : (17 April 2015 - 10:02 PM) Hack a player is not basketball. I hate it with the passion. I wouldn't want to win that way. It's such an ugly product. They did this against Wilt Chamberlain in the old days and they changed the rule for a while where if you foul a guy without the ball, the offense gets a tech free throw but keeps possession. That's how I believe it should be. Either that or make it like the NFL where you can decline it.
@  thenit : (17 April 2015 - 07:40 PM) I don't think we should get rid off hack a player. I can see Mavs-Rocket game going on for 5 hours hacking Rondo and our players. That would be one way that may force NBA to adjust even though I disagree
@  jorgeaam : (16 April 2015 - 10:27 PM) K.J. McDaniels injured his wrist (likely fractured) during the Rocket's regular-season finale, and he will likely miss the entire post-season.
@  YaoMan : (16 April 2015 - 04:05 PM) Pop used this again last night Asik, and although it didn't work, is such a horrible product for the consumers. I hate it; even if the Rox won a game because of it, it's not basketball. Not even close...
@  YaoMan : (16 April 2015 - 04:04 PM) Oh by the way, anyone else want to start a petition to get rid of the hack a (insert worst free thrower on the floor)?
@  YaoMan : (16 April 2015 - 03:17 PM) Would have been nice if Pacers took out the Grizz so that SA battles Portland and could possibly upset GS. Now SA could be a potential second rounder...
@  thejohnnygold : (16 April 2015 - 02:18 PM) www.muchbetterthanthis.com. Surprising choice, rocketrick, but I suppose it can't hurt. Good to see you spreading the love. Go Rockets!
@  rocketrick : (16 April 2015 - 01:21 PM) Our Rockets deserve so much better than this..........
@  cointurtlemoose : (16 April 2015 - 04:43 AM) oops... 1) Yay us! 2) Spurs and Clips... brutal first round matchup, almost unfair
@  cointurtlemoose : (16 April 2015 - 04:41 AM) 1
@  Dan G : (16 April 2015 - 03:54 AM) jorgeaam*
@  Dan G : (16 April 2015 - 03:53 AM) Amen to that jorgeam
@  jorgeaam : (16 April 2015 - 03:31 AM) So last time the Rockets won their division they ended up as champs. May history repeat itself
@  RudyT1995 : (16 April 2015 - 03:14 AM) Pacers are hanging around. I really hope they can pull this off. Would love to see Clips-Griz round 1. We get what's left of the winner.
@  Mario Peña : (16 April 2015 - 03:08 AM) Gooooo Rockets!!! (I just got home from work)

The Houston Rockets have traded Marcus Morris to the Phoenix Suns for a future second-round draft pick, league sources tell Y! Sports.

@sam_amick: Kings send T. Robinson, F. Garcia, T. Honeycutt to Houston for Toney Douglas, Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson & cash, USAT has learned.

Love it. And it keeps the Rockets cap flexibility. I believe Garcia has a team option after this year.

Would want to give Josh Smith a MAX or hope to develop Robinson who could POTENTIALLY give you the same thing? I love this deal so much. CAP ROOM!

T.Jones and T.Robinson and Royce White! One of those three have to develop it something. Lets go get Chris Paul. He has to look that this line-up and think twice.

I can't imagine they won't trade for another PF who is a little older. How many years does O'Neal have left?

Francisco Garcia (6.1 million) & Tyler Honeycutt (850K) both have team options for next year. Thomas Robinson is owed 3.5 million next year.

Patrick Patterson (3.1 million) & Marcus Morris (2 million) would have both stayed on the books. Toney Douglas has a 3 million qualifying offer and Cole Aldrich's contract expired saving 2.5 million.

So in essence we got a top 5 pick in Thomas Robinson (who appears to be an excellent rebounder) and enabled the team to shave off an additional 4 million or so. Add to that 2 second round picks (Chase Budinger and Chandler Parsons anyone?). I'd say its an excellent deal.

Not necessarily a terrible thing. He is a young player at 24 who hustles. If you believe in Hollinger's adjusted stats, he has 14 pts/40, 6.6 rebounds/40 and 8.3 assists/40. But even if you don't, he has more upside than TD who probably wouldn't have been brought back next year anyway.

True. But he has looked lost at times, and while he has a greater upside than TD(who doesn't?), I don't think he's the better player right now and since we might be making a playoff run, it would have been nice to have TD. But, yeah, I don't think TD is good at all, though.

Only way to fix that is get him some playing time and see if he can learn and adjust. And while we may make the playoffs, we aren't going on a title run. Any playoff experience will be good for this team and if the young guys get to play then that means hopefully they grow and we can rely on them during a championship push.

So Toney Douglas isn't good at all, but you would want him taking a roster slot during the playoffs? Interesting.

Expires after this year.
