@  slick shoes : (21 June 2017 - 04:28 PM) Morey is locked in for four more years. Glad to have some stability at the helm after everything we've seen the last couple of weeks.
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 04:31 PM) It's a shame we don't have a first rounder this year. I did notice that the W's and the Cavs have 0 picks this year (not that they need them).
@  thejohnnygold : (16 June 2017 - 03:57 PM) Whoever picks him is going to be a happy camper
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 02:00 PM) De'Aaron Fox giving Bev a shout at the end of this piece

@  slick shoes : (22 May 2017 - 05:25 PM) I can't decide if I want them to draft Ball or not.
@  thejohnnygold : (21 May 2017 - 02:50 PM) Don't worry...they'll find a way to screw it up.
@  slick shoes : (17 May 2017 - 03:52 PM) Is anyone else annoyed that the league reached out and helped the Lakers secure a top 3 pick to keep them from long term ruin?
@  Mario Peña : (13 May 2017 - 11:56 AM) It would appear James will take games off next year which is probably a good thing. Perhaps we will see some evolution from emphasis on regular season to being playoff ready both from a physical as well as a strategy standpoint.
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) I personally will be rooting for the Spurs in their next matchup with Golden State in the Western Conference Finals
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) Congratulations to the Spurs and Coach Pop. They completely destroyed the Rockets last night (understatement of the year)
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 02:55 AM) Very disappointing end to an otherwise great season.
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 01:10 AM) Stunningly bad. Out played, out coached and no one is stepping up :-(
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 01:07 AM) Well, it can't get any worse right?
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 12:35 AM) It's like Dekker has been waiting to play or something.
@  08huangj : (11 May 2017 - 12:08 PM) It is utterly baffling to me why MDA is not utilizing Dekker and Harrell. These two were integral to our dominant regular season bench!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:18 AM) Everything the TNT analysts said, I was screaming during OT. MDA blamed it on fatigue - no kidding sherlock, when you only use a 7 player rotation!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:17 AM) Sorely disappointed with that. Huge missed opportunity. I thought McHale was coaching again in overtime!
@  slick shoes : (10 May 2017 - 03:02 AM) No offensive scheme in overtime. No Parker, and no Leonard through all of overtime and you STILL can't close it out?!
@  thejohnnygold : (10 May 2017 - 02:57 AM) So much profanity in my home tonight...
@  Mario Peña : (08 May 2017 - 06:57 PM) Right Johnnygold! That was a good game!

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.

Does anyone feel sorry for Patterson? Going from Houston to Sac? That's got to suck.

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.
