@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 11:25 PM) Bev is baaaack, 4 years 25 Mil
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 11:08 PM) So the headbands might be back after all
@  majik19 : (03 July 2015 - 10:22 PM) i think that's very fair for Brewer given that Afflalo also got 8 mil/yr and Kyle Singler (????) got 5/yr
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 10:11 PM) 3 yrs/$24 Million for Brewer. Considering some of the contracts players have received this off-season, I like it.
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 09:45 PM) So Collison is reportedly not happy with the Kings meeting with FA PGs. That could be a good plan B if we don't get Aldridge. I know it has been discussed previously, but this is the first time I've seen it reported that Collison actually might be available.
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 09:41 PM) No way they trade Paul. They can still be a good team, and might be able to pick up Koufus or someone similar that will still make them competitive in the West. Championship team? Probably not, but Paul isn't going anywhere.
@  Cooper : (03 July 2015 - 08:15 PM) Wonder if the clips would think about trading Paul? Probably still a playoff team but they're the only one that got significantly worse.
@  Mario Peña : (03 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) I dunno, I think for the Cavs 16 is fine for Thompson but maybe not other teams. Looks like the Mavs are getting Jordan which I don't really like but may be okay now that I think about it. The Clippers get worse and the Mavs prolong the inevitable and will still be a fringe playoff team.
@  majik19 : (03 July 2015 - 07:01 PM) 16 mil a year IS way too much for Tristan Thompson. and 12 mil/yr on the surface seems reasonable to me, but if the "slow footed big man" is going extinct (re: Andrew Bogut in the Finals), then that may be a terrible contract
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 July 2015 - 04:19 PM) And cmon, Josh, just look at that franchise right now. You don't wanna go there...
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 July 2015 - 04:17 PM) It's pretty crazy, I have to reprogram my brain on what is and isn't a good contract. Though I still think 12/year for Asik and 16/year for Tristan Thompson are way too much
@  txtdo1411 : (03 July 2015 - 02:21 PM) So if Ariza was a FA this year, he could easily get a $12-14 million per year contract right? I mean I know the cap is jumping soon, but this has been nuts!
@  Cooper : (03 July 2015 - 02:19 PM) Kings talking to Smith. I'm a little worried they have loads of cap after that ridiculous trade and not many guys left worth spending on.
@  Mario Peña : (03 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) I'm okay with that. He probably won't last long but I like how the Mavs fans are all happy and claiming it's great value. Funny stuff.
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 07:17 AM) Well, Wes is a Mav
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 04:56 AM) plus, jordan is probably getting 20 million a year, so I don't even think they can get both of them as they already have 24 million for parsons and dirk
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 04:55 AM) Yeah Wes is apparently going there, but he's going to cost them a lot, $15 million or more / year
@  majik19 : (03 July 2015 - 03:21 AM) I read that Wes Matthews is close to signing there. If they signed Matthews and Jordan, they are a younger version of the team they had last year. But they would lack a creator.
@  bboley24 : (03 July 2015 - 02:49 AM) Is anyone noticing the complete implosion of the Dallas Mavericks?
@  jorgeaam : (03 July 2015 - 01:55 AM) If Phoenix lands Aldridge, they are going to be pretty scary

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

Sacramento has traded forward Thomas Robinson to the Houston Rockets, league source tells 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.
