@  majik19 : (13 October 2015 - 09:09 PM) Apparently we claimed Arsalan Kazemi off waivers from the Hawks today... yet another undersized (6'7") power forward for Morey's cupboard.
@  Mario Peña : (10 October 2015 - 01:12 PM) If your part if the Red94 Fantasy Basketball League check the thread to vote for the date and time for the draft event. Thanks y'all!
@  jorgeaam : (07 October 2015 - 08:47 PM) Guys we need 1 more owner for the Red94 fantasy league, if interested please comment on the post in the fantasy basketball thread
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 06:50 PM) Kobe ranked one spot higher than Ariza? Is this based on legacy or...??
@  slick shoes : (07 October 2015 - 04:13 PM) It was hard to keep up with both the Astros and Rockets at the same time. Should be interesting on Thursday with the Texans and Astros on simultaneously.
@  Mario Peña : (07 October 2015 - 04:09 PM) It was fun to have the Rockets on last night! Right now I'm watching the Celtics versus Milan and Alessandro Gentile is impressive.
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Well, thinking twice about it, I'd rather have him score less and have the team as a whole do better. Lawson should take a lot of his load off
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 07:47 PM) Loving that, hope he hits 30 PPG this year
@  thejohnnygold : (06 October 2015 - 06:15 PM) Someone is feeling confident :) : LINK
@  jorgeaam : (06 October 2015 - 05:54 PM) 10 Teams done, will need 2 more
@  Mario Peña : (06 October 2015 - 02:35 PM) Alright guys, if anyone is interested in joining the Red94 fantasy basketball league we could use one more player to get us to 10 teams (or three to get us to 12 teams). Just check the thread in the Fantasy Basketball forum. Thanks!
@  thejohnnygold : (05 October 2015 - 06:23 PM) I use leaguepass here in Austin with no problems...
@  skip 2 my lou : (05 October 2015 - 03:14 PM) Hey fellas, I'm a rocket fan but I live in the heart of Dallas. Does anybody know if I buy NBA Leaguepass if it's too close to be subject to blackouts?
@  Losthief : (02 October 2015 - 02:24 AM) tks jg

@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

    @RealMichaelMa: Here we go again: Rockets/Bulls exploring a possible 3-team deal involving Omer Asik/Jeremy Lin/Luol Deng: http://t.co/M48IF7Gcxu

    Your going to get tons of trade rumors. What caught my attention is that this is coming from FOX Sports. Does it mean it's going to happen? Nope, is there any validity to this? Not saying yes or no, stuff comes out of no where. My question is, does it make sense?

    I don't think so for the Rockets only because Beverley is out, and you only have Brooks and Canaan left. As a LOF, I'd LOVE for this to happen.

      If even Asik can not be successfully traded, how is it possible for Lin?

        Because Horford is injured in ATL. Supposedly they been interested in Asik before.

        BTW, if Deng does come to HOU, who starts at SF? Parsons might be demoted?

        It would probably be Jones getting demoted to the bench and Deng would start at PF. I'm not a fan of that trade but I figure that is how it would go down.

          Not sure i care for that purposed deal......the only thing I like about it is the expiring Deng contract (Luol Deng that is haha). Maybe go after Amir Johnson in free agency?

            Sorry just looked up free agent list....Johnson not until end of 14-15 season. Duncan and nowitzki (they will resign with current team). I guess we can go after someone else.

              I think this trade is very good if not ideal for Lin.  He will go to a team whose fan base will embrace his style of play.  He will get Chicago into the playoffs because the only thing they lack is some offensive punch. When Rose gets back, he and Rose will be a dangerous backcourt.  Based on Nate Robinson's experience in Chicago, Lin will likely find a more supportive coach in Thibodeau. The pace that Chicago plays at will also help Lin defensively.

               

              Any trade out of Houston is good for Asik.

               

              For the Rockets, the trade improves them defensively at the perimeter, but hurts them in the paint and is a downgrade offensively.  Deng doesn't have the speed or hops to block shots at the rim or finish at the rim like Jones.  He is more of a traditional SF. Offensively, Beverley will get the minutes on the floor and he will not provide much offensively. The offense will likely bog down into more isolation basketball.  They would need Canaan to emerge to get much use out of the bench.

              I'm not sure if everyone has heard but Al Horford is out for the rest of the season. This adds a lot of motivation for the Hawks to get a deal done, but I think the Hawks will want to get Asik without giving up Millsap which I'm not sure is even possible.

                Luol Deng was pretty much my dream trade target (out of the realistic ones) from the start of the season.  Would add a ton to this team - can play him next to Parsons at the forwards to close out games.  But for Omer AND Lin?  It would be really tough to lose Lin right now, especially with Beverley out.

                Omer AND Lin is way too much to give up. If these rumors are true, I have to assume that Michael Ma missed the detail where we're getting Atlanta's 1st otherwise I just don't see how the deal is fair. Atlanta already has Brooklyn's 1st so it's plausible for them to give us the Atlanta 1st and just make it lottery protected. So the deal should look like this:

                 

                Houston receives:

                Luol Deng

                Demarre Carroll

                Elton Brand

                Atlanta 2014 1st (lottery protected)

                 

                Chicago receives:

                Jeremy Lin

                 

                Atlanta receives: 

                Omer Asik

                 

                I can probably see other Rockets players being included but I wouldn't know who. Casspi makes sense.

                Atlanta doesn't have Brooklyn's 1st, they have the right to swap picks.

                  I could see Chicago taking a pick from the hawks send us Deng and rockets give the hawks asik.
                  But trading Lin without getting a guard back is asking too much from Beverly and brooks to fill out the rotation.

                      2016 Champions i read a report Demarre Carroll is hurt as well. I believe a thumb injury. He will need to pass a physical. I don't like the idea of Parsons playing 4's. Parsons hurt his back vs Portland (the first matchup during that 4 games in 5 night stretch-back spasms). It keeps reoccurring possibly due to matching up with 4's every once in a while. Last play of the first SA game.....he barely made it back to mid-court. Practically crawling.

                      Can Deng play the 4 consistently.....they usually go Noah © Boozier (PF)?

                      I don't know how the rotations will work, but I strongly doubt Parsons will be playing the 4. As for whether Deng can play the 4, I am very, very, confident that he would be an upgrade over Casspi.

                        I seriously doubt the Rockets are trading anyone but Asik, unless Morey is robbing the other team blind. The Rockets are on the verge of competing for the chip, even without Asik.So even in Asik's case Morey is out there offering a dime for other teams dollar.

                          Or the Rockets get the right to switch with the better pick of NJ's pick or Atlanta's pick. Plus a 2015 Atlanta pick.
