From the Ninetyfourums: On Deron, Dwight

A reader, Stephen, in response to the possibility of Dallas signing both Deron and Dwight, writes:

The Rockets could do the same,only w/a much better supporting cast intact.
It basically involves trading Martin for no incoming 2012 salary or using the amnesty on him.
Not re-sign Thabeet,let Flynn and Dragic go. Stretch buy-out Dalembert’s $1.5mil 2012 option so it only counts $500,000 against Salary Cap.

Left w/ Scola,Lowry,Hill,Williams,Patterson,Morris,Motie(coming over),Bud,Parsons. About $29mil in salary,leaving just enough for 2 LeBron,Bosh type $14.5mil deals.
Llull could come over,his 2 Rd salary not counting towards cap til he signs. MLE available for Lee.
I’d assume if such was agreed upon by Dwight and Deron Williams,Lowry would get traded for some cap relief and a young player/draft pick,freeing up more room to sign Dwight,Williams.
If such a fantasy came true:
Knicks pick and any others

The scenario where the Rockets could chase Dwight and Williams is very remote. BUT,it’s possible and it has to be in Rocket’s thinking.
So I doubt the team makes any moves until the Dwight situation gets resolved. If Dwight is traded-or reasonably certain to be-then I think the Rockets will make some trades,resolving the Martin/Lee situation among others. Until then,or forced by a particular situation,they’re standing pat.(Which means they’ll probably pull off a multi player,multi-team blockbuster trade tomorrow smile From the Ninetyfourums: On Deron, Dwight .)

Obviously the pipe-dream of all pipe-dreams, but interesting nonetheless.
