Rockets seeking trade this week after waiving House
Lets hope its not some trash trade...we need something to get clutchfans hyped up...
Why aren't we just waiting till the 15th? I'm confused.
Personally i have no idea...but i guess we could at least look at struggling teams or teams that already gave up on the season so:
- Miami is a team struggling right now, they are going to pay the tax and for a team with a good chance to end up in the lottery well, that's not exactly great. They have a couple of pieces that would fit here on paper (Winslow and JJ) and that shouldn't cost much.
- Washington is basically in the same position and guys like Porter, Oubre, Morris shouldn't cost much.
- Cavs are probably looking to traded everyone aside for Sexton, but not sure who we could trade for with them...personally i don't see anything good in Cleveland aside for TT maybe...and Love let's say, personally i'm not a fan but eh, not sure we can be picky at this point.
- Suns have more young/interesting pieces but, Warren isn't a great fit imo, Jackson is probably not available...i always liked Holmes, would still love to get him.
- Atlanta = Bazemore
热火：现在打的无比挣扎，他们很有可能在赛季结束后获得个不错的乐透位置，但他们还要付税，这实在不怎么样。他们有几个还挺符合我火需求的，至少账面上不错（温斯洛和JJ），应该也不会付出太高代价。 奇才：和热火一样，他们的波特、奥布雷、莫里斯应该也都还不错。 骑士：除了性感的臀应该没有不能交易的球员，但不知道我们能换到想要的人吗？个人观点，除了离卡T好像没有，爱神，怎么说呢，我不是他的粉丝，但是现在也轮不到我们这么挑剔了。 太阳：有几个年轻的球员还不错，涡轮可能不太合适，杰克逊可能换不来，霍尔莫斯我一直很喜欢，能换到他的话不错。
Eric Gordon, Brandon Knight, 1st and 2nd round picks for DeRozan
I doubt if Pops will trade with Houston.
DeRozan is a mental midget and a certified playoff choker.
really dude DeRozan? 2 Point bricker
They're looking for wing depth. If they can't get it, they're seeking small deals that improves their flexibility going into the deadline.
Good reasoning. Wing help. I was wondering why the removal of House and not waiving MCW (PG). Both
contracts are Non-Guaranteed and MCW is about $600,000 more and probably doesn’t have as much value as House
in a trade.
spurs is tanking for next Tim Duncan, Pops like CP and Harden, he may do us a favor
need cyberx to confirm
Yeah but they aren't going to be stupid either...DeRozen can fetch them a better package than anything Morey would be willing to give them...
I hope it's not J.R. Smith.
TIme to start the escape of this underwhelming season and get lost in trade ideas.
How about Simmons and Augustin from Orlando?
Simmons is a SG/SF who can play some defense (12M x2 year deal, unguaranteed next season)
Augustin is a PG who can shoot (14M x2 year deal)
Probably not happening but this wouldn't be that bad maybe...would provide some depth and more flexibility going forward.
i was thinking it was simmons or shumpert.
nothing fancy but at NBA SF would be great.
Yep. Simmons isn't shooting well so far this season, but he's playing in Orlando so, who knows...the Magic have also guys like Fournier, Isaac and Iwundu in the same spot and signed for more years, Ross is expiring but playing better, providing quick points off the bench, i think it's fair to expect Jonathon as the guy who's going to get traded eventually.
He's a Houstonian too
Troy Daniels is shooting well
Maybe we can sign Melo? He would be rejuvenated on the Rockets. Wait...
While we are throwing out names, for some reason I suspect Jabari Parker could be a target.
First Round pick
2nd Round Pick
2nd round pick
Rockets roll with...
I like the idea of Simmons, and I think he has a higher ceiling than Ennis. IMO by next season he would be a better starter than Ennis. The problem is the fact that he hasn't shot well for years is likely to get him benched by MDA.
Upside: good passer, good defender, good effort, good/flexible contract, hometown guy, spent first 2 seasons in Spurs system
Downside: below average wingspan (means he will never bother taller guys at the 4), poor shooter thus far
Knight, Gordon and Chriss for Fournier, Simmons and Augustin wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if that suits the Magic (don't know where their head is about the roster). We downgrade fairly significantly from Gordon to Fournier off the bench, but we really help our wing and PG depth giving us some more balance. All 3 of the guys we'd be getting are decent to very good passers as well and we have been extremely lacking in guys who can pass other than Paul and Harden. Would keep our picks, allowing us to dump salary in the summer.
What are the possibilities of trading for Mario Hezonja? I think in our current landscape, he could finally play up to his potential.
I'm guessing we're going to get Bazemore. Bazemore will finally be our real Ariza replacement.
He can't be a real Ariza replacement. He doesn't have the same size and length. Rockets need true wings with forward size, not guards that can play wing. In that case, I'd probably rather just play Harden at SF full time.
crazy thing is, theres no rumors of rockets talking to any players BUT we know certain players are available. makes me wonder like a mother f*cker
