    MDA has a lot on his mind and I’m sure Tilman would want another coach before he trades Westbrook or Harden if we don’t do well this year.

    Tilman never really liked MDA, that is a fact now. I am not going to believe otherwise.

    MDA does not make sense now, he just lets WB and Harden roam free.

    If Harden wanted him out, he would already be out of the door.

    Finally some real news, assuming we can get Iggy for change, I am all for it. TC would be a good addition too although I would like us to sign some more vets like Thabo (or Korver?) and a 4/5 type of player that can hit the 3. Not sure who that would really be though at this point. We really could use some younger players with athleticism and/or potential like Justin Holliday. There are a couple still out there.

    Yea! Let's trade our remaining assets for a 35 year old who can't shoot so he can play next to a point guard who can't shoot and a center who cannot shoot! Iggy on a buyout or bust.

    When this pairing struggles D'Antoni is going to get fired.

    I think there is a very high probability now that D'Antoni will not be the coach of the Rockets after this coming season with at least a 25% chance he doesn't make it through the year.

    There's also a relatively strong possibility that Morey is out after this season as well.

    Reading the name Chandler in the thread topic, I had a mini panic attack thinking about Parsons.

    Great.

    WB can't shoot for ****. Capela can't shoot. Now let's add Iggy another 3 point bricker while we continue to jack up 3 after 3

    Sounds like a winning ploy

    They're going to extend MDA. It just isn't top priority right now.

    I miss Les....

    From what i can remember, "Hands on" owners' teams have never done well. I'm not liking this much involvement from Tillman.

    Man, Iggy's FT % and 3 pt % went to the crapper the 2nd half of the season. Did it come out that he was playing hurt? Also, wonder if Westbrook was playing hurt last year? Something didn't seem right with CP3 last year either so will be interesting to see where they are all at health wise next season.

    I am not so sure about Morey, Morey has always adapted to his environment, this time the owner is even more hard headed.

    I am not even sure what you can do defensively.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Iggy? He's too old and not a good enough shooter to be our starting SF. Honestly I feel that EG or House would be more effective than him.

    Can our NG bros (Frazier, Chiozza, Davis, IHart, Clark) plus a first rounder get us RoCo?

    I really liked the idea of Iguodala when we had CP3 and Harden. But with Westbrook, that's an awful lot of mediocre to outright terrible shooters in the rotation.

    Definitely all for adding Chandler. Even at his advanced age he still excels at cleaning the glass and protecting the rim and finishing lobs.

    I don't think Morey would quit, but I think there is absolutely a chance he gets fired.

    That is weird though, getting fired over a decision made by the owner himself with Harden in his ear?

    I hope he knows his way around GM town, because there won't be another one who just seemingly is so obedient.

    Roco would be much better than Iggy but he has real value. He's on a good contract, is an elite defender and an elite shooter. I'd be surprised if we could trade for him.

    I'm with you though. I like Iggy as a player, don't like him as a starter now. Our shooting is going to be miserable.
