    Bringing in some smart veterans that are proven winners could help counteract some of the dumbness Westbrook will bring in and make me feel a lot better about this trade.

    I am little pissed that Morey didn't go after DeMarre Carroll. He's such a great fit with very reasonable price.

    Iggy is on the wrong side of 34.

    We desperately need shooting for Westbrook and Harden to maximize their greatness. It is sooooooo critical.

    I don't really like Iggy much, unless we have a time machine... Then again if saved just for playoffs it could work

    Really don't like the idea of trading for Iggy @ 17 mil expiring. That's salary we won't be able to replace next offseason. Tyson Chandler would be awesome.

    True, but he might be what we need, and what we can get, for this yr.34 yr old Iggy > than what's out there for a Vet Min.

    I certainly wouldnt give MDA an extension at this point...

    His laissez faire way of dealing with his stars could turn into the ultimate sh!t show with WB and Harden... I'd def want to see how he handles the pair together before giving him an extension...

    Iggy is making $17 million this season. Unless I'm missing something, we'd have to give up Gordon to match salaries (or Capela, but need wise that'd be even dumber). Is that worth it?

    I like the idea of him on this team, but not necessarily if it requires giving up a key piece of the rotation.

    I want Iggy (He was the 4th best wing defender in the league last year) but if you are going to pick him up you HAVE to as well pick up a shooting big.

    They COULD conceivably turn the Westbrook trade into a 3 team trade to get Iggy as well.

    Kyle Korver should be added as a 12th man, locker room guy

    At first I was excited for this off season, now I just want it to be over. And I want Tillman to be done as an owner as well. What a clown.

    No not yet. They are close to coming to an agreement but Morey and the Rockets are pushing hard for him.
