    Now that Lebron is off the table, we can get down to focusing on how to retain our crucial players while adding another piece or two to the puzzle. So how does that happen?

    What's your best guess on Morey's next move?

    Daryl Morey is Mr. February. Rockets resign their guys, Darryl poaches another guy that's undervalued and underpaid this summer, then waits for a disgruntled star this February and trades for him using EG and Ryno and picks. The rockets stay afloat or even near the top of the west until the cavalry arrives. That's my guess. But what do I know?

    Buy 5 half gallons of ice cream and a keg of beer, and lock himself inside his man cave with a stack of DVDs?

    I would be ecstatic if we got Butler while losing Ariza.

    i love Jimmy, but why would Minny trade him, and what do we possibly have that Minny could want? Hard to see this happening.

    do whatever it takes to get rid of Anderson's contract. He still has 2 years left of screwing over our FA seasons.

    the immediate core will be back and the team will look to add rotational guys who are more two way players to fit their gameplan against GS. easier said than done but theres a few players out there

    Morey will focus on bolstering the depth and adding quality players that are actually playable against the Warriors. Ideally, he'll get rid of the ones who aren't (looking at Ryno and Nene).

    I guess he will look if it's possible to swap Anderson for a better player with a similar contract.

    Bazemore might fit this scenario pretty well, we wanted him two years ago, good fit here, younger than Ryan, could eventually replace Ariza and/or Luc in the rotation and still give us a 20M contract to move.

    If we would be able to swap Ryan with him with just minor assets like a couple of 2nd rounders and/or maybe a young player it would be a good move.

    Other than this, i don't really know, with the MLE we would've to sign the 2nd round picks we just drafted, that would leave us with something around 3 or 3.5M to work, not sure it's enough to give us a good bench player, probably not.

    The pipe dream here is Butler at this point, i guess...but i don't think the Wolves will move him until maybe the deadline if they underachive.

    Exactly. Also, every day that passes makes that Ryno deal a bit more palatable. Teams might be more willing to pay $30 M and have him for 1.5 seasons over the 3 seasons we were trying to shove down people's throats last summer. Hence why I think he won't be that hard to deal come February.

    Not to pick on you, but I see this all the time and don't understand this logic.

    I'm not saying Ryno is an all-star or even playing at the level he should, but the issue is the idea that he is the source of all our woe is comical. The guy isn't a locker room cancer, and he isn't the worst forward in the league. Is he subpar to what we're paying him? Sure.

    It isn't enough to just get rid of him. You have to flip him for assets worth more than he is. The issue is, who would be willing to deal and send us a player better than Ryno, for Ryno and picks? Again, the guy isn't a cancer in the locker room or starting any **** with people. What the rockets need more than just getting rid of ryno, is just Ryno to get back to form. Or, as I've outlined previously, another team to want to reboot and cut ties with a star. Ryno isn't the most immediate of problems, the problem is, this is an arms race and we are running out of guns out their available to pick up.

    I believe Anderson will be traded at the deadline for someone like Kevin Love who will no longer want to be in Cleveland...
