    Kyle O Quinn

    We could use one of them.

    Also I hear Sam Dekker is tearing it up in Russia. I’m guessing he’s ready to come back be play center for us.

    A center that can rebound is an obvious need.

    Placing that aside, Marvin and MKG are probably at the top of my list.

    Who gives a ****?

    This team is dead in the water and has no chance of winning anything.

    Waste of a historically good talent. Feel bad for Harden.

    These guys don’t move the needle, and Los Angeles will be the preferred destination for anybody, I imagine.

    Hope we get Marvin, I guess.

    The whole list in gross.

    Ed Davis, Damion Jones, Faried or O'Quinn if any become available, outside of that nobody.

    Man if the Rockets could bring back Faried, I wouldn’t mind that. Though it’s more likely they get KOQ formerly of the 76ers.

    Hey OP,

    simple question here :

    Why would any suck ass, under performed role players whose on a big or overpaid contract want to say good bye to the guaranteed money which they are not even sure what their next contract will be?
