    Meyers lenoard is not a bad choice. Can hit the three ball. Solid floor spacing big

    some players are about the money. Others want to win a ring and will do whatever it takes to get one. If you’re on a shitty ass team with no chance at a ring, why would you stay there? Tristan Thompson for instance is about the money. He wants to get paid. Already won a ring. Other players like Markieff Morris and some of the other above guys are coming up on the end of their careers. So now is their chance.

    They can’t all sign there. They only have a finite number of roster spaces.

    I'm sick and tired of the same song. Buyout candidates, 11th hour trade deadline moves to get under the cap, passing out draft picks like candy and completely mortgaging the future. It's like groundhog day here.

    Not necessarily. Remember a couple years ago when the Rockets wanted Wes Matthews. They didn’t get him and he went to the Pacers instead. Why? Because we were stacked at SF and SG and he didn’t think he would get any PT here. So he chose the Pacers. Well now...we need bigs and wings. We have spots at the 3,4, and 5. If the Pistons do buyout John Henson and Markieff Morris, both of them might choose here just so they can get PT and possibly win a ship.

    It's BS. Money is more important than winning bottom line. Toyota Center seats should be even more emptier after this sh!t show Tillman just put on.

    True, but LAc also have Zubac and Harrell playing minutes. I bet if a big thinks hes good enough he thinks he can win that job. Meanwhile here, MDA is gonna play smallball first and only deviate for extreme situations. Maybe morris comes here , but henson is looking at 15 mpg max for us

    Maybe Chris Paul and Melo will say a few good things about Harden so that encourage they to buy in.

    You're right but Rockets will have to wait for their turn in line.

    We'll get whoever is left after both LA teams fill their rosters.
