    Trevor Ariza is such a bad offensive player, his 3 point shot is streaky, he doesn't know how to dribble the ball quickly to attack the basket, slash. We really need to upgrade the Small Forward position. Ariza always goes missing

    Ariza trying to finish at the rim looks like he's never played basketball before.

    When Luc plays I am always excited to see him play, Luc is way better than Ariza. Ariza best years were on the Lakers he was so Athletic dunking the ball, Extremely quick in his young 20s Huge vertical on blocking 3 point shots. He has declined so much the last 3 seasons. Ariza played horrible last playoffs against the Spurs. Against the Wolves he panics so much not being able to shoot 3 pointers, cannot create off the dribble when the shot clock is going down always looking for Harden to bail Ariza out by his bad attempt to penetrate but always getting stuck. Please upgrade, A Small Forward who can really shoot 3 pointers and can really dribble. Paul George, Devin Booker are the Targets I want on the Rockets.

    Can the Rockets acquire Anthony Davis? Long, athletic 4 that can shoot 3s, guard the perimeter and create for himself. Perfect fit for our team.

    Only if he demanded a trade, I dun think the Pelicans are that dumb. He is younger than Harden.

    Would Take him over any big man, Cousins, KAT, LMA, Embiid (injuries).

    We should just trade Ariza for LeBron. He’s probably a decent fit at the 3

    Knee jerk, Ariza is always up and down so watch him rain 4-6 threes soon and finish at the rim like he has been lately. I do think we should pay Mbah over Ariza since he is losing a step a bit and Mbah has been more valuable in my humble opinion.

    I heard from people that know people that Kawhi Leonard is available.

    Time for Morey to pony up those coveted future 2nd round picks!

    Booker isn't available, but T.J. Warren might be available.

    I feel like I am in a lopsided manager game where I can still fleece every other GM and leave them high and dry.

    OP is really a Lakers fan pretending to be a Rockets fan. ;)

    Lakers fans think their team is the NY Yankees of the NBA where they can get anyone they want, no matter how stupid it would be for the other team.

    PHX sin't trading Booker, and he isn't leaving PHX.

    However, PHX will def not be trying to lose next season. There's a reason they want Mike Budenholzer
