    That is a great news for the clutchfans. The rockets do not need give up four 1st rounds like last time, and they can afford him a full MLE, it will be worked out very well.

    You just figured that out?!

    Hell, it was more entertaining in the beginning with the pidgin English. Wish you'd been on board then. WAY FUN!

    Well, I overdid with the humor or non humor, was supposed to have some sarcasm in it.

    In this situation do we bring back MCW, Iman Shumpert and Chris Chiozza to fill the guard spots that CP3 and Gordon previously held?

    What leverage? His leverage is every FA team out there with cap space not us. He doesn’t need us we desperately need him. So far we have heard nothing from Butler either way. We are only going off the fuel from our insider sources. Much more likely it doesn’t work out but this is how these things go.

    For the record I don't think the rox will get Jimmy but if they have any chance at it, he's gonna have to opt in, which he can still do. I like this guys scenario

    Could we trade for Butler -not opting in- giving just Gordon as a rotation player?

    Nope.

    Edit, or maybe yes adding all the minimum guys plus Nene...that should be close and maybe doable actually. But it would still hard cap us since it would be a sign & trade so, yeah...

    Yeah, the same thing they said when Paul got traded here, i wonder if they're asking themselves the same question about the Lakers like "Antony Davis needs the ball in his hands and Jimmy Butler/Kemba Walker are walking through that door??? Good luck with all that"

    Meh , it has already been reported that Philly and Butler were closing in on a deal …. for Max money & years.

    Really no leverage to be had here by either side …. There's only one question - Does Butler want to stay there ?

    He's getting the max and they are willing to pay it.
