    Yeah, people were hoping we signed him with the minor exception, the BAE in order to have the full MLE (9M) to use on a pretty solid player, now we can only use around 5/6M of that exception.

    LOL. Or, what I said at the time they could've had him for. And maybe kept him in that +40% from 3 form that he had before they sat him down.

    But then Fertitta couldn't start #LuxuryTaxSavings.

    Glad he's back. Hope we get the player from the early regular season, and not the playoffs version.

    This could be out of our NON tax payer MLE and we could still have around 6 mill to spend IF we decide to hard cap ourselves.


    Technically, we could still get Butler and Noel

    This happens because of no Butler.

    i'm thinking if we were getting butler, then why would we need both house and green. seems more like this is it, this is the team on media day plus another couple signings

    Has to be, doesn't it? I vaguely remember that the most the Rox could match if he became a non-Bird RFA was something like 2.2 per year, without dipping into one of the exceptions.

    I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt because we don’t know what else will happen, but I can’t say I am happy so far.

    Then again the Rockets still think they have a good shot at Butler lol.

    The full MLE is only for non tax paying teams. We just have the Tax MLE.

    I’ve accepted the window is closed.

    House on this deal is solid value going forward.

    i'm not gonna lie bro. i am beyond furious at what these fcukers did in the past year. not using part of last season's MLE on house screwed up our regular season -- we likely would have gotten the 1st seed with homecourt against GS in WCF and harden may have won MVP. instead our season ended in disaster AND now we've had to squander the chance of adding a solid free agent with this year's MLE. if houston had a second major newspaper (that wasn't on the rockets payroll) these fcukers would be blasted in print daily for what they've done, particularly in harden's prime.

    Like House, glad to have him back, hope this isn't the "starter" they were talking about adding with the MLE.

    Another trickle down of cheap ass tilman. We could have given this deal last year. Cost us our MLE this offseason.
