    In case of an injury we are thin at guard and forward. Does Morey need to make a move for someone who can at least play ball? I think a guard / wing should definitely be sought after. Maybe a free agent out there? You can just sense a playoff injury with nobody on the roster to step up. Work your magic Daryl!!

    At guard we have a rotation of Harden, Paul and Gordon. That's literally the strongest guard depth chart in the league.

    At forward we have Ariza, Anderson, Tucker, and Mbah A Moute (though he's out). How the hell are we thin at either?

    p.s. we're on pace to win 70 games. Even if Harden were to miss 5 games and we lose all 5, we'll be fine.

    Buy out. He may make a smaller move that is more for the offseason tho. Like a trade could be to send chinanu or some young guy for cash or a draft pick. To open up a roster spot for a buyout. But no he’s not trading for anything big. I can see him signing a guy like Tyson, Redick, demare carol, bogut, idk who is else on their last year of their contract but Morey wil chase anyone who gets bought out

    No, i'd like to get something at center cause i'm not sure we can trust Nene being healty and i'm not sure Black (which is in fact a nice contract to move) can eventually get the job done in the playoffs, and maybe a decent veteran pg just as insurrance, but like Reeko said just wait for buyouts.

    This dude would sign a 5 minute contract just long enough to pull his pants down and pinch a deuce off at mid court.

    Who has a better depth chart at center than we do?

    Capela, Nene, and Black are a perfect center rotation. We also often go small with Tucker or Anderson at 5.

    We have great centers.

    We do need one more guard .

    You saw how we scrambled to try and find someone at the beginning of the season when CP3 was out .

    But , we also do not know if Weber or Jackson or Bobby can serve in that role unless they get an opportunity .

    Troy Williams also should get an opportunity. Of course he's going to play differently in garbage time than he would with an actual unit on the floor.

    Black is fine . He's better than Harrell and Harrell played a key role for us during the reg season last year .

    Bucks just signed Sean Kilpatrick. Maybe the Rockets should've given him a shot and cut Weber.

    I believe we have a roster spot still we only have 13 in our team. So we could add 2 more players. I believe Morey is saving those spots to get someone before the trade deadline.
    Also bucks are waiving Gary Payton II what about him? Again

    Buy out market will be the Rockets best friend. Cannot and will not break this team up unless for third bonafide star willing to resign. That won’t happen, sooo yeah.... will wait til next year for Lebron.

    But buyout market will be the place to get help

    Honestly after watching tonight's game, I wouldn't be surprised if we made a run for Tyson Chandler. It might be after he gets waived but Tarik Black is not the Center we need coming off the bench if Nene or Clint go down ever.
