    Vince Carter (ATL)
    Wilson Chandler (BRK)
    Matthew Dellavedova (CLE)
    Tristan Thompson (CLE)
    Andre Iguodala (MEM) pretty much headed to 1 of LA teams IMHO
    Bruno Caboclo (MEM)
    Jeff Teague (MIN)
    E’Twaun Moore (NOP)
    Derrick Favors (NOP)
    Marcus Morris (NYK)

    These the ones that stand out

    Vince is a Try Hard. I think his maturity and eagerness would help us

    You bolded the wrong Atl player I am assuming. I would edit that post.

    I see that as his likely next destination. It's a team desperate for a top GM, and Morey is experienced enough now to be able to deal with Dolan. I mean, Dolan is a total tool like Fertitta, but at least he's a tool with disposable income.

    And Morey would salivate at the chance to live and work in the live theater capital of the world.

    Would China attempt to thwart his being hired elsewhere in the NBA, and if so, would Dolan care?

    I still think he dives into something different than the NBA if fired from the Rockets. Maybe esports, maybe teaching; somewhere with some yet unidentified market inefficiencies and information asymmetry he can exploit.

    I'm a Rockets fan and we have the best GM ever. I hope he never leaves.

    If Derrick Favors gets bought out he would be a wonderful backup big!!

    you haven’t seen the team with a fully healthy gordon yet. We definitely should try to get another big, but you can’t know the ceiling of the current roster until you see it. Having another serviceable ball handler who can drive and knock down threes consistently will have compounding returns

    A round in the playoffs, maybe two if the bracket breaks right.

    Marcus Morris is certainly worth a #1 for the Rockets. He defends well, he can stretch the defense, create some and is a perfect positional fit. However without trading Capela or Tucker, they cannot send out the requisite salary. You can thank the owner for that.... instead Morris will end up a Laker or Clipper.

    First, the gent has to find his way onto the court. Not easy.

    If Gordon comes back shooting the 3 like he did before knee issues, the Rockets will be in a solid position concerning perimeter shooting. McLemore and Gordon are both well above average volume three point shooters. Harden will shoot somewhere between 35-38% on 3’s... Tucker will knock down corner 3’s and House has shot them well.

    Gordon should help a little defensively as well.

    To me it is the potential cumulative impact of Gordon and a rotation wing added from trade... that should help the defense quite a bit and also help our transition offense.

    Don't see Favors or Morris as buyout candidates - NOP/NYK can get real value if they trade them at the deadline.

    I do love Marvin and Henson as realistic targets, though. Marvin is a long 3/4 that is very solid defensively and has little value to a rebuilding Charlotte team. Henson is a long 4/5 that can block shots and has a passable outside jumper.

    Would love Favors, but there should be trade market for him, still too good of a player.

    Otherwise, give me Bismack and Bruno (both have +7-6 wingspans) and would immediately improve length, athleticism, rim running, rim protection and overall defense.

    I was trying to be as inclusive / realistic as possible. In a worse case scenario - if teams think NOP or NYK are asking too much come trade deadline - I could see them as buyout candidates. But yeah some of those players I mentioned, definitely hold cachet as trade targets.
