    if he wants to win we are the most appealing destination which i think it wouldn't be the case since our roster and depth would limit his minutes.

    You need as many guys as possible so MDA will expand his bench and stop his 7 samurai strategy. Deng can play 3 positions on the court, he'll he good in case anybody else gets injured. Its also possible he will outplay Ariza so he can be the starter and 3za and Moute will be the bench.

    Of course all this is if he gets bought out. No way we want that contract...we are already paying Anderson lol!

    On a minimum free agent deal, I would love to add Deng. He's a smart, and versatile front court players. The Rockets could run a true 10 man rotation so minutes could actually be held down in the meaningless regular season.

    Any suggestion of adding him with his current contract is absolutely ridiculous.

    Eric gordon looks like someone who went to work during the off season. He added to his game and repetoire. He became one of the deadliest 3pt shooters in the league. He came into camp in shape. He was also only only 28...
    Deng is 32 and obviously the only thing he has added to his game is probably 50 - 100 lbs of fat. If he really wanted to play he could have come into the season in better shape. Who would we trade for him? The guys on our team all seem to have a great work ethic. Gym rats, all love to hoop, and some just love to sleep. Hell even Ryan Anderson who just got married spent time adding to his game. Ariza as well who looks like he went to school on how to attack the basket more. We do not need to disrupt this teams' progress by picking up Deng.

    I'm always a fan for more tall, lengthy defensive-minded players, and Luol did fill that role. Not sure how much lateral quickness he has left at this age. Plus his offensive game was always more predicated on the midrange game if I remember right. Nonetheless, if it's for cheap, why not?

    We should add 25-29 yr old veterans and not 30 year olds. We got enough of them.

    He's been pretty shitty ever since he got that contract from the Lakers. Pass.
