    How are the contract rules including trades enforced? With more language. Morey used the CBA and it's own language to create this deal. Enforcing "spirit of the rule" clause is bullshit and is too ambiguous for a legal document.

    I feel like this has been answered but just to make sure, @ch44 @BimaThug :
    There is no way to make Nene’s contract worth $10 million in outgoing salary by the trade deadline? Even if it’s $10 million on the books or we somehow guarantee that full amount?

    Taking up the roster spot and costing us that much money is pretty brutal.
    If this stands, I don’t know why I’m saying if, but since it will, isn’t Morey a little to blame here? Should he have not ran this by the league before attempting? That is atrocious. This really messes with our summer.

    Also. Don’t we have Nenes bird rights? And aren’t teams usually allowed to re-structure signings? Wouldn’t it make more sense to restructure this as a $10 mil contract guaranteed?

    League office cancels Morey’s contract.
    Morey cancels all China’s contracts.

    I hoped the league office learned its lesson.

    Rockets won’t make a move unless it is money-driven. They will not attempt to make the team better. We know this.

    That's hyperbole.

    They will try to improve the team but they will also make moves that are money-driven.

    Bima seems 100% convinced of Tilman's cheapness

    I wouldn't pay a tax for a Coach who only uses 7 players and a team that routinely plays down to competition. Show me some fight and then we'll talk would be my stance.

    Owner doesn't pay tax anyway so that's not saying much

    That argument doesn't stand with the Ariza decision -- his first decision.

    Then you would be just as bad as Tilman.
