    As much as i would want some of the guys listed above, I could see us striking out since we only have the prorated minimum to offer coupled with no playing time available unless something dramatically changes via trade. Our extra roster spot will probably go to Bobby Brown, unfortunately.

    Of course there isn't. Hasn't stopped the board clamoring for him for weeks/months now. (Maybe Codman hinted at it?)

    Don't want Bogut, Lopez, Monroe! Give me Tyson or bust!

    Well the Rockets have two roster spots to play with (Williams & Qi).

    Personally I think they should go hard at Jameer Nelson and Tony Allen.

    Nelson is the perfect 3rd point guard for the Rockets. Tony Allen isn't a perfect fit but he can defend and brings a lot of intangibles.

    If Lopez becomes available later on, the Rockets can always move Black.

    doesn't look like allen has anything left in the tank. broken fibula. been out for 2 months and still hasn't recovered.

    Nelson is an interesting pickup as an emergency pg.

    Would like Monroe but if wants to go to a fringe playoff team or a team with no shot at winning the championship then let that loser go.

    Also would love to get Evans to bolster the bench and backcourt.

    Tyson Chandler would be a good get as well if he comes lose but I dont see the suns cutting him lose.

    Joe Johnson would be a good addition but I don't know how we will find minutes for him.

    Need Back up C and PG.

    Monroe and Evans would do wonders. or Chandler.

    We will have to wait to see on Allen, he is supposed to be close to coming back. Defensively he looked solid early in the year but I do not know what his physical fitness level is right now.

    I would be fine rolling Nelson out for 10 minutes a night.

    Joe Johnson especially would be a nice addition.

    Honestly, and of 5-6 guys would be a benefit over what we have at the end of the bench.

    i didn't think he looked well at all beginning the year. he definitely showed hes on his final stretch. either way the rox really dont need another wing of his type at this point. especially one who can't shoot. if it were bw the two id definitely prefer nelson as far as potential contributor

    I think we need another big and a pg so, i'd say Nelson would be perfect (won't ask for major minutes but can still ball) and Bogut if he's still able to play (i didn't watch him play this season) and assuming Lopez won't get bought out.

    All those guys would still be ok to get anyway.

    Jameer Nelson looks like a great fit as a 4th guard. Would love that.

    A while back I brought up Joe Johnson's name as someone I thought might get bought out. He is a great fit in Houston as a small ball PF with 3pt range. Plus he can create his own shot. Would rather have him shooting 3's than Anderson. Plus he is very familiar with MDA's system from his Phoenix days.

    Lopez as a stretch 5, be able to play 5-out, would be nice and a good fit.

    Not really a fan of Bogut.

    Top choice for me would be Monroe and the Bogut. We don’t need the guard play. Need to strengthen the interior.
