    My thoughts as well.

    Nanu is never going to play and Black is no longer needed with the Wright singing.

    Perhaps 'Arron Afflalo'( i had to spell check before writing it correctly) cause Codman says 'Same to AA' right after speaking favorably about Mo

    Black will be waived for JJ, then we have Williams, Onuaku and Qi that we could waive too.

    Yes. I asked @BimaThug if the Rockets could add another buyout vet and STILL remain under the Luxury Tax. He said they could. (with the assumption of another roster spot being available).

    If Mo Speights get Bought out (Wouldn't that be another great piece to add)
    or he would probably head to the Warriors (Although i think there is some kind of exception of him not being able to sign with the last team he played for
    also just thought about another player that can help defensively (Tony Allen)

    FYI, regarding Mo Speights (that @Codman has alluded to), for the Magic, Vuc is coming back from his injury on Feb 22nd. So I could see the Magic waiting until then to potentially buying out Speights.

    Buyouts have to be done by March 1st for the player to be "playoff eligible."

    I was assuming the reason they realeased Troy was because Morey thought/knew he would get claimed off waivers and that money could be used towards a buyout candidate. Are we still holding strong for Mo?

    Bosh isn't going to get cleared to play. Might as well forget about him.
