    Welcome to Houston Russell Westbrook! It’s official, the trade is complete. I know this thread will probably die quick because we’ve known for a week, and it’s not controversial, but let’s try to keep it positive please. There are plenty of other threads for concerns and criticisms. Highlights, welcomes, pictures, stories, general positive energy would be much appreciated.

    If the trade is really complete as it this is a huge problem. Rockets had 10 mill of cap space in trade to absorb which is super valuable for us considering we didn’t use our MLE... and we just totally pass on it.

    F Tilman if true

    You can’t say something is official and not provide a source.

    Ban OP.

    10m we were able to take back and couldn't even bring in 2Pat for a potential trade piece in the future?

    I never really thought about how heavy the impact of our new owner would have, but Tilman feels like he's sunk his teeth in deep to this FO and breathing down Morey's neck any time a dollar is being spent.

    There's no excuse not to take back something in this trade unless Presti was completely unwilling to cooperate further given how much of his team has been gutted in such a short time, but I don't think that is the case.

    Tilman, you said we got the green light so back off and let Morey do his thing.

    Still can't believe Westbrook is going to play with a Rockets jersey in a couple of months...

    Nobody wants CP0’s contract bro. We were already trading a negative asset to OKC. Why would they sweeten the deal lol? Presti ain’t giving up more for a virtually immovable contract.

    I've posted several times about how very much I really dislike this trade.


    I hope I'm wrong. Go Rockets!
