    So hopefully between Gordon, Anderson, Lou, and Capsi maybe one of them might land some 3's during a game. JK we just going to add another guy that will catch the cold bug when playing for Rockets to blow our minds.

    We don't know. The Rockets might have wanted him. Keep in mind the Wolves have 12M in cap room. Casspi might be getting a richer deal with the Wolves than what the Rockets could offer. And we Casspi might get more minutes in a rotation with the Wolves than he might have gotten here. Those could be real factors.

    Those are real factors. No might about it. Casspi could wind up starting there.

    I think the fact that Thibs flew to meet him and promised him playing time played a big role in his decision. It's not about the money this season, but for the next one.
    He will be a free agent next summer, going to a playoff team is a risk. He might have struck gold if given the chance in prime time TV, but he might just sit on the bench like he did with the Rockets the last time around.
    That would have been damaging to his next contract.
    I still think if the Rockets would've approach him earlier he would take the deal, and he would have been a big upgrade over Dekker in this Playoffs, but I get why they want to give Dekker a chance to ay in the playoffs for the experience.

    Dorell Wright
    Jordan Hamilton
    Rudy Fernandez

    Do these guys still have what it takes to play NBA level ball? I think they'd be a decent fit.
