    Well, better than them going to some crap franchise. Philly seems to be blowing it up the right way.

    Not a bad move... Cheap contracts on a "Riggin for Wiggins" team that the GM is familiar with.

    We had to release them to make cap room for Howard to sign the max.

    Nope. Teams could have just traded all the players at once if that were the case.

    More likely, the Rockets didn't want to trade Anderson or Ohlbrecht until they saw exactly where the cap came in. When the cap came in generally as expected, the team needed to waive those guys.

    Sam was all too happy to scoop them up off waivers with his cap room.

    You think Hinkie loves the players or the contracts he designed more?

    ....me thinks its the contracts first, players second.


    -Honestly though I think James Anderson has a real shot at making the cut and getting some real pt this season. Ohbrecht however.... Im not real sure what they see in this guy. I could be wrong, but I just dont see it.

    which Hinkie probably had a big contribution to ...

    good for players to know they can join the Rockets and get their value up so other teams would want them too

    Josh Harris seems confident about this.
