    This has Rockets and Melo written all over it... I could see where Rockets kinda told Ariza a price and that Melo was a possibility...

    we need playmakers on the wing. his inability to create his own offense off the dribble or shoot at an elite level hurt us.

    his defense was great at times, average most of the time. luc can probably replace him if his shoulder is right. plus we can use our MLE.

    I’d put money on the following trade.

    Anderson, 1st round pick for Bazemore

    We can replace an aging Ariza. Thanks for the run, Trev.

    Good riddance. Played best ball last season during our longest winning streak of the season with Aruza out injured. Get Luc in and healthy

    Did that egg he left them hatch something? I personally think Luc is a better defender if he has two shoulders.

    Wait... did Morey even make an offer?

    I'd imagine Rockets would be willing to pay $10-$12 million for his services.

    That was contract year threeza who stunk it up in the playoffs too. Good for him getting his money, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over this. I have faith in Morey.

    I think the rockets might have a replacement lined up. Surely an injury prone Luc is not going to be a longterm starter

    He was streaky because he got tired and yes he broke down. I mean if he lifted weights and built strength then I promise you he would not have gone 0-12 in game 7. You could tell he didn't take weight lifting seriously. And we can't blame it on frame. Look at Gianni's year 1 vs now.

    Can't blame him. $15M is a lot of dough.
