    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2323885-buchers-nba-trade-buzz-are-the-rockets-in-play-for-a-big-name-point-guard

    Here's the transcription of what he says in the vid:

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have been the most aggressive team so far on the trade market, so which team is likely to follow them? Everyone around the league right now is expecting that it’s the Houston Rockets -- no surprise based on their history or the fact that they just went out and got Josh Smith added into their equation in spite of chemistry questions. So Daryl Morey, no doubt is burning up the phones, and the expectation is he’s going to go hot and heavy after a point guard. They love Patrick Beverley, but ideally he is the third guard in that rotation. And to give an indication of just how aggressive they might be, sources around the league are saying don’t count Deron Williams out from the Brooklyn Nets, even though he has that fat contract and right now he has a rib injury. Far more likely is that they go back to a guy they already know, Goran Dragic, who is in a crowded back court with the Phoenix Suns and could be got with that New Orleans #1 pick that the Rockets have right now.

    I really REALLY dislike that guy when it comes to anything basketball related he says some of the dumbest things and will not waver when proven wrong time and time again. One example he said he would rather have derrick rose over Lebron James....

    I'd believe Gogi, but Deron Williams -- no way. Didn't Morey himself indicate something to the effect that Williams was a target, but his play had changed that. Isn't he coming off the bench now for the Nets. I'm very doubtful of this. I feel like if Morey couldn't shake loose Gogi, he'd go after a guy like Lawson with the Nuggets, who could probably be had. Denver letting go of Mozgov seems to be an indication that they know they aren't going to compete in the west and want to stack up as many draft picks as they can. Plus, you know how Morey feels about that '09 draft class.

    Bucher? So I guess we can safely say that Deron Williams is not a target. Hooray!

    Can someone explain why we keep getting linked to DWill? Is there something Morey sees that we don't?

    If Dragic could be gotten with that NOP pick, Dragic would already be in a Rockets uniform.

    Forget D.Will, has there ever been talk of Houston & Ty Lawson? Dragon/Lawson both seem like an ideal fit with our current group of guys.

    I bet it just occurred to him yesterday that he should check out CF for some idea.
