    Are we trying to clear cap space, or are we going into full tank mode?

    sad to see the day we have to trade Scola, but he would be worth much more to a contending team.

    :( one of my favorite players. I understand why he should go but I really hope he's dealt to a contending team (prefer the east) ....

    he'll end up at a crap orginization where he'd be the best player... Toronto, Charlotte Cleveland washington.. I would love to see him go to a contender.. but his contract blows and they wont have pieces we are looking for

    Thanks for the update but to be honest this isn't news worthy to any of us who follow the Rockets.

    Cap space and not necessarily tank mode but rebuild mode. We need spots to play the young guys. They tank mode could be just a consequence of this strategy.

    We could trade him to the Spurs for a second round Euro stash they have who could become the next.......Luis Scola!

    Does this mean no Howard? IIRC They wanted to keep scola if they got Dwight.
