    If the deal is for 3 years, it means the Rockets are using a part of the MLE (probably slightly above the $500K or so rookie minimum) on Johnson.

    Edit: Oops... grammatical error in title.

    Lull is never coming. He shouldn't even be considered a Rocket or anywhere close to a Rocket.

    so, how long until Nick Johnson is asking for a raise and posing half naked on the beach in buffalo jeans?

    You may be right but I believe this article implies that while others were dreaming of trades, the rockets were trying to persuade Sergio to come over. Looks like they got their answer and will now begin to use their funds appropriately.

    ^ If that is true, I'm willing to bet that we give the rest to Marion

    Our Johnson is small.

    But plays hard.

    Our Johnson is aggressive and gets into places he shouldn't

    I was thinking he plays more like a Big Johnson when he is going hard, no softness in his game...
