    I know it's Kennedy, but it has been confirmed by other folks.

    For those that don't know Jherrod Stiggers:

    He's not a highly touted pick and will probably head for the D-league. Nevertheless, it is interesting to see that the machine never stops

    Kennedy is usually credible because he posts right after a credible source.

    Interesting. I'd like to announce that I'm entering the 2015 draft.

    Any pgs/playmakers worth a damn?

    I would like to get a playmaker, even one with questionable shooting touch. That can always be improved with time.

    We need a couple of those for next year.

    Delon Wright worth invite to our workout, J.P. Tokoto as well. Jherrod Stiggers probably was invited because he is local, 100% he will be undrafted, maybe RGV?

    I hope we keep Bev, and I pray to gawd that Morey is able to trade for someone like Lawson. The latter has his own flaws, but he would make life so much easier to Harden. Otherwise, bring a couple of potential playmakers and see if they could help.

    Prigs and Terry are too old to make a decisive difference. Johnson is lucky to have the pedigree or he would be in Russia by now.

    This is the most pressing needs for this team right now.

    Rockets are better off finding a good one in free agency. they are in win mode now. if they draft a good one, he will end up in the dleague the first year anyway. So what is the point? Also, even in his 2nd yr, it is unlikely McHale would play him anyway. I heard the Rockets are going after Corey Joseph this summer. Is this true?

    If you dangle D-Mo and picks, I can almost guarantee you will get a starting caliber pg, who may also be as young as D-Mo. That backup from Atlanta, Schroeder would look in red. That's just one example. D-Mo is the 8th most improved player this year, and I feel bad trading him, but that pg situation must be addressed for once and all. Harden deserves a running mate.

    Tyus Jones and Grant should be available at the Rocket's pick.

    This draft class is awful after the top 12. After that you look at best at bench players.

    Only if he dyes that horrible blonde patch off his head.

    I know. I understand people want to develop some personality, but that patch of hair is just not right.

    I think those guys who are currently backups (Peyton, Schroeder), including Lawson, can be got via trade. D-Mo will likely be the guy they ask in return. I would tempt them with Jones first, but if D-Mo has to be the sacrificial lamb, so be it. We have enough PFs, we need pgs.

    I don't mind Schroeder at all. Really quick and can break down defenses. His 3pt shooting has improved too.

    Exactly. Schroeder, Peyton do one thing very well that none of our pgs do: they put tremendous pressure on the defense by relentless driving to the rim. Besides, they are good defenders. Think of them as Bev, but more talented.

    This playoff series against the Clippers is exposing the real weakness at pg /

    Getting Schroeder would be a steal.

    Depends on what we would have to give up.

    Depends on what we would have to give up though. If it involves DMo then I am NOT down. Capela or TJones...maybe.

    It is not going to be cheap. Good, young pg with plenty of upside. I have to give to get.

    Forget young Dennis. He is considered the Hawks young franchise player by fans and FO alike. He is unavailable even with a package of DMO+ Jones + 2 firsts. Also Hawks still have the old fox Ferry behind the scenes. They won't make dumb trades.
    Better draft a PG you can control for the next 4 years for cheap or trade for an older one.

    Dwight's contract year is coming up, we aren't rolling with a rookie PG.

    I fully expect the pick and papa to be gone at the very least

    This pick should be traded.
