    Well he didn't chose to go there he was traded so it's a possibility. Also this guy is showing he can be a cancer and for that I don't want him on the rockets.

    I am glad we did not trade for him now. Seems to be lowering his value each team he goes to.

    Gordon, Clark, Chriss, 1st and 2nd for Butler. They get a guard that can actually shoot 3s and defend and we get Tomball Jimmy.

    Back to the Tweet though: It's funny that Otto Porter for Butler is thrown out there considering the Sixers had a cheaper version of Porter in Covington on the roster. Hell, he's actually outplaying Porter right now too.

    INB4 Woj:

    "Sixers felt they were not going to resign Butler for one reason or another, they didn't want to lose him for nothing after they traded good pieces to get him in Covington and Saric, but they also wanted to move Butler to the other conference. That's when talks between Phila and Houston intensified, the Rockets have been after Butler early in the season and you know Daryl Morey is always ready to take big risks, he won't back down when there's a chance to get a star, and at this point both teams thought it was the right move for both parts. Other teams tried to get in the mix, Miami and Brooklyn on top, but Brand didn't want to make teams in the same conference more competitive ( :D ), and those teams were not willing to overpay to get Butler at this point of the season, Clippers had interest too, but not willing to part with their best assets cause they like their chances to beat the Raptors and the Lakers in free agency to sign Kawhi and/or Durant. Still no word on the chances Butler resigns with Houston without meetings with other teams, but i got word that in Houston they're confident they can keep Butler, afterall he's born there and wanted to be a Rockets when he was a kid, the team is contending and willing to pay him, he should fit in well with their game too"

    :eek:

    i feel like jimmy wouldn't get along with cp3 and harden.

    jimmy seems like he wants to go to a lottery team with no stars so he can be the clear cut alpha and make the highest salary in the nba.

    Exactly. At first I thought it was a pity the 4 picks deal didn't go through but damn this is ridiculous.

    Minny isn't a lotto team and Philly is a top 3 team in the East. How can you not be happy two times? Maybe he won't be satisfied unless he is the main franchise star.

    There does seem to be a pattern; but maybe he had his heart set on one of the other teams that was pining for his services.

    I don't know. If he actually wants to be here, then I'm all for it (if it can be done). If he wants to be the Alpha Male, well, we have that. He'd have to settle for Beta and a championship.

    I think he already somewhat denied such things, he was saying how much he loves philly and the fans. It’s clear that he can’t play with players who are better than him or that run the offense. He’s option two here at best....

    It doesn't matter how much he had his heart set on other teams if he really hated Sixers then he should have said something. Since he didn't object then he should be a professional and not be a freaking cancer to the team. Look at Kawhi, every news outlet says he is LA bound but he is still professional and tries to win for the Raptors every night.

    This whole "winning" thing of his is just an excuse don't tell me Embiid and Simmons don't want to win lol. Dude's become a full blown cancer at this point 0% chance it would work out in Houston if he isn't happy at KaT and Simmon's usage rate he is gonna go ballistic at Harden's usage rate.

    "INB4 Woj" means he had the time to write up a short story, but then again don't we all...

    Would be interesting to have 3 homegrown Houstonians rep the Rockets in uniform, regardless of zip code. All we would need is Dream to return to the team as a personal development coach to make all their wishes come true.
