    If we trade Beverley for Melo I'm not sure my brain will be able to process the purpose of that move.

    It would be a shock. Morey isn't Vlade or Vivek. He and others in the organization have told Bev he isn't being traded and have told all of the media people that they actually talk to that they aren't trading Bev.

    Consider the source when things are being reported. Marc Stein has no ear to the Rockets. Anything he reports that includes us comes from the other team OR it's planted by "you know who" who has a little obsession with attacking us through ESPN. Within minutes of that report getting out, multiple people who speak personally with Morey were green lighted to go out publicly and say no way Bev was being traded, which is something Morey RARELY does.

    The only Rockets players available for trade now are Ennis and KJ, and Morey will take a bag of chips for them.

    Maybe Morey will also throw in a Brewer signed jersey to sweeten the pot.

    No.

    The Rockets would move everyone other than Harden for the right return.

    I see no reason to deal Bev. He's been as integral to the team's success as anyone on the roster not named James Harden. As others have said, I wouldn't deal Beverley unless it meant bringing a legit second star to the roster. And I don't think Morey has the pieces to acquire George or Butler. He could throw Bev, Ariza, Dekker, Capela, a future 1st and all of his overseas assets at Indiana and Chicago, and both teams would hang up the phone before he ever finished the question.

    No,

    we are going all in, not gathering asset, if Morey will move anyone other than Harden, he will not trade a first rounder for Lou Williams.

    You don't break up a team when you are 4th in the league in the last couple months of the season.

    they're not going all in. They still have plenty of guys that can be moved on very good contracts. Morey is only solidifying the team as best he can for this years playoff run. He still has plenty to work with depending on how things go after this year

    Breaking up a team does not equal upgrading your depth from 1 player who was the 9th man and an extremely low draft pick you have no use for when you're trying to win now

    It depends on what you can get back.

    If Morey believes that the player or players he would receive are better than he would be giving up, you better believe the Rockets would make a deal.

    This team needs someone to play around Harden,

    not someone to take the ball away from him.

    Even if we got an all-star in return, I would be upset about Pat leaving.

    PLEASE, no Melo.
    I think if we pickup Melo we lose D'Antoni.
    Melo fudged MDA's system in NYC. Remember Linsanity? That was mostly while Melo was injured.
    That tells you something. MDA got to run 'his' system and players bought in. Wins piled up. The Knicks became exciting.
    When Melo came back, he demanded his touches, Linsanity died and Knicks go back to being mediocre.
    DO NOT WANT

    Maury should just tell these three teams that they can have anything they want besides Harden in return for Butler and Kristaps.

    I understand that logic. but, the team has to have a butler (or better) level player next to harden to win a title. as much as he has meant to this team over the years, bev has to be expendable in the right deal.

    I would take a Bev for Shump swap.

    It would hurt, because Bev has always been my favorite Rocket; but the deal would benefit us more than it hurts us.
