    You don’t waive players a day before Valentines Day.

    Troys agent walked into Moreys Office playing Toni Braxton - Unbreak My Heart.

    My guess would be Troy asked out initially, since he gets no PT... but for some reason changed his mind.

    But who knows.

    Bad look for Shams, in my opinion (and I'm Team Shams). He just deleted his original post saying Troy Williams will be waived.

    I was going to say, I already burned my Troy Williams jersey and bobblehead. Come on, people!

    P.S. Did either ever actually exist?

    we can only have 15 people right, how we are going to be able to sign 2 new players without dropping somebody? don't understand the logic behind keeping all these people anyway, since they are not going to get playing time at all, at least for this year.......

    Seriously, why would he delete the tweet? If the story just changed there is no shame in having something that was wrong.

    All it does is it make my thread look bad!

    I think this isn’t a high profile enough release in the grand scheme of things to hurt him on a national level among fans.


    You would certainly have a better perspective on how it affects him among league offices however.

    You know what, not a bad point. Someone links to that twitter post and it looks credible with bad info. Interesting dilemma I guess for a breaking news machine.

    Rockets will instead waive Other as I suspected it to be.

    Is it possible to re-negotiate Troy to a two-way contract and stash him?

    He may have gotten bad info from an agent. I don't think he's quite as connected to league execs as guys like Woj and David Aldridge.
