    GREAT idea for a thread, since it's not being discussed anywhere else.

    Or something like that.

    I would do it at the last possible second after getting the Lakers team and fan base hope up.

    Purely for basketball reasons of course.

    1. If he goes Lakers, does it a threat to us? can he upgrade Lakers
    2. Does MDA use him in playoffs?
    3. Can he upgrade Houston center and power forward position?

    Man, if the Rockets did this it would complete the Rockets heel turn. The spice level would reach Carolina Reaper levels. I want the Rockets to do it just to troll the Lakers..

    Jeff Green is interesting, but I do wonder what our second unit would look like with Morris.

    Yes, I would if I were Morey.
    This could be his last year in the NBA. The league seems intent on punishing Morey for the Hong Kong fiasco. Possible blackball by league if gets fired. Plus Morey has been chasing Morris for ever and this move adds a playable peace to the Rockets and at the same time hurts the Lakers. Even if Morris gets butt hurt and refuses to play like Iguodala it's still a win by blocking the Lakers.

    He’s killing it from the 3 point line.

    Hmm I would like to see that.

    I’d like to see Kieff at backup C with Rob/Tuck/DeMarre/House playing the Forwards to be honest.

    I need to see more Green. I’m worried he is unplayable with MC Ben. (We need to have 4 defenders on the floor with Ben)

    Interested to see the rotation adjustments. Carroll anyone?

    Plus the more depth the better never know when an injury will creep up.

    Kieff is bad at defense too, maybe worse on perimeter than both BMac and House.
