    Call me crazy but I don't think his twin will get his wishes and Kief signs with Boston. There are too many variables at on why Ainge won't make that move

    Wow, that's a potentially interesting update. If Kieff is not afraid of getting hurt, and if he rebounds and plays some defense, he can be an asset. If he really wants to play with Marcus again, then Morey should go after Tolliver if he bought out quickly, or even Beasley as a last resort 4.

    i wouldn't touch beasley, but tolliver is a solid vet to consider. problem is we still can't sign any of these guys for another 10 days, so other teams are going to have the upper hand

    How much is any owners tied up in liquid assets?

    Most owners have other businesses.

    Morey to Kieff: "you know we'd be a great fit, playoff team, you're alongside Harden and Paul and those guys will make life on the court a dream.
    We know others are interested, go check out what they are saying, but remember our situation is best for you. But do your due diligence. Take your time! There's no rush!!"

    So if the Rockets sign Markieff before the 21st or whatever exact date then the Rockets would eventually be put over the luxury tax for this season? Meaning they wasted a 1st round pick and two second rounders for nothing?
