    Both Morris twins were selected ahead of Kahwi in the draft.

    Literally.

    Morris wants to have fun again? Not shocked, played three years with the Wizards.

    I think there were also other rumors about CP3 leaving some money on the table if necessary to get Lebron here...at least i think i read this somewhere.

    If healthy, he'd be a good rotation player for us. I'd be happy with a bench of Rivers, EGo, Green, Kieff, and Faried. I'm assuming Shumpert will get the start at SF unless House is converted and gets it back. Probably as deep as could've hoped for.

    Kieff is the Power Forward who can shoot 3's and rebound.

    The phrase “.. great admiration and curiosity” has never left Morris’ lips.

    Marcus is a better shooter but Markieff is a much better defender.

    We're 1 step away from being 1 step away from the 1-yard line.

    Before we sign him, we should see what Cyberx thinks of him. ;)

    Houston is very much a Team FOE type of city.

    I honestly thought that it was a foregone thing that he would sign, plus his injury holding him out for a little while to become cheaper.

    Getting a PF with an actual PF body might help curb Clint’s rebounding percentage.

    It’s tough for Morey to stomach a non 6’8 or under PF, but Morey’s gotta do what he’s gotta do for daddy Tilly.

    He would be reunited with pj and green from the phoenix days also. pretty much comes down to the health and whether they can avoid another Brandon Wright situation

    he used to be... marcus has surpassed him, but I am hoping that is because of the toxic locker room in washington and he can perform a lot better in a different environment.

    a lot of teams will be chasing him. OKC is looking for backup PF also and tried to trade patterson and a second round pick for tolliver but they turned it down.
