    Had a talk with someone close to the Rockets. JB will be the Rockets main target this summer and they feel like they have more than a good shot to get him.

    Is this a 2-yard line situation or one step away?

    um...is that even allowed?

    I've never seen or heard of an NBA player restructuring a contract.

    I know Butler and Harden are extremely close but Jimmy B is a nutcase and a team chemistry poison if he is not in the right mood

    We are 2-yards from one step away from one step from the 2-yard line...

    When does Harden's mega-max kick in? Is there a window in which Morey can get the team to $30,000,000 below the luxury tax? Or does he think he can poach Jimmy B with EGO + whatever and picks, and Philly will go along (and let us remember that Sam Hinkie is long gone from the GM chair over there)?

    I guess we're doing the Butler watch all over again. Buckle your seat belts.

    given we just brought back T Jones and were talking Ray Allen, I suspect he meant Carron Butler.

    not getting my hopes up...potential 3rd stars don’t seem all that interested in coming here

    We have no money. Sign and trade? Jimmy probably looking at other destinations before Houston...destinations that have cap space available and are willing to sign him

    I’ve noticed that Butler does not get enough shots or opportunities in Philly...I’ve watched many of their games, and I forget that he’s even on the floor for long stretches...they’ve got so many guys who need to eat

    Harris just arrived, and it seems like he’s already getting more opportunities than Jimmy

    Philly would be giving Jimmy a max to be like 70% of what he is
