    I think we have a good shot, guys I think respect Westbrook. Im.serious not that they dont harden. This is not what my comment is about cause everyone know I'm the biggest harden guy...I realize its whispers in the league about him. But west whatever u think guys wanna fight for him. Except pg13 lol, after he did

    Lol we are a legit candidate tho. Even tho Lakers with all the connections n u know beaches n Hollywood are the front runners. So I always consider la or a good ny to be the preference so I dont even count those teams. So I consider us the number 1 choose for normal market teams. Not mad when guys go to l.a. or ny(when respectable lol). Do I'm super hyped we nber one other then the l.a. market

    Lakers gonna get him for sure... they just lost Boogie, they'll be desperate. Meanwhile Tilman trying to scavenge every dollar he can get.

    I don’t think Memphis cares about what Iggy wants.

    Isn’t Lakers having difficulty to open a roster spot to sign a big to replace Cousins? Wouldn’t it be difficult also to open one for Iggy as well?

    Yeah, he’s going to LA. Regardless of sources as I’m sure cyberx knows people, this could be Iggy letting stuff get out. Everything happens for a reason.

    If he brings this I'll take him. This exactly what Hou needs.

    It's really this. I bet at most they are offering him $2M. He and his agent are trying to manipulate them but Memphis is just not going to play ball with him. They are not paying him $16M to play for some other team. I just don't believe it. This is Iggy's last payday and he is not leaving that money on the table. I would love for him to come and do the Rockets a solid for getting him his contract. To acquire him on buyout is a 5 star signing but I think he is going to LA. Even just to save him for the playoffs would be worth it. I could see them release him after the trade deadline. I really need to see what TF does with EGo. This team needs to spend money to build a team and this idea of avoiding the tax is not going to lead to a title. It cost us two already.

    that would be my reaction to him signing with lakers.
    if I don't have to give up a draft pick, I would love to have him over here guarding LeBron and kwahi to give tuck a breather

    I don’t need the janitor of the rockets FO to tell me iggy wants a buy out and is considering rockets/lakers/contenders. Common sense tells me that.

    We need to get younger. The old vet route hasn't worked.
