    Spacing! Rockets have discussed looking into a Klove trade. Would imagine it would include CC and others. Rockets see him as a smart player than will add more outside shooting. Also interested in McGee as a backup shot blocker off the bench.

    He can when he plays which is NEVER.

    Rockets need to stay far away from this guy. I can't believe they're even entertaining this idea. It's only fitting that we would have two injury prone players on our team in cp and klove.

    Assuming he can still get to the basket. I always thought the perfect PNR partner for him could set the pick and roll hard to the rim, get a pass and stepback into a three, or make a smart pass. I know Love can do the last two.

    We should have just kept Ryan Anderson if that's the case.

    Hey, Love can always hang his defensive hat onto staying with Curry on his shot in that final NBA Finals game.

    Soo the pattern is look at the players that Morey coveted 4 years ago and then acquire them past their term of effectiveness? I like KLoves 3 ball and rebounding, but injury is a huge concern with this guy. "Your best ability is availability"

    Love is always injured. That said he could be a great fit. Seems would could be doubling down on our CP3 situation. Former superstar who lacks athleticism and has injury concerns. That said, if in only costs us CC, then I'd do it. The narrative for this team the last 2 years is we are designed to beat GS. I feel it's the opposite. Two years in a row we can beat everybody but Golden State and Capela is a main reason.

    Hopefully we don't become to weak at the Center position. Reminds me of the Barkley trade actually. We finally got good enough to beat Seattle, then we didn't match up with Utah as well.
