    If we sub in Nene for the next 10 games, does his cap # increase in trades from $2.5 MM to $5 MM? He'll have hit the incentive and there's no way to "un-hit" a Games Played target.

    All of the sources mentioned that Morey couldn't magically turn 2.5$ into 10$ and back into $2.5 once traded.

    I know people including Bima Thug said this wasn't possible but I'm seriously wondering if we can fully guarantee his incentives and trade him at $10 but that means he's $10 + $2.5 guaranteed next season. The Rockets didn't fight harder on this and I wonder if something was agreed upon with the league that never leaked.

    Interesting - can you remove incentives from a contract and just guarantee the salary? @BimaThug / other capologists, would love your insight here

    Bima previously said no.

    Morey didn't fight harder on the league's ruling and this was an unprecedented move by the league to deny this contract as others have done it before. It makes me think that an agreement was made behind the scenes.

    Celts are struggling with rim protection, Love solves that problem.

    Not at all.

    Makes no sense. Why would it not be leaked? GMs needs to know all the stipulations. I would agree it appears Rockets should have fought harder, but I’m sure if we saw what was happening behind closed doors it would make more sense. It’s BS. That contract would have done wonders for our team and was within the rules. But I’m totally beating a dead horse by bringing it up again.

    Lakers and Heat had done it within the past few years. Made zero sense why the Rockets were denied on it. There had to be something else there. Why is Nene even signed? He didn't show at training camp or media day, and hasn't even shown up to a single game or practice. It makes no sense for anyone involved.

    There’s nothing else there. As to why Nene is signed, didn’t he opt out of a contract and then sign this? They probably had to make good on their word. If not that then he was simply signed as trade bait

    Can't get Love. No salary ballast. Why?

    Capela is a guy to pair Love with not trade for.

    So basically what we gave up for Iman Shumpert, we could have gotten Kevin Love.

    Well done, Tilman. Well done.

    Morey really misses these steal deals. He hasn’t done one since the harden trade

    Coulda not traded for Westbrook, kept all the picks. Signed Nene and Shump to 10 mil per year trade chips. Landed Love for their expiring and a first.

    Paul / Rivers / Clemons
    Harden / Gordon / Mclemore
    Tucker / House/ Thabo
    Love / Clark
    Capela / Chandler / Hartenstein

    So much spacing and shooting, and we still would have all our picks.

    Really can't emphasize how much Tilman completely ****ed us over.

    Why are y’all just ignoring that Harden was done with CP3? What happens if he goes through another year of Chris Paul and they still don’t manage to get it done?

    No worries. We still have the protected first round pick for 2050.

    That's a roster if motivated and healthy could challenge that 2018 team that was by far our best shot at the title.
