    This whole thing is built around this weird belief that DeAndre would give up like $20 million to be here. You have people suggesting he'd sign for MLE or less money.

    I think they believe you trade for him this year, he opts out, you re-sign him for like $8 million or something.

    Not realistic at all.

    I agree, I don't think it's realistic at all.

    To me the more likely scenario is they don't make any moves unless they find a way to deal Anderson for a shorter deal (even if the intent is to stretch as a release) or something like that. Offseason pursuit of Lebron is centered around a trade OR a longshot scenario where you clear the decks (including Tucker), renounce Ariza and then get Paul and Harden to both sign below market deals in the $20 million range. You could then use your MLE to try to re-sign either Ariza (now a true free agent) or Mbah a Moute. Of course with Mbah a Moute as a free agent you could hope he doesn't get any offers and he'll sign for the 1 year raise over the deal he has now, same with Gerald Green.

    Yeah, I just don't see the Rockets moving Anderson. We don't know Morey's plan, but if it is to be roster flexible to get a chance at LeBron...he has to be cautious.

    Tyson Chandler as a buyout addition would be gold.

    Need upgrade at PF more so than C. A 4 that can do more than shoot 3ball. PF also needs to rebound and rim protect like a madman. Trade for Aaron Gordon or Stanley Johnson.

    Keep Clint and improve his back ups, trade Nerlens Noel.

    These are more

    Yeah, I'm not trying to stay here to discuss one failed dunk. I'm not trying to **** all over Capela either.

    Seems that one dunk is all YOU give a **** about. Because you win one argument (that Wesley Johnson isn't TINY compared to Capela) you think Capela had a great game.

    Nah, he had a bad game, for someone we all thought was an all-star this season. Voted for his ass about 11 times this season, as much as I could remember. Didn't even friggin matter.

    Freethrows -- finally a logical argument to make. Although this season... they're making pretty much the exact same %...
