    Basically...

    It's time. Make them unprotected If you have to. It is time to cash in and go for it. Overpay if you have to.

    I get that there may be a few things for Morey to pull off, but... when I read articles like this, or tweets.. etc, I read it as -

    “I have no idea how he could do it, or if he even could do it, but he needs to do it.”

    As if there are all star caliber players available for free.

    Agree, picks have more trade values than players were acquired this season.
    Two month ago Chuck declared Morey need to make a good trade.

    Right? I mean we all know he offered 4 first round picks for Jimmy Butler. We can safely assume he's made offers for guys like Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard. But the other teams kind of have to accept the offers.

    Yup, that is why it was a bad idea to have all this turnover, we were RIGHT THERE last year.

    Ugh, you again with your whining.

    I didn't see anyone complaining about all the roster turnover when we attained CP3 and added PJ Tucker as a free agent.

    Only difference is our moves worked prior to last season, this season not so much. It wouldn't have helped much if we had just stood pat either so get over it.

    It has to add future salary to improve the rosters permanently, otherwise Morey will rely on buyout players every season.

    Everyone knows this.... but we cannot make deals that arent there to make.

    Has to present itself and be perfect for us to pull off.

    The NBA has to cooperate with Morey. The NBA (even House Jr.) does not want to cooperate with Morey or the Rockets. You think Morey is just sitting on his ass? He has a cheap owner that is handcuffing him. You got GM's not wanting to take 4 FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICKS. You got GM's giving Ariza 15 million a year just to trade him before halftime.

    Morey wouldn't have been able to trade for 4th string Faried if he tried.

    The whole offseason drama is all about Lakers vs Warriors WCF. L.A media wants all the stars in L.A even create lies and rumors to get why they want.

    To become a bid winner.
    Overpay example
    Knight/Chriss + 2 Firsts for Mirotic and Randle?

    All Morey has to do is find a way to get the disgruntled Jimmy Butler trade to happen. Rockets can handle anyone with the following squad:

    Guards..........Forwards............Centers
    Harden............Butler................ Capela
    Paul.................Tucker.............. Faried


    Them healthy with a few guys who can knock down some 3's and I think you can put a banner in the rafters this year.
