    The Houston Rockets has too many players on the team. They will have to cut four guys. They will most likely cut Devin Gray, Tony Massenberg, Matt Bullard. I don't know who else would be cut from the roster. Who do you think will get cut from the roster?

    Actually, that would be a 13 man roster with 3 guys on the injured reserve. So you actually need to lose one person on the "roster". I think it's a matter of who they won't re-sign. There's no real roster as of yet.

    They won't cut Bullard, they will probably cut Devin Grey, trade Bryce Drew, not sign Massenburg, and eventhough I don't want to see it happen they will probably cut Pig.

    Devin Grey = free agent .. dont count him.
    1 of The next two might be resigned if we're not able to get the player we want.
    Massenburg FA
    Pig FA
    Moochie.. will be resigned.

    I believe Moochie Norris signed a 1 year deal for the upcoming season(he signed it during last season).

    You dont cut one of hte NBA's best 3 point shooters especially when you are playing a penetrating and dish kind of style (and when Rudy is your coach).

    I knwo all you guys think Langhi will be the next God or something, but in the actual NAB they are much quicker and much taller and much more athletic than in the RMR. Im not syaing he wont be good, but he will need some time to get there. DONT underestimate Bullard. He is not spectacular, but he shoots very very well and rarely makes many mistakes (he just doesnt make any speectacular plays either). On a championship team, BUllard is a great role player and has proved that in the past. If he was on the LAkers he would have certainly gotten some PT and probably would do pretty well in the triangle offense.

    Hopefully they'll find a way to keep Pig.

    Bullard doesn't make any spectacular plays? I have to disagree. He made one spectacular play. Remember THE blocked shot last year. Good stuff. Got to love him. [​IMG]

    I'm surprised he didn't blow out his knee like Barkley.

    Why? They signed him as a FA middle of last year. The Rockets appear to be the only NBA team that has any interest in the Pigmiester.

    I bet Pig does not make the team or IR, but is signed the first time Dream goes down next year.

    1 francis norris
    2 anderson mobley
    3 williams langhi
    4 thomas collier
    5 olajuwon cato

    bullard, pig

    anderson can play some 3, collier can play some 5, i'd keep pig and bullard as vets to backup the 3, 4, and 5

    this assumes that there's no more wheeling and dealing, the only thing we really would want would be a better 4 or 5

    I thought you could have 15 on one team. 12 on the roster and 3 on the IR.

    I wish I could sign Pig as a FA just to hang around my house (with the toothpick).
