    If Tilman does not want to increase this year budget 127 million.,

    Trade Gordon to Hawks for a future fake pick.

    Use 6 million MLE to sign Milsap

    trade 2022 pick and draft Stewart from Washington. Rebounder

    Buy 49th pick from 76ers and draft Wiley from Auburn, Rebounder

    76ers have only 4 second rounders left because they gave 2 to GSW.

    Milsap fixes most things. Would 6M secure him?

    Works for me!

    maybe the Kings. They’re currently at 12. It’s kind of like when they traded Lowry for 9... but Lowry was young and up and coming unlike EG

    Will that create cap room for a UFA?

    TF is not buying a pick. Sell yes. Buy no

    The owner is a paper billionaire. He’s not buying any picks.

    We should have traded Ryan Anderson for a first.

    More like we do the Ryno deal and send out picks to get rid of Gordon while taking back another bad contract. :rolleyes:

    No enough revenue now.

    Milsap will be 36 next year.

    So you think a 5-year deal would get him to sign?

    Don’t need to buy another 2nd round pick. We have one already from the Hopkins trade.

    The Rockets couldn’t even come up with a second round pick for him, but Miami was able to trade him very quickly.

    Riley and Jerry West have tons of friendships with GMs, and are respectful.

    read carefully, I don’t mean to trade Gordon for a First.

    Everyone was scared that the Rockets would get strong again if they got a worthwhile asset for Ryan, as improbable as it sounded. Morey ended up with the injured Knight. I'm not talking about Gordon, but I agree Houston is not likely to get a first for him, unless he miraculously recovers to full fitness.
