    He has no leverage.

    Name the realistic destinations he can go, compete for a championship and that have room to give him a max? They don't exist.

    He isn't going to Orlando on the max.

    Now I’ll join in on the clutchfans, “it doesn’t benefit us so it’s fake, trash,etc” bandwagon. Don’t believe it

    I was watching The Jump's draft show last night for a short time. When the Rockets discussion came up and CP3's free agency Windhorst "off the cuff" just threw out the idea that if the Rockets had a wink-wink deal with CP3, this was done under "previous ownership", who is to say the new owner is on board with that?

    It was just speculation thrown out for 5 seconds on a 5 hour draft show.

    My guess is now Broussard "likes that idea" and it allows him a way to make an argument that CP3 could now go to LA.

    Nothing here, but "fake embers" to start a fire.

    This is how these things get out of control.

    The reason this doesn’t make sense is we obviously are going to give cp3 whatever deal he wants.

    There is no way DM and Tilman try to get cute with cp3 and save some money.

    I think it’s understood that cp3 names his contract and the rockets sign it.

    Chris Broussard has never broken a Rockets news story. He is as far from reliable when it comes to the team as anyone I know covers the NBA. Not even worth the bandwidth or video.

    CP3+Lebron + hangers on aren't competitive with GSW

    If the Lakers can even afford that.

    Quit misspelling the owners name on purpose @Carl Herrera . Tillman is barely punable. Not close to Le$ or Less.

    You help fuel actual wide-spread belief it's spelled that way. Like even Feigen spelled in Tillman in an article this week.

    ...and...#FakeNews Broussard crap to boot.

    This stuff don't matter. They're just trying to find something to talk about. It's all BS.

    Exact opposite. CP has all the leverage. He can get a Max deal almost anywhere and bring ppl to him.

    But this is fake news anyways. He will help the team out a little bit if we get players.

    I remember once I tweeted something like "Thank you, Tim!" to Tilman and he liked my tweet. Then I realized I called him Tim. I bet he gets called Tim all the time, but he gracefully liked my tweet. I felt like an idiot. I mean, I am an idiot, but I felt like one at that moment. #coolstorybro

    This is incorrect. "He can get the max anywhere" - uh, no, he can't. Not every team has max cap room or the ability to create it. Even if they did, "and bring people to him" - which would require even more cap room nobody worthwhile has.
