    So, I wonder if the Rockets are or will get involved in this possible sign and trade to get Rubio...

    hmm...

    I don't think it will end up meaning anything for Houston.

    Woj shut it down. PHX is not interested in a S+T with Minny, so the max offer means nothing

    If the Wolves want Bledsoe what happens with Rubio or are Bledsoe and Rubio mutually exclusive. That Wolves squad with with Bledsoe would be a force to deal sooner than anyone would think.

    All this means is Flip tried to dump salary, upgrade the PG position, and Phoenix laughed in their face.

    Also means that Phoenix is probably serious about keeping Bledsoe.

    As for Rubios future in Minny, it doesn't really mean anything. All indications are that they will have him back at a very fair value contract which is probably more than he can expect if he hits free agency next year. The fact that a superior pg in Bledsoe didn't get a max offer, and he's going to have huge competition in Rondo and Dragic doesn't bode well for his hopes at a huge pay day.

    There is no reason on earth for Flip to trade him to a predatory team since he most likely can be retained on the cheap next year, traded in feb, or just allowed to walk.

    I'm sure Morey will poke around but I don't see any reason either side finds a deal that makes sense for reasons I just mentioned.

    I don't see the connection. The Wolves go after Bledsoe so we are all of a sudden going after Rubio

    Besides...Rubio sucks.

    Rubio is the Latin Lin, just a better passer and a worse scorer.
