    Do you think Minnesota would do this trade with Capela being the main piece of what we give up?

    Is this a good trade for the Rockets?

    You think Minny would want Capela with KAT?

    I’ll take the 2k18 approach here: KAT + Wiggins + butler for CC + Nene. * trade override on, *salary cap off

    Yes. They likely wouldn’t want him to pair him with Kat (unless Thibs is just dumb like that), would likely have to be a 3 team deal.

    Yes. As long as he would commit long term.

    You can go get DAJ in the offseason or maybe even after buyout.

    As long as we're playing fantasy GM, what about Kiwi Lenard?

    Ben Simmons would be the perfect replacement for TA.

    Yes, in a heartbeat.

    Minnesota however would probably block Morey's number after the hysterical laughing.

    No way. Butler has already peaked. Capela most likely hasn't. Also, plenty of players like Butler out there. Capela brings a pretty unique skillset.

    Y'all are way undervaluing Capela, and by far the best outcome here for us is to lock Clint up long-term. Anything else is a consolation prize.

    Yes most would / should trade for Butler >> he is a top 25 player in the league. CC is a system role player a very good role player but still a role player.

    This question is almost as bad as “do you think [Player X] would play well in the [different era of basketball]?”

    Everyone has a role to play. Butler’s role is to sit on the bench injured while his skills and athleticism continue to decline rapidly.
