    Keep in mind, Sabonis played with Westbrook and was a scrub before he became a young center with potential in Indiana

    Rockets fans are just desperate for anybody at this point. It's kind of sad. Absolutely not worth yet another pick as if we have an unlimited supply, and House certainly has potential. I think a lot of people are overrating Sabonis.

    The Pacers hang up the phone and laugh. House’s start to this season and end to last season are not at the same level of a Sabonis. (Late FRP doesn’t even it up either). To get Sabonis would take Capela going to the Pacers that’s no a good trade for us because Sabonis wants to get paid big and Capela can switch on defense. Sabonis is out of our league because we don’t have the players that the Pacers need back for him. Our best bet is to play Hartenstein till he is playable.

    Who starts for the Pacers if Sabonis was traded for a wing?

    I would but realistically the Pacers would ask more than that, probably Tucker too, and other teams will probably offer more anyway.

    Our PF is giving us 3-5 ppg. I'd give up a lot to get little Sabonis.

    No, contract for House is better long term and he has potential. Plus Sabonis off the bench is not something he’d want nor something we’d need more than a strong defensive SF to compensate for Harden and WB. I’ll take my chances with House and Tucker and Gordon & Thabo as their backups rather than Gordon & Tucker with Thabo & Sabonis as backups.

    No. Because Danuel House is the only real small forward on our roster. I'm happy with Capela and Chandler as our bigs.
