    Agreed. That trade only makes sense for the Rockets and Hawks. Lakers give up the best player in the deal and get back the worst player and a low draft pick?

    Good point! My thought process would be Scola is a better fit when you consider J. Smith would be taking shots from Kobe and Bynum. Scola is more of a "trash" player - meaning he doesn't need plays run for him and plays well off others. His best years were when he was playing off Yao and mcgrady. Plus I was thinking that #18 might be worth something to the Lakers. This is a mighty deep draft and if someone falls in that range they like (P. jones?) it might tip the scales in the rockets direction.

    Unintentional I'm sure, but I think you nailed while any team would prefer Smith to Scola.

    I think money is the #1 reason LA will have trouble unloading Gasol. Sure he's got plenty left in the tank but at that price? They can't expect to get much back.

    Is anyone surprised Morris hasn't been dealt? Is it because he is unproven and no team wants him or do the Rockets believe he can be the real deal?

    but in Morey I trust. :grin:

    I'm surprised Lowry or Martin haven't been moved yet. I suspect one will be today/tonight.

    John Canzano ‏@JohnCanzanoBFT

    No. 9 (Pistons): John Henson, North Carolina center, is the pick here. They need a big. So they go big. #nbadraft

    John Canzano ‏@JohnCanzanoBFT

    No. 8: Raptors will try to trade this pick... possibly to a team that would take C Andre Drummond #nbadraft

    Rudy Gay would not make me "super happy." In fact in would make me super frustrated. Rudy Gay's game doesn't excite me in the least.
