    Here's a quick summary if anyone doesn't want to listen.

    Bill Simmons
    Simmons thinks the best place for Westbrook would be the Pistons. Supposedly they have the cap space to bring him in? @BimaThug DET would send Derrick Rose back to HOU.

    Also an interesting tidbit, Tilman would never allow Harden to PHI. He has heard rumors that TF isn't happy with Morey.

    He did bring up an interesting point, you would have a better team by trading Harden because Harden would bring back better pieces to surround Westbrook than vice-versa.

    Russillo
    He believes that Russ wants his own team and the ball in his hands. The culture stuff is more about Russ not being about to dictate how and what happens. He had a say in everything in OKC and now he doesn't in HOU.

    Russillo said ORL is not interested. NYK have built a front office that has relationships with young NBA stars so they can be ready when they want out. If anyone wants to do it, Charlotte would be his guess.

    I believe this is the THIRD time he has brought up Patrick as if Patrick is the one who really pushed his dad to make this deal.

    imagine trading Harden to bring about better pieces to build around 1st round exit Russ

    trading Russ for whatever decent role players u can get and signing a legit big in free agency would make us better than last year

    Tough chit, #Tilman. YOU ran him out of town. YOU handcuffed his moves. Look in the mirror, pal.

    It would be crazy if TIlman won't trade to PHI, Ben Simmons and Fox from SAC are the best young players out there. Devin Booker also, if he's gettable.

    Harden for Simmons is by far the best move for the organization. If they don't do it, it would be yet another nail in the Rockets coffin under Tillman's ownership.

    Simmons will probably never be as good as Harden has been but at least you get back an all star to build around. Then trade Russ for Myles Turner or some other young floor spacing big. You could rebuild a young playoff team on the fly. Without that, this team has no future.

    You can trade Russ for Love and #runitback but eventually Harden will force a trade and you'll be left with the remnants of Love and the scraps you get when a past his prime Harden forces a trade. On top of that it will come at the worst moment as we wouldn't have any of our top picks.

    Rose and Wood S&T for WB would be really nice. Doubt Pistons would do it though.

    I've had enough of point guards that can't shoot already. Pass on Simmons especially if it's for Harden.

    Simmons is 5 inches taller than our center (same height as Anthony Davis). He's really more of a PF with excellent ball handling and passing ability.

    Yeah but he's a point guard. If you move him to PF or C he loses all of his effectiveness at playmaking which is one of his strongest abilities.

    Isn't this the exactly same logic that led OKC to trade Harden to Houston and that got panned for?

    Patrick is involved in all the basketball decisions.... including coaching and player personnel decisions. It is the drawback of having a”family” owned team.

    Patrick’s involvement will only grow with time as well.

    To further nook's point, Tilman fertita himself has on multiple occasions prominently mention Patrick by name when talking about the rockets front office.

    Wouldn't he just become a point forward or point center then?

    Patrick is running through trade simulations on NBA2k1 as we speak. I wonder if he's an XBox or PS5 guy.

    Simmons and Rusillo can go suck each other off some more.

    And stop slandering Patrick!!!

    Patrick is working on bringing in Battier and signing Ibaka while Stone is still trying to figure out twitter.

    He is a point forward people.

    Rockets have played with 2 points before.

    CP3 and Russ ring any bells?

    He's actually playing as the Lakers on GM mode and is just waiting to see what trades the computer will make for the Rockets then he'll copy that.

    "The computer just traded James Harden for Aaron Gordon, Terrence Ross, and Al-Farouq Aminu?? Well if NBA2K says it's okay..."
