    Melo to H-town w/CP3 or
    Melo to HollyWood w/LBJ
    Let's reduce this down:
    Melo to H-Town
    Melo to HollyWood
    WWMD?

    Brother @BigggReddd has been with us from the beginning and he's seen it all. Many honorable mention fall prey to the treacherous area of the basketball court known as The Baseline

    We can always slide Tucker at the 3 and play Melo (which will get stretched 100% imo) at the 4, but yeah...we need to get someone for the spot, also cause we still don't have Luc back.

    Btw, the Wizards have Markieef expiring too and you know he's not staying there unless they'll pay him...Anderson will expire next season, he's a great fit next to Dwight bla bla (lol, i'm telling you this Grunfeld) and will resign for cheap since nobody wants him...Porter for Ryan, Jackson and Nanu make sense especially cause Oubre will replace Porter eventually.

    BOOM

    Grunching here, but Otto had a down year last year and the Wizards are having buyer's remorse with his max deal. Personally, i do believe he'd be a better fit in Houston.

    There's actually pretty good incentive to get the deal done w/o picks.

    Rockets send out:

    Gordon
    Anderson


    Wizards send out:

    Porter
    Frazier (filler)
    Lawson (fillerr)


    Rockets don't even have to send out picks.


    Why would the Wizards do this? They just drafted Troy Brown 15th who is really talented and plays the same position as Porter.

    I'd be sad to see Gordon go, but I would really really like the improvement at the SF position from Ariza to Porter. Porter is younger, more athletic, a better shooter.

    Only problem would be trying to figure out what to do with that 3rd guard spot...I don't know...

    If the Rockets could somehow pry away Porter using just Anderson + picks that would be the most optimal option if its financially feasible.

    Bad comparisons

    Lebron and Harden can afford to take plays off because of their offensive weight carrying.

    Otto Porters job is specifically to be a 3 & D guy.

    The Movement agrees; Otto Porter has MVP type game

    I don't think he deserves that contract, he's never going to be an all star imo, but yeah, would be a great fit here.

    It's not his fault that the Chicago Bulls went with LED bulbs that increases glare through his goggles.

    Lmfao it's one gif, not an entire highlight reel. He's a capable defender, and a decade younger than Ariza.

    In all seriousness if the Wizards decide to roll the dice with Dwight more perimeter shooting at the 4 would open up the floor for everyone. A change of scenery might do Anderson good.

    I have no doubt that Ryan would do somehow better in another team cause even if he would get worse looks, he would at least be free from the Toyota Center problem he has, pretty sure other teams know about this but i can also see them using this as leverage in trade talks, i hated Ryan signing because of the contract we gave him, but we also got screwed super hard by this thing.
