    I like this group of guys a lot. However, I think we should keep KJ over Bev to have the versatility and athleticism on the perimeter.

    Fair enough. Id take him at the right price. Wouldn't give him the max, but id pay 12per.

    Well, there's an owner calling the shots, and he doesn't like the rebuilding process.

    Priority #1. Trade for Lance Stephensons $9mil team option contract. Then decline the option

    Brewer + 2nd for Stephenson

    That's a fair price i guess, the problem is that 90% he'll get more, probably around 17/18...i wouldn't be shocked if someone ends up paying him 20x.

    Why on earth would they not just exercise the option? Don't you think 9m in space is worth more than Corey Brewer and a 2nd round pick (which is roughly worth $1m)?

    I wonder what it would take to trade for Teague.

    I suppose they might want to go young and build around Schroder. Perhaps a deal centered around Capela could do it.

    Trade Beverley for a late 1st(no salary in return)

    Dump Brewer using Dekker and a 2nd, Trade Capela, KJ and picks for Teague

    Waive/renounce Dmo, Jones, Goudlock, Terry, Smith

    Sign Horford to his max, sign Dudley for 6-7mill, If Howard opts in keep him, if he opts out sign Whiteside to his max.

    Teague
    Harden
    Ariza / Dudley
    Horford / Beasley / Harrell
    Howard(or Whiteside)

    That would probably be the best free agency I could imagine outside of landing Durant.

    I think with a coach like Bud running the show is almost impossible to expect a team to rebuild, a coach will always prefer a ready to ball team...

    Anyway, if they lose Bazemore, they may be interested in Ariza, and looking at the point guards market plus the fact that Teague just played a "meh" season, i think Teague may be not that expensive in a trade...maybe Ariza (again, if they need a 3 at free agency ended) could be enough. Teague is good, but not that good, and he's an expiring contract looking to get paid in the free agency with the biggest (by far) salary cap ever so...

    Capela...i don't think they're interested in him, they already have a young center like Tavares.

    They were interested in D.Mo, an Hawks insider said this, but he also said we were asking too much.

    Here, if they lose Bazemore without being able to sign someone to replace him, i can definitely see something like Ariza + D.Mo for Teague with something next, maybe even a simple Ariza for Teague if he asks out.

    It's going to be a disaster since the Rockets are not smart enough to rebuild.
    I'd definitely talk to Biyombo, but he will be very bid.
    Point Guard MUST BE FIXED. Look at the Sixers striking gold with Ish- it can be done. Unfortunately, the fat pig GM has constantly screwed up this position.

    One other thing: people suggesting to trade Harden and end up with Blake Griffin. Harden is twice the player Griffin is.

    Who do you think developed Ish in Philly? And Rockets have had GREAT success with locating and developing PGs under Morey: Brooks, Lowry, Dragic and Beverley

    Well aware of how many PGs we've let go because Maury debases the position.

    What do you think sliding Harden to SF and offering a poision pill contract to Bradley Beal?

    Trade Bev, Ariza, Brewer

    ???/???
    Beal/KJ
    Harden/KJ/Dekker
    Harrell/ Beasley
    Horford/Capela

    I would move Harden to PG before I move him to SF.

    I do like the idea of signing Beal though

    Harden/Bev
    Beal/Tucker
    Ariza/Dudley
    Horford/Beasley
    Capella/?
