    Would like this a lot.

    Fournier's qualifying offer from the Magic would be a minimum of $3,278,996 .....


    I like his game.

    Something frustrating to me is that the Rockets are always in waiting games!

    Come on, let's get some decisions!

    I laughed when I read about it.

    It is the prototypical Kings acquisition.

    So what's your idea? sign a restricted free agent who's going to get matched anyway and eat half of your cap space for three days?

    No, haha, I'm not saying the Rockets are doing anything wrong. It's just frustrating as a fan. I hate waiting out these free agent deals.

    Probably what Baze wants. But if I am the Rockets I point to Jordan Carkson's 4/50 contract. Then meet in the middle. 4/60

    None of the guys the Rockets are working on.

    Both of our guys (Horford and Bazemore) are going to be "We are interested if other things don't work out" like Bosh was.

    You don't think Bazemore has more/same value as Turner?
